We are looking for experienced, motivated, self-starting engineers that have experience in building distributed web applications and infrastructure, or DevOps tooling. Blockchain experience is a bonus but not strictly necessary.

If you would like to work on building infrastructure for one of the most exciting new spaces in tech, this is the role for you.

As an engineer on our team, you will be working on building a platform that will enable and support more streamlined experiences for key users of blockchains while gaining an in-depth understanding of next-generation consensus algorithms and new networks. You would be building infrastructure that enables our customers to easily deploy, run, manage and use blockchain infrastructure that is secure, reliable, and cloud provider agnostic. Our team builds open source software for developers and develops best-in-class block production infrastructure to help support these blockchains grow, increase transparency and achieve adoption.

With a focus on delivering the best technology platform in the blockchain space, we are not committed to any specific programming language. Our current stack uses Go, Javascript, React, Kubernetes, Terraform and Docker.

- Build services and infrastructure that help to automate the deployment of blockchain network infrastructure.
- Build services and infrastructure that monitor the health, uptime, and reliability of blockchain infrastructure.

- Incorporate monitoring, alerting and observability to systems that allow us to debug, diagnose and fix problems.
- Write integration tests and contribute to maintaining a healthy CI/CD pipeline.
