About us:

Volume work with the best partners to make decentralized finance protocols valuable. We solve problems of protocol utility, governance, and growth for the leading DeFi protocols. From our team effort, we are able to drive massive growth of user transactions and the launch of the protocol economy. If a protocol fails to attract user activity, token value falters and innovation will flow away from the network.

Volume delivers software tools and user experiences that increase protocol token utility and community engagement, measured by protocol transaction volume growth. The Volume team’s interests are the protocol interests: Growth of user transactions.

The role:

We are always looking for individuals who desire a high-impact, high-visibility role within a company that is making crypto and decentralized protocols valuable.

As an Engineer on our Engineering team, you will have a chance to work across the full spectrum of our protocol architecture that is built around the Cosmos-SDK, built in Golang. Our software empowers Sommelier validators to secure the Sommelier network which offers financial automation globally. As an early employee, you will be a critical part of our core team and have a significant influence over the direction of the company.

Our Full-stack Developer will work alongside our engineering team and rewrite and update code for our indexer. This role is perfect for someone excited about learning that would like to grow into a leadership role in the future.

Responsibilities:

  • Write new code for the Volume blockchain stack's rust components
  • Ensure code follows the latest coding practices and industry standards
  • Work closely with backend developers to understand and properly use the system APIs
  • Write both unit and integration tests, and develop automation tools for daily tasks
  • Challenge ideas and opinions to avoid pitfalls and inefficient solutions
  • Own off-chain services that maintain on-chain systems on several chains
  • Design and implement microservices in Rust connecting to financial systems and payment networks
  • Write reusable, testable, and efficient code
  • Analyze requirements, and vendor APIs, and translate them into application designs.
  • Implementation of security and data protection systems
  • Build applications according to the design and provide designers with feedback and suggest tradeoffs when required
  • Challenge ideas and opinions to avoid pitfalls and inefficient solutions

Requirements:

  • 6+ years of coding experience, experience with Rust is ideal but experience C++ will suffice as well.
  • Bachelor’s or Master's Degree in Computer Science is required.
  • You have a working understanding of blockchains and smart contracts, and a birds-eye view of the state of L1 tech.
  • You have familiarity with applied cryptography (merkle trees, ecdsa, etc).
  • You have strong opinions on system design and code cleanliness.
  • Experience developing technologically complicated products for untrained end-users
  • You are passionate about blockchain, have used DeFi dApps and believe in the opportunity of decentralization and blockchains to change how the financial world works today
  • You thrive in a startup environment and feel best working in a small, cross-functional team where you can roll up your sleeves and be hands on
  • You have an interest in working in a self organizing environment and bring creativity to start your own initiatives within the Cosmos Stargate SDK
