Aglet today is a digital sneaker collection game, powered by step-counting and an ever expanding catalogue of virtual sneakers. Tomorrow, Aglet will revolutionize how we play games, how we interact with brands, and how the next Virgil Abloh will be discovered.

Aglet is powered by Onlife, a bold company and vision dedicated to inspiring the world to Play Life via a series of gamified overlays of our real, location based, context-rich lives, as we live them. We think we’ve only scratched the surface of evolving our augmented lives - starting with sneakers and streetwear. We believe that “the street” is where the community is - and today, the street is in games. We consider our current app only “gamified.” Our next steps will lead Aglet to provide vastly deeper challenges, storylines, and exhilaration from collection, trading, and creating.

We are a fully remote, creative team distributed around the globe looking for novel ways to bring the metaverse to life.

We're looking for a Principal Software Engineer to join our newly created Platform Engineering team. You will be responsible for using defined practices to materialise the blockchain aspects of the technical vision for the Onlife platform. This is the platform that underpins the Aglet.app, and you will be helping us develop the blockchain mechanisms to allow other games to leverage the platform to provide rewards, transaction capabilities, and full blockchain gaming experiences. You will ensure that the platform capabilities have a delightful developer experience, are easy to maintain, extend, scale to our needs, are highly available, and provide the utmost level of security. 

We are a fully remote, creative team distributed around the globe looking for novel ways to bring the metaverse to life.

WE'RE BIG ON VISION AND VALUES.

Open to Play. Think BIG and weird; Approach problems and ideas with wonder; fearlessly develop and deliver on interesting ideas. 

Get Clear. Understand the game you are playing; Ask for help and direction when you need it; Communicate clearly and take notes.

Get it Right. Freedom and comfort to disagree; Proactively share and show your work; Demonstrate vulnerability by sharing uncertainty and challenges.

Radical Ownership. Don’t wait to be told what to do - own your space and make things happen; Own your mistakes and learn from them; Give meaningful feedback to the person who needs to hear it.

Be Active. Show up and participate; Build a community; Invest in your own physical and mental well-being - when you need a break, take a break.

DIVERSITY MATTERS

We’re building a new platform that gives a voice to underrepresented creatives. To do that, we are building a team that models the type of world we're trying to create, one that is rich in different perspectives and backgrounds. We encourage all applicants to apply particularly if you are from an under-represented community or have followed an unconventional path to get to where you are - we want to hear from you!
