Here’s what your day to day looks like:

  • Architect and develop distributed systems that scale protocol integrations to millions of users
  • Design and implement foundational protocol integrations on the Ethereum or EVM-compatible networks
  • Actively participate in the web3 / NFT community

  • Proficiency in modern programming languages such as Go, Rust, and Node/Typescript
  • The ability to proactively manage the needs of a growing company with minimal oversight

  • Experience with Ethereum developer tools like Foundry, Hardhat, OpenZeppelin and GnosisSafe

While a degree in CS is nice, you don't need one--or any other kind of degree--to work here. Some of the best people come from non-traditional backgrounds and disciplines, and we’re dedicated to supporting our employees’ education and growth.

We're honored you're considering joining us.
