A German Software company in the field of MS Powerpoint Add-Ins is looking for a Reverse engineer (f/m/d) in Berlin.


This company distinguishes itself from other Microsoft Office add-ins by having an intuitive user interface, smart algorithms that automate many tasks and, not least, a deep integration into its Office host application. To achieve this deep integration, they use the public APIs offered by Office and Windows whenever we can, but unfortunately, not everything is doable with this. Individual customization hooks need to be added into the Office and Windows binaries. When the software loads, it finds the code locations and installs its hooks. Instead of using fixed addresses, they find code locations using machine code patterns to be robust against minor changes. If an update to Office or Windows still breaks some of the patterns, the software will automatically download and install any available version with updated patterns. Finding ways to achieve a desired customization is a truly zen-like activity. It requires deep analytical skills, the ability to juggle vast amounts of information in the head and quickly separate promising from less promising approaches.
