BitGo is looking for a Software Engineer who will join our team in the Bengaluru office in India. This role requires overlap with Eastern Time 3 days a week (4 days for the first 3 months) from 7-9 pm IST.

Our Team

We are the Velocity team, and we are champions for software engineering teams at BitGo. Our mission is to empower them to easily create applications, services, and libraries. We help them focus on innovation by reducing the complexity of building and operating software. We shepherd and evolve the development experience at BitGo.

Developer experience runs in our DNA and influences every facet of our work. Our team provides a Node.js platform that enables engineers to easily develop and deploy code that meets BitGo’s availability, observability, and reliability needs. 

Our technologies are used by hundreds of engineers. We believe in delivering developer happiness throughout the software development experience. We define our success by our ability to accelerate productivity across BitGo engineering.

This role is focused on elevating the developer experience for our engineering teams using Node.js and TypeScript. The surface area is broad and includes library and framework development, development tooling, production diagnostics and debugging, operations, and developer engagement and developer support.

The team anchors on the human-facing elements of technology. These elements are applied in our day-to-day work across the software development lifecycle. Code is a small slice of this team's impact.

Skills & Experience

We are looking for teammates who share and practice our values: open communication, client-first, collaboration and a high level of craftsmanship. 

About this role

  • Address complex architectural problems with simple, intuitive designs
  • Coordinate with stakeholders in the US and other global locations. This potentially involves taking calls in the PST/ EST timezone to keep in sync with your geographically distributed team.

Excelling In This Role

  • You build and maintain strong relationships across stakeholder groups
  • You create clarity and drive alignment across stakeholder groups on technical and non-technical initiatives
  • You are a curious and proactive learner that seeks to minimize assumptions and seeks to deeply understand before writing code or taking action
