Your opportunity:
We are looking for engineers that aren’t afraid of big technical challenges (scalable distributed systems, advanced algorithms, complexity of blockchains and cryptocurrency exchanges, lots of data) to join our 10 person team. We have an idea of what you will do, but this is a startup and things will change as we grow. There is significant room for learning, and no room for hiding, politics, or distrust. We anticipate most of your time will be spent on shipping code, multiple times daily. Some of your time will be spent on engaging with users and working cross functionally with design, growth, and product. Almost none of your time will be spent on meetings or internal posturing.

You will:
• Build and lead CoinTracker's engineering function
• Help hire and lead a world class engineering team
• Take end-to-end ownership of top-level engineering objectives
• In the short term, execute on some of the objectives as an individual contributor
• Define and iterate on our technical architecture, stack, engineering processes, and culture
• Scale CoinTracker to millions of users and beyond

We're looking for someone who has:
• Experience building and scaling great products
• Experience leading engineering functions
• Strong CS fundamentals: algorithms, data structures and system design
• Passion for cryptocurrency
• Startup and learning mentality

You won’t enjoy this role if you are:
• Pessimistic about the potential of cryptocurrencies
• Avoidant of taking ownership of a problem that is not your official responsibility
• Too senior to test your own code
• Only willing to code in your two favorite languages
• Not keen on talking with users
