  • Design and implementation of a low-latency, high-availability, and performant algorithmic hedge fund and exchange order book. 
  • Integration of the Herdius distributed private key generation protocol. 
  • Constant performance testing and improvement of our architecture. 
  • Working on new financial products that have not been seen in the crypto world, setting up the base-layer infrastructure of a trading system and hedge fund

Your profile:

  • Strong proficiency & experience working with Golang
  • 3+ years of experience as a backend engineer, language agnostic but Go, React, NodeJS, Vue.JS, Scala, Angular, Rust preferred 
  • Experience and passion working with distributed systems and networking 
  • Strong interest in blockchains and related technologies 
  • Passion for delivering quality, secure code with loads of testing 
  • User authentication and authorization between multiple systems, servers, and environments

  • Implementing automated testing platforms and unit tests

Your education or experience at the end of the day does not matter to us. It all comes down to us being convinced by your skills and drive! 
We mainly look for people who are passionate about projects they work on and have the drive to see a project through. Our code is mostly done in Golang with some Solidity for connectivity with Ethereum.
