Distributed Systems Engineer with Monax
London, United Kingdom£40k - 80k
2 years ago

Job Description

Distributed Systems Engineer - to help us build a public, decentralised, blockchain-backed legal agreements network

London
£40,000 - £80,000 plus options (ESOP).

Relocation package available for the right candidate. This role could also be based in our Edinburgh office.

Candidates currently based outside of London or Edinburgh must indicate their preferred location and willingness to relocate in their cover letter.

We are looking for kind, talented software engineers to help us make smart iterations on our legal agreements network as we deploy successive test networks.

Monax were pioneers of permissioned blockchains and smart contracts and we are building our Agreements Network to allow new and more efficient forms of legal transacting.

Exploiting the benefits of various decentralised, distributed, and masterless technologies - chiefly Hyperledger Burrow, which Monax built from scratch and still maintains based on the Tendermint consensus engine.

You will have the chance to work on a system that has distributed consensus and validation in a low trust environment at its heart and offers very interesting challenges, these could be:

  • Working with multiple clusters of nodes, most of which are not under your control to handle semi-automated network upgrades and governance votes. How do you upgrade a network you do not control?
  • Using cryptographic primitives like Verifiable Random Functions to orchestrate churn amongst network validators
  • Build package manager and compiler integrations for deploying and testing smart contracts
  • Implement low-level virtual machine instructions and improvements to our Ethereum Virtual Machine implementation

Working with our CTO on our Node Distribution Team you can expect to quickly own significant parts of our stack, and make decisions that will affect the company’s future viability in a fast-moving space (public permissioned consensus networks). You would also work closely with our Product Team who are responsible for building the foundational smart contracts, the business process modelling engine that drives the Agreements Network and also our particular front end (the network is open to extension by any of our co-founders however).

Your role will give you the chance to work across all teams in the business and it will also give you the opportunity to leave your mark in a growing industry, where you need to evaluate existing best practices and apply them to new technological paradigms and new programming languages. Navigating between the hype, the detractors and the zealots we believe there is real value in our approach and we intend to prove it.

You will join a business building a genuinely novel system, that in part intends to create an entirely new market by enabling legal products that challenge existing legal services.

This role would suit a talented software engineer, with solid technical skills in and a minimum of 3-4 years of software development experience. We are also open to engineers who can bring significantly more experience to the role. If you are a good match for Monax, we are willing to create a role that suits you.

Who do we need? Someone who has:

  • Go experience or the ability to pick it up in a few weeks
  • Kubernetes experience or the ability to pick it up in a few weeks
  • A degree-level qualification in a numerate discipline or equivalent evidence of analytic and reasoning skills and theoretical thinking
  • A good knowledge of algorithms and data structures
  • A hacker mentality towards making things work
  • An ability for long form design work ‘on pencil and paper’
  • An ineffable marmot-ness

It is crucial that you are able to take part in forceful yet respectful technical discussions with colleagues and that you are able to change your mind about something if required, and also are able to change other’s minds.

Real things you might work on:

  • Build a Kubernetes operator for Hyperledger Burrow
  • Devise a way to compress/normalise data in our merkle tree to control our long-term storage usage
  • Implement an atomic swap with public Ethereum to represent value on our chain
  • Write optimised native (Go) functions, callable from evm, to implement graph traversal over our business processes
  • Build fee allocation and distribution models that help maintain our network and provide the correct incentives

What can Monax offer you?

Extremely marketable blockchain and cryptocurrency skills.
The chance to make blockchain systems live up to their hype by making them highly operable, our network will be operated peer-to-peer by many parties and this needs to be as painless as possible.
Experience in blending distributed, decentralised, and centralised systems. To spend time working on something foundational at the level of a network architecture.
The chance to spend time thinking ‘around the software’; about law, economics, and game theory.
You will have a high level of autonomy. The business has just enough hierarchy, consensus and individual project responsibility (c.f. design-by-committee) favoured over diktats.
Flexible working - the successful candidate will be based in our London or Edinburgh work space primarily, but there is scope for flexible working and choosing your own hours and place of work when established.

Relocation assistance is available for the right candidate.

Who will you be working with?

