This is a 100% remote role. UK/EU based only.
We are looking for Senior Software Developers who want to help build the next generation payment API in the cloud.
We’d like to hear from enthusiastic polyglot developers who want to work with the latest technologies, solve interesting problems and be part of a really great team. There are a wide range of problems to tackle, from configuring nginx proxies to writing custom payment routing and handling logic, and we contribute open source back to the community. We believe that the language you write the code in is just how you convey your solution to the computer and the real value is being able to think through a problem.
You will be working on new development projects, focused on best practice across the board, including automation of absolutely everything (Terraform for infrastructure deployments to AWS, CI/CD with contract-based testing and auto-deployment of services within Docker containers, etc.), pair programming and TDD/BDD. Although many of us live around London, we are operating as a remote team, and typically working from home and pair programming.
It’s very much a “best tool for the job” mentality at Form3 and our tech-stack is always evolving but to give you a flavour of what we’re currently working with here are some of the tools we use;
We don’t mind whereabouts you are based as we offer the opportunity for our team to work remotely from anywhere in the UK or EU. In fact, most of our Developers work, utilising screen-share technology and pair-programming to share knowledge across the team. That being said, we also have London and Amsterdam offices, so should you occasionally wish to work from these, you’d be most welcome.
Whilst experience of the above technologies would be nice, it is by no means essential. We are looking to speak with well-rounded software professionals who have a breadth of experience across a variety of programming languages, are passionate about tech and enjoy working collaboratively within a team.
$100k – $150k
We’re looking for someone who has: - At least 5 years of software engineering experience with open source contributions. - Experience developing, releasing, and maintaining production software. - Significant experience writing Golang or the ability and desire to become proficient in new languages. - A strong grasp of computer science fundamentals. - Deep understanding of the theory and implementation of database trees on real file systems. - Experience working in an agile development environment. - The ability to take ownership and see initiatives through. - Worked with and mentored junior engineers. - Exceptional communication skills. - Experience working with distributed teams.
What your primary responsibilities will be: - Improve the IAVL codebase by committing DRY, well tested code. - Work with the Cosmos-SDK team to keep the IAVL tree and its proofs well integrated. - Optimize our implementation of the IAVL tree and its proofs. - Research, design, and implement improvements to the IAVL tree, the proofs, and related protocols. - Help formalize the specification of the IAVL tree and proofs and ensure the implementation adheres to the spec. - Develop simulations for testing the behaviour of the IAVL tree under various loads and read/write strategies. - Develop alternatives to the IAVL tree like the Ethereum Patricia Trie that adhere to the same interfaces. - Mentor junior engineers and support the growth and health of the team. - Review pull requests and provide valuable feedback to members of the team and open source contributors.
What we offer: - The opportunity to build the future of the internet. - An exciting role building open source software. - Flexible work schedule. - At least 4 weeks of paid vacation. - Very competitive salary, including equity.
About our application process: Qualified candidates can expect to go through a 4 step interview process. The first interview will be a call to assess cultural fit and to make sure our goals are aligned.
If we think there is a good fit, you’ll have a call with one of our project managers to learn more about your skills and attitudes toward teamwork. If it’s clear that you’d be a good addition to the team, we’ll ask you to complete a technical task for which you will be compensated.
If your technical task displays a high level of quality and care we will set up a final interview with our CEO or CTO.
The process can take up to 3 weeks.
