Company:
This client is one of the largest blockchain development companies in the world building out household name applications across finance, DeFi, NFT’s and general Blockchain SaaS solutions. Most of their employees operate fully remotely and we are looking for staff across a number of disciplines with this top tier client.


Responsibilities:
You will typically spend 50% of your time coding and 50% of your time coaching the other engineers on the scrum team. This includes:
  • Working with a technical architect to design the high level solution

  • Reviewing pull requests, and leveraging your methodology and technical expertise to help your team during focused problem solving sessions

The project team size, scope and your responsibilities will vary from project to project. Some of our projects involve 5 team members for 3 months, others involve 50 team members for 12+ months.
