Software Engineer, Data Infrastructure

Dune Analytics is on a mission to make crypto data accessible.

Dune Analytics



Dune Analytics is on a mission to make crypto data accessible. We started out in 2018 pioneering a new way to query blockchain data, using generated tables and decoded data. Today we’re a collaborative data analytics platform which is used by tens of thousands of developers, analysts, investors and community members to better understand how the crypto ecosystem works.

is one of the most widely referenced sources of onchain data for blockchains such as Ethereum and xDAI (with many more coming). Our community is constantly creating novel analyses, clever data abstractions and dashboards in the open, making the knowledge in the ecosystem truly compounding. 

Today we’re a team of 7 full time members working remotely from all across Europe. We cherish working on a product that first and foremost enables our users to create and do their own research. We’re backed by some of the world's best investors, and we’re constantly looking for the best colleagues to join our outfit.

We’re now at a crucial stage in our journey, as the financial activity on blockchains is exploding. Dune needs to scale to ingest ever-increasing volumes of data from a rapidly increasing number of sources, and facilitate performant and user-friendly querying of this data via SQL and other APIs. 

About the role

Dune is a small team building large things. We are generalist engineers who pick up any and all challenges together. We like to think and design before jumping into coding. We mainly use Go and TypeScript to build scalable systems that are easy to build upon.

As a software engineer in Dune focused on Data Infrastructure you will play a key role in ensuring our data platform scales to accommodate an ever-growing volume of public blockchain data. This is a role that involves thinking about large scale distributed systems and distributed databases, and is ideal for anyone passionate about those topics.

We are building a data platform that 

  • Can ingest and process large volumes of data

  • Allows third parties to ingest data

  • Facilitates performant SQL queries across datasets

  • Will serve as the foundation for many, if not all, future Dune products

In this role you will:

  • Design and develop distributed systems in a principled way and take part in high impact architectural decisions

  • Engage in stimulating technical challenges in topics such as distributed systems, very large databases, SQL processing, data modelling, or systems performance

  • Assume ownership of components within our data infrastructure, e.g., data ingestion, query performance, etc.

  • Write code mostly in Go with a strong emphasis on good design and performance

  • Collaborate in a respectful team environment that is fully distributed

You might be a great fit for this role if:

  • You are a strong generalist with fundamental computer science knowledge. You use this knowledge to easily adapt to new technologies and scenarios, and to find the right solutions for the problems at hand.

  • You have an understanding of distributed system design, or the drive to learn if you’re a more junior engineer. Our work is as much about understanding and designing systems as it is about coding in a particular language.

  • You have great collaboration and communication skills. We work on the principle that the best output emerges from effective team work and respectful/constructive discussions.

  • Coding experience in Go or similar language, along with a zeal for writing well-designed, testable software

Not required but a plus if:

  • You have a Master’s or PhD degree in Computer Science, related field, or equivalent experience

  • You have experience with database internals, massive data storage and processing, and systems performance

Perks and Benefits

  • Remote role with flexible working hours within a fully distributed team

  • Competitive salary and equity package

  • Regular offsites with the team (when covid allows)

  • 5 weeks paid vacation + local public holidays

  • Stipend for setting up your home office / co-working space.

View company profile

Dune Analytics was founded in Oslo, Norway by Fredrik and Mats in the summer of 2018. In Oslo we had ~0 potential customers so two weeks later we spontaneously jumped on a plane to attend the very first ETH Berlin 🛫

We knew practically no-one, but were extremely excited to meet the community members. This is where we first met the Dharma team, which we brought on as our first paying customer 3 months later 💪

⏩ Fast forward to late 2019 when we launched the free and open version of Dune, making it easy for anyone to instantly and seamlessly analyse Ethereum data and share their findings with the community.

Since then our growth has been exponential with top teams, researchers, investors and community members across the world now leveraging Dune on a daily basis! 🤙

To date, Dune has been built and operated by the two founders alone. Frankly, we are proud of what we have achieved with a team that can fit on a T-bar lift. However, our user base and ambitions now require a chair-lift size team! 🚡

In September 2020 we raised a $2M seed round from the crypto industry's very best investors including Dragonfly Capital, Multicoin Capital, Hashed, Coinbase Ventures and more. See the announcement here 📈

It's time to take Dune Analytics to the next level and we're incredibly excited to now be hiring for our very first non-founder team members. Join us and help us realise the full potential of Dune Analytics! 💫

Our adventures 🛸

While mostly being based in Oslo we are operating remotely. We love the combination of being at home to focus and build, and every now and then heading out into the world to engage with the global Dune and Ethereum community 🌎

In just two short years, Dune has brought us to Berlin, London, Denver, San Francisco, Osaka, Paris and Praha. We've stayed in some good hotels  and some really bad ones (looking at you SF prices 😤), but had great fun across the globe. 

Our trips have also lead us to skiing (Fredrik loves this), climbing (Mats loves this), eating exciting food, coffee, (quite) a few beers, singing karaoke and so much more fun stuff while on the road ⛷🧗‍♀️🏔
