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.

  • Continually iterate on the security measures taken to ensure the resiliency of the protocol through threat modeling brainstorms and internal security reviews
  • Lead the effort on exploring ambiguous and novel solutions to complex problems that are inherent to the company’s success
  • Review and be the primary author of documentation for the undertakings, services, and code that you produce
  • Be a steward of the engineering culture at Bluefin by coaching and mentoring engineers, participating in code & architectural reviews, and spearheading initiatives for higher developer productivity and team efficiency

What you will bring

  • Storage solutions (Cassandra, Postgres, Redis, Zookeeper)
  • VMs and container technologies (Docker, Kubernetes)
  • You believe data is the most powerful tool for informed decision-making
