Subgraph Developer

Other in Anywhere, US - Remote OK - The Graph Foundation

The Graph is an indexing protocol for querying networks like Ethereum and IPFS. Anyone can build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, making data easily accessible. Web3 is a new stack for a radically better internet. All data is stored and processed on open networks with verifiable integrity. The Graph makes querying this data fast, reliable, and secure. By combining web3 protocols, developers can build dapps with powerful new features for solving the world's greatest challenges.

The Graph Foundation is committed to supporting the long-term health and growth of The Graph ecosystem. We help interested parties engage with the community.

We are looking for experienced and highly motivated Subgraph Developers that want to help partners within The Graph ecosystem build and maintain subgraphs for their respective projects. When opportunities come available, we will help make the introduction. Subgraph developers should have experience building subgraphs in some capacity whether it be for personal or professional projects.

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • Developing, testing, deploying, publishing and maintaining high quality subgraphs
  • Defining what data will be indexed from the blockchain and how it will be stored and made available via the API layer
  • Advocating for The Graph

What We Expect:

  • General understanding of blockchain technology, especially Ethereum/EVM based ones, Solidity, etc.
  • Knowledge in AssemblyScript/TypeScript/GraphQL
  • Previous experience building subgraphs

About the Graph:

The Graph is the indexing and query layer of web3. The Graph Network’s self service experience for developers launched in July 2021. Developers build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, that applications can query using GraphQL. The Graph supports indexing data from multiple different networks including Ethereum, NEAR, Arbitrium, Optimism, Polygon, Avalanche, Celo, Fantom, Moonbeam, IPFS, and PoA with more networks coming soon. To date, tens-of-thousands of subgraphs have been deployed on the hosted service, and now subgraphs can be deployed directly on the network. Over 28,000 developers have built subgraphs for applications such as Uniswap, Synthetix, KnownOrigin, Art Blocks, Balancer, Livepeer, DAOstack, Audius, Decentraland, and many others.

If you are a developer building an application or web3 application, you can use subgraphs for indexing and querying data from blockchains. The Graph allows applications to efficiently and performantly present data in a UI and allows other developers to use your subgraph too! You can deploy a subgraph to the network using the newly launched Subgraph Studio or query existing subgraphs that are in the Graph Explorer. The Graph would love to welcome you to be Indexers, Curators and/or Delegators on The Graph’s mainnet. Join The Graph community by introducing yourself in The Graph Discord for technical discussions, join The Graph’s Telegram chat, and follow The Graph on Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Reddit, and Medium! The Graph’s developers and members of the community are always eager to chat with you, and The Graph ecosystem has a growing community of developers who support each other.

The Graph Foundation oversees The Graph Network. The Graph Foundation is overseen by the Technical Council. Edge & Node, StreamingFast, Figment, Semiotic and The Guild are five of the many organizations within The Graph ecosystem.
