What We’re Looking For
To grow our engineering team working on The Graph, we are looking for experienced, self-driven Rust engineers interested in working on highly distributed and decentralized server and database systems as well as command-line tools.
The engineering team builds and maintains the software that makes up The Graph's hosted service and The Graph Network. This includes components for building, deploying, indexing and querying blockchain data through subgraphs, for serving paid queries in the network, for automating indexer decisions in the network, as well as a variety of internal and public command line tools.
The Graph is the backbone of decentralized finance (DeFi) and Web3, a new kind of internet based on decentralized protocols. It serves billions of requests from production apps every month. In addition to a great developer and user experience, our focus is developing software that provides fast, deterministic, verifiable, financially incentivized and secure indexing and querying of blockchain data.
The recently launched Graph Network has become one of the major protocols in the space, with hundreds of millions of dollars staked in an open data market.
We are looking for engineers with a background in at least one of the following areas, and encourage applicants to indicate in which of these areas they are most interested in expanding their expertise:
Edge & Node is a globally distributed team. We work hard, but our remote-first team affords a high degree of autonomy and flexibility. Our few scheduled meetings tend to be in the morning, pacific standard time (PST). Most of our team, even at the individual contributor level, has started companies or led large teams and it shows in the way that people manage their own productivity. We’re mission-oriented, and hold one another accountable with results rather than vanity metrics like time spent at your desk. If you need to book a vacation, or make a doctor’s appointment, go for an afternoon run, or even just get some fresh air, we trust you to use your time effectively.
Despite being remote-first, our team is fairly tight-knit and often feels like a family. You can expect quarterly offsites (once Covid permits) in different parts of the world, where we strategize as a team, brainstorm around a whiteboard, go on team outings, have spirited and varied conversations over wine, coffee, or kombucha, and get to know each other on a personal level. We value diversity and bringing your whole self to work, including your weird hobbies, unique life experiences, cultural traditions, obscure music tastes, and whatever else makes you *you*. In addition to offsites, you’ll have the option to travel to conferences and meetups around the world, where you’ll get to know individual teammates on a more personal level and also build relationships with our users and community.
We pay competitive salaries to all team members, based on level of contribution and country of residence, and offer generous health benefits to U.S. based employees.
