  • Collaborate with blockchain engineers and product engineers to help create a compelling developer experience

  • Help shape the product & technical strategy for developer tools in the Stacks ecosystem

What we're looking for:

  • 5+ industry experience as a software engineer(or equivalent)

  • Experience building open-source developer tools(APIs, SDKs, services)

  • Passion for building delightful developer experiences and pride in your craft

  • Experience working on production services, with CI/CD tools and with cloud providers like AWS and GCP

  • Proficiency in at least one language or framework for building tools and services(e.g. NodeJS, Express, Rust, Go etc)

  • Good understanding and comfort with storage / caching solutions ranging from SQL databases(e.g. Postgres) to NoSQL systems(e.g. Redis)

  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills

  • Experience working being on or with remote / distributed teams

  • We’d love to hear from you even if you don’t have experience or interest in every bullet. There’s no perfect candidate and we want to find the right fit, even if it’s different than we imagine. We especially would like to meet underrepresented/underestimated candidates.

What we offer:

  • Competitive NYC based Salary(regardless of location, benchmarked annually)

  • Company equity and Stacks(STX) tokens--STX is the native cryptocurrency of the Blockstack network

  • $500/mo co-working space reimbursement

  • $1,200/yr budget for learning and development stipend
