Javascript Microservices Developer

Citizen Hex
Our Vision

In 2014, Vitalik Buterin announced Ethereum to a standing ovation at the Miami Bitcoin conference. Ethereum elevates Bitcoin’s idea of a distributed ledger into something much more profound: a distributed world computer. Our mission is to facilitate token liquidity so interacting with programmable money is as frictionless and low cost as possible.

The Role

You’ll be a member of an elite distributed proprietary market-making firm and work on cutting edge technology that will significantly impact the Ethereum ecosystem.

You’ll spend time working on different Node.js microservices, contribute to architecture and planning discussions, and take ownership of writing efficient well-tested code that will be deployed into a production environment where large amounts of value are at stake.

The Opportunity

As a key contributor at one of the top market-making firms in the digital currency space, you’ll have a front-row seat to the blockchain revolution.  Your programming abilities will be pushed to new limits and you’ll develop a significant depth of knowledge around risk-taking and the mechanics of financial-markets and cryptocurrency.  You’ll have an opportunity to grow with the firm and make a significant impact on the development of our business and the Ethereum platform as a whole.
