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 Data Engineer, you will work on multi-faceted data problems to enable CoinTracker to seamlessly track crypto users' portfolio & taxes.

Some projects you may work on:

  • Build semi-automated systems to normalize coin symbols on every crypto exchange into a unified format

  • Synchronize and process billions of price points tracking the price history of every cryptocurrency used

  • Build tools to surface data integrity issues in synchronized balances, transactions, cryptocurrencies and prices

You may enjoy this role if you:

  • Enjoy working with messy/unclean data from multiple sources

  • Can effectively analyze + process data, and store it for use across the system, and run data integrity checks

  • Can build data systems and tools, and are familiar with relational databases

  • Work effectively in a remote setting and are able to overlap with our core hours of 9 AM to 12 PM PT

  • Thrive in an early-stage startup environment with less stability and more ambiguity.

  • Are 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

What's it like working at CoinTracker?

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.
