Hi, we're Ondo Finance. Our mission is to provide institutional-grade, blockchain-enabled investment products and services. We have both a technology arm that develops decentralized finance technology, and an asset management arm that creates and manages tokenized funds. We are the first and current market leader in tokenizing exposure to US Treasuries and are continuously rolling out new tokenized real world assets. We are also focused on incubating protocols that can support both tokenized real-world assets and traditional crypto. We're fully remote, with team members across the U.S.

About the role
Our web team is focused on building web applications and APIs enabling people to access and interact with complex investment products across multiple blockchains. Joining a small team with a wide breadth of responsibilities you will be working across the stack to execute on new features and products while maintaining a high level of excellence in our code quality and delivered solutions. Due to the nature of our blockchain-enabled RWA investment products, you will have the opportunity to help us build at the forefront of web2/web3 (web 2.5) experiences to usher in the next big wave of on-chain capital. This position is Frontend focused so a high expertise in React/Typescript is a must as well as comfortability in working with other parts of the stack.

What we offer:

    • Highly competitive compensation including salary, tokens, and/or equity (according to your preferences) — we're well-funded and believe that great talent deserves great compensation
    • Small, remote-first team — you'll be an early team member helping shape our vision, culture, and engineering practices
    • A+ colleagues — our team includes alumni from Goldman Sachs Digital Assets, DeFi protocols (e.g. Maker, Badger, Balancer), big tech (e.g. SpaceX, Microsoft, Salesforce), private equity funds, hedge funds, and various VC-backed startups
    • Best-in-class investors — we are proud to be backed by leading funds and strategics (incl. Founders Fund, Pantera, GoldenTree, Coinbase, and CoinFund) and angels (incl. founders of AngelList, Anchorage, and Aave)
    • Full benefits (medical, vision, and dental) and flexible vacation policy (PTO)

What your responsibilities will be:

    • Design and implement user-friendly interfaces that provide seamless and secure user experiences for interacting with on and off-chain data.
    • Integrate Web3 libraries and frameworks to enable interaction with blockchain networks, including wallet connections, smart contract interactions, and transaction management.
    • Optimize front-end code for performance, ensuring fast load times and smooth interactions, while considering the unique challenges of blockchain data retrieval and integration.
    • Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including designers, product managers, and blockchain developers, to understand project requirements and translate them into technical specifications.
    • Collaborate with the back-end engineering team to define and build API endpoints and data structures required for front-end functionality, ensuring efficient communication between front-end and back-end components.
    • Implementing external system integrations that support our web applications and operations team.
    • Assist in the evaluation and integration of third-party libraries, tools, and frameworks that can streamline the development process and improve the overall quality of the product.
    • Stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in Web3 and blockchain technologies, and proactively suggest improvements to enhance the user experience and technical architecture.
    • Participate in code reviews and contribute to a culture of ownership, collaboration, and technical excellence

What we are looking for:

    • +/- 3 hours from the PST time zone — typically this means you're located in the Americas
    • At least three years of experience as a software engineer contributing to production code bases in Node.js/React/Javascript (Typescript)
    • At least 1 year of experience developing decentralized applications
    • Ability to work effectively in a dynamic environment with changing needs and requirements
    • Solid fundamental knowledge of web application, API, and web3 development
    • A dedication to continuous learning and a commitment to best practices across the whole technology stack
    • A strong team player with excellent communication skills both written and verbal
    • An engineering generalist who is excited to learn new things and share their knowledge with his/her team
    • Demonstrated interest in crypto — building, investing, yield farming, minting, voting, or whatever excites you in the space
    • Prior experience building crypto-native / web3 projects deployed on an EVM mainnet — especially using React, Node, and JavaScript (TypeScript); experience in DeFi, Solidity, TheGraph, serverless, cloud infrastructure (AWS), testing, or security are a plus
