Who We Are:

E-Horizon is building derivative infrastructure to enable Ethereum to transform into the Global Internet Bond via delta-neutral positions on stETH to create the first crypto-native, yield bearing stablecoin: eUSD.

We believe creating a stablecoin which is not reliant on existing banking infrastructure is the single most important product category in crypto today.

eUSD will form the first part of a broader ecosystem of products we are building including money markets, undercollateralized credit accounts and an internal futures exchange.

Our core values focus on individuals with internal drive, curiosity, and determination. We allow you the freedom to work anywhere in the world.

We are looking for team members to join the core founding team with equity and tokens offered for all positions.

  • A genuine passion for building technology and pushing forward innovation in DeFi.
  • An individual who is curious and always looking to learn new concepts on the overlap between frontier technology and financial concepts.
  • You can write and speak fluent English.


  • The focus of the role would be to work on the internal trading and arbitrage platform with a focus on centralized venues that spans real time low latency data capture, order entry and execution on dozens of exchanges, robust connectivity and built-in automated monitoring.
  • Primary responsibility will be securely expanding and scaling up our trading platform, mainly using C++ and Python.
  • Design and build automated delta-neutral derivative strategies within smart contracts which will implement customized algorithms to efficiently capture the most efficient arbitrage opportunities across DeFi and centralized derivative venues.
  • Working with various custody and exchange providers to build secure connectivity to various venues via our smart contracts.
  • Creative license to push the boundaries of DeFi derivative infrastructure design.
  • Collaborate with the team and cross-functional partners on all aspects of product development including smart contract back-end engineers and front-end internal risk monitoring.
  • Mentor team members to refine their technical and architectural skills.


  • At least 2 years working within an engineering role at a trading entity or exchange.
  • Strong C++ and Python skills are required and will be tested.
  • Experience managing cloud infrastructure and risk monitoring applications.
  • Understanding of networking, CPU and memory model and assembly language.