Around fifteen people in our passionate cross functional team, including time with:

  • Our CTO in London, who would be your primary daily contact
  • Our CPO in New York, with whom you’ll liaise with to ensure the distribution platform and product stack work harmoniously.
  • Product Team members currently building the application stack.
  • Our Legal Engineers in New York providing crucial context to how legal products on the platform will be used
  • Our CEO in Edinburgh for just about anything else…

Software Engineer with Hashicorp
Charlotte, NC / Remote$125k - $140k
2 years ago

Job Description

On the Nomad team, we develop tools for service deployment and batch job scheduling. Our customers place a high level of trust in us, relying on our tools to operate their own infrastructure and software effectively, and so we care deeply about reliability and performance.

This particular position is unique in that in addition to general Nomad backend engineering duties, this person will be the sole internal owner of the Nomad integration for Spark. We anticipate that work taking approximately 15-20% of this person’s time, and the rest of the time will be spent working on the overall Nomad roadmap along with the rest of the Nomad team. While we strive to hire at a variety of experience levels, this particular opening is not well-suited for recent graduates due to the level of independent ownership we expect for the integration for Spark. You will have the support of a Product and Engineering Manager in prioritizing and delivering work for the integration, but minimal fine-grained oversight from other Nomad Engineers. You will, however, benefit from direct interactions with users of the tool! This is an excellent technical leadership opportunity for someone with the capacity to operate well at this level of independence.

At HashiCorp, we value top-notch collaboration and communication skills, both among internal teams and in how we interact with our users. We take care to balance and be responsive to the needs of our open source community as well as our enterprise level customers.

Engineering at HashiCorp is largely a remote team. While prior experience working remotely isn’t required, we are looking for team members who perform well given a high level of independence and autonomy.

In your cover letter, please describe why you’re interested in working at HashiCorp, and what draws you to this role in particular! Since this is a unique role on the team, we require a cover letter for your application to be considered complete.

In this role, you can expect to:

  • Be the sole internal owner of the Nomad integration for Spark
  • Program in Golang for general Nomad work, learning from and contributing to a team committed to continually improving their skills
  • Program in Scala for integration with Spark work, as an independent Scala expert
  • Work on next-generation distributed systems for infrastructure management
  • Develop novel algorithms within the context of our open source tools
  • Build and architect systems for managing extremely large-scale global fleets of resources
  • Interface directly with internal teams, users and HashiCorp customers, and represent HashiCorp well to the large Nomad community
  • Own the full lifecycle of feature development from design through testing and release

You may be a good fit for our team if:

  • You are fluent in Scala or a similar language (Java skills with an understanding of functional programming concepts is a workable substitute)
  • You are interested in learning Golang if you aren’t already well-versed

Senior Golang Backend Developer for Blockchain/FinTech with Herdius
Remote / Berlin, Germany€30k - €100k
1 year ago

Job Description

About Herdius:

Herdius is a Berlin based Blockchain Company. We are working on building homomorphic distributed private key generation which then is turned into value bearing products in different sectors. Currently we are very close to open beta-testing for the Herdius-Crypto-Wallet.
What we focus on on the blockchain field specifically is interoperability and trading. When connecting different chains on the key level, users can eliminate communication channels, bridges and complex systems. In other words, users can do cross-exchange and chain token swaps very conveniently and profitably for the user due to the cross-exchange arbitrage opportunities. The broader vision is one day to replace API auth keys with public-private key cryptography in order to provide layered access to user data.

All this makes for a crypto eco system and hedge fund that pays interest on all cryptocurrencies (that right now are unfortunately somewhat unusable and just laying around on wallets).

About the role:


Herdius is seeking for a Gopher Guru - an experienced Senior Golang Backend-Developer - to join our team of smart and visionary individuals. Experience in Blockchain is not necessary but a big plus.

We do not look at this role as another standard job but rather as great opportunity to build something really meaningful und amazing. Become a member of our great collective of top nodge engineers and people - altogether working to create cutting edge tech for the masses.

Besides the Herdius HQ in Berlin our Dev-Team is working mostly remote on different time-zones - so this vacancy surely also is location agnostic.

We would expect you to contribute at least 20hrs per week for part-time but joining full time is possible, too.



