Our client is a new cryptocurrency that takes no shortcuts on privacy and usability. Privacy isn’t just important, it’s essential to crypto’s success. Their vision is to become a shielded layer for many more assets, even ones on different chains, and provide a platform for true digital cash.

  • Incentivized testnet (see Figma)
  • Incentivized testnet video walkthrough
  • Client's wallet (see Figma)
  • Node dashboard
  • Mining software front end
  • .. and many other projects

Your other responsibilities will include:

  • Build, document and maintain tests
  • Communicate and document architectural designs and requirements
  • Write high quality, well-tested code to meet the needs of your customers

What we are looking for

Below are just some examples of what your background may look like—go ahead and apply even if your experience is a little different.

  • Written production-level code in React and TypeScript
  • Web and/or Electron application development
  • 3+ years of experience

Nice to haves

  • You have experience with blockchains (e.g. Bitcoin, Ethereum and other implementations)
  • Passionate about privacy and privacy preserving tools
Benefits: PTO, Health Benefits, and More!
Base Salary Range: $130,000 to $200,000
