We’ve created an advanced real time display protocol to make sure your experience feels like a physical computer that you can access anywhere, anytime.

Vagon’s performance elasticity makes sure your workstation is always equipped to handle whatever job you have to perform at any time. You don’t have to break the bank, building a workstation that can handle everything.

We’re looking for someone with:

  • Extensive knowledge and experience in developing modern web Front-end applications, namely single page applications.

  • A strong understanding of engineering principles and fundamentals.

  • Demonstrable experience in modern Javascript and related web technologies (bonus points for React).

  • The ability to write clean, readable, testable and performant Javascript code.

  • Familiarity in modern DevOps and delivery processes.

  • A highly curious mind who’s not afraid to dive deep into technically novel challenges.

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.

If you join Vagon, you’ll play an important role in shaping our:

  • Company culture.

  • Research and engineering practices.

  • Product roadmap.

Engineers on the team today:

  • Work with C++/C#, Javascript for streaming, Ruby on Rails for the back-end, React for front-end.

  • Try to see the users’ point of view to create the best possible experience.

  • Are excellent communicators (written and verbal).

  • Enjoy being generalists and excel in diving deep into uncharted territories in terms of tech challenges.

  • Support each other in any way possible.

  • Uphold best practices in engineering, security, and design.

Here are examples of things we’ve worked on:

  • Creating a secure, high performance, low latency display protocol (Vagon Protocol) tuned for the needs of creative professionals all around the world.

  • Creating a super cloud infrastructure that is able to handle computer lifecycles for multiple public cloud providers. (mainly AWS)

  • Diving deep into and tuning h264 parameter configurations to make sure it’s optimized for true color and sharpness which creative professionals need, without creating bottlenecks in bandwidth and performance.

  • Created an MVP for our own Dropbox like service for file management called Vagon Files. We’re now about to dive in to low level file system APIs to make this experience more seamless with Vagon computers with tech like FUSE or Dokan.

  • We’ve reimagined how a modern cloud computer should look like, from the bottom up by creating a whole new experience. You can read more about our new UX design process here.

How does Vagon work?

Vagon is a batteries-included solution; it bridges the gap between human beings and the Cloud. So we have prioritized security and ease of use from day one.
