We’re looking for a full-time talented engineer to build tools that provide the best developer experience of our Blockchain API users. You don’t need to have any prior experience with blockchain technology, just an interest in learning about it - we can help you learn what you need to know once you start, though previous experience in this field would be a bonus.

  • Work on improving the reliability of our API tools, as well as developing innovative tools

Requirements

  • Proven experience with Golang and microservice architecture
  • Experience with Typescript/JavaScript is a bonus
  • Experience with k8s and Docker is a plus
  • Strong interest in blockchain integrations (Experience is not necessary but a willingness to learn is critical)
  • You are proactive in learning new stacks and have a high sense of taking ownership

We’re an English-speaking team, so no German knowledge will be required 

Your package:

  • Our salary package is typically above average
  • A great office in the heart of Berlin Mitte
  • You will receive personal coaching sessions
  • A brand-new laptop and a comfortable work space
  • Annual off-site events
  • We have flat hierarchies, you can grow into any role


Our values:

  • Think Fearlessly, Act Fast: We embrace the accelerated pace and ambiguity of building a business on the frontier. We take risks and look forwards.
  • Be Street Smart: We are always tuned in to what is going on. With ourselves, our team, our users and the market.
  • Step Up, Stand Together: Every individual is prepared to speak up for what they believe in and stand
    together as a team to deliver the result, even when the going gets tough.
  • Low Egos, High Expectations: Although we take our work seriously, we don’t take ourselves too
    seriously. We have hunger and humility in equal measure.
