Backend Engineer


We’re currently building out an incredible engineering team at ARCx, and we’re looking for our next few key people to help us build on-chain reputation. ⚡️

About Us 👻

Our mission is to build the first on-chain reputation protocol, allowing users to unlock benefits through their on-chain behaviour in DeFi. We achieve this through processing large amounts of data that gets scored through algorithms and uploaded to a user’s DeFi Passport. We have two products that we are building out with one product team for each product.

  • DeFi Passport 💳: This is the product that allows users to access benefits on-chain through analysing their behaviour. We also allow 3rd party developers to use our infrastructure to create their own scores. This is a consumer facing team and about crafting a delightful product.
  • ARCUSD 🏦: This is our credit scoring technology coupled with our loan issuance platform that allows users to borrow more through their borrowing behaviour. We focus on this since we believe that credit is the killer application of reputation. This team is primarily an infrastructure team and about robust engineering

You’ll undoubtedly be wearing many hats while working alongside incredibly talented and driven individuals, fully remotely 🌏. We’ve raised over $8m till date from some of the industry’s top investors and are a team of 6 full time members and another 6 contractors/contributors/part-timers.

Values 🌞

Culture is extremely important to us and not just in a corporate-speak way. These are the things we pride ourselves on as a team:

  • We love what we do and don’t view this as another job, rather an extension of their life’s work 🤗
  • We are extremely good at what we do through demonstrated past experience and execution ability 🚀
  • We care about the people around us and want to spend time developing and maintaining good relationships all around 😇

What we’re looking for

We are looking for a driven and motivated backend engineer to join our team. You will have the opportunity to work on all aspects of the product development cycle. If you are someone that enjoys problem-solving, web technologies and looking for an opportunity to learn, grow and lead a team of developers, then this challenge is for you.

We are building and scaling our application using modern tools that our team knows and trusts. This includes producing magic in TypeScript, Node.js, React, GCP, Solidity and much more!

Having familiarity with other common web languages (such as Python or TypeScript) and other parts of our stack (Smart Contracts and Artificial Intelligence) is a great plus. We’re open to you ramping up on our stack over time though. 😇

What you will be doing

  • You’ll brainstorm with the team to conceptualize and build new features for our users.
  • You’ll actively own components and features and define their long-term trajectory while improving on other parts of the system.
  • You’ll mentor other engineers and deeply review code.
  • You’ll enhance engineering standards, tooling, and processes.
  • You’ll design and architect both internal and public-facing product features.
  • You’ll produce high-quality results by leading or contributing heavily to functional projects that have a significant impact on the business.
  • You’ll ensure performance, scalability, availability & security in all aspects of the backend, smart contracts and microservices.

What you should have

  • You’ve been building web applications professionally for 5+ years.
  • You can lead technical architecture discussions and help push technical decisions with your team.
  • You write understandable, testable code striving towards maintainability.
  • You are a strong communicator. You can explain complex technical concepts to designers, support, and other engineers.
  • You understand and appreciate strong computer science fundamentals: data structures, algorithms, programming languages, distributed systems, and information retrieval (artificial intelligence is a bonus).

Technical requirements

  • NodeJS
  • GCP

We look forward to meeting you!
