  • wundergraph

  • WunderGraph | | Full-time | Senior Golang Engineer | Remote

    WunderGraph is the BFF (Backend for Frontend) Framework. Our solution helps developers to manage the API Dependencies of their applications and create BFFs in no time. Our long term vision is to build GitHub for APIs, a collaboration platform for API creators and consumers.

    At the core of our product is the "Engine", a Gateway/Compiler/AST Transformation Engine that translates between GraphQL, REST, Databases, SOAP, gRPC, AsyncAPI and more. Client Request -> AST -> Transformation -> Origin Request(s) -> Response Transformation.

    This Engine allows our users to get one unified interface across all their API Dependencies, so you can easily use GraphQL or TypeScript (using our API ORM) as the "Frontend".

    We're looking to expand our Engine Team to further improve the capabilities, add more possible data sources, like gRPC, Kafka, etc... Therefore, this job is not about creating web services and such, but rather deep dive into the world of ASTs, Transpilers, different API Protocols and such.

  • bonsai

    A voxel engine in a pot (by scallyw4g)

  • | Bonsai | Realtime 3D Voxel Engine | Seeking Volunteers/Contributors | Remote, Global

    Last month I posted a 'real' hiring ad (with an actual salary). I got such an overwhelming response from Intern level candidates that I though I'd put the word out; I'm looking for contributors for an OSS project I work on. If this is an inappropriate venue for this ad, I'm happy to take this down.

    Bonsai is a long-running passion project of mine that's recently reached a level of stability with which I'm comfortable including an additional contributor or two. The project is largely inspired by Handmade Hero, and the rules are the same. With very few exceptions, every line of code included in the project has been written by me. This includes everything from the standard library to the font rasterizer, the collision detection, and even a C metaprogramming language.

    As you can imagine, there's a great number of things that could be worked on, and I'm very open to suggestions. That said, a few tasks relatively high on the to-do list are as follows:

    * Make some games!

    * Implement transparency in the renderer based on this paper :

    * Implement an MP3 decoder

    * Using the metaprogramming language I wrote, implement a GUI tool to introspect the engine data at runtime.

    A few more .. ;)

    I'm looking for anyone who is passionate about (or passionately learning about) low-level programming, graphics and/or compilers. If you're just starting out with these topics, I'm happy to be a mentor and help you stumble blindly down the path of becoming an excellent engineer. Working on Bonsai has been an absolutely amazing experience for me; it's literally changed my entire life, and I'd love to share it with other folks. If you're looking for a cool new project to work on, and don't need income from it, let's connect.
