About the role

About Us

Notabene is building a platform that enables crypto companies and their users to perform regulatory compliant transactions in a privacy-preserving way. We are mainly focused on solving the new "Travel Rule" regulation, which requires crypto companies share customer data with every blockchain transaction they make.
We build very fast and agile. We are following the "Shape Up" methodology with a 3 week dev cycle + 1 week cool-down. The decision on what to build next is based on our customer needs, but the implementation details are left to development team to decide.

We already have paying customers who are eager to integrate with our platform, and we work closely with them to ensure they have the best possible experience. They integrate with our platform mainly through our API. We also have a front-end dashboard that allows compliance officers to review what is happening in the system.

About the role

We are hiring a backend / devops engineer that will help us build faster and more securely. We have customers in different jurisdictions around the world, so the candidate will also help architect and deploy our platform in different regions. We work mainly with AWS as a cloud provider, but in the future we will use other providers too. For backend development, we use Typescript, Docker and Lambda functions. For storage, we use PostgreSQL.

We are a team with seasoned developers who have worked together before and have more than 20 years of experience. We are a fully remote team, but most of our developers are based in Chile so we are looking for someone with a compatible timezone.

Core Requirements

  • Experience building backend web services using several languages and frameworks (Typescript/Node.js/Express, Bash)
  • Worked with Docker and CI/CD flows
  • A strong understanding of the following AWS services: ECS, Lambda, RDS, KMS, CloudFormation, S3, SNS, SES.
  • A strong foundation in Object Oriented Programming principles and fluency in at least one Object Oriented language
  • Comfortable with relational databases and SQL (PostgreSQL)
  • A mindset for long-term solutions
  • Curiosity and passion to constantly learn new things
  • Ownership and Accountability. We have a flexible working culture, and expect team members to effectively manage their own time and resources.

Bonus Points

  • Managed a large scale monolith server
  • Experience with GraphQL
  • Experience with blockchain and cryptocurrencies in general
  • Experience building resilient, scalable services
  • A history of contributing to our community through code, documentation, mentoring, teaching, speaking, or organizing
  • Enjoys helping development teams grow
