Senior Front End Engineer

Engineering /
Full Time /
Sense is a decentralized fixed-income protocol on Ethereum, enabling predictable returns from fixed rates and directional long/short bets on future yields.

The Sense Protocol is leveraged by DeFi users who want more control over their cash flows, and it's used by fixed-income technologists who want to build new yield primitives for DeFi, such as fixed-income tokens, yield tokens, and other custom re-divisions of existing tokens' exposures.

We're working towards a future where Finance is more resilient, accessible, transparent, and fair, empowering generations of individuals with financial freedom.

Join our world-class team, backed by a diverse set of investors and mentors, including Dragonfly, Bain Capital Ventures, Variant, Nascent, Robot, theLAO, CollabCurrency, Jai Bhavnani of Waymont, Noah Zinsmeister of Uniswap, DeFi Dad, Steven Becker of UDHC, Kurt Barry of MakerDAO, and Tom Walton-Pocock.

Together, we'll embark on a mission to build permissionless fixed-income infrastructure.


We're looking for a bold, curious engineer with high standards to help us create interfaces for Sense. As the first frontend hire, you will work directly with the founders (Josh & Kenton) to create a suite of web products, all of which you will be able to influence in creation, design, and execution. You will be responsible for ensuring a consistent, high-quality user experience across trading interfaces, data-heavy analytics pages, documentation portals, and more.
