Vonage Engineering Mission

Are you passionate about software development?  Are you familiar with the Windows ecosystem? Are you a polyglot who can speak several languages like C/C++ and C#? Are you a .Net Framework and/or .Net Core ninja? If yes, you’ll love this!

As one of our engineers in the native squad in the team in charge of maintaining and enhancing the video client SDKs, you’ll take part in the future of our SDK for Windows. Your help will be valuable to keep the Windows SDK as a reference SDK for media streaming within the Windows community.

The native client team follows Agile methodology.  We have scrums and our sprints last two weeks.  We take part in the usual rituals: sprint planning, backlog grooming, and retrospectives, to name a few.

We also have monthly Hack Days and Tech Debt Days.  Hack Day is when developers get to hack on anything of their choosing so can play with anything you want not only Windows.  Some choose to do R&D.  Some choose to work on a pet project.  Others choose to learn something new, by watching a tech talk, for example.  The only requirements are that you have fun and share in what you learned.  Tech Debt Day is reserved for handling tech debt.  Developers have free range over what they want to tackle.  (Even though we have Tech Debt Days, we also make room to handle more substantial tech debt items.)

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
