The role as a Tech Evangelist/Developer Advocat at Subsquid

About Subsquid

Subsquid (former Hydra) is an open source framework for indexing and transforming blockchain data, making it easily accessible for dApps. Subsquid started as a Hakusama hackathon project a year ago, and is a member of the Substrate Builders program. Nowadays Subsquid powers one of the most complex dApps built on top of Substrate chains, such as Joystream Atlas and Subsocial. Subsquid with its battle-tested two-tier architecture is uniquely positioned to power the most complex and advanced applications in the Polkadot ecosystem and beyond. 

Our vision is that the growing complexity of Web3 dApps requires a new toolset for data ingestion and transformation. We believe that the developer’s creative minds should be focused on the application logic, and not be distracted by setting up the data infrastructure. Frequent iterations and short deployment cycles is what we understand by the best-in-class Dev UX.