Cool things you will work on:

  • Implementation and design of Herdius’ consensus algorithm and p2p order routing protocol.
  • Lots of work around trading and high volume data handling and transfer.
  • Design and implementation of a low-latency, high-availability, and performant algorithmic hedge fund and exchange order book.
  • Integration of the Herdius distributed private key generation protocol.
  • Constant performance testing and improvement of our architecture.
  • Working on new financial products that have not been seen in the crypto world, setting up the base-layer infrastructure of a trading system and hedge fund

Skills & requirements

  • Strong proficiency & experience working with Golang
  • 3+ years of experience as a backend engineer, language agnostic but Go, React, NodeJS, Vue.JS, Scala, Angular, Rust preferred
  • Experience and passion working with distributed systems and networking
  • Strong interest in blockchains and related technologies
  • Passion for delivering quality, secure code with loads of testing
  • User authentication and authorization between multiple systems, servers, and environments
  • Interest in privacy and cryptography, trading and financial service
  • Understanding fundamental design principles behind various consensus algorithms
  • Understanding differences between dPOS, DAGs, Plasma, BFT, aBFT, etc.
  • Implementing automated testing platforms and unit tests
  • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools, such as Git

Interview Process

Your education or professional experience at the end of the day does not matter to us. It all comes down to us being convinced by your skills and drive! 
We mainly look for people who are passionate about projects they work on and have the drive to see a project through. Our code is mostly done in Golang with some Solidity for connectivity with Ethereum.

How to apply:

Send anything that reflects on your knowledge and experience in the field. Besides a CV/LinkedIn-profile you can send links of your GitHub/Stack Overflow/Portfolio/ or something awesome you’ve built that you’re simply proud of.

Software Engineer with Pivotal
London, United Kingdom£60k - £75k
1 year ago

Job Description

Always be kind: a simple daily affirmation and one that feels more like a personal mission statement than a corporate motto – but Pivotal isn’t just any corporation. Underpinning our world-class capabilities in cloud-native software delivery and agile development methodologies is one common thread: empathy. Not only do we want to transform the way the world builds software, we also want to make sure that sustainable pace, kindness, and diversity are at the core of every enterprise.

Known for taking an iterative approach, our 2000+ employees are empowered every day to help shape the way we build software. Pivotal is committed to open source, a diverse culture, and fostering safe spaces for all of our individual employees.

*You*

You are looking for a collaborative environment building distributed systems that enable enterprises to focus on their business rather than re-architecting a cloud platform from scratch. Pair programming has always been something that you wanted to try out.

Furthering your education has always been a goal of yours. Learning new programming languages and getting to work with Golang piques your interest.

Contributing to open source software makes you feel good about the transparency it brings to an organization’s code quality.

*Us*

Agile concepts are at the core of our process. We have a whole host of Pivotal Practices around Test Driven Development, pair programming, team retrospectives, technical retrospectives and continuous integration. We are excited to teach these to you and innovate with you on their implementation.

We stick to a strict 8 hour a day schedule (with flexible start and end times). Although on-call rotations are part of most teams, incidents are exceedingly rare.

We pair in small teams of 4 - 8 people in our London office, conveniently located at Old Street. We use Slack to stay connected and Tmux for pairing. We are working hard to make sure that our distributed teams function as smoothly as our distributed systems.

You’ll rarely be alone when developing; from pairing all day to 1 on 1 time with your manager, there is always a Pivot there to lend a helping hand. Mentorship from senior engineering leadership is built right into our process - you’ll always be empowered.

Making an investment in each Pivot’s professional development improves the organization as a whole. We encourage you to go to conferences or purchase those pricey O’Reilly books - and we’ll give you a budget each year to do it.

*Your Day*

As cliche as it may sound, every day is completely different from the next. We have a general framework for what our day looks like and the majority of it will be spent with your pair:

9:06 AM - Office-wide stand-up to build office cohesion and start the day off together.

9:10 AM - Team standup - discuss any blockers, choose pairs, maybe even tell a joke.

9:30-12:30 PM - Start pairing, tackle an open GitHub issue and open a pull-request.

12:30-1:30 PM - Lunch! Grab food from one of the many nearby restaurants, run an errand, or join a book club.

1:31-6:00 PM - Get back with your pair and start an acceptance test for a big feature.

While that schedule does look busy, don’t worry - we take ample breaks throughout the day. Take a walk to get boba, read a book on the balcony, play a game of ping pong, or chat with co-workers at the snack bar. Sustainable pace is held in high regard. We know there is a life outside of work, we want you to be able to spend time with family and friends.

*Desired Skills / Experience*

We know from experience that not ticking every box on the skills sections stops many from applying. You should apply regardless of your self-assessment because we want to hear from you.

