What's the current status:
We had a developer build a software for a private residential IP network. The aim of this software is to enable us to channel traffic through the devices/IPs of people who installed our software.
It consists of three parts:
-- a speedtest that enables a consumer to test their connection speed. This part is fully working and no changes are required.
-- in the same code is a reverse proxy, that allows us to access the network connection of the user. This, in effect, turns the users computer into a proxy server for us (in a legal and compliant way)
-- a frontend and interface for us where we can see the clients connected and send traffic. This is fully working too.
What we need:
-- Test the software on different machines, especially Windows computers, hunt for bugs and ensure overall stability to prepare production use
-- The goal is not to have 100% availability, but ensure it is like "mostly working" - and, most important we want to avoid worst-cases, such as the software getting uninstalled on all computers due to an error
-- Minor code cleanup / refactoring, where necessary
Known bugs in the code:
-- There is something weird happening in the event of a windows update which causes the software to corrupt and stop working
-- There may be additional bugs hiding
-- Familiar with Windows OS and access to at least one physical Windows system (not just a VM)
-- Basic understanding of how (residential) proxies work or willingness to learn
-- Tester-mentality and able to work with existing code
-- Able to think about worst-case scenarios and plan code design accordingly
-- Good communication skills
What we offer:
-- Competitive salary
-- Good working environment in a very technical small-to-midsized company with offices in Malta and Munich
-- A long term cooperation is desired from our side and we already have follow-up projects
-- Fast communication, friendly colleagues, occasional team meetings in real life if you want to
-- Assistance with the testing, for example we can spread the software to a small number of "real users" to facilitate real-life testing
