Job Description

Swish is a world-class development studio whose teams have delivered products for Google, Microsoft, Kik, Nasdaq, Factset, and other major enterprises. The blockchain engineering team at Swish is looking for talented distributed systems engineers to optimize protocol transaction throughput and network reliability for blockchains in development.

Our mission is to bring the promise of a decentralized blockchain-based future to reality for clients.

As a systems engineer, you will work with our blockchain developers, protocol researchers and clients to implement and improve on a byzantine fault tolerant blockchain architecture based on the Tendermint consensus layer, by increasing the throughput, reliability and stability of the network. This role is ideal for engineers who have experience optimizing performance and robustness of distributed systems, and are excited to be working on the cutting edge of high-performance blockchain protocol development.

You might have experience as an Unix/Linux distributed systems engineer optimizing performance and reliability for large-scale cloud servers, and be relatively new to blockchain and distributed consensus protocols. Or you might be a blockchain engineer who is very familiar with distributed consensus protocols like delegated proof-of-stake, and newer to working on low-level performance optimizations. Experience with Tendermint is a huge plus. Either way, you are a great detective and passionate about pushing the performance of your infrastructure to its limits, without compromising on safety or stability.

We are also looking for: Strong communication skills. Experience with performance and load testing.

You should be motivated by a desire to solve the most important problems, obtain unprecedented results, and push your methods to their maximal performance.

Responsibilities * Optimize Tendermint consensus protocol codebase for speed, reliability and performance, including making PRs as needed to the OSS Tendermint project * Troubleshoot reliability issues of distributed systems, e. g. connection losses between Tendermint nodes under heavy load * Monitor the infrastructure and blockchain performance to identify issues * Measure and improve server response times in different conditions and environments * Guide protocol design decisions

Requirements * 1+ years experience with Golang, C or C++ * 4+ years of experience in a systems engineering role * Deep experience with networking and concurrent computing * Deep experience with Unix/Linux systems * Experience with AWS/GCP * Comfortable operating in dynamic environments

Bonus Points * Background in networking or distributed systems * Familiarity with Cosmos / Tendermint * Proficiency in protocol-level blockchain development * Contribution to open source software * Degree in STEM field, especially software engineering or computer science related. * Experience in small start­up environments helping large enterprises. * Experience with a distributed team

Our people are what makes our team special - because of that, we work hard to provide our full-time team members with perks that make their lives better by offering:

○ Flexible vacation & remote work policy - as we accomplish our goals, time off is more than a must. Most team members take between 15-20 days off per year, but we have no hard limit for our high impact individuals.

○ Diverse opportunities for learning and development - we provide resources for conferences, classes, books, and other opportunities to maintain and expand your skill set and professional growth.

○ Fitness reimbursements - stay fit with our reimbursements for health-related benefits like gym memberships, fitness apps, and personal training.

○ Top-Line equipment - in addition to receiving a company smartphone of your choice with a paid voice/data plan, every team member receives a generous equipment budget to try new gadgets, tools, and platforms.

○ Flexible parental leave policies - We understand the importance and demands of a growing family. In addition to state, provincial, and federal leave allowances, parents on the team have the flexibility to work from home or take days off when family needs to come first.

○ When we can safely return to our office, fuel up with healthy snacks and coffee, get fit with an onsite gym, recover with onsite RMT/acupuncturist, and meet the many furry friends of our dog-friendly office!

At Dapper Labs we recruit the best and foster an environment that empowers our team. That means a workplace that is diverse, inclusive, and open-minded. We welcome applicants of all backgrounds, regardless of race, colour, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or disability.
