Job description, responsibilities and duties

What does working as C++ Developer entail?

C++ developers are involved in developing server-side software and cloud micro-services, which enables administrators to manage, monitor and configure ESET security products deployed on individual devices.

A typical task for a C++ developer working in our team could be as follows: implementing a new network protocol, data replication micro-service or a task scheduling algorithm. In addition, everything must be done with a high degree of effectiveness, because our server systems have to handle tens to hundreds of thousands of endpoints.”

The technologies used

The C++ developer’s team works on such a diverse scope of functionalities that you’ll certainly be able to find something to interest you. We can easily accommodate even the hard-core backend developer, who prefer code and algorithms, or a developer who is more oriented towards network protocols, docker or microservices.

The majority of our applications use “modern C++” code, which has to be cross-platform and accommodate Windows, Linux and OS X. We readily use Boost libraries, as well as VisualStudio, GCC and Clang for compiling. For scripting, we mostly use Python. In addition, we experiment with new languages like Go. And all our source data is stored in Git. We make good use of the “continuous integration” build system, and use Jira to store bugs and tasks in. What’s more, our internal communication is fed into the Confluence wiki system.

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

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.

Are you cut out for the job?

If your preference is programing in VisualStudio on the Windows platform, ESET is the right place for you. The same goes for Linux/GCC + Vim/Emacs. And if you value honesty as much as we do and can responsibly handle all the assigned tasks, you’d be perfect for our team. But this is not a one-way street − we are also looking forward to learning something new from you. Have a good sense of humor and agree that “the most difficult part in software development is communication?” If you answered in the affirmative, let’s talk.


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 100 times.

Today, over 1,600 employees around the world drive the company’s success – a telling increase from 3 in 1987 and 135 in 2006. Almost 900 of them are based in Slovakia, the home of ESET headquarters.

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.
