Job Description

What is BlockFi?

BlockFi’s mission is to provide liquidity, transparency and efficiency to digital financial markets by creating products that meet the needs of consumers and corporations across the globe. We build bridges between traditional finance and digital markets that enable growth for all participants.

We’re a team of builders and strivers, proud to champion financial inclusivity and offer economic opportunities around the globe. We provide the same inclusivity to our team members. BlockFi is a place where diversity is celebrated, individuality is recognized, and every single team member is valued. We are changing the status quo to be the first financial company that people love, and we rely on our people to make it happen! 

BlockFi is looking for a Front End Engineer to join our growing team! This job posting is for a remote role affiliated with our European-based team.

We are looking for frontend engineers to join our rapidly growing product delivery team. At BlockFi, we are focused on providing financial products - like interest bearing accounts and low-cost credit products - to the blockchain ecosystem.

About the Role:
We're building out the products and services that powers our business, and, as part of this, working on delivering rich, innovative, and dynamic experiences to our users. Our stack is largely React on the frontend, so yeah, you really need to know your stuff there, with a deep and strategic knowledge of front-end tools and technologies. You've definitely built out complex componentized applications, both by yourself, and as part of a larger team.  

Your Mission:
The product teams at BlockFi encompass UX, UI, Design, and Engineering in a seamless cohesive whole. As part of that product team, you will

  • Work closely with the Design Team to bring our product vision to life.
  • Own the entire lifecycle for the components that you build, with these components ranging from features through products.
  • Write code that - a year from now - you'll be able to look at and *not* wonder what on earth you were thinking.
  • Promote Reliability across all aspects of the system, and use the "Continuous Testing" part of CI/CD/CT to its fullest to help get there.

Above all, you should enjoy the journey. Our engineers are creative, technical, smart, and genuinely like each other. They enjoy the work they do, and so should you!

Why BlockFi?

BlockFi has experienced incredible growth since our launch in August 2017. Our client base has grown to more than 225,000 (and counting), and the company now boasts more than $15 billion in assets on our platform. We recently completed a Series D funding round placing the company's valuation at $3 billion, and our team now has more than 500 people worldwide. We have established ourselves as a crypto market leader, and as we expand our product suite and geographic footprint, we expect our addressable market to grow exponentially.

BlockFi's leadership team has decades of experience in the traditional financial services and banking world, and we take a conservative approach to regulation that will position us well for sustainable long-term growth and expansion.

Our team is comprised of highly motivated professionals from diverse backgrounds. We are aiming to become the leading lender in crypto and are poised to redefine the global financial ecosystem for the better. In addition:

  • BlockFi is one of the first companies to ever offer crypto-backed loans and the only company whose founding team has an institutional understanding of the debt capital markets and regulatory landscape in the U.S.
