The impact you can have

SonarSource’s C/C++ code analyzer is designed to fulfill the need of any C/C++ developer: spotting tricky quality issues as fast as possible while generating very little noise. Dereferences of null pointers, memory leaks, dead code, logic flow errors … are some examples of those quality issues. The analyzer is compatible with the mainstream C/C++ compilers: clang, gcc, visualc++ and arm.

By joining the C-Family team, you’ll be fully involved in the development of this C/C++ analyzer and have the opportunity to face this ultimate challenge to analyze what is probably the most complex language in the world: C++.

On a daily basis, you will contribute to the development of one of the biggest codebases at SonarSource. This codebase includes the code analyzer itself as well as the integrations with various different C/C++ compilers, integrations with build tools and IDEs. You will be in a team where continuous integration is not just a buzzword and which really cares to provide the best user experience. Get a chance to face challenges down to OS kernel level and up to user interface.

We look for dedicated software developers who enjoy thinking their software through while delivering valuable features continuously.

  • Strong proven experience in Java and C++ languages along with their development environment to understand end-users context and expectations
  • Curious and eager to learn
  • Bold and self-confident to challenge the status quo as well as be challenged
  • Wanting to face challenging tasks and to have fun resolving them
  • Open-minded and with a positive can-do attitude

We can consider remote workers on a case-by-case basis.
