Your opportunity:

Join our tight-knit early-stage distributed team that thrives on interesting technical challenges and building magical products that improve people's lives. As an early Infrastructure Engineer on the team, you will be directly responsible for evolving our production and developer infrastructure.

You will:

  • Design, build and maintain the infrastructure that powers CoinTracker.
  • Debug production issues.
  • Make developer experience excellent for CoinTracker engineers.
  • Define and implement the systems, processes, and culture for top-notch production and developer infrastructure.

You may enjoy this role if you:

  • Love building and running complex systems.
  • Care deeply about keeping systems efficient, performant, reliable, and healthy.
  • Value automating and scaling processes.
  • Love troubleshooting technical problems.
  • Relish the opportunity to improve the developer experience.

We're looking for someone who:

  • Is comfortable debugging problems across the stack.
  • Has experience managing production infrastructure with millions of users.
  • Is a strong systems thinker who can reason through edge cases and failure modes.
  • Is comfortable navigating around a Unix Shell.
  • Works effectively in a remote setting and are able to overlap with our core hours of 9 AM to 12 PM PT.
  • Thrives in an early-stage startup environment with less stability and more ambiguity.
  • Is interested in financial products and/or cryptocurrency.

Our engineering process includes:

  • Code reviews.
  • Continuous integration.
  • Multiple daily automated deployments to production.
  • Automated testing with >85% code coverage.

Some of the technical challenges we face are:

  • Lots of data  — billions of data points to track transactions and market pair prices.
  • Data structures & algorithms  — automated transfer detection, cost basis tracking, tax optimization, and more. Your CS fundamentals finally come in handy!
  • Scalability  — some cryptocurrency users, such as algorithmic traders, accumulate millions of transactions per year. CoinTracker needs to work seamlessly for those power crypto traders.
  • Blockchain  — whether it's running our own nodes, implementing xPub address generation and traversal, or parsing smart contracts to seamlessly support decentralized trading, we get our hands dirty with core blockchain technology.
  • Technical complexity  — integrating with hundreds of exchanges and blockchains, and supporting thousands of cryptocurrencies means we have to methodically architect our software and build critical monitoring systems to deliver a robust and accurate platform.

Our tech stack is:

  • Web: HTML, Javascript, React, CSS, Sass
  • Mobile: React Native, Expo, GraphQL
  • Backend: Python, Flask, GraphQL, Postgres, Redis, Python RQ
  • Infrastructure: Heroku, AWS

We are a fully internationally distributed, tight-knit team. We have minimal process, and the majority of our time is spent working and collaborating asynchronously through tools like Figma, Github, Google Meet, Linear, Notion, Slack, Zendesk. We also stay aligned and bonded through weekly sprints, standups, all hands, and socials. We aim to empower every individual on the team with full transparency, ownership, autonomy, and clear objectives. Learn more about our guiding principles.
