The Vision  

We are building the first blockchain SDK for web scale decentralized applications -- Axion

Big Problems in Web3 we are solving:

1.) TPS limitations that inhibit the progress of innovative new applications.

2.) Bridge insecurity which restricts cross-chain interoperability.

3.) Building the first high throughput on-chain order book

Axion leverages recent advances in consensus technology to facilitate the production of application specific blockchains capable of exceeding 100,000 transactions per second. This throughput is more than 10x existing solutions and is made possible by recent advances in consensus technology. Moreover, Axion acts as a connectivity hub that enables cross-chain communication through aggregate state proof production.

Lastly, we are building a flagship application specific chain which operates the first order book based decentralized exchange that is capable of high throughput. This will be the first orderbook capable of servicing a decentralized exchange that functions at the scale of leading decentralized competitors.

As a Full Stack Engineer, you will work directly with the founding team to architect and grow the products that expose our blockchain technology. In this role, you will be tasked leading technical designs, implementing, and will bear significant ownership in getting the Axion to mainnet.

What you'll do:

  • Architect efficient and reusable front-end systems that drive complex web applications
  • Identify and resolve performance and scalability issues
  • Integrate graphic designs from visual designers into components
  • Implement feature and user interfaces for our lending market and future products

What we're looking for:

  • Bachelors in computer science, mathematics or other STEM discipline
  • Strong front-end programming skills (JS, React.js) including concepts like asynchronous programming, closures, types, and ES6
  • Experience with component libraries (Material UI) and design-to-code (e.g. Zeplin)
  • Meticulous and detail-oriented, and innately driven to understand issues deeply
  • Self-motivated and highly-productive, with a strong sense of ownership and urgency
  • Able to work collaboratively and productively with others
  • Visually creative with graphic design experience (e.g. Adobe InDesign, Photoshop) is a plus

Our Benefits

Our HQ is currently in New York, NY where our tight-knit team works in person 4 days out of the week.

Benefits include:

  • Health insurance coverage
  • Equipment of your choice
  • Unlimited Vacation time
  • Competitive Salary

About Us

At Algofi, we're building the new financial system. Our work will reduce barriers to entry and promote democracy in the financial system.

Our team started by building the Algofi protocol on the Algorand blockchain. Algofi is a stableswap (e.g. Curve), constant product decentralized exchange (e.g. Uniswap), stablecoin (e.g. MakerDAO's DAI), and a cross collateral lending market (e.g. Aave). The Algofi protocol launched a little over six months ago and now secures over hundred million dollars.

At Algofi we think the future is am multi-chain world. We are now looking to grow the team aggressively in order to scale our efforts across the global blockchain ecosystem. Though we are early, we have secured our support from strong backers like Union Square Ventures, Arrington Capital, Jump Crypto, Coinbase Ventures, and more.
