Job description, responsibilities and duties

Our developers work in a development team, which builds our antivirus products and support applications. As a developer, you will be in charge of ensuring that the detection core can perform all its functions, which means that you will provide it with the necessary data from the system/Kernel mode, specific settings, prepare plugins, and work on the user interface and supplementary applications. The unit of which you will be a part is also involved in developing functionalities that are not directly related to malware detection.

This type of work is ideal for programmers who like to dabble in Kernels, revel in crash dumps, but also all those who just love to analyze, debug and program business logic. This is something that will be right up your alley if you like working with network protocols, enjoy making the GUI user-friendly or look forward to working with JSON, XML and other script languages.

Other benefits

Bottomless drinks for all! Enjoy coffee, tea, juice or mineral water and other beverages to your heart’s content.

You will not go hungry. For each working day at ESET you will receive meal vouchers, fully reimbursed by the company. And should hunger strike during the day, you can grab a healthy snack in one of the kitchenettes.

Whether you commute by car, tram, bicycle or by foot, you are entitled to a transportation allowance once on board with ESET.

We support your personal development to help you grow on the job. You can attend a number of training courses, presentations, professional conferences and, best of all, you can improve your language skills, compliments of ESET.

We don’t want you to spend the whole day sitting behind a computer. Head out to the fitness center to lift the body and spirit.

We think family comes first. That’s why for your life’s milestones, such as wedding or birth of your children, in addition to our warmest congratulations, we also give you a financial contribution.

Even though we don’t have the fountain of youth, we can offer the next best thing – we contribute to your retirement savings.

Work hard, play hard. This is what we believe in and that’s why we organize a number of events for our employees throughout the year to relax and enjoy leisure time together.

The tools and technologies used on the job:

A developer in this position will almost certainly come into contact with a battery of tools such as Microsoft Visual Studio, WinDbg, VirtualKD, Dependency Walker, ProcMon, Process Explorer, Wireshark and WinMerge. What’s more, some members of the Windows application team use VirtualBox, VMware or write code using Windows API, C++, Perl, Python, Java Scripts or HTML. We actively use supporting tools such as Git, Jira and Confluence − but it’s up to you: we will be happy to provide you with all the additional tools you may need.
We are really big on effectiveness in everything we do, we do regular code reviews and check the performance of our applications.

The advantages

You can look forward to working on big projects which benefit tens of millions of users, and do so with a team of experts, from whom you can learn a thing or two about hacking and operating systems, drivers, or system diagnosis.

Are you cut out for the job?

You will feel right at home if C++ programming is your cup of tea. If you also have experience with real-world projects, can solve hard problems and know your way around OS Internals we would like to welcome you to our team.


Brief description of the company

The beginnings of ESET date back to 1987, when two young programming enthusiasts, Peter Paško and Miroslav Trnka, wrote a program for the detection of one of the world’s first computer viruses. They did not know that they had created one of the most successful antivirus programs in the world – dubbing it NOD. In 1992, together with their mutual friend Rudolf Hrubý, they formally established ESET.

What started as the brainchild of a few friends has evolved into the most valuable international brand of any Slovak company. Today ESET’s NOD32 technology protects over 100 million users across the world.

This success did not come overnight. The company’s global success and growth was given a boost in 1998 with its first “VB100” award from the prestigious Virus Bulletin magazine. Since then, we’ve received this accolade more than 80 times.

Today, over 1,000 employees around the world drive the company’s success − more than 450 of them in Slovakia, the home of ESET headquarters. We put great emphasis on research and development. In addition to seven regional centers, we are building a network of technology centers around the world – at present numbering nine.

Throughout the company’s expansion, we have stayed true to the principles on which we were founded, and we remain independent in order to continue to meet new challenges.
