Are you an engineer with experience working with BitTorrent? Have you ever written a program with P2P file-sharing capabilities? We need you!
VoxPop Games is looking for Software Engineering Contractors with experience working with P2P networks to help fix the P2P functionality of our Software distribution platform.
We already have a working platform and codebase. Originally, it was designed with a working P2P spec, with a chunking algorithm that allowed the program to download from multiple seeds at the same time. Under this original spec, the master was considered a seed as well, but currently it is non-operational.
Your task would be to work with our Engineer to either repair this functionality, or to rebuild it from scratch according to it’s original specifications.
1.) First checks for nearby seeds, and attempts a connection.
2.) If there are no seeds available, it connects to a master, which is always on
3.) Once a connection has been established, the program verifies the file is correct, and proceeds to download.
This product is somewhat flexible, and we would like to hear from you which tools or libraries you need to complete this task. This is a short-term contract. Expected development time 2-4 weeks. Payment is negotiable, let us know your hourly rate.
We look forward to hearing from you!
