Are you an energetic, talented and experienced full stack developer who is passionate about distributed systems, smart contract platforms and decentralized applications?
As a full stack application developer at Near, you will work closely with our product team and our deeply experienced designer to build across the application layer, which currently includes the web-based Near wallet, block explorer and IDE. The application suite will expand over time, including web apps, mobile apps and smart contracts.
This is a high productivity and highly dynamic startup environment so you will need to be comfortable operating quickly but precisely amidst changing needs. There is also lots of opportunity to help inform the product development process and inject your own creativity.
To be successful in this role, you will need strong experience operating throughout the stack from dev ops up to web-based front ends and shipping code with regularity (eg in startup and/or consulting environments). Our web stack is React/Redux-based, our smart contracts are based in TypeScript and our back end is written in Rust (though we have a few Python components lurking in there too). Comfort with development best practices, testing and CI is a must. In such a dynamic environment, great communication is also essential.
While energy and enthusiasm are key, this is a position for **well-experienced developers only**.
## Key Outcomes:
- Rapidly build and deploy core Near products including the wallet, explorer, educational portal and online IDE.
- Rapidly implement new products and smart contract infrastructure atop NEAR and bridges with other chains.
## Key Metrics:
- Precision, quality and reliability of key apps and experiences.
- Effective communication and consistent shipping.
- Excellent code quality and style.
- 5+ years building production-level applications and experiences in rapid iteration, high-quality environments like top tier startups and consultancies.
- Comfort operating across the full stack including front end web, mobile, back end, smart contracts and dev ops.
