Subject: [jobs] Citrix Systems (Cambridge, UK)
Dear fellow OCaml users,

Summary: We (Citrix Systems) are looking for OCaml programmers to join our team
in Cambridge, UK.

We use OCaml extensively in the "xapi tool-stack": the control-plane used in the
Xen Cloud Platform[1] on which the widely used XenServer server virtualisation
product[2] is based. XCP aims to provide a complete open-source cloud
infrastructure platform with a powerful management stack based on standards-based
APIs, support for multi-tenancy, SLA guarantees and detailed metrics for
consumption based charging.

We are looking to recruit top-class engineers to work on the tool-stack; applicants
must have a good knowledge of data structures and algorithms, experience of
programming in the context of large systems and general aesthetic good taste when
it comes to code and architecture. Our code base is significant and varied: over
130,000 lines of OCaml, solving problems ranging from the low-level (Xen hypercalls)
to the high-level (resource pool management), to the compiler-driven (generating
language bindings for our Xen datamodel).

Our ideal candidate will have:

* significant experience of applications programming in high-level languages (such
  as OCaml :-)
* an aptitude for implementing (and reasoning about) complex concurrent,
  distributed systems
* the skills required to contribute to both the architectural design and
  day-to-day development of a large code-base
* strong communication skills and problem solving ability
* a determination to deliver great products that perform brilliantly and meet
  our customers' needs

So if you want to tackle interesting and challenging programming problems and
contribute to an innovative, fast-growing product that is already used by tens
of thousands of customers across the world, please don't hesitate to send me
your CV.
