About the Role

We're looking for someone able to understand both the technical and business impact of a solution, who's able to identify both good and bad architecture and communicate these with key stakeholders and project participants more broadly.

You're passionate about improving financial market infrastructure and see the opportunities and potential in applying Web3 and blockchain solutions to these. You have existing experience in the field, and know how things usually operate, but are not complacent with the status quo.

While you are not expected to be "hands-on" with regards to the daily software development efforts, code doesn't frighten you. Similarly, you might not have professional experience with blockchain software, but you have kept yourself up to date on the latest developments in the field. You're comfortable with advanced topics in this quickly emerging technology.

Requirements

Professional experience in defining solutions that target financial services, ideally with a focus on financial market infrastructure, with an engineering background. Any hands on experience with Web3 and blockchain solutions is beneficial.

  • Define and document best practice solution architecture

  • Communicate and articulate architecture goals into implementation goals

  • Experience from software solutions-focused roles within financial services

  • Experience in software development and agile methodologies

  • Distributed systems experience, API architecture, microservices, software design

  • Professional exposure to the blockchain space is desirable, but can also be based on personal interest/research/hobby projects


Bonus
  • Cloud certificates

  • Project and resource management

  • Team lead experience

Why us?
At Web3 Labs, we pride ourselves on having an awesome culture. Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our staff say:

“We have exposure to books and conferences. It's a cherished culture because blockchain is an area that continues to develop and so we need to keep up with all current developments.”

“It’s an easy going environment - easy to explore solutions independently and easy to speak out and share views. I have autonomy and receive constructive feedback in a positive atmosphere.”

“My job is extremely interesting. I’m surrounded by talented developers who focus on developing clean code and providing good solutions - it’s a true professional culture.”

We want to provide the optimal environment for our staff to work at their very best and understand that we also need to support their own personal needs. That’s why we provide flexibility on working days or hours to fit in with family commitments. We know that life has been pretty challenging for everyone lately and now our company works completely remotely. When life returns ‘normal’ we will meet up in person from time to time and continue to have our amazing team events when possible.

We want our staff to grow their own profile through the company too. We are supportive of OSS work and love it when our staff present at conferences and meetups like Devcon and ConsesSys’ Quorum Webinars. Of course, we sponsor our staff to attend and share their expertise at these events.

As we said above, since COVID-19 we've become a fully remote team. We’re happy to work with people based anywhere in a timezone that overlaps significantly with the UK (Europe, Africa).
We are looking forward to hearing from you!
