The name “Messari” came from the Franciscan monks who declared "clean books" a moral imperative during the renaissance and pushed merchants to use proper accounting methods.  This led to the flourishing of investment via "trust but verify" methods and industry growth throughout Europe. That's what we aim to do. Provide participants, investors, builders, platforms, and everyone else with reliable information to better participate in the crypto ecosystem.
 
Our users range from some of the most prominent analysts, investors, and crypto individuals to top organizations including Coinbase, BitGo, Anchorage, 0x, Chainanalysis, Ledger, Compound, MakerDAO, and many more.

Your role

You are an experienced backend engineer who will own, improve and extend our content ingestion service. To be the best source of crypto information, we need to ingest most relevant sources of content, covering industry and traditional news, blogs, forums, papers and all sorts of feeds automatically. This presents interesting scalability, robustness and quality challenges for real-time applications and historic analysis.

From a technical side, the content service is currently built in Python on top of PostgreSQL & RabbitMQ and is deployed as a Kubernetes cluster of microservices. Most of the other services at Messari are Golang based with some Rust for performance and Java for legacy apps. We are pragmatic with technology choices and like to pick areas of innovation carefully.

What you’ll do

  • Own and manage the architecture, implementation, deployment, monitoring and integration of the content ingest services within Messari and for outside consumers
  • Add new content sources as we expand our coverage (forums, websites, outlets, etc.).
  • Maintain, extend and improve the existing ingestion pipelines

Who you are

  • 3+ years experience with production backend software engineering using reasonably modern technologies (like SQL, Git) and languages (like Python, Java, Golang).
  • Ready and willing to own and drive a complex project, from taking into account internal and external stakeholders to defining, refining, planning, executing and maintaining a vision.
  • Experience in or serious interest with in building robust data ingestion pipelines.
  • Willing, capable and happy to get deep down into the unglamorous but essential details of operating a complex service (e.g., tuning SQL query performance, handling weird endpoints)

Projects you could work on

  • Content ingestion: Extend our content ingestion pipelines to cover any sources of off-chain / non-market signal source we care about.
  • Internal content analysis tools: Build and integrate real time content analytics for our internal research team (some of which will turn into external products over time).

What's it like to work with our engineering team?

  • A welcoming and open environment with people who love to collaborate on ideas and tackle complex problems
  • Work with a small team of engineers with large impact across product, research, and business development
  • Participate in forums like Family Meals and Messari Lab to share ideas or technologies you’ve been exploring and tinkering with
