  * Intimate knowledge of IRC protocol (RFC 1459 et al., CTCP, \001ACTION, etc.)
  * Experience writing IRC bots and services (at the IRC protocol level)
  * Experience deploying and running ircd-hybrid, Ratbox, or other IRC server
    implementation is a plus
Web & Email Software Engineer

  * Expert-level knowledge of node.js, Ruby, and shell scripts
  * Intimate knowledge of email protocols (SMTP, IMAP, etc.) and relevant RFCs
  * Experience writing MTAs, MUAs, or email filtering tools
  * Familiarity with secure coding practices, including running untrusted code
    (JavaScript) in a sandbox
  * Experience with Docker, RunC, LXC, Linux namespaces, or other
    containerization technologies is a huge plus
Network Software Engineer

  * Deep expertise with C/C++ and cross-platform (iOS, Android, Mac, Windows,
    Linux) networking APIs
  * Experience implementing custom protocols over TCP or UDP
  * Low-level networking stack and VPN (e.g., OpenVPN, SSL-VPN, etc.)
    experience is a huge plus
  * Knowledge of power/performance considerations in networking protocols
We're a remote team (unless you happen to be based in the LA area, in which case you'd want to come work from our beautiful office in West Hollywood hills), and all of our collaboration happens over Slack and Trello, with the occasional email.

Email jobs@privateinternetaccess.com with your resume and/or links to projects you've worked on, a link to your GitHub (or some other site where we can see your code), and what makes you interested in our company. Don't forget to mention you're from HN!
