Job Description

Parsec’s goal is to help businesses embrace flexible work environments and keep their employees productive through ultra low latency, high performance, remote desktop technology. But Parsec isn’t your typical remote desktop tool. It was built for gaming, which makes it great for everything. Parsec for Teams leverages our technology to help some of the biggest names in gaming, entertainment, engineering, architecture, and more transition to a flexible work environment where people can decide when and where they work. Parsec has allowed customers like Electronic Arts, Blizzard, Ubisoft, and Square Enix to stay on schedule as they make some of the world’s favorite content.
With a recent Series B led by Andreesen Horrowitz, Parsec is growing so that we can power flexible work across industries. The average Parsec for Teams user is already saving more than an hour each day using our software. That time gets put back into work, family, health, and more. We think this kind of freedom makes people happier, healthier, and more productive.
Engineering culture:
We value diversity and talent over experience. We believe a small team that collaborates well can accomplish more than a large team bogged down with process. At Parsec it’s everyone’s job to understand the customers’ problems and come up with creative solutions. As an engineer you don’t just write code, you design and build a product.
The Opportunity:
We are building an immediate mode UI framework in C and Javascript that will become the foundation of the Parsec app. This is an opportunity to join as the first developer on a new team that will both own the UI framework and use it evolve our app. We like to roll our own implementations and we often take non-conventional approaches. The ideal candidate either has experience developing a UI framework or building game UI and HUD.

What you’ll do:

  • Co-develop and maintain our proprietary UI framework written in C and Javascript
  • Within the first 3 months, migrate our app to the new UI framework
  • Within the first 6 months, move the majority of the app’s business logic to the Javascript layer
  • Collaborate with the marketing team to implement product marketing features
  • Collaborate with SDK team to integrate and support new SDK functionality
  • Collaborate with the design team to make frequent small releases, improving the app UX


  • We’re looking for a diverse set of experiences, and no one will be ruled out for this role. That being said, we’re hoping you’ll have some combination of these:
  • Fluency in C/C++ and Javascript required
  • 3+ years working in a professional development team
  • Attention to detail and a passion for great user experiences
  • Experience developing a UI framework appreciated
  • Experience working on game UI or HUD appreciated
  • US citizenship or green card

Tech Stack


  • C

  • JavaScript

Your Impact on Tech

We believe in simple and robust solutions. Our app is written in C and compiles into a 3.5mb executable. Our backend is written in Go and runs serverless on AWS. We avoid bloat and dependencies, preferring to roll our own implementations tailored for our unique needs and with a focus on performance.
