--About the Role--
We are seeking an experienced Fullstack Software Engineer to help expand the Figment Networks Hubble product.
Hubble makes sense of the explosion of data from new proof of stake blockchains, and we're looking for someone who can grok new blockchain data structures and create web and mobile apps to analyze them.
This is a full-time remote position, with team members in Toronto, Waterloo, Chicago, and New York City.
What’s unique about this role is that you get to work with many different brand new blockchains and core teams as they iterate through testnet to mainnet and help create widely used products for the community of validators, token holders, and other developers along the way.
If you enjoy figuring out how new blockchains work, and then designing and launching new data analysis tools, this role may be a good fit.
This person will report to the CTO (co-founder) and work with a group of generalists since we’re currently a small team. Critical that interested candidates are comfortable working in an unstructured environment, dealing with uncertainty, minimal direction, and working across a range of projects.
-Create high performance indexing software to ingest data from blockchains
-Structure database schemas and basic indexing/tuning
-Design and implement backend APIs to power web and mobile apps
-Use web frameworks (Ruby on Rails or similar) to present data to end users. (design/UI is out of scope and current JS use is minimal)
-Bonus: automate deployments and create monitoring systems
-Have started a complex/high usage web application from scratch and deployed through production in a professional setting
-Significant experience with scripting languages and web frameworks
-Ability to reason about tradeoffs between different frameworks and software tools
-Familiar with PostgreSQL or similar relational databases
-Bonus: AWS or other cloud infrastructure experience
--Benefits & Impact--
-Seed stage startup where you’ll make a true impact on the product, customers, team and the larger blockchain/crypto space
-A culture of honesty and risk taking in a “non corporate environment”
-Work remote, flexible hours
-One of first 20 employees; opportunity to grow as we grow.
-Seed stage equity + competitive salary
