Linux Build Engineer

As a Build Engineer on our team, you will be helping us build our products across multiple platforms. You'll be responsible for building open source software from source on a range of platforms and will need familiarity with build tools like autoconf and make as well as compilers like GCC and G++

Our day to day work practices are centered around GitHub, pull requests, code review, CI for testing, and agile development with Pivotal Tracker as our project management tool. We’re always looking to improve our practices and we expect you to help us to do so.

ActiveState has a collaborative, respectful, and professional culture. We’re all about working together to find the best solutions, and making sure that the experience of doing so is positive for everyone involved. There is a commitment from the CEO on down to making work at ActiveState a great experience for all of us.

Our company is a team of 35+ and growing, with 2/3rds of the positions in technical roles including software development and QA. We maintain a set of core, overlapping hours, but we’re flexible with specific start and end times and are understanding about appointments and life events.

Our vision is to have an ActiveState solution on every device on every planet, so we certainly don’t lack for ambition! But even though we’re ambitious we don’t expect work to become your life. We know you will do your best work in a positive environment free from death marches.

Our team is scattered around the US and Canada, so we coordinate with each other and the rest of the company using Slack for chat, Highfive for video calls and screen sharing, Pivotal Tracker, and Google Drive.

We like to use open source software whenever possible, and we also like to contribute back to the open source ecosystem. We embrace open sourcing both libraries and tools developed in-house as long as those are not mission-critical code.


Excellent written and spoken skills, both technical and non-technical. You’ll need to work closely with your developer teammates, as well as be able to have coherent conversations with people from QA, sales, marketing, and other parts of the company.

A willingness to engage in the process of defining our work through conversations with product management, other engineering teams, and the rest of the company.


If you have experience with any of the following please make sure to highlight it in your cover letter:

Experience working on a build system.

Agile processes, including breaking large projects up into smaller stories, estimation, working in branches (GitHub Flow), code review, and CI.

C or C++ code and debugging compiler issues across platforms.

Experience writing Perl code.

Perl, Python, Tcl, or Ruby, especially an understanding of their respective language communities and their toolchains.

Big iron operating systems including Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX.

Build tools such as make, autotools, bazel, etc.

Please note that the contractors must be able to work on PST time zones and must also be located in North America or Europe.

Shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete a technical assessment which will take approximately 4-5 hours.
