Job Description

Mid-level Software Engineer - C++ - 00004825


The company:

Verisign maintains the Domain Name System (DNS) root and powers the hugely-significant .COM domain enabling the world’s 3.5 billion Internet users to reach their online destinations. Our global servers process more than one million transactions every second of every day. Because these services underpin the online connectivity of the Internet, our products must remain available during extreme spike load events. We also provide a range of security-related services, including Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection Services and our malware blocking DNS Firewall.

The opportunity:

Verisign is seeking software engineers with a demonstrated passion for software development for high-volume services that demand high performance. We are an agile shop, where small teams work collaboratively to rapidly deliver solutions that matter, allowing you to work directly with and learn from our industry experts. If you are passionate about the craft of software development, love technology, and are curious to learn more, this position might be for you. We're looking for a software engineer with C++ coding experience that can:

  • Work as part of a team to design, develop and maintain systems that comprise critical internet infrastructure
  • Ensure quality standards are met (and improved!) through code reviews, test automation and deployment automation
  • Work with stakeholders to understand requirements, and document requirements through properly-sized Jira epics and user stories with clearly defined requirements and acceptance criteria
  • Understand the critical nature of these systems and devise solutions to ensure that Service Level Agreements are met and exceeded

What’s great about working here:

  • Work on the high-scale systems that provide key Internet services
  • Strong Verisign Technical Community with constant opportunities to learn via Tech Talks and other internal events
  • Training and education opportunities such as Verisign University and tuition reimbursement for work-related degrees
  • Subsidized onsite cafeteria, Starbucks, smoothie, and juice bar
  • Employee Stock Purchase Plan
  • Fully equipped onsite gym offering free classes; game room, basketball, volleyball and tennis courts
  • Casual dress policy
  • Volunteering opportunities to give back to our community via the Verisign Cares program


  • Must have 5-8 years of software development experience using C++
  • Have experience with a scripting language, such as python or ruby
  • Be curious about software development and the internet ecosystem
  • Be passionate about craftsmanship and quality
  • Be able to work as part of a team, solving problems and delivering solutions
  • Be able to work through problems/assignments independently
  • Be unwilling to stand on the sidelines when there is work to be done
