About Messari.

Messari is the leading provider of crypto market intelligence products that help professionals navigate crypto/Web3 with confidence. We bring transparency and smarter qualitative and quantitative analytics to the industry by combining a global research database with a comprehensive suite of data visualization and asset discovery tools. We help drive smarter participation in crypto from individuals and institutions alike.
 
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

We are looking for an experienced backend engineer to improve the capabilities of our finance, sales, and marketing systems. As our business grows and becomes more complex, the needs of our internal customers, particularly our finance team, grow as well. Messari maintains a complex codebase for managing users and accounts, and we integrate with a number of third party tools as well for user authentication, billing, subscription management, etc.
 
This is a high-touch role where you will work full-time on tools critical to our internal stakeholders, writing new features and automations to help us manage our growing customer base. Experience with billing systems, particularly Stripe, is essential for this role. Although it is internal-facing, this role involves a great deal of creative freedom and opportunity to architect this critical pillar of our business the right way.
 
The right person for this role should be comfortable with finance and sales systems and excited about the challenge of reverse-engineering some of the oldest code in our codebase, much of which is in Java, into a robust, modular system. We expect you to rewrite much of our related internal tooling from scratch, so there will be little to no legacy code to deal with before too long. For most of our services, we like Go for its simplicity and maintainability. We deploy using Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services. That being said, we're not dogmatic and always believe in using the best tool for the job.

What you'll do

  • Design and build a modern user management and billing system using the most pleasant APIs and third-party tools in the space (Stripe, Chargify/Chargebee)
  • Manage integrations that help other teams keep productive (Hubspot/Salesforce, NetSuite, etc.)
  • Design and build internal reporting tools of use across teams
  • Scale up our systems by an order of magnitude

Who you are

  • 3+ years experience with modern backend technologies including Golang, Postgres, and AWS (Java is helpful too!)
  • Experience with Stripe or another modern billing API in production and at scale
  • A desire to work on big complex projects with lots of creative freedom
  • A passion for shipping high-quality products
  • Empathetic and love to help your teammates grow
  • Accounting or finance experience is a plus, but not required

Projects you could work on

  • Billing and Subscriptions! Design and build a new system with all the proper integrations to manage our growing list of subscribers, from individuals to large institutional customers. 
  • User Management! Write a new microservice to own and maintain our customer list internally and across our integrations, handle API key generation, authentication, etc. 
  • Reporting! Help streamline internal reporting by exposing relevant metrics to our finance and data science teams, and for leadership

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
