As a backend engineer, you will design and build platforms, APIs, and services that are configurable and scalable around the globe. You’ll dictate the client's roadmap and set the standard for clean, readable, and secure APIs backed by a comprehensive test suite. You will spearhead many functions with the client, with the opportunity to both work on infrastructure/platform systems, as well as produce direct user-facing business impact. You'll be working with a sophisticated and high-throughput distributed system, where you'll focus on architecting clean, intuitive, scalable, and seamless APIs + abstractions for developers across the globe.
You do not need to have any blockchain, web3/crypto, or DeFi experience to work in this role — our client upholds a culture of collaborative coaching and learning.
