  • Develop as a fullstack developer in Typescript, Javascript, Haskell, and Rust.
  • Invent solutions around the blockchain of our supported currencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin, and others added all the time.
  • Work in an ever evolving micro-service architecture.
  • Collaborate closely on agile teams of designers, developers, and product managers to build new features and applications.
  • Write automated tests around your code and leverage type checkers for maximal reliability.
  • Research and educate the team on new technologies, from theoretical blockchain features to third party integrations.

What you have:

  • A proven history of writing scalable, modular, and resilient code.
  • Excitement and drive to learn new technologies.
  • Extensive experience in at least one of our four (Typescript, JS, Haskell, Rust) major languages, and willingness to dive into the others as needed.
  • Comfort and willingness to transition between front and back end.
  • A working knowledge of AWS.
  • Interest in helping to develop less experienced team members.
  • Respect for quality assurance and the ability to write robust integration and unit tests.
  • Understanding of Bitcoin and Ethereum fundamentals, e.g...
    • What is the purpose of mining?
    • How is Bitcoin sent from one address to another?
    • How does this differ from Ethereum?
  • Familiarity with cryptographic primitives like hashing, macs, PK-crypt.
  • Excellent references and a history of trust in former careers


Benefits:

  • Opportunity to experiment with new tools and bring your own input to the company vision.
  • Company intramural sports teams, ‘Culture Committee’, and company outings.
  • Strong feedback loops and consistent 1:1s with your engineering manager.

Extrinsic

  • Brand new machines, sitting-standing desks, and mountain views.
  • New office in the heart of Downtown Denver with quick access to I-25, I-70 and Light Rail.
  • Walking distance to top restaurants, Union Station, and major sports venues.
  • Excellent benefits package with 401k matching, paid medical, dental and vision--employee and immediate family.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
