Job Description

A little about us:

Dapper Labs is the company behind CryptoKitties, NBA Top Shot, and the Flow blockchain. Formed in February 2018, Dapper Labs was spun out of Axiom Zen to spread the benefits of decentralization through the power of play, fairness, and true ownership. Notable investors in Dapper Labs include Andreessen Horowitz, Union Square Ventures, Venrock, Google Ventures, Samsung, Coatue, and the founders of Dreamworks, Reddit, Coinbase, Zynga, and AngelList, among others.

Dapper team members are humble and curious entrepreneurs, builders, and tinkerers who share a passion to demystify blockchain technology and tap its potential to create change in the world. Our people are our greatest strength: our diverse crew flourishes in a distributed hierarchy where personal autonomy and professional growth are encouraged. We value our culture above else: regardless of where you came from, what you studied, or who you used to work for, your role here will necessitate both a high level of creativity and strategic thinking on complex issues. Everyone here is a founder and no one fits in a box. We’re all driven by an insatiable thirst for learning and development, and that’s what brings us together.

We’re hiring full-time engineers to join our highly motivated team and help us launch products that showcase and enable the next evolution of consumer applications. We welcome awesome generalists and specialists to apply. Titles or years of experience don't matter to us – impact, authenticity, and values alignment do. We are now a remote-first team but mostly on PST so time zone alignment helps too.

About the role:

Engineering is at the core of what we do at Dapper Labs. As an engineer here you'll be responsible for designing, implementing, shipping, and maintaining software on one of our product or service teams. You will work with your team to set quality standards, participate in code reviews and design discussions to ensure the quality is upheld, and iterate on our processes and approaches to ensure we're constantly improving.

While the majority of your time will be spent implementing solutions, you will also be expected to work with our product and design teams to gather requirements, point out alternative approaches, and ensure that problems are solved quickly and efficiently.

Our ideal candidate has:

  • Familiarity with agile software development methodologies.
  • Familiarity with blockchain (we understand if you don't—we will teach you).
  • Knowledge of REST design principles and interest/knowledge of web frameworks.
  • Knowledge of microservices and event-driven architecture.
  • Up-to-date knowledge of the latest technologies and gets excited about pushing the boundaries of what's possible on the web, mobile, and other emerging platforms.
  • A portfolio of projects to showcase abilities – we're serious about this, and we'll look for sample projects in your application.
