Description

Do you live for beautiful APIs? Do you take pride in knowing your API and server work is clean, fast and flexible? Are you the one person to turn to when data needs to be perfectly structured, normalized and redundant? Would you love to have a team of designers turn your API data into compelling customer interactions?


Exodus is looking for a meticulous, obsessive leader to focus on our backend API services. These services deal with everything from collecting historical pricing data to optimizing exchange prices to make sure our customers receive the best rates on trades.


What You Will Do

Design backend REST / GraphQL / gRPC APIs.

Submit pull requests for critical back-end servers coded in Node.js, which talk to Exodus Wallet clients.

Nip bugs in the butt, quickly and safely.

Write loads of tests to ensure code performs as expected.

Work closely with our partner services to ensure long-term API compatibility and stability.

Write monitoring tools to help us make exchanges better, faster, cheaper, and more reliable for our customers.

Open dialogues with our customer support engineers to understand what can be improved about the exchange experience in Exodus, and act on that understanding.

Be readily available in case of a server meltdown.

Who You Are

You have excellent references and a history of trust and established relationships in former careers.

You have a long history and track record of Node.js development that can be demonstrated via Github.

You take initiative and don't wait for direction.

You have a passion for cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and demonstrated passion for solving problems.

You’re familiar with the differences between REST, GraphQL, gRPC APIs and know the tradeoffs of each.

Express, Hapi, Apollo, Restify… you know what these tools do and when to use each.

You have an understanding of relational database concepts and have designed some relational database schemas in the past.

AWS experience a bonus.

You don't care if the platform is Azure or AWS and are willing to work with either and have some experience with at least one.

You are willing to be available regardless of when server issues occur.

Salary and Payment

$70k - $120k paid in BTC
