Your opportunity

Join our tight-knit early-stage distributed team that thrives on interesting technical challenges and building magical products that improve people's lives.

As an early engineer on the team, you will be responsible for evolving our production and developer infrastructure.

You will
Design, build and maintain the infrastructure that powers CoinTracker
Debug production issues
Make developer experience excellent for CoinTracker engineers
Define and implement the systems, processes, and culture for top-notch production and developer infrastructure
Help interview new engineers

You may enjoy this role if you
Love building and running complex systems
Care deeply about keeping systems efficient, performant, reliable, and healthy

Some of the technical challenges we face are
Lots of data — billions of data points to track transactions and market pair prices
Data structures & algorithms — automated transfer detection, cost basis tracking, tax optimization, and more. Your CS fundamentals finally come in handy
Scalability — some cryptocurrency users, such as algorithmic traders, accumulate millions of transactions per year. CoinTracker needs to work seamlessly for those power crypto traders.
Blockchain — whether it's running our own nodes, implementing xPub address generation and traversal, or parsing smart contracts to seamlessly support decentralized trading, we get our hands dirty with core blockchain technology
Technical complexity — integrating with hundreds of exchanges and blockchains, and supporting thousands of cryptocurrencies means we have to methodically architect our software and build critical monitoring systems to deliver a robust and accurate platform
Product challenges — building a consumer finance product that works flawlessly for our global user base and through our partner integrations with top crypto exchanges, marketplaces and tax-filing software

You don't need to know any or all of these, but be willing to learn

What's it like working at CoinTracker?
We are a fully internationally distributed, tight-knit team.

We have minimal process, and the majority of our time is spent working and collaborating asynchronously through tools like Figma, Github, Google Meet, Linear, Notion, Slack, Zendesk.

We also stay aligned and bonded through weekly sprints, standups, all hands, and socials. We aim to empower every individual on the team with full transparency, ownership, autonomy, and clear objectives.
