Job Description

As a Blockchain Engineer, you would design, implement, deploy, and support blockchain architecture.  Your work would both, directly and indirectly, affect multiple blockchains and their auxiliary systems.  You should be comfortable with the core primitives of blockchain, including distributed systems, fault tolerance, security, cryptography, networking, microeconomics, and performance optimization.  You should be willing to implement your work on any blockchain or on cross-chain platforms such as ChainBridge, Peggy, Rosetta, and Rainbow Bridge.

As a Sifchain team member, you would be responsible for creating technically viable software with a team of senior engineers specializing in DevOps, distributed systems, system architecture, testing, and other related fields. You would be collaborating with some of the most diligent minds in the cryptocurrency industry on product direction, both on the core Sifchain team and among its partners, investors, and advisors. As an early team member, you must feel comfortable working in a fast-paced environment where the solutions aren’t already predefined.

At Sifchain we are in the process of launching an Omnichain Decentralized Exchange. This is a unique technical undertaking that continues to attract interest and excitement from a multitude of well known investors in the blockchain sphere. In fact, the private sale round was oversubscribed within two days of its announcement. Investors recognize that our offering has unique benefits over both CEXes and existing DEXes, and has the potential to fundamentally change the DeFi ecosystem.  The team is led by a blockchain architect from Thorchain, which raised its liquid market cap from $1M to over $150M in two years.

The blockchain engineering team at Sifchain is looking for a talented blockchain engineer to do foundational development work by helping to define and deliver against a coherent product roadmap.
