IP network software engineer @ Tessares in Louvain-le-Neuve, Belgium



What you’ll do

As an IP Network Software Engineer, you will contribute to our Multipath TCP agent software that runs in home gateways. You will write code that runs in gazillions of Internet access boxes. You will contribute to drastically improving the end user experience through efficient bonding of access technologies (combined DSL, 3G, LTE, etc.).

In that mission, Tessares will help you with the following assets :

The team: As part of the embedded development team, you will participate in a continuous feedback loop (e.g. through peer reviewing).
The experience: You will work in close interaction with major contributors to the Multipath TCP protocol and implementation.
The boxes: Have you ever dreamed that you had full access to your home gateway, with possibility to recompile its kernel or augment its features ? At Tessares, we get the real boxes, open them and turn them into real racing cars !
Yourself: As a recent start-up, we will be eager to receive input from you and strive to reach ever more ambitious objectives. Together.

Useful knowledge you have

We all need to be fluent in English, both written and spoken. For embedded software development, we currently use the C programming language and closely interact with the Linux kernel. For this reason it will be great if you have kernel programming experience, or have no fear to dive into the kernel and hunt bugs. Moreover, as we modify the networking function of the gateway, it would be good that you master TCP/IP protocols. You will also interact with other engineers from gateway and chipset vendors in order to integrate our solution into their boxes.

Do you feel Tessares compatible ?

In a start up, it is important that the team has cohesion, with each collaborator nicely complementing others, while still sharing Company values. We also decided to adopt an agile framework (with continuous integration, automated testing, peer reviews). You will have frequent interactions with other specialists, and will enjoy varied activities. Our customers will be in Europe and outside of Europe, you will have the opportunity to meet them to better understand their needs. You won’t be strictly confined into your role, and will have the opportunity to move within the company as it grows and your interests evolve.


In addition to providing a motivating working environment, we offer an attractive salary package in accordance with your seniority level. After some time with us, you may even receive stock options, so that you can get your share of Tessares success !
