The Department: Consumer Experience

The Role: Staff Software Engineer (Backend)

As a Staff Software Engineer, you’ll help solve complex problems that will directly influence the direction of the digital asset space. We are a team of self-starters, self-driven owners. There’s a wide range of problems to solve at Gemini – from properly securing millions of dollars worth of customer funds, to developing innovative new blockchain products, to shaving microseconds off our API response times. We have a strong culture of code reviews, and a focus on security, with the end goal of writing and shipping high-quality code by getting things right the first time. We want to continue building the best product we can as we scale and grow our business. If you get excited about solving technical challenges that directly impact our customers, clients, and the rest of the Gemini team, we’d love to hear from you.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop new products and product features on the Gemini platform, as part of a tight-knit team of six to eight developers.
  • Own the DevOps lifecycle for a product; building, validating and maintaining high quality products through their lifetime.
  • Provide technical input and knowledge to the planning, design, and requirements process for new products and features for both your immediate team and others.
  • Author high quality code and review other software engineers’ code for correctness, style, and information security concerns.
  • Improve the performance, maintainability, and operations of the Gemini codebase by engaging in occasional refactoring and upgrade projects.
  • Experience working with high-performing teams of engineers on new problem areas for product development.
  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills with the ability to work closely across sub teams and manage dependencies.
  • Sound business judgment, with a proven ability to influence others and make excellent business and technical decisions.
  • A customer-focused empathy and understanding of the challenges that developers face when using an application development platform, and a vision for how great products can help.
  • Continually raise the bar of technical quality; championing best practices, identifying and presenting solutions to meta-development challenges, up-leveling peers and testing assumptions.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • At least 8 years of software engineering experience.
  • Building microservices in the cloud (AWS / GCP / Azure etc) and building high-available services at scale.
  • Advanced proficiency in at least one programming language like Java, Rust, C++, Scala. We use mostly Scala and C++ on our backend – it’s great if you’re comfortable in those or if you’re willing to learn.
  • The ability to adapt and handle multiple competing priorities in collaboration with peers.
  • A customer and product-focused mindset, with the ability to make well-reasoned tradeoffs between speed and quality.
  • Demonstrated ability to lead the design and development of complex, innovative software solutions.
