Islands is a technology company that builds economic infrastructure for the community economy. Communities of all sizes can use our software to manage digital assets and pay people and projects globally. Our vision is to create a new community platform that is open and accessible.

We are funded by major VC funds and individuals such as founders and executives from Reddit, Solana, Polygon, Coinbase, Twitch, Shopify, Notion and more.

Here's what your day to day responsibilities looks like:
  • Design & develop blockchain protocol integrations 
  • Evangelize and drive adoption of crypto-first product features
  • Work closely with engineering to architect and develop distributed systems that scale protocol integrations to millions of users
  • Design and implement foundational protocol integrations on the Solana and Ethereum networks as well as marketplaces such as OpenSea and MagicEden
  • Automate the deployment and monitoring of blockchain network and protocol infrastructure 
  • Develop monitoring, alerting, and observability frameworks to maintain consistent user experiences

Here's what we're looking for in an ideal candidate:

  • 5+ years of experience as an individual contributor with blockchain development experience
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills to collaborate with both technical and non-technical stakeholders
  • Proficiency in modern programming languages such as Go, Rust, and Node/Typescript
  • Experience building and deploying scalable, secure, and performant systems to production
  • Can proactively manage the needs of a growing company with minimal oversight

Bonus if you have this:

  • Experience maintaining open source software
  • Experience designing distributed systems that scale blockchain indexing and broadcast workflows
  • Experience developing with Ethereum Layer 2 (L2) scaling solutions (eg Optimism, Arbitrum, zkSync, and Starkware)

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.
Islands is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our business better. If you think you're a good match for our vision and values, we'd love to hear from you!
We're honored you're considering joining us.
