Here's the deal: we typically only need help with one thing: Wine Development. Other code development, system administration, testing, sales, tech support, accounting, temp work, dishwashing, and so on we have only occasional need for, and we hire locally when we do.

[Valve Steam Play/Proton]
[Who we are]
CodeWeavers is a small company based in St Paul, Minnesota that enables customers to run Windows programs on macOS, Linux and Android using the open source Wine technology. We are looking for a handful of talented programmers that are willing to learn how to improve Wine. We have developers all around the globe and are happy to hire remote workers.
[About the position]
CodeWeavers recently partnered with Valve Software to integrate Wine into the Steam for Linux client as a part of the Steam Play (Proton) initiative. This allows Linux gamers to play Windows games on Linux more easily. We need new, full-time developers to improve Wine's ability to run games.
[Why it's interesting]
CodeWeavers prides itself on four tenets. Do challenging and meaningful work, work with people we respect, have fun at work and of course make money. CodeWeavers is filled with capable developers who believe in the technical and moral strengths of open source software. We thrive by working in an environment with competent co workers, little management hassle, and a sensible approach to work-life balance. We need developers with strong C skills who will enjoy the exciting and varied challenges Wine brings. Most Wine developers work on all areas of Wine, including file I/O, device input, audio/video, graphics, Windows shell and GUI programming, and much more. This requires self-motivation and an ability to learn quickly and work within existing code.
