Lead Software Engineer


About the job

Blockchain smart contracts are inherently restricted to communicating exclusively with other smart contracts - preventing developers from building applications beyond moving and exchanging crypto assets. True consumer and enterprise applications need to interact with a variety of services, most of which live off of the blockchain.

We have recently partnered with one of San Francisco's most exciting Blockchain SaaS companies who are solving this problem. They are a SaaS start-up who allow developers to connect blockchain smart contracts to traditional web endpoints. The team is rapidly growing with some of San Francisco's top engineers and we are looking for a lead engineer to join their team! The company is a Blockchain infrastructure company at its core, meaning that this is a fantastic opportunity to work at the cutting edge of blockchain technology while avoiding the volatilities of the direct crypto industry.

This is a unique opportunity to worth with and thrive among the top Blockchain and engineering talent in San Francisco with a team of great backgrounds. The CEO comes from a highly successful previous tech start-up now worth $240mil which he has now left and is now embarking on this adventure. They have already secured $3.5mil in venture funding and have a substantial series A on the way.

The role:

  • Design and development of our backend infrastructure that handles customer requests for data, delegates/routes API calls, securely stores customer-sensitive data, and queues requests to be submitted back to the blockchain
  • Working alongside our founding software engineers and own major features from design to deployment. You will start off as an individual contributor and transition to a tech lead or engineering management role as we grow our team

  • 8+ years of industry software engineering experience

  • Expert-level knowledge of one or more of the following: Databases, ELD Pipelines, Serverless Architecture, Security, Web Hosting, Networking, Reliability Engineering, Data Engineering
  • Experience working on customer-facing products with high requirements for uptime and stability
  • Experience in a role with significant oversight over the design of a core technical component.
  • Degree in Computer Science, Math, or a related technical field
  • (Optional) Experience with Ethereum smart contract development
  • (Optional) High-level understanding of core blockchain principles (ex. EVM client, oracles, consensus mechanisms, layer 2 solutions)
  • (Optional) Experience as a decentralized node operator (ex. Bitcoin/Ethereum miner/validator)

  • Early-stage equity which will be very valuable in the near future
  • State of the on-site working with the some of the best engineers on the market
