Job Description

Chorus One runs validators on cutting edge Proof of Stake networks such as Cosmos, Solana, Celo, Polkadot and Oasis. We also provide user analytics and a wallet for users at: https://anthem.chorus.one

We are seeking a Platforms Engineer to maintain and scale our staking infrastructure; our network secures millions of dollars of cryptocurrency assets, and security and reliability are key to everything we do. This position is a unique opportunity to work with an experienced team on cutting-edge blockchain networks and financial services around cryptocurrency.

Job Profile

  • Able to work independently. Prior work experience in a medium sized company or as a Platforms / DevOps lead in a startup.
  • Prior experience with a range of diverse DevOps tools. We use Kubernetes, Ansible and Packer.
  • Good knowledge of security as it relates to cloud-based infrastructure.
  • Able to develop tooling, and monitoring solutions where none exist, and able to debug unreliable software - many of the projects we run are of alpha quality. Good knowledge of Golang and/or Rust would be a significant advantage.
  • Bachelors or advanced degree in Computer Science or related subject is a plus, but not strictly needed.

Your Responsibilities

  • Maintain, scale and monitor existing infrastructure, including cloud machines, bare metal servers and a Kubernetes cluster, to allow Chorus One to provide secure and reliable industry-leading Proof-of-Stake validation services.
  • Reason about and improve the security properties of infrastructure. Secure key management, server hardening and intrusion detection are important themes.
  • Institute monitoring and alerting systems for infrastructure. Enable other team members to attend to and troubleshoot problems as they arise.
  • Develop software related to blockchain data extraction or interchain communication, on an as-needed basis.

Our Offer

  • Competitive salary ($70k - 110k) + equity.

  • Remote work.
  • Work on cool tech at intersection of Cryptocurrency, Infosec & DevOps.
  • Quarterly company retreats (last 3 in Kenya, Serbia, and South Korea).
  • Build privacy and user rights conscious decentralised products.
