Internet Systems Consortium, Inc. (ISC) is a public benefit company
whose mission is to support the infrastructure of the Internet.  In
pursuit of this goal, we have a team dedicated to developing open-source

Internet's most popular DNS server, and we also provide ISC DHCP, an
implementation of the dynamic host configuration protocol.

We are looking to extend our BIND 9 development team and require an
experienced software engineer with a strong background in networking.
This engineer will be a core part of the team, working on both
maintenance and new features. While the initial need is for BIND 9, ISC
software engineers can move between projects over time.

Among the responsibilities of this position are:
- Working with the team to design and develop new features
- Tracking down and fixing bugs
- Reviewing code changes
- Assisting release engineering
- Assisting project planning
- Analyzing and responding to bug reports from a variety of sources
- Participating in organisations such as the IETF to develop Internet

Unix/BSD/Linux operating systems
- Very strong knowledge of networking, both from a theoretical as well
as a practical standpoint
- Experience with the Berkeley socket API

- Knowledge of the DNS protocol

Desirable Skills
- Familiarity with UML

Bachelor's Degree in a scientific or technical subject.

Anywhere.  Although ISC is located in Redwood City, California (USA) and
a number of staff are based there, many of ISC's staff work from their
homes throughout the USA and the rest of the world.

This position is open to anyone regardless of nationality, and is
suitable for home working. Note that occasional travel to the company's
USA offices will be required.
