Edge & Node stands as the revolutionary vanguard of web3, a vision of a world powered by individual autonomy, shared self-sovereignty and limitless collaboration. Established by trailblazers behind The Graph, we’re on a mission to make The Graph the internet’s unbreakable foundation of open data. Edge & Node invited and standardized subgraphs across the industry, solidifying The Graph as the definitive way to organize and access blockchain data. Utilizing a deep expertise in developing open-source software, tooling, and protocols, we empower builders and entrepreneurs to bring unstoppable applications to life with revolutionary digital infrastructure.

Edge & Node acts on a set of unwavering principles that guide our journey in shaping the future. We champion a decentralized internet - free from concentrated power - where collective consensus aligns what is accepted as truth, rather than authoritative dictation. Our commitment to censorship resistance reinforces our vision of an unyielding information age free from the grasp of a single entity. By building for open-source, we challenge the stagnant landscape of web2, recognizing that true innovation thieves in transparency and collaboration. We imagine a permissionless future where the shackles imposed by central gatekeepers are not only removed, but relegated to the dustbin of a bygone era. And, at the foundation of it all, our trust shifts from malevolent middlemen to trustless systems, leveraging smart contracts to eliminate the age-old vulnerabilities of misplaced trust.

The Graph Network Engineering team is focused on building and maintaining core software components that make The Graph work. We are especially focused on graph-node, an Open Source Rust project that provides the core indexing capabilities of The Graph.

We are looking for an experienced and highly motivated software engineer who will work in close contact with Edge & Node’s SRE team and DBA to run a large Graph Node operation in production. This role requires a deep understanding of Rust, familiarity with developing open source software, and ideally prior infrastructure and database experience.

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Establishing operational guidelines, objectives, and best practices for running Graph Nodes in production and their databases
  • Actively monitoring and intervening in the Graph Nodes and their databases to ensure adherence to these standards
  • Maintaining dashboards and identifying gaps in metrics, raising those gaps to the relevant team
  • Monitoring operational expenses and seeking opportunities to reduce costs
  • Propose, design and develop new ops tooling to make our team more effective
  • Recognizing the risks of outages and data corruption, and proactively coordinating mitigation strategies and recovery strategies for those scenarios

What We Expect

  • Previous experience with relational databases
  • Successful track record of monitoring metrics and observability
  • History of displaying extreme ownership in the workplace
  • Previous experience communicating and working alongside both software engineers and devops engineers/site reliability engineers
  • Proven track record of building software in Rust

About the Graph

The Graph is the indexing and query layer of web3. The Graph Network’s self service experience for developers launched in July 2021. Developers build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, that applications can query using GraphQL. The Graph supports indexing data from multiple different networks including Ethereum, NEAR, Arbitrium, Optimism, Polygon, Avalanche, Celo, Fantom, Moonbeam, IPFS, and PoA with more networks coming soon. To date, tens-of-thousands of subgraphs have been deployed on the hosted service, and now subgraphs can be deployed directly on the network. Over 28,000 developers have built subgraphs for applications such as Uniswap, Synthetix, KnownOrigin, Art Blocks, Balancer, Livepeer, DAOstack, Audius, Decentraland, and many others.

If you are a developer building an application or web3 application, you can use subgraphs for indexing and querying data from blockchains. The Graph allows applications to efficiently and performantly present data in a UI and allows other developers to use your subgraph too! You can deploy a subgraph to the network using the newly launched Subgraph Studio or query existing subgraphs that are in the Graph Explorer. The Graph would love to welcome you to be Indexers, Curators and/or Delegators on The Graph’s mainnet. Join The Graph community by introducing yourself in The Graph Discord for technical discussions, join The Graph’s Telegram chat, and follow The Graph on Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Reddit, and Medium! The Graph’s developers and members of the community are always eager to chat with you, and The Graph ecosystem has a growing community of developers who support each other.

The Graph Foundation oversees The Graph Network. The Graph Foundation is overseen by the Technical Council. Edge & Node, StreamingFast, Messari, Semiotic  and The Guild are five of the many organizations within The Graph ecosystem.
