we are looking for a versatile and experienced software developer to lead the developer experience and tools team for a High-Security Blockchain Platform.

Responsible for:

  • Maintaining public-facing tools, APIs, and source code; this includes implementing enhancements, keeping our tools up to date and buildable, monitoring and addressing security issues and issues from the community.
  • Working to open-source as much of internal tooling and infrastructure as possible.
  • Building tooling to allow the client and our community members to work as efficiently as possible - this includes adopting, improving and building new tools for deploying our projects as quickly and easily as possible, for testing, observation and maintenance, and debugging and troubleshooting.

    • Typescript, yarn, node.js, npm, javascript
    • Rust, C++, golang
    • HTML, CSS, SASS, React, Vue and Svelte

    • AWS, kubernetes and various databases (including Postgres and MongoDB)
    • CICD systems - specifically, travis.
    • Some python would be an advantage.
  • You will need to be adaptable and find it easy to work with unfamiliar technologies and codebases relatively quickly.
  • A good sense of how to write code so that others can easily pick up and use it, and for what level of sophistication yields the best tradeoff between developer efficiency and coding efficiency.
  • An ability to understand complex distributed systems and build tools that work effectively across them.
  • You will need a degree in Computer Science (or a related subject) and at least 3 years of experience.
