About Hedgehog Markets

Hedgehog Markets is the first prediction market platform on Solana. Hedgehog’s vision to offer the most user-centric prediction market platform permeates all aspects of our development. We chose to build Hedgehog on Solana because of its speed and low network fees. We believe that this provides a strong foundation for our entire user experience. The Hedgehog team is a collective of DeFi power users who obsess over experience and who also believe it’s time for prediction markets to shine — especially prediction markets with more liquidity, more intuitive UX, and more interesting and ubiquitous markets. We are also working on new primitives and market types that are made possible by the speed and low fees of Solana. Hedgehog Markets is currently live on Solana Devnet at

Role and Responsibilities

You will work closely with Hedgehog Markets' founder to help architect and implement the mainnet product on Solana. You will also work closely with a team of talented and experienced engineers.

You will be joining an ambitious team with deep expertise in blockchain protocols, security, and cryptography. There will be a steep learning curve, and we will expect you to stay up-to-date with technological developments. You will also be encouraged to apply your ideas to product designs.

What you will do

  • Write state-of-the-art smart contracts on Solana
  • Ensure that dapps are tested thoroughly via e2e tests
