  • Hi

    Is a remote (Europe) employment available?

  • I've got good news and bad news. First, the bad news...Kitware doesn't hire remote employees. Now for the good news...we do have an office in Lyon, France. So, if you are interested in moving to Lyon instead of North Carolina, you should send your resume and cover letter to He leads the office in Lyon.

    However, you really should check out the links provided about Carrboro, North Carolina. I always thought I would end up in a big city; but after coming to UNC for my Ph.D., I've decided to make this place my home: great people, food, entertainment, college life, weather, outdoor activities, bars, music, beer, wine, and coffee (I'm an addict). Also, if you need to get away, Raleigh is 30 minutes away, the beach is 3 hours to the east, and the mountains are 3 hours to the west. Our offices are in the heart of the town - surrounded by students, families, parks, restaurants, bars, and much diversity.

    All of this and more can be yours...if you're an outstanding C++ and Qt programmer. :)

  • Thanks for the prompt reply Stephen.

    I have a family, so relocation is a tough decision for me. Although, Carrboro, NC sounds great, indeed (I'm not a fan of big cities either). :)

    All the best!
