Job type: Full-time

Category: Software Dev

Celo is an open platform 
that makes financial tools accessible to anyone with a mobile phone. Our mission is to build a monetary system that creates the conditions of prosperity for all. 

Globally, about one in every three adults do not have a bank account. As a simple consequence of this, they don’t have a straightforward means of receiving or storing value across distance, and therefore are excluded from a large part of the global economy. We believe that to create a truly inclusive financial system, we must start by building an infrastructure to serve those excluded from the current system. Further, we believe that if we are able to do so, the resulting system will be more useful, more resilient, more full-featured, and more accessible for everybody. 

In this role you will have the opportunity to shape and implement the experience for developers contributing across the Celo stack and foster a thriving open source community. Since developers are a key stakeholder, this role is an opportunity to substantially contribute to the success of the Celo open source platform.

Location is negotiable. You'll be associated with and spend time regularly in one of Celo's offices (San Francisco, Berlin, Buenos Aires), but also travel regularly to organize and attend developer and community events, including internationally.

  • We have a strong engineering culture, which values open-source

You will

  • Own the relationship with developers building on top of Celo, from building awareness and driving adoption through to supporting established users 

  • Design and implement the Celo open-source developer experience 

  • Code integrations, example apps, and contribute to SDKs, bugs and enhancements 

  • Write clear documentation and compelling tutorials

  • Develop and deliver content, presentations that resonate with the community 

  • Drive and participate in developer workshops and other external events

  • Help organize, build and train local developer communities and university developer groups

  • Encourage and celebrate diversity in the communities you build 

  • Represent the community externally and internally and influence the product (SDK) team with your insights

  • Work closely with the C Labs product, engineering and community teams 

You have

  • 3+ experience working as a software engineer or engineering-focused developer advocate

  • Ability to distill complex concepts into easy to understand explanations  

  • Strong written and oral communication skills

  • Deep understanding of open-source development and communities

  • An intuition for what makes a good developer experience

  • Published technical articles and/or given technical presentations

  • The ability to travel regularly, including to destinations across the world  

  • Bonus: Experience programming in Solidity

  • Bonus: Passion for blockchain and decentralized technology

    Americans spend more than $5 trillion on restaurants, retail, and services each year. Nearly 90% of those transactions happen in a real-world store. Online, data is king. It powers personalized customer experiences and product recommendations. Offline, it’s still 1999. No data is captured; certainly, none is used to improve merchant decision-making or customer experience. No wonder brick-and-mortar stores are being left behind.

    Thanx is a customer engagement platform -  an integrated solution that enables merchants to interact with their customers. Point solutions are so 2000s. Data on spending, location, time, items/SKUs, and feedback is ingested from multiple sources. Leveraging this data, Thanx provides a complete, longitudinal view of a customer, enabling merchants to engage with customers in a personalized way. Plus, with a closed loop with credit card networks, merchants can,  for once, measure changes in consumer behavior for each marketing dollar thats spent.  

    In a nutshell, Thanx ingests data, provides insights, enables actions to drive growth in the business. As a platform, Thanx is a horizontally-scalable, reliable, high-throughput, low-latency system.

    Thanx is backed by some of the best investors in the world — Sequoia Capital, Icon Ventures, and Andy Rachleff (CEO Wealthfront, cofounder Benchmark Capital), to name a few.

    Thanx Engineering

    Yes, we have an app you can download. But that represents no more than 5% of our codebase. The power of Thanx is massively scalable data pipelines, microservices that power four 9s uptime, intelligent purchase normalization, and matching algorithms  — we don’t show that stuff off publicly.

    Here’s more on who we are:

    • Team: early engineers at AWS, Cloudera, Climate, Zenefits, Okta. Experience from startups and successful product companies like Google, Facebook, Intuit, Disney. This is an elite Eng team, period.
