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.
* 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
* 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
* 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

Build and architect distributed systems for service connectivity focusing on AWS ECS and then expanding further to other AWS offerings.
Interface directly with internal teams, users and HashiCorp customers, as well as the larger Consul community.
Participate in user research studies and discussions with product managers and customers to better understand the network topologies, challenges, and constraints for which operators are trying to solve, and leverage those insights when approaching feature design and implementation.
Propose new functionality or substantive changes through written documents in an async process, describing the problem background, proposed implementation and example UX, then iterating on peer feedback collaboratively.
Own the full lifecycle of feature development from design through testing and release
Program mostly in Golang, learning from and contributing to a team committed to continually improving their skills.
Coach and mentor other team members within HashiCorp's engineering teams
You may be a good fit for our team if you have:
Familiarity with service-oriented architectures, and ideally have worked on an infrastructure or platform team building internal tooling to deploy, connect and monitor them.
Empathy for the people operating, learning, teaching and supporting software you write, and consider their experience when making design decisions and performance, security or complexity tradeoffs.
Experience in a lower-level language like Go.
Awareness of the broader service mesh ecosystem and an interest in contributing to a full-featured product offering while reducing complexity and barriers to adoption for practitioners.
Curiosity for academic computer science research, particularly distributed systems papers such as Raft and Paxos variants, and enjoy learning more about the challenges of consistency at global scale.
You have expertise with AWS Cloud runtimes like ECS, Fargate, Lambda.
What is our hiring process like?
The below serves as a basic outline; we may choose to add or remove steps based on the information that we gather during the process.
Introductory Call with someone from our recruiting team.
First Interview with an Engineering Manager
Interview Loop with additional team members, with the following panel:
Technical Code Pairing interview
Code Review interview
Communication and Collaboration interview
Systems and architecture interview
If applicable, a final conversation with the Engineering Manager for the team you would be joining
We do our best to accommodate your programming language of choice for technical interviews.
About the Application Process:
Please note, as collaboration and communication are a critical aspect of how we work, a cover letter is a great way to provide a sample of how you communicate.
In your cover letter, please describe why you're interested in working at HashiCorp, and what draws you to this role in particular. Specifics of your past experience that are relevant to this role are great to include, too.

SwiftComply is an award-winning early-stage technology company with a mission to protect human health and the environment with an all-in-one cloud-based software that empowers local governments to easily manage their water, wastewater, and stormwater compliance programs.
We were founded in 2016 by our founder and CEO, Mick O’Dwyer. As a water & wastewater engineer at Dublin City Council (Ireland), Mick saw first hand how manual, paper-based and inefficient compliance programs can be. He created SwiftComply to fix this problem with modern, collaborative technology.
Today, SwiftComply supports over 400+ utilities that deliver water service to 50+ million citizens - and we’re expanding the team to make an even bigger impact!
