Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Today’s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky – supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we’re rebuilding it. 

As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Novi, Bank of America, and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower today’s financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.

 

Our Listed Settlement Engineering team is looking for a Lead Software Engineer to join our growing team. The team is launching a new settlement service for US Stocks and will soon apply the same technologies to settle other types of assets! We take pride in continuous innovation, high performance, effective mentoring/coaching, multi-disciplinary collaboration and the authentic application of lean/agile methods. 

As a Lead Software Engineer, you’ll get to:

  • Design and implement high quality software from concept through to launch – taking ownership of design, coding, testing and deployment of key proprietary software components of our tokenized commodities platforms
  • Apply engineering best-practices including unit and integration testing, source code version control, agile planning/estimation
  • Resolve ambiguity, analyzing complex requirements and breaking down features and initiatives into tactical tasks
  • Navigate the trade-offs among MVP vs Enterprise-Grade, Time-to-market and in other relevant dimensions 
  • Search for the truth in product conceptualization and development, ensuring designs and implementations are fully aligned with the company mission and product goals 
  • Work with a modern tech stack including technologies like Kotlin, Docker, and Kafka
  • Collaborate closely other engineering teams, internal stakeholders, and clients
  • Team management experience required
  • Build a clearing agency
  • Take on ownership of technical domains in a company that is growing in size and scope
  • Immerse yourself in blockchain technology, cryptocurrency for enterprises and investors, our regulation-first approach, and more!

Your experience should include:

  • 4+ years of software development experience, including at least one of the following: Golang, Kotlin, Rust, Java, C++
  • 4+ years of experience designing, implementing, and maintaining distributed systems 
  • A degree in computer science or equivalent experience
  • 2+ years of team management experience 

You might already have:

  • Mastery of core engineering concepts including data structures, design best practices, run-time optimizations, and algorithmic complexity 
  • Functional programming experience
  • Solid understanding of concepts like load balancing, HA/failover, ingress, inter-service communications in a microservices style cluster, idempotence, ACID, guaranteed delivery, etc.
  • Familiarity with digital-native online web application architectures and infrastructures, including clustering (Kubernetes), containerizing (Docker), message queuing (Kafka), etc. 
  • A drive to learn new technologies, innovate and discover better ways to solve engineering challenges
