Role Description:

  • Write custom C code that leverages modern cryptographic libraries to write applications intended to run inside Hardware Security Modules and other enclaves.
  • Review code across the entire stack and engineering organization while actively participating in product development. 
  • Find the right balance between progress (i.e. shipping quickly) and perfection (i.e. measuring twice). 
  • Foster an efficient deterministic testing culture, with an emphasis on minimizing tech debt and bureaucracy.
  • Influence architecture/product roadmap - have a seat at the table. 
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with everyone.
  • Help scale the team.
  • Work on the front lines of the blockchain/crypto movement and SecOps innovation. 
  • Ship code that will impact the global economy.

Buzzwords:

  • Backend Tech: Go, C, Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, Vault, GCP, AWS, and GraphQL.
  • Frontend Tech: ReactJS, Flow, D3, CSS Modules, Webpack, Jest, and Cypress.
  • Mobile Tech:  Swift, RxSwift, CocoaPods, and Secure Enclave.
  • Engineering Methodologies: Reverse uptime, cryptographically linked data models, tamper resistant ledgers, air gapped infrastructure, secure execution environments, container orchestration, repeatable builds, and infra-as-code. 

Qualifications:

  • Your programming languages of choice are C, C++, and Go. 
  • You have comprehensive experience with secure low level C/C++  programming, kernel development/hardening, and/or embedded systems. 
  • You are familiar with Hardware Security Modules - ideally Thales. 
  • You have real world experience shipping product and implementing secure frameworks, libraries, and services. 
  • You have a deep understanding of common crypto protocols (TLS, GPG, SSH, etc.), code signing, networks security, authentication/authorization, and the threat landscape for state-of-the-art attacks. 
  • You genuinely care about code quality and test infrastructure. 
  • You prioritize end-user experience and business value over “cool tech.”
  • You have developed “computer science fundamentals”, i.e. concurrency, algorithms, and data structures (Formal CS degree NOT required). 
  • You self-describe as some combination of the following: creative, humble, ambitious, detail-oriented, hardworking, trustworthy, eager to learn, methodical, action-oriented, and tenacious. 

Bonus Points:

  • In your mind the word “crypto” stands for cryptography, not cryptocurrency.
  • You read blockchain protocol white papers for fun, and stay up to date with the proliferation of cryptoasset innovations.
  • You have a background in the finance industry.
  • You were emotionally moved by the soundtrack to Hamilton, which chronicles the founding of a new financial system. :)

Company Benefits:

  • 100% coverage of health, dental, & vision for you and your dependents.
  • One Medical Membership
  • Pre-tax commuter benefits
