We are looking for a Software Developer to join the HP Wolf Security R&D team in Cambridge, UK. We work on an endpoint software security product which is based on micro-virtualization. To see what our engineers are working on, check out our technical blogs: https://threatresearch.ext.hp.com/blog.
The role will be primarily C++ development and you’ll be working to optimise browsing experience for end users. You will be developing browser extensions, new features and plug ins as well as fixing bugs and helping to improve our existing code. You will be working on a security solution product which is virtualization based and tightly integrated with the OS. You will need to ensure any changes to the product are seamless whilst protecting the end user at the same time.
This is a fantastic full-time opportunity for a collaborative, hands on Software Developer to join a small but growing team. We’re open minded with regards to experience level and the role would especially suit a developer looking to take the next step up in their career development.
We offer competitive salaries, a comprehensive benefit package and career development opportunities. You'll work flexible hours – either from our brand-new Cambridge office or on a home/office hybrid basis if preferred. We’d also welcome applications from candidates wishing to work on a fully remote basis in the UK and who can visit Cambridge as/when required.

Inspired by the isolation principles of traditional virtualization, our team has created a game-changing technology called micro-virtualization to protect end users against advanced malware. Every task the user performs, such as opening a document or clicking on a link, is isolated in its own micro-VM, with access to just the resources required for that task, and existing just for the life of the task. Protection is thus provided through isolation, without relying on detection, hence reliably defending the user from polymorphic and even zero-day malware.
