At Sifchain we are in the process of launching an Omnichain Decentralized Exchange. This is a unique technical undertaking that continues to attract interest and excitement from a multitude of well known investors in the blockchain sphere. In fact, the private sale round was oversubscribed within two days of its announcement. Investors recognize that our offering has unique benefits over both CEXes and existing DEXes, and has the potential to fundamentally change the DeFi ecosystem. The team is led by a blockchain architect from Thorchain, which raised its liquid market cap from $1M to over $150M in two years.
The Sifnode team at Sifchain is looking for a talented Cosmos SDK engineer to do foundational blockchain development work by helping to define and deliver against a coherent product roadmap.
As a Cosmos SDK Engineer you would design, implement, deploy, and support blockchain architecture. Your work would both directly and indirectly affect multiple blockchains and their auxiliary systems. You should be comfortable with the core primitives of Cosmos SDK, including application development, Cosmos standard modules, baseapp configuration, module development, managing application state, genesis state management, as well as knowledge of Tendermint and the core primitives of blockchain: distributed systems, fault tolerance, security, cryptography, networking, microeconomics, and performance optimization.
Youd work to enhance Sifchains core node application, optimize validators reliability, security, and availability while ensuring they interface elegantly with external blockchains. Youd help architect low latency, real-time microservices that support data relay from one validator to each other, or to external API services where users can monitor the network health and other telemetric data.
As a Sifchain team member, you would be responsible for creating technically viable software with a team of senior engineers specializing in devops, distributed systems, system architecture, testing, and other related fields. You would be collaborating with some of the most diligent minds in the cryptocurrency industry on product direction, both on the core Sifchain team and among its partners, investors, and advisors. As an early team member, you must feel comfortable working in a fast-paced environment where the solutions arent already predefined.
Prior experience with Cosmo SDK and/or Tendermint is strongly preferred. Prior experience with blockchain projects is helpful but we are primarily interested in capacity to grow into the role. You should have prior experience in developing high-quality backend architecture and some passing knowledge of how such architecture principles should apply to blockchains. You should be willing to learn and extend the technical architecture of entirely new blockchain protocols.
We are looking for individuals who are passionate about being at the forefront of a new technological paradigm and can lead the design and development of scalable applications.