  • Ability to dive into a large polyglot codebase and contribute as you learn
  • Being okay with the uncomfortable feeling that comes from learning new things
  • Interest in exploring new programming paradigms, languages, and patterns
  • Demonstrable ability to research problems and break them into discrete parts

*Nice to Haves*

  • BA/BS in Computer Science or related field
  • Operations or Systems Administration experience, particularly on UNIX
  • Worked with large Go/Ruby/Rails codebases
  • Used Test Driven Development (TDD) extensively
  • Worked in a pair programming environment
  • Contributed to an open source project
  • On-call experience with production grade systems
  • Has mentored others in a professional setting

Cloud Foundry engineers participate in an on-call rotation with their team to support software they work on.

Pivotal is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer that will consider all qualified applicants, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, gender identity or expression, national origin, genetics, age, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.

Backend Engineer with Resin
London, United Kingdom / Remote$53K - $58K
2 years ago

Job Description

Resin.io provides a software platform that helps developers build, deploy and manage code on connected devices. We brought Docker to embedded GNU/Linux devices in 2013 and have been building our IoT toolkit ever since. We also maintain a variety of successful open source projects including Etcher, Balena, and resinOS, and made contributions to high-exposure projects such as Docker, Electron, and AppImage.

Our technology is open, standards-based, and proven in production across a wide range of scenarios from drones, 3D printers, point-of-sale devices, tidal turbines, skyscrapers and more. Our investors include DFJ, Aspect Ventures, GE, and Ericsson.

Resin is a highly distributed, remote-friendly company with a pretty much flat hierarchy. Our organization is adaptive, getting feedback signals from our users and systems. Right now we organize ourselves by projects, which allow us to build complex features and solve big problems, while staying mutable. As a distributed group, we rely on clear communication and the rule of “assume positive intent” to help us work together across time zones, cultures and first languages. Our base of operations is nominally London, though really we are living all over the world: from Barcelona to Bulgaria, Argentina to Vietnam, and many more.

On being a Backend Engineer at resin.io

We maintain a service infrastructure for IoT devices, and this is where we have quite a bit of our engineering talent. You will be actively working on one or more of these core components, fixing bugs, solving complex technical problems, and implementing user-facing features across the resin.io stack. While resin.io focuses on IoT, the majority of our engineers don’t require embedded programming expertise.

People who are successful engineers are well-rounded generalists and great communicators. They are eager to take responsibility for a project, and are able to make good decisions about the project because they have the context of what’s important.

We don’t require engineers to be already familiar with the technologies we use. We are happy to invest in people that showcase a strong understanding of the challenges of building secure distributed systems.

Responsibilities

  • Actively invest back in our own technology, libraries, and frameworks
  • Understand security best practices and strive to apply them in your work
  • Be highly motivated to produce great code
  • Evaluate customer requirements and other inputs to determine the scope and timing of new functionality
  • Design, architect, and own the execution of your projects
  • Ensure the architecture of our distributed system remains cohesive
  • Collaborate, brainstorm, and coordinate work with other resineers
  • Understand the high-level goals, and thus know how to prioritize your work
  • Challenge orthodoxy when that will help the product evolve
  • Work efficiently with a certain amount of ambiguity in the tasks you’re executing

REQUIREMENTS

Need to have:

  • Desire to make yourself and others more effective. You’d be bothered by an inefficient process
  • Good understanding of software engineering practices and how to apply them
  • Excellent written communication skills, and fluency in English
  • Self-discipline to take on a project and push it to completion without too much management. You also know when to ask for help
  • Strong problem-solving abilities. You know how to split a complex problem into incremental pieces
  • Basic front-end development skills

Nice to have:

  • A sample of your work (URL or attached sample)
  • Contributions to OSS projects (please include a URL)
  • Having worked remotely before
  • Experience with Resin.io as a user
  • Experience with embedded GNU/Linux, anything ranging from personal projects with a Raspberry Pi to commercial or industrial scenarios with custom devices
  • Experience with React, Node.js, Docker, PostgreSQL, or Kubernetes
  • Experience with embedded development and microprocessors
  • Experience with the Electron framework and cross-platform development
  • Experience leading software projects in the open source world

Make sure to let us know if any of these items apply to you!


Perks & Benefits

  • Work with an extremely talented, diverse team
  • Equipment of your choice
  • Remote-friendly
  • Flexible working hours
  • Flexible vacation policy
  • Annual company gathering in an international location - this year, Barcelona in October
