Come help build a spot-market for hashrate, not dissimilar to a compute-power version of Henry Hub

Role overview

Luxor specializes in the physical delivery of hashrate (compute power). Over the past two and a half years we have been acting as a buyer of hashrate, purchasing, and mining over $40mm worth. We currently have 15,000 machines that sell us their hashrate daily.


Company Background

We fundamentally believe that compute power itself is a commodity and we want to build out traditional marketplaces and derivates for it.

We are building a spot-market for hashrate, not dissimilar to a compute-power version of Henry Hub. After this is completed we will begin building incredibly powerful and interesting derivative products on the value of hashrate.

You will develop the technical design for either cloud or on-premises solutions. Also, influence designs across R&D using original research and advanced analysis. You’ll design solutions for business critical and highly complex engineering projects by applying extensive domain expertise in performance testing. You’ll provide oversight of code and design reviews, and ensure features are delivered to meet business and quality requirements.

Our teams own mission-critical aspects of a rapidly growing, globally distributed platform (eg: Hashrate Marketplace and 15 unique mining pools), in the cloud, and, as such, you will have an incredible amount of impact on the current state and future direction of our product, with visibility throughout the organization and a significant opportunity to take ownership.


Data Engineer

We are looking for a Data Engineer to join our small collaborative, and fast-moving team to work on one of the most rewarding projects in the crypto mining industry.


Basic Requirements

  • Experience building data pipelines/ETL and familiarity with design principles.
  • Expert in PostgreSQL and PL/pgSQL development and administration of large databases with focus on performance and production support on native cloud deployments.
  • Experience with scalability solutions and multi-region replication and failover solutions.
  • Experience with data warehouse technologies (Spark, Hadoop, BigQuery, ElasticSearch, etc).
  • Bachelor’s degree (or its foreign degree equivalent) in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related technical discipline or equivalent experience.
  • Deep understanding of programming and experience with at least one programming language.
  • English language proficiency.


Preferred Requirements

  • 4+ years of working experience in relevant data field.
  • Knowledge of blockchain technology / mining pool industry.
  • Experience with agile development methodology.
  • Experience delivering and owning web-scale data systems in production


The Ideal Candidate

  • Passionate about cryptocurrency and public-blockchain technologies.
  • Has an interest in creating an entirely new market with Hashrate (compute power) as a commodity.
  • Has an interest in thinking and evolving the architecture of our software to make it robust and maintainable.
  • Enjoys writing code and pushing boundaries of what has been done so far.
  • Brings fun to the team but can also go own the rabbit hole to push quality code on schedule.


Responsibilities

  • Build scalable and reliable data pipelines that provide accurate data feeds from internal and external systems.
  • Govern scalable & performant cloud-deployed production relational and non-relational databases.
  • Collaborate on architecture definitions, always thinking of solutions that are scalable and secure.
  • Drive data systems to be as near real-time as possible.
  • Design, document, automate and execute test plans to ensure the quality of the datasets.
  • Participate in the process of generating and analyzing features.


Luxor Technologies

    Luxor specializes in the physical delivery of hashrate (compute power). Over the past three years we have been acting as a buyer of hashrate, purchasing, and mining over $45mm worth. We currently have 35,000 machines that sell us their hashrate daily.
