Job Description

What is the job?

We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated developer to serve as RDX Works' chief advocate in our developer community – our bridge between the RDX Works team and the builders that RDX Works exists to make successful with our technology.

Scrypto is RDX Works' breakthrough programming language for decentralized finance (or DeFi) that will be first released in December 2021. In the coming months we will grow a community of developers that are passionate about Scrypto and the enormous opportunity that DeFi offers them. Our strategy is community focused; our aim is to ensure that every developer that gives Scrypto a try and shows up in our community social channels has a great experience that makes them want to return, learn, build, and ultimately contribute back to that community.

You will start by becoming an expert in the ins and outs of building smart contracts the Scrypto way, and where Scrypto is headed over the coming months.

Armed with this knowledge and a burning fire in your breast to show others the path, you will ensure that no question goes unanswered, that RDX Works developer channels are places of learning and fun, and that the RDX Works development team is never unaware of the day-to-day challenges and desires of Scrypto developers as the tools evolve and grow. You will be expected to be a consistent and respected presence on multiple channels of developer interaction, such as Discord, Telegram, Stack Overflow, Github, and Twitter.

You will also be among the foremost Scrypto builders, actively exploring its potential and limitations in your own code, and creating an estimable body of well-documented example code that will set best practices and convey useful development patterns for budding developers of the next generation of DeFi dApps.

What are we looking for?

  • You are an experienced developer, who has at least dabbled in smart contract development
  • You thrive on people, drawing energy from connecting, engaging, understanding needs, and helping them be successful with whatever excites them
  • You are a natural educator, continually coming up with the most effective ways to convey technical concepts to developers in words and code and accelerating their work
  • You are a crypto native, familiar with the crypto and DeFi ecosystem and why it matters

What do you need?

  • 3+ years of professional development experience.
  • Some participation in an open source project which has at least 4 contributors.
  • Familiarity with multiple programming languages. At least 3 out of Rust, C/C++, Java, Scala, C#, Python, Erlang, and JavaScript.

Nice to haves:

  • Experience with development and deployment of Solidity smart contracts
  • Experience with Rust (on which Scrypto is heavily based)
  • Experience with technical writing / documentation
  • Online community moderation experience
  • Current RDX Works community members are welcomed!

Who are we?

At RDX Works, we're a team of like-minded thinkers who have long been convinced that we're living in the earliest stages of a global financial revolution. This revolution is being fuelled by Decentralized Finance (or DeFi for short), which is enabling an assortment of pioneering developers and entrepreneurs to re-invent and improve almost every financial product that is currently traded and invested in traditional markets, without requiring central authorities or siloed infrastructure. DeFi has captured a great deal of attention and investment in the crypto-aware niche, growing assets under management from $1 billion to $121 billion in less than two years. Impressive as its growth has been, its current market size isn't even a rounding error on the over $300 trillion held in traditional finance. We're focused on what it will take to go from billions to trillions.

RDX Works went back to first principles to come up with the right technical solution—the first layer-one protocol built specifically for mainstream DeFi—and we have already tested out at over 1 million transactions per second. We're keenly aware that the need for an infinitely scalable platform is only one prerequisite among many for mass adoption, and we're also blazing new ground in the areas of purpose-built developer tools, user experiences, and regulatory integration.

We have forged a path deep into the future of what distributed ledger technology is going to look like and we need you to come and be part of the team that is making that happen right now.

In return for working with us, you get to work remotely on your own schedule (or the option to get a local co-working space if preferred), work at the cutting edge of new technology and benefit from an education budget to use to further develop your skills!
