Building interesting projects in the crypto space and beyond

Blockchain Engineer

Note: We’re currently looking for candidates in any timezone! Regardless of where you are, we’d be happy to see you apply, especially if you feel you’re a great fit. This is a remote, full-time position.

Who we are:

Elevenyellow is a multidisciplinary group of people building interesting projects in the crypto space and beyond. From infrastructure, to wallets, to NFT art… our team of 40 has been playing around the space before it was cool. We’re so edgy that we were a 100% remote company in 2013 just in case covid hit ¯_(ツ)_/¯

We didn’t get to this team by adding investors to our cap table - we’re completely bootstrapped, that’s why it took 7 years. This means that we have the long game (40+ years) in our mind and that we share equity/tokens in our projects at a rate that’s completely off-market (for the good).

Who we’re looking for:

We are looking for a talented, motivated blockchain engineer, with provable experience in Solidity and/or Rust. Our team is initiating different projects, from DeFi protocols in Terra to DAOs that will govern art-creating algorithms.

You are a great fit if you have a demonstrated record of:

  • Understanding blockchain and decentralized applications concepts
  • Developing, testing and deploying smart contracts in Solidity
  • Commercial experience with Rust (or Go/C++ and the willingness to learn quickly)
  • Developing high-quality code that is maintainable, performant and accessible
  • Continuously exploring opportunities in DeFi
  • Enjoying working in a team of self-motivated people
  • Taking ownership of your work

What you bring to our engineering team:

  • Deep understanding of blockchain and DeFi protocols
  • Deep understanding of Solidity and/or Rust
  • Creative problem solving skills with analytical mindset
  • Good understanding of continuous integration tools and blockchain management tools

We’re serious about…

  • Product Ownership

We believe that when you build a product, it’s your baby (conveniently enough some of our developers are dads so they share this mentality). And well… babies need nurturing!

We’re not looking for somebody to crap out an MVP, we’re looking for someone who wants to build the next best thing with us.

And this

  • Design

That said, we take pride in our projects. While we launch a lot of them, we like to build in speed and in style. Projects we deem successful require a solid design that’s not just an ugly, out the box template.

  • Speed

Hopefully you like moving QUICKLY. We don’t spend weeks mocking up things. Our developers are quick and talented, meaning we get projects out in the open fast.

We’re not trying to convince you… but we have our perks

  • Work remotely: We’re very experienced in working remotely. Feel free to pick up your laptop and work wherever you want, whenever you want. Just make sure you have a good internet connection and we’re good :)
  • Take vacay: We know what it feels like to work “too much” and our way of work isn’t meant to be stressful. Time off is the remedy to a lot of things, and we encourage you to take time off work. Three weeks is the minimum.
  • Annual Retreats: We do yearly, week-long retreats and we’d love if you joined us (we pay your way, don’t worry). It’s important to meet each other in person and we value time spent with one another (whether that’s on Slack or face-to-face). We’ve met up all over Europe and islands across South East Asia. All in good fun. Last year we went to Gran Canaria, and this year we’ve been to the south of Italy!
  • We’re a laid back bunch: While team retreats sound awesome (and they are), our company ethos is what we value the most. Life is all about enjoyment, and work should be too. We’re all laid back and understand the human side of work and play.

Oh and these things too

  • Competitive Salary (remuneration depends on experience)
  • Health Insurance Coverage (monthly, set budget)
  • Self Improvement Budget (monthly, set budget)
  • Gym Membership (Monthly, set budget)

Now, here’s what you need to do:

  • Send an email to [email protected]
  • Mention why you think you’re a good fit for us
  • Describe your career highlights (highs and lows, best/worst projects, etc)
  • Add your portfolio / things that really define your work
  • No CVs/Linkedin, we don’t know how to read those.

We believe applications should be human and conversational. We’d mostly appreciate if you told us who you were and what you wanted to do in life, both personally and professionally.

Of course, please only disclose what you’re comfortable with. And not to forget! We’re an equal opportunity employer and we encourage everyone to apply. We respect genders, ethnicities, boundaries, friendships, and the human aspect of work.
