Full Stack DeFi Engineer
€50 – 90k + Equity / Tokens

Berlin based or willing to relocate

Chainflip enables cross-chain cryptocurrency swapping - like swapping Bitcoin for Ethereum - without using centralised exchanges, specialised wallets, or wrapped tokens. Think of it like Uniswap, but you will always receive the native token.

Existing decentralised token swapping solutions suffer from a range of issues that severely limit usability, privacy, and practicality. Chainflip is a protocol for automated cross-chain token swaps that resolves these issues with a truly decentralised solution.

We will be dramatically expanding the team over the next 6 months, and we’re looking for people who are looking to be a part of a fast growing early stage team to carry forward the vision we have for the future of permissionless value transfer.

You’ll be joining an experienced founder along with an existing engineering team and ongoing support from another major project. We’re an early stage venture but we already have momentum, funding and, most importantly, a plan.

If you’re ambitious, experienced, and passionate about DeFi we want to hear from you.

The Role

As an early member of the Chainflip team you will have the opportunity to grow within the business and propel your career in an industry that can truly change how we view self-sovereignty and transfer of value.

Much of our backend technology stack relies heavily on our own Rust based software which includes p2p networking, consensus mechanisms, blockchain technology, and cryptography.

We are now looking for an experienced Full Stack Engineer to join our high performing Berlin based team. You will be the glue that works closely with our Rust and Substrate Engineers with a slight focus on Front End development and auxiliary tooling.

You should be well versed in building high traffic, low latency web applications that are capable of processing a large number of transactions simultaneously. You will need to be incredibly proficient with JavaScript, we’ll likely favour Node on the backend and React on the front end, and you should have a good working knowledge of Rust as well.

Further to this, skills in web infrastructure deployment are invaluable to the project. Any DevOps or cloud infrastructure engineering and security skills will go a long way in your application.

Although a challenging task, our existing engineering team of seven are capable of delivering the product, but with additional experienced engineers working alongside them, we will be able to achieve much more in a shorter time frame. As an early employee to Chainflip you have an amazing opportunity to help steer the direction of our toolset and software, and also the scope of what we are building.

Salary range is €50k - 90k, plus equity/tokens

The Process

Please submit your CV for review. For our engineering or technical roles, the first stage is a 1hr remote code interview run by our existing engineering team in a language of your choice. Following this you will have a more informal meeting with some other members of the team.

This is a key hire, so we are willing to move quickly for the right person.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you join us on our journey.
