ShapeShift is seeking a Software Engineer to design and build features into ShapeShift products. The Software Engineer will be working in a number of code repositories, using some combination of JavaScript (Node.js and React) and Python. Engineers work in small cross-functional teams, and experience a lot of variety, while still having opportunity to develop expertise in areas of interest. The ideal candidate will thrive in a development environment where engineers find creative solutions inside of a standard framework. Standards are constantly iterated on as the crypto-currency environment is in a high state of flux, and development best practices evolve. This position offers a unique opportunity to build the next generation of crypto tools for customer financial sovereignty.

 This is a full-time, exempt position, and reports to the Engineering Manager.

Your desire to make a real impact on an organization and the world grows by the day. The ideal candidate will be open to daily changes in workflow and protocol (and force us to improve workflows). As a start-up in an evolving space, there are new challenges that require new solutions every day.

GOALS OF POSITIONS

  • Work with a small team within the larger organization to build new features
  • Break down work into discrete, independently release-able stories
  • Write clean, maintainable code with unit tests
  • Generate creative coding solutions that follow enterprise-wide coding and architecture standards. Contribute to standards.
  • Track work in engineering-wide workflow (inside of Jira)
  • Produce responsive cross-platform features
  • Proactively adds documentation to help others
  • Understands networking basics and how different software systems communicate
  • Can be counted on for on-call tier-1 issue resolution

JOB SKILLS

  • BS in Computer Science or equivalent experience
  • 3+ years of full stack engineering experience
  • Experience with modern JavaScript-based frameworks. We are particularly looking for React + Node.js
  • Solid intuition for REST API design
  • Understanding of databases
  • Proficiency building web backends in Python and/or Node.js
  • Great design intuition, user empathy, and attention to detail 
  • Experience with source control, preferably Git
  • Understand microservices architecture
  • Working knowledge of Docker containerization
  • Understanding of Internet concepts, protocols, and technologies
  • Passion for innovation. You should be a person who thrives on creating innovative and scalable technology applications without always requiring instruction.
  • Desire to continuously learn, problem-solve and acquire new skills with cutting-edge technology.
  • Desire for success as an individual, as a team, and as a company
  • Most importantly, a strong sense of responsibility, ownership, and character

BONUS ATTRIBUTES 

  • Experience with cryptocurrency and blockchain (address generation, transaction construction, use cases, software daemons, wallet infrastructure and anything related to this evolving field)
  • Any experience or understanding using Ethereum or other Smart Contract based systems (familiarity with Solidity is a big plus)
  • Experience with GraphQL and related client libraries (Apollo + Relay)
  • Familiarity with financial markets and terminology, exchange platforms, and matching engines
  • Adept using Agile process driven development
