Infura is the leading infrastructure platform providing scalable and easy-to-use APIs and cloud solutions for Web3 developers. Infura currently supports Ethereum and IPFS APIs, allowing developers to immediately begin building instead of spending time on architecting and maintaining their own infrastructure.
Infura provides developers instant access to decentralized and blockchain networks without the need to sync or understand complicated peer to peer infrastructure. Similar to how one might access a cloud service to alleviate the friction of owning proprietary compute and storage, Infura lowers the barrier to entry for engineers to begin building.
We believe in a decentralized future powered by Web3, and we know developers will be at the forefront of that progress. We want to empower developers to spend their time building, creating, and evolving by providing them with the best and easiest solution to their infrastructure needs.
Some things to know about the Infura team, we are a remote first company, with team members all over the world. We strive to reduce meetings, respect work life balance, promote diversity, and generally be good people. We depend on each other not only to make an amazing product but to be a group that wants to succeed together.
What you’ll do
Infura delivers blockchain API access at internet scale. Using your in depth knowledge of Ethereum you will build systems that super charge the handling of transactions for our worldwide community of developers. You will work on topics such as transaction simulation, order flow, transaction bundling, and systems that ensure transactions get included into a block quickly and efficiently. We create and run our systems, operations and handling infrastructure will be part of the role.
You will collaborate with an experienced team of senior engineers to build an infrastructure that can service a growing number of developers and projects that are building for the blockchain. The systems you build will be powering the innovation happening in the web3 world.
Would be great if you brought this to the role
- Golang and Rust are the primary languages clients are built in. Having a solid foundation in those languages as they relate to client development is preferred.
- Deep understanding of Ethereum transactions, mempool operations, and account abstraction
- Experience creating ad bidding systems is helpful
- A natural curiosity, thirst for knowledge, and interest in diving into technical problems and open source code
- Our most successful engineers have a constant desire to improve, refine, and take things higher.
- Great communication and proven abilities to work in a team setting (on premises or fully remote).
