Nexedi is looking for a C/golang developer interested in implementing a containerless process isolation system for SlapOS open source cloud computing platform.
The underlying ideas are explained in the article "Recent trends in process isolation technologies".
The underlying goal is to provide process isolation in SlapOS without containers. One possible application is "platform-as-a-service" isolation without VM or containers.
One implementation approach could consist - for example - of adapting gvisor to launch a Linux process within a user-mode kernel which isolates it from other processes.
Other approaches can ne considered.
Nexedi has been developing free software since launching in 2001. We are maintaining software solutions (see our full stack) with over 10 million lines of code including:
Besides participating in various research initiatives, Nexedi provides customisation services for solutions with implementations being used by corporations such as Airbus, Sanef, Mitsubishi all around the world. We follow the principles of reflexive programming, enforce strict unit testing and emphasise using the latest web technologies.
Our economic model requires each developer to fulfill R&D objectives aiming at delivering short to medium sized solutions to customer requirements and progressing the evolution of our software stack. This way we try to be innovative and fund long term free software without the need for venture capital.
We would be happy to hear from you, so drop us a line (along with your CV) at jobs(at)nexedi.com and we will get in touch with you.
