We’re looking for a stellar senior backend engineer to join our team. We’re an early startup so roles are hard to capture in a job description; we tried our best below.

This might be a good place for you if:

You are highly technical with deep experience on a wide range of backend challenges; you are constantly learning; you have experience with security and DevOps; you may have experience or are excited to learn more about data analysis and evolving areas of research, especially around the blockchain, such as Multi-Party Computation (MPC); and you love working on things that add a ton of value to consumers and developers alike. You are excited to create and help lead the team in managing a secure, stable, and scalable system.

🛠 What you’ll be working on at Ethos:

  1. Wallet infrastructure. Create and maintain the systems to ensure our wallet infrastructure is scalable and secure, including the internal processes for that security. We’re currently mostly working in NextJS / TypeScript with a Postgres database.
  2. Scalable systems. While there’s a lot of web3 here, we still have “web2” servers and databases running that need to scale appropriately and codebases that need proper infrastructure to support that scaling.
  3. Product thinking. This is a startup, and our entire team needs to be intimately involved in solving customer’s problems. Our users are both developers and consumer end-users.
  4. Teaching other team members on DevOps, security, and data analysis. Encouraging the entire team to adopt best practices for stability, scalability, security, dev ops and data analysis.

⚡️ About You

  • Experience keeping production systems running smoothly
  • Experience building software and systems to manage platform infrastructure and applications
  • You love working collaboratively with different disciplines and learning from others
  • You are an expert who stays curious
  • You are a thoughtful communicator and collaborator and work to gain consensus with your peers and stakeholders, but you’re not afraid to speak up
  • You want to win, but prefer to win as a team
  • You are proactive
  • You have 7+ years of experience in an engineering role…or if you don’t, you are still confident you have what it takes to succeed in this role.
  • You are thoughtful and open about your priorities, goals, and aspirations so we can help you achieve them

*****If you don’t have all these experiences and skills and think you’d be a great fit for this role regardless, please still apply and let us know why.
