Job Description

Bluefin is a decentralized, orderbook-based exchange for financial products. You will be joining an experienced team at an early stage to develop infrastructure that will help bring millions to DeFi.

About Bluefin

  • We’re building cutting-edge, decentralized exchange infrastructure in our vision to advance derivatives trading, the largest market by trading volume
  • Bluefin is backed by Polychain Capital, Susquehanna, Cumberland DRW, Brevan Howard, Alliance and other leading investors

Our Culture

We are a team of doers that trust each other and value kindness. Our shared passion for learning and relentless drive to make everything better bring us together. We love what we do and are constantly trying new things with a bias to action and healthy debate.

What you will do

  • Join engineering leadership in working with cross functional leads (Product, Design, BD, Sales) to understand the organization's goals and set technical vision and roadmap
  • Rally the engineering team around the future vision and coordinate execution toward it
  • Help architect challenging distributed systems problems around scalability, reliability, high availability for the core trading API, web sockets, datastore services, and new initiatives
  • Ensure your team members are performing at their peak, are growing, and advancing in their careers
  • Contribute to the interview process and design, raise the bar, and help build and retain a world-class engineering team
  • Be a champion of the engineering culture at Bluefin by coaching and mentoring engineers and other managers, participating in architectural reviews, and spearheading initiatives for higher developer productivity and team efficiency. As one of the early managers, you’re setting the culture not just for a team but for Bluefin as a whole

What you will bring

  • 7+ years of software engineering experience and at least 2 years of experience as a software engineering manager, technical lead manager or similar
  • Experience working with many of the following technologies in our stack with no hesitancy to dive in and contribute to challenges as needed: TypeScript, GoLang, Python, Solidity, Rust, data-processing systems (e.g. Kafka, Lambda architecture, ELK), storage solutions (DynamoDB, Postgres, Redis, Zookeeper), SQL database performance tuning, VMs and container technologies (Docker, Kubernetes), infrastructure (AWS, Terraform, Terragrunt)
  • Experience scaling up teams/organizations with a strong shared vision to build a world-class engineering team and nothing less
  • Experience hiring competitive candidates and the ability to craft and convey compelling visions of the future
  • A voracious and intrinsic desire for continuous learning and an equally strong ability for sharing that information clearly and concisely with others
  • You view changes as an opportunity to add structure and order when necessary
  • You believe data is the most powerful tool for informed decision-making
  • You thrive in ambiguity; complex and fuzzy requirements are more common than clearly defined expectations
  • You have strong verbal and written communication skills. You understand the importance of written, transparent communication as a default way to share not only technical but also strategic proposals and decisions

What we offer

  • Competitive salary and equity
  • Employee-friendly equity terms (early exercise, extended exercise)
  • Annual ski trips, events, and travel
  • Company paid co-working space/desk at an office
  • Health, Dental & Vision Insurance in US (stipend if remote)
  • Take as much time off as you need to be productive
  • Parental leave
  • Stipend to set up your home office (4k display, desk, chair etc.)
  • Latest productivity software like Notion and Linear
