The JRockit Mission Control Team is Hiring
By Hirt on Nov 15, 2010
Wonderful news! If you’re interested in having one of the coolest (IMHO) jobs in software, there are three positions open right now! The JRockit Mission Control team is looking for kick-ass software engineers to help develop the next generation, low overhead, production class profiling and diagnostics tools for Java.
In my opinion a few of the greatest aspects of the job are:
- You have the opportunity to code on both the client and (if you want to) inside the JVM.
- You will work with and help solve very tricky problems.
- Since performance in both the JVM and the tools themselves matter greatly, you will work with advanced data structures and algorithms.
- Collaborate with great Oracle internal teams, such as WebLogic Server and Coherence.
- Work with high profile customers with large scale deployments.
- Since Mission Control will be available in the merged JRockit/Hotspot (often jokingly referred to as HotRockit) code base, your work will literally be reaching millions.
What we are looking for:
- MSc or BSc in comp. sci. or equivalent.
- A problem solver with good knowledge in algorithms, data structures and complexity.
- Solid Java programming skills.
- Experience with SWT and Eclipse programming is preferred but not required.
Senior software engineering position in the Stockholm area, Sweden, responsible for feature development in the JRockit Mission Control tools suite. Help lead efforts on the JRockit Mission Control team to enhance existing code as well as define, develop, and deliver new innovative technologies that generate industry-leading JVM diagnostic functionality, performance profiling, and availability for Solaris, Linux and Windows. Additional job responsibilities include working with Oracle internal teams, external developers, licensees, customers, and partners to help define new requirements for future releases. Strong background with Java, JVMs, serviceability (or diagnostic frameworks), runtimes, synchronization, multi-threading and multi-processing preferred. Solid foundation in algorithms, data structures and complexity required. Must have expert level Java programming and debugging skills and moderate level C/C++ development skills. Experience with SWT and Eclipse is preferred. Great leadership, coordination, and communication skills are required.
