Principal GUI Developer

Push the boundaries of tech. In your sweatpants.

We’re looking for an experienced Principal GUI Developer to help us change the way the world works, with anytime, anywhere, any-device productivity. Here, you’ll take responsibility for software-related issues and work to find effective solutions with our Parallels team.

The top creative and technical minds could work anywhere. So why are so many of them choosing Alludo? Here are three reasons:

  1. This is the moment. It’s an exciting time at Alludo, with strong leadership, a refreshed brand (you probably know us as Corel!), and a whole new approach to changing the way the world works. We’re at the forefront of a movement, and we want you to ride this wave with us.
  2. We want you to be you. Too often, companies tell you about their culture and then expect you to fit it. Our culture is built from the people who work here. We want you to feel safe to be who you are, take risks, and show us what you’ve got.
  3. It’s your world. We know you have a life. We want to be part of it, but not all of it. At Alludo, we’re serious about empowering people to work when, how, and where they want. Couch? Sweatpants? Cool with us. We believe that happy employees mean happy customers. That’s why we hire amazing people and get out of their way.

Sound good so far? Awesome. Let’s talk more about the Principal GUI Developer role and see if we’re destined to be together.

  • Take responsibility for software-related issues and work to find effective solutions.
