For the first time, gamers can easily and securely sell and trade their items. The second one is the new Ethereum Wallet.

Responsibilities:
  • Architect, develop, and implement the infrastructure, and infrastructure stack of our two products.
  • Design and implement services that are scalable, and fault-tolerant.
  • Build services that interface with the Ethereum blockchain.
  • Contribute to open-source works.
  • Extend and evolve our toolchain, to run our stack effectively.
  • Design architectural foundations that are robust and sound, so that future engineers can build on your work with ease and speed.
Requirements:
  • 4+ years shipping production-grade code in GO.
  • Knowledge of distributed systems design.
  • Experience with data systems, both in their design and practical use.
  • Experience with one of the major cloud providers, AWS, GCP, Azure, etc.
  • Growth mindset. You love to learn, and actively search out new material and technologies.
Will be plus to have:
  • Experience and knowledge of the Ethereum blockchain, their tooling, and ecosystem.
Benefits:
  • Full remote job.
  • Competitive USD salary with regular reviews.
  • Work-life balance unlike the "crunch" culture you find at larger studios.
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Zero bureaucracy.
  • Work with an outstanding team made of wonderful people who have built and sold successful companies, launched amazing products, and have rich experience in infrastructure, architecture, blockchain, games, finance, investing, strategy, consulting, design, marketing, community, and more.
  • A nimble, relaxed, and dynamic startup environment.
