Senior Software Engineer
New York City, NY
At Offchain Labs, we’re building a platform to unlock the full potential of smart contracts, making them private, affordable, and easy for developers. Our working prototype of Arbitrum runs on top of Ethereum and interoperates with native Ethereum contracts and tokens. We make smart contracts easier to develop at scale, with production level security. Our developer tools do the heavy lifting to add a flexible second layer to decentralized application architecture so our clients can focus on business logic and user experience.
After raising an initial round of $3.7M in seed funding in January 2019, we are ready to hire a few strong Senior Software Engineers that have an interest in working in the blockchain space and have a knack for approaching problems in unconventional ways.
