Software Engineer – Berkshire, UK

Pexip is a software company based in Oslo, Norway and Twyford, UK. We develop video conferencing solutions that allow companies to use different video technologies (Skype, web browsers, room systems, Android and iOS devices) all in the same video meeting. Our software decodes and mixes the video and audio of hundreds of participants – located anywhere in the world – in real time, and also allows those participants to chat and share presentations with each other.

This substantial sales team and a robust, functionally-rich product means Pexip is now firmly established in the market and enjoying strong commercial growth.

Pexip software is used by several Fortune 500 companies across a variety of industries. Customers include Vodafone, Western Union, Statoil, Arup, and others leading in their fields. The technology powers a large number of the world’s Videoconferencing as a Service (VCaaS) providers.

Software Development Engineers: graduate entry level and experienced engineers. £35k to £60k + share options + benefits

As a part of Pexip’s R&D team you will contribute to the Pexip Infinity meeting platform. A day’s work might vary from suggesting a new feature for the product, designing and implementing it, adding the necessary tests to our continuous integration infrastructure or studying a snapshot from a customer site to diagnose a bug. It’s a small, supportive team and whilst everyone has their specialist areas of knowledge all are keen to help out across the product.
Development follows a fast pace – we redeploy our product within R&D every night for our own use the next day, so we’re relying on our continuous integration system to keep things on track. You’ll need to be happy to work in an environment where your work will have a large and immediate impact on the product.

Experience that would be helpful includes

  • Python and Object Oriented Programming
  • Video conferencing protocols: SIP, H.323 and WebRTC in particular
  • Large-scale distributed systems
  • Strong interest in event-driven network programming
  • Linux administration
  • IOS/Objective C, Android/Java application development
  • UX/UI
  • Optimizing code for battery/memory/CPU

Work Permits etc

We will consider candidates currently based in either the UK or mainland Europe who:

  • Are in possession of a work permit that allows unrestricted and ongoing work in the UK.
  • Have an automatic and unrestricted right to live and work in the UK.

Sadly we cannot consider applicants:

  • From outside the UK who require work permit sponsorship.
  • In the UK on adependency visa.
  • With very high interview travel costs (i.e. those based in the USA, Australia, India etc).

  • Competitive salary.
  • Generous (HMRC registered) stock option scheme
  • Bupa health insurance (individual and family)
  • Death in service insurance
  • Permanent health insurance
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Pension (matched contributions to a maximum of 5% of salary).
