full time Software Developer

at Vivox in Framingham, MA

Mercer Road Corp. (Vivox) is the leading provider of voice chat for online games. We love
games, and we are passionate about using communication to make them more social,
interactive, and fun. We partner with the best game publishers, including Ubisoft,
Wargaming, Nexon, Sony, Zenimax, CCP, and other top game publishers to deliver in-game
chat to millions of players on PC, consoles and mobile.

We are seeking uniquely talented software developers who want to be part of a rare opportunity with a small and special software development team.

What’s special about Mercer Road Corp.?

  • We are start-up sized with start-up opportunity and transparency.
  • We are cash-flow positive with great customers, steady income, and millions of end users. (No start-up risk, but start-up smarts and energy are mandatory!).
  • We are located west of Boston. (Did the start-up thing in town and are now out in the ‘burbs’. This might be the place for you.)
  • We have Xbox 360s, Xbox Ones, PS3s and PS4s. (You can play on them – and you might be called to do so – but they are really here because the software that you write will either run on those platforms (as well as Windows, OS/X, iOS and Android) or provide services for those platforms.)

What will you find when you come develop software at Mercer Road Corp.?

  • We believe in continuous integration and test.
  • As a developer, you need to be able to write code that provides value to customers and end users and build the systems that can be used to continuously and automatically test that software.
  • We believe in being hands on.
  • There are no full-time management positions on the engineering team. Everyone designs, codes, debugs, and documents.
  • There is no dedicated QA department. Everyone writes automated tests. What tools and technologies will you be using?
  • We predominantly use C++ on all the major gaming consoles, mobile devices and PCs (for client code) and Centos (for server code). You might also run into plain “C”, Objective-C, Python, PHP, and Perl. (In short, you’ll get at least a PC and a Mac and VMware)
  • We use Subversion, Jenkins, Jira, Confluence, and Crucible every day as tools to keep software churning out.

What are we looking for in our developers?

  • Adaptability – We are a small team and everyone wears a lot of hats.
  • Fearlessness – You will be called upon to become our expert on something outside of your comfort zone, such as leading-edge technology or someone else’s code – neither of which would faze you.
  • Creative problem solvers – We are the leader in our segment, and the answers aren’t always just a Google search away.
  • Passion for programming in C++.
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in Engineering or related field.

We are conveniently located in Framingham at Mass Pike Exit 13. We offer great benefits
along with a fun and flexible atmosphere.
