Quintiq, part of Dassault Systèmes, is looking for a C++ Developer.
Do you like to develop server-side components? Do you have the right mentality and skill set to work on one of the most advanced planning and scheduling software packages in the world? Do you love to develop software and not see programming as a stepping stone to becoming a manager? Then being part of one of the R&D Server teams could be something for you.
The R&D Servers teams are responsible for most of the backend systems that are part of the Quintiq Application Suite. This covers a wide range of components & processes that are more backend-related than GUI-related. The heart of the Quintiq server system is formed by an in-memory transactional, configurable object model so that it can be controlled by a domain-specific procedural/functional language (DSL). Every customer runs the same backend system and the Quintiq server sees the model just as data. The complete system can run on a laptop and can be scaled up and out to suit customer needs. The components we work on include: OS abstraction layers, internationalization layers, custom high-speed memory managers, in-memory transactional system engines, Storage Engines, schedulers, language parser(s), JIT compilers, object relational mapping, internal message queues, DSL components, HPC, Integration to 3rd party systems like: Databases, Message Queues, GIS backends, LDAP Servers, SOAP servers, reporting engines. We design, build and maintain these components and extend the software in new directions to service our growing customer base.
