At Horizon, we’re on a mission to make the next generation of Internet economies fun, accessible, and for the benefit of all participants. We’re making SkyWeaver, a digital trading card game—powered by blockchain—where players actually own the game items they win and purchase. For the first time, gamers can easily and securely sell and trade their items. We’re also building a new platform, which consists of a blockchain development stack and smart wallet, so that other games and products can integrate blockchain with only four lines of code. Our platform makes it easy for developers and companies to access and build the next generation of Internet economies and experiences. Learn more at https://horizon.io
Who We're Looking For
We're looking for a senior Web developer with experience writing and shipping production-quality React applications. You have a refined eye for rigorous, clean code, but are able to balance tradeoffs inherent in all design decisions.
You take pride in being an engineer and not just a hacker. You take the time to design things properly, being mindful of those after you, and understand that much of what happens in code happens after it's been written. This matters to you.
As a senior developer, you have a deep understanding of designing robust, well-designed code. You can drive and self-direct major areas of the code. While not a strict requirement, you are comfortable working with and guiding more intermediate and junior engineers when needed.
Given our size, self-driven engineers will thrive best in this role. While small, you'll be working alongside some of the best engineers, and open-source contributors--and a company dedicated to your success. You will learn a lot.
- Lead and drive the design and implementation of our front end application in React (Typescript)
- Ensure SkyWeaver is mobile-enabled
- Ensure sound architectural design for the webapp codebase so that future engineers can continue your work with ease and speed
- Work closely with our backend and design teams, participating closely in the design process and aligning on requirements to ship product
- Experience shipping multiple production-level applications in React
- Competent familiarity in Typescript a bonus
- Prior blockchain knowledge is not required, but a bonus
