Chess Explanation Engineer
Chess.com is the #1 place on the internet to play chess and improve your game. Chess software tells us what the best move is, but can it tell us why it's the best move? Can it distinguish tactics from strategy? Can it tell us why Black is better in a position, or why a move is a mistake? We’re looking for skilled C++ developers to explore these questions and many more!
You’re a creative software engineer with an interest in architecture. You’ve built software for fun. You’re a regular chessplayer. When there’s a problem, you can think of more than one way to solve it. You care about your code’s correctness, clarity and structure. You’ve shipped bugs to production, found them and fixed them.
