We are looking for engineers to help build the world's last hedge fund

Role overview

Numerai

The models and signals that power the Numerai hedge fund are built by data scientists (users) competing in the numer.ai and signals.numer.ai tournaments respectively.

Users interact with Numerai primarily through our web frontend, where they can download data, upload submissions, and stake cryptocurrency on their models to earn rewards. Experienced users will automate their weekly submission workflows by deploying their models to the cloud and connecting them to our GraphQL API directly. Users can also interact with others in the community using over chat at community.numer.ai and in the forum at forum.numer.ai.

The Stack:

The frontend is written in Javascript with Vue. The backend API is written in Elixir and backed by Postgres and S3 which talks to backend services for sending emails, computing model diagnostics, and creating transactions on Ethereum. Data pipelines built on Python/Airflow connect the tournaments to the hedge fund for weekly trading and internal data sources for daily scoring of submissions. All of these systems are deployed on AWS with Terraform, with a number of auxiliary tools and services for research, observability, and automation.

The Role:

Your role as blockchain engineer is to work on the smart contracts that power the Numerai tournament. You will be working closely with our web and payment engineers to make staking and payouts happen, and our designer and product engineers on implementing new features, and with our security team on securing out blockchain systems and assets.

As a senior engineer, you will be expected to own and lead major projects while actively raising the engineering bar across the entire organization. You will work with other senior engineers to architect robust and performant systems and processes. You will work closely with management to translate business objectives into technical requirements, align projects and goals with key metrics, and grow the engineering team.

Example Projects:

  • Take ownership of the Numerai crypto treasury. Design and build tools and processes to manage it efficiently and securely.
  • Take ownership of existing tournament smart contracts and make upgrades as the tournament rules evolve. Ensure the security of all blockchain systems by working with security engineers and external auditors.
  • Take ownership of existing internal and external protocol metrics and ensure that they are well understood, accurate, and timely. Work with leadership to design new metrics to guide our strategic roadmap.
  • Maintain our Ethereum nodes. Stay up to date with Ethereum news, important EIPs, forks, attacks, and projects.

Requirements:

  • Experience writing smart contracts
  • Experience building decentralized applications
  • Excellent written communication (design docs, specs, documentation, code reviews, post-mortems)
  • Extreme ownership
  • Good general systems knowledge and debugging skills
  • Willing to work extended hours and on weekends if necessary
  • Strong interest in finance, machine learning, and decentralization
  • 10-49
  • San Francisco, CA, US

Numerai manages an institutional grade long/short global equity strategy for the investors in our hedge fund. We transform and regularize financial data into machine learning problems for our global network of data scientists. Our data scientists don't need capital, data, or finance domain knowledge to compete on Numerai. Numerai investors provide the capital, and Numerai embeds our finance domain knowledge into the design of our datasets. Because Numerai data scientists do not know what our data represents, human biases and overfitting are overcome. Numerai does not know what algorithms our data scientists are using because data scientists only upload predictions—their code and intellectual property remains theirs. This trustless relationship between Numerai and our data scientists is facilitated by encryption, and anonymity. Data scientists do not need to tell us who they are, and receive payments in Ethereum.
