Job Description

Who We Are

Bestow is a digital life insurance company built on full stack technology and AI. In a world in need of greater financial resilience and protection, Bestow democratizes access to smart financial products and powers some of the world’s leading consumer platforms. We are reimagining and rebuilding a 400-year-old, $7 trillion industry to create a brighter future for millions of families. And we’re just getting started.

The Bestow team is a diverse band of first principles thinkers on a mission to do good. We’re fortunate to be backed by leading investors and partners including Valar Ventures, NEA, 8VC and MunichRe.

As a Senior Back End Engineer you will lead development on new features and technical improvements for our products. You should be able to define technical design and implement work independently. You should have prior experience architecting systems. Bestow software engineers are great teammates. You are willing to collaborate with other software engineers, product managers and designers. You are someone that strives to build a premier engineering organization.

Challenges on Which You Can Expect to Work:

  • Building Product Features. We’re a startup with a long product roadmap. You’ll be working with a team to make that roadmap a reality.
  • Develop new product features using Python 3, Go, and PostgreSQL.
  • Resolve issues with previously delivered features.
  • Ensure software is secure, maintainable and extensible.
  • Collaborate with designers, product managers and other engineers.
  • Ensuring a Robust Software Platform. Great software is more than product features. It simultaneously considers non-functional concerns like security, maintainability and extensibility.
  • Fostering Best Practices. We might be small but we’ve got big ambitions. Folks joining the team will be defining our software engineering culture.

A Little About You:

  • Min 4+ years of back end software development experience
  • Professional experience with Python 3; Experience with Flask a plus
  • Professional experience with a relational database like PostgreSQL
  • Experience with strongly typed languages (Golang, Kotlin, Rust, etc)
  • Experience using Docker for local software development
  • Experience designing APIs (Protocol Buffers, RAML, Swagger, OpenAPI, etc)
  • Experience with distributed systems and microservices
  • A champion for Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD)
  • Clear, concise written and verbal communication
  • You thrive in a highly independent work culture and are capable of working autonomously
  • You have initiative and motivation to make things happen
  • You always want to sit next to the person who is smarter than you because you value a culture of mentorship and learning
  • You are egoless, hold yourself accountable and you have a thoughtful approach to adopting new technology
  • You are looking to bring your voice and talent to a mission-driven company in ways that help it to grow and expand its reach.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Senior Golang Backend Developer for Blockchain/FinTech with Herdius
Remote / Berlin, Germany€30k - €100k
7 months 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.
