Senior Blockchain Engineer

May 8, 2024

Job Description

We comprise a diverse team, with half of us possessing strong technical skills, and the other half excelling in fostering relationships with data providers, developers, and the DeFi community. Effective communication is pivotal in our network-driven approach.

Our team operates remotely, spanning across the US, South America, Europe, and Asia, with an optional office in Porto, Portugal. Remote work is our standard practice, emphasizing proficiency in English for both internal team communication and engagement with external developers.

We thrive in a startup environment within the dynamic DeFi space, seeking adaptable problem solvers who are eager to address evolving market needs. Our commitment to open-source development is evident through our projects on GitHub, showcasing our dedication to user-centric solutions.

As part of our team, your responsibilities will include contributing to the conceptualization, development, and maintenance of Pyth-related projects, encompassing both on-chain and off-chain components such as smart contracts, SDKs, and utility programs. You’ll play a pivotal role in shaping our project’s direction by collaborating with business development and sales teams.

Mentoring junior engineers and upholding high standards in software design and documentation are integral aspects of this role. Additionally, you’ll engage with the developer community, understanding their requirements, and tailoring SDKs, documentation, and tools to meet their needs.

We’re looking for individuals with at least 4 years of software engineering experience, preferably in large-scale, safety-critical systems. While experience in smart contract and blockchain development is advantageous, it’s not mandatory. Candidates without blockchain experience should demonstrate proficiency in backend engineering and a grasp of low-level programming languages like Rust or C++.

A passion for fast-paced, startup environments and an ability to adapt swiftly to the ever-changing DeFi market are highly valued. Proficiency or a willingness to learn Rust, Solidity, Python, and Typescript is essential. Strong technical communication skills, along with the capacity to mentor engineers of varying skill levels and manage periodic on-call responsibilities, are desired traits.

At Douro Labs, we embrace diversity and inclusion, fostering an equal-opportunity workplace free from discrimination or harassment. Our hiring decisions are based on qualifications, merit, and business needs, aiming to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for all. We’re excited to meet individuals who are ready to contribute to our innovative projects and collaborative team culture!
