Brave is looking for an experienced Software Engineer to work on new features for our Chromium-based desktop browser. Help us make the desktop version of Brave amazing on Windows, Linux, and macOS.
Brave is on a mission to save privacy on the web. We make a web browser which protects privacy by blocking tracking by default, right out of the box. We offer completely private ads as an optional alternative to the invasive surveillance online so that you can directly contribute to the sites you visit and appreciate.
Brave is a start-up, and we have the ability to change plans quickly in response to new information or circumstances. This means that new needs can emerge on short notice, and projects are often re-mixed and adjusted in response to new input. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to influence those choices and other areas of the team.
Responsibilities will include:
Work with our product development team to collaborate on designs and specs and bring them to life on Brave’s desktop browser.
Helping to customize the native UI provided by Chromium to add new product features and modify existing features. These UI elements include toolbars, modals, buttons, and more.
Implementing back-end browser features, hooking in to existing Chromium components, and providing APIs to access those features from web content or other Chromium components.
Deliver code which is well tested with high confidence (unit tests, browser tests).
Work alongside and learn from our experienced Chromium engineers - helping with peer reviews and helping improve our engineering processes.
Expertise with CSS for building UI within web content
Experience with a class-based object-oriented language, such as Java, C#, PHP, Objective-C or C++. C++ expertise or experience with Chromium is not required, but a willingness to learn and the ability to grasp the concepts quickly will be expected.
Knowledge of the importance of various UI accessibility techniques
Understanding of performance impact and how both to measure and make improvements
