Job Description

We seek talented software engineers passionate about building the market data infrastructure that powers the next generation of decentralized finance applications. Your role will encompass developing smart contracts for blockchain applications, creating developer SDKs, enhancing tooling, and monitoring. Additionally, you’ll play a vital role in shaping the product by leveraging your understanding of the DeFi ecosystem to uncover and seize new opportunities.

About Our Team and Your Role:

  • We’re a balanced team; half of us are tech-talented people, while the other half excel in forging partnerships with data providers, developers, and the DeFi community – Communication is key in our network-driven approach.
  • Work remotely: Our team spans the globe from the US and South America to Europe and Asia, with an optional office in Porto, Portugal. Remote work is our norm.
  • English proficiency is essential as it’s our medium for team and external developer communication.
  • Thrive in a startup environment within the dynamic DeFi space. We value adaptable problem solvers eager to address evolving market needs.
  • Write open-source software: Check out our open-source projects on GitHub for a sneak peek into our work.
  • User-centric development: Our success hinges on external developers engaging with our solutions—crafting user-friendly APIs and crystal-clear documentation that aligns with developers’ needs.


Your Responsibilities

  • Engage in the ideation, creation, and upkeep of both on-chain and off-chain Pyth-related projects, including smart contracts, SDKs, and utility programs.
  • Influence our project’s trajectory by working alongside business development and sales teams, shaping the future of finance.
  • Elevate our team by mentoring junior engineers and setting a high standard in software design and documentation.
  • Connect with the developer community, understand their requirements, and craft SDKs, documentation, and tools tailored to them.

Desired Skills and Experience:

  • At least 4 years of software engineering experience, with a bonus for experience in large-scale, safety-critical systems.
  • Smart contract and blockchain development is beneficial but not mandatory. For those without blockchain experience, we like to see backend engineering experience and an understanding of low-level programming languages (such as Rust or C++).
  • A zest for fast-paced, startup-like environments, adapting swiftly to the ever-changing DeFi market.
  • Keenness to learn or experience with Rust, Solidity, Python, and Typescript.
  • Exceptional technical communication skills for diverse interactions within and outside the team.
  • Ability to nurture engineers of varying skill levels.
  • Willingness to manage periodic on-call responsibilities.
