Working in the DeFi team

We are looking for an Algorithmic Trader to join our team to help us build and maintain the systems that drive our on-chain searching. You will focus both on designing and implementing trading strategies as well as the core microservices and backend infrastructure required by the trading engine.

Our trading is very technologically focused and our traders are akin to programmatic problem solvers. Similar to the ethos of most builders within the space, this role requires you to wear many hats. You will work and contribute across multiple code bases in a variety of languages whilst pushing and exploring the frontiers of the design space within the ecosystem.

We pride ourselves on running a tight knit and collaborative team and so you can expect to work closely with experienced traders and developers who will be teaching and guiding you on how to contribute and improve our systems. Team members are encouraged to cultivate their own narratives, challenge each other and investigate new domains together.
