About Maple

Our Off-Chain team, like all of out teams are growing and this Backend Engineer role is a big priority for us.

You’d be joining a team of 4, making you the 5th member of the Off-chain team and the first dedicated Backend Engineer. To this point the responsibility of this has fallen with the Team Lead, with the support of the Frontend focused members of the team.

The team isn’t keen of siloing people fully to just Frontend, Backend etc and extremely keen on promoting a “one team building together, utilising each others strongest elements of skills, whilst teaching and learning from each other”. They now need your Backend Engineering skills to compliment this high performing group!


  • Be the primary SME on Backend Engineering issues
  • Attend daily stand ups, then work autonomously to achieve success
  • Be available to support your team throughout your working day, as they will be for you
  • Continuously be finding ways to build a more scalable and higher quality architecture and platform
  • Open to learning new ways of working and delivering


  • Experience architecting components and building distributed systems, APIs, and web applications
  • Solid experience of GraphQL and Typescript is essential
  • Previous experience working on Ethereum from a systems perspective

Really nice if you have it

  • DeFi application experience
  • Basic Solidity understanding (this isn’t a Solidity Engineer role)
  • Hardhat
  • Web 3

Our Stack

  • All: TypeScript, NodeJS, Ethers.js, Hardhat, Docker, Solidity
  • Frontend: React, CSS/LESS
  • Backend: Graph Protocol, GraphQL

Maple is a globally-distributed DeFi startup focused on institutional lending. We recently closed a funding round led by Framework Ventures and Polychain Capital and are poised to launch our first institutional lending pool. Commitments for this have exceeded our target by almost 300%.

Come and join us at the beginning of something big, not just in DeFi but Global Finance as a whole.

Maple is firmly in pole position in this area of the DeFi space and we intend to keep the lead.

What we have achieved so far is the result of an exceptional team. We subscribe to a collaboratively created culture of Personal Ownership, Focused Execution, User Prioritisation, and an Innovative Mindset.

Does an environment like this sound like the place for you? We really want to hear from you!

We look forward to receiving your application and will be in touch after having a chance to review.
