We own the new tabbed, acrylic, fully customizable Terminal and the Windows console infrastructure, as well as several other projects and initiatives that seek to empower developers. And all the work we're doing is out in the open, using GitHub to directly interface with customers and contributors. See

The more diverse (in all aspects) our team, the more inclusive our end result. To that end, it is imperative that the candidate pool for any position we open be as robust and diverse as possible. We encourage applicants from any background and with any perspective.

Required qualifications:

* 2+ years of professional software development experience.

Preferred qualifications:

* Proficiency in C++.
