We are looking for an experienced software developer to join our core tech team as a Backend Engineer.
We’re looking for smart people at any level of seniority.
As a backend engineer, working in a team that implements the core blockchain or products around it, you will be responsible for

You will need to work in an appropriate programming language for the job in hand; increasingly, this will mean Rust, but we have substantial codebases in C++ and typescript, and some code in golang and python.
Our backend engineers work in a variety of tasks including core and platform development, product and data engineering, and security. If you have a particular interest in one or more of these, please let us know in your application.
