At TokenAnalyst we are building the intelligence layer for the blockchain. We are one of the first providers of on-chain data (data that lives on the blockchain).

This requires setting up and running multiple blockchain nodes, gathering information about crypto-assets from disparate sources, and deriving insights from millions of data points.

As the Senior Backend Engineer, we expect you to come in and take charge of our backend infrastructure and hit the ground running. You will drive forward the design and development of our core systems, taking a leadership role in a rapidly growing startup.

What you’ll be doing:

- Develop a low-latency, scalable backend infrastructure fit for "google-level" scale

- Optimize the performance of our data ingestion and processing pipelines

- Develop processes to automate repetitive data gathering and processing tasks

- Make backend architectural decisions (and implement them in production)

- Establish and practice rigor in engineering best-practices (documentation, code reviews, test automation)

- Lead engineering discussions and mentor others on engineering best practices

- Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of blockchain data-learning the ins and outs of the decentralized economy in the process

What we are looking for:

- You have a passion for high-performance code and infrastructure

- You have at least 3 years work experience in backend development (preferable) or as a data engineer

- Advanced degree in a quantitative field

- Familiarity with either Python, NodeJS, or Go

- Experience deploying to and working with Amazon Web Services

- Strong experience with development tooling for a range of languages & frameworks

- You are familiar with big-data technologies (Hadoop, Spark, Kafka etc...)

- You have a deep understanding of system design, data structures, and algorithms.

TokenAnalyst is an early stage company that is a frontrunner in the field of blockchain data processing and analysis. If you want to take on a leadership role in a fast-growing startup in this exciting industry - this is the job for you.
