  • Create independently, or collaborate with the engineering team to write and ship security features
  • Research, document, and implement solutions that will ensure long term success of the Chainlink ecosystem

Our Stack: Golang, Rust, TypeScript, Solidity, Postgres, Terraform, AWS

Job requirements

  • Software engineering background (CS/SE degree or equivalent experience)

  • Proven ability to communicate across roles to drive security mindset across the company
  • Need to have good knowledge of operational security
  • Experience with monitoring and alerting
  • Experience working in an early growth-stage company
