Senior C++ Developer

Acunetix is a dynamic software company founded to develop a cutting-edge tool designed with security professionals in mind, to help them secure their websites and web applications from design flaws and hackers.

  • Experience developing in the Standard Template Library, Asynchronous event driven programming and Network sockets
  • Experience developing cross-platform applications (Windows / Linux)
  • Familiarity with code versioning tools such as Git
  • Experience in QT, WebSockets, and JavaScript are considered an asset
  • A clear understanding of memory management in an un-managed application
