Role overview

Opportunity

We have built the Digital Asset Modelling language (DAML), which is the centerpiece of our distributed ledger technology. DAML is a contract language that consists of a strongly-typed purely functional core extended with domain specific constructs to express the flow of rights and obligations underlying today’s multi-party business processes. Application Developers using DAML and our distributed ledger technology are supported by the DAML SDK. It provides a type-safe integration of DAML with existing technology like Java, Scala, XML and SQL, and contains DAML Studio, which provides a modern IDE experience to develop, test, and analyse DAML programs.

Working on the Language Engineering team with Digital Asset involves partnering with people around the world (we have centers in New York, Zurich and Sydney), working with exciting new technology, where many of the answers haven’t yet been figured out, producing solutions for clients, such as replacing the settlement and clearing platform of the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), and making sure the end result has the quality required for robust usage. It’s challenging work, but the impact could be huge.

  • Working on our Haskell and Scala code bases, writing code (primarily Haskell for this role).
  • Developing and improving the DAML language and related tooling.
  • Coming up with ideas on how to make things better, both for us and for our users.
  • Following a collaborative approach that factors, embraces, and insists upon diverse perspectives. We are a smallish team, so everyone matters, and all opinions are valuable.

  • Writes good, clean, effective code.
  • Existing compiler development experience is useful, if it’s with GHC then even better.

Location

New York is the most populous city in the US with more than 8 million inhabitants. A lot of immigrants from over 180 countries live in the City. Travelers are usually attracted to its cosmopolitanism and energy. New York consists of five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Staten Island. New York is also well-known for its cultural heritage Empire State Building, Central Park and Statue of Liberty. The City is a center for fashion, media, culture, research and a booming tech scene.

The tech scene in New York has changed a lot in recent years. A lot of the initial excitement has worn off and settled into a stable trend of successful businesses. In both 2014 and 2015, a New York City tech company went public with a valuation of over $1 billion. It is now #2 startup ecosystem in the world, with startups raising $11.5 billion in venture capital in 2017. NYC is also the HQ of choice for Spotify, Consensys and WeWork.
