ABOUT COMPUTABLE

Our mission is to create fair access to data. Data has become the most precious resource of our time, and we believe positively transforming how it is shared will unlock not only unprecedented enterprise value, but also scientific progress and social equity. We're pioneering decentralized technology and products to democratize access to trustworthy data, create a fair economic system around data ownership, and spark a new understanding of the world around us.

We are deeply passionate about this mission. Join us if you are too!


RESPONSIBILITIES

* As an Engineering lead, work with other leaders on the design of systems to support the Computable protocol.
* Develop and deploy those solutions. From dockerized containers running on AWS to maybe a hand-made box running a full Ethereum node under your desk.
* Secure, scale and monitor. Secure. Scale. Monitor...


SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE

Ideal candidate has a passion for learning, curiosity about blockchain and ethereum, and a drive to get shit done.

* You've got a strong DevOps background with years deploying, scaling and monitoring multiple environments across various platforms.
* You sometimes lie awake at night knowing what you know about security.
* You enjoy API development, knowing full well that a senior engineer at a small startup is going to wear many hats.
* You know that less is more. Like, way less is way more…
* You already know about, or are interested and excited to learn about blockchain tech. Ethereum? Is that like Bitcoin?
* Geth or Parity? Main Net? Rinkeby? POW, POS, or POA? Should we run our own full node (hint: we are) or trust a third party (hint: we won't)?
* You enjoy being challenged to solve novel, very novel, sometimes frighteningly novel problems. If you were looking for maintenance mode engineering with years of solutions and best practice tips available to you via a single Stack Overflow search, you'd have stopped reading this by now.

Salary, equity, tokens, benefits, learning, and a lot of fun!
