The job in a nutshell

We are the PowerDNS team, and we are looking for an experienced developer with a particular affinity for Golang. Next to the C++-based Open-Source DNS solutions we build and maintain, we also have a suite of complimentary Golang-based closed-source solutions and modules, such as a control plane for distributed Authoritative DNS, a DNS-filtering solution, and a DNS-orchestration solution. As a Software Developer for PowerDNS you will use your knowledge and experience with Golang and DNS to contribute to these solutions and modules. The PowerDNS main office is in The Hague, but you are free to work from home in The Netherlands or one of the other European countries where Open-Xchange has entities.

This can either be on a full time basis or part time.
