We created the leading identity and data solution for Web3, and alongside our open source developer community we're approaching the launch of Ceramic Network. We have huge and novel challenges ahead. We need impact-driven, intentional, fast-learning teammates to join us in realizing the vision of a more trusting and connected web.

  • Develop new microservices as needed to support network growth (e.g., social verifications)
  • Upgrade our metrics systems to provide critical insights to the core team and other network participants
  • Make our infrastructure deployments cloud provider agnostic
  • Research and develop safe ways of running validator nodes and provide insight and guidance to the core dev team
  • Assess our current infrastructure and implement security best practices
  • Design and maintain automated testing plans for distributed, peer to peer networks

You're likely a great candidate if you have...

  • Shipped large scale infrastructure used in production applications
  • Experience identify and troubleshoot infrastructure issues and create preventative action plans
  • Familiarity with infrastructure as code solutions (e.g. Terraform), AWS and other cloud providers, and Web3 concepts and how they are different
  • A flexible, anti-fragile, and highly scalable approach to infrastructure design
  • Deep understanding of UNIX systems
  • A knack for quickly learning new problem areas, weighing tradeoffs, and recommending a path forward
  • Bonus points: worked with Go / Rust, significant DevOps experience

The Team

We are a lean, endlessly curious team spread across Europe and the East Coast. We are impact driven, intentional about our role, communications and actions, and intensely focused on building quality tools for our open source community. We believe a better model for managing identity and data online can give power back to users and builders, that this model is key to a growing movement, and that our team is a critical part of making that movement successful.

We pay competitively and fairly across the globe, offer great and flexible benefits, and view everyone on our team as an owner -- both with generous equity grants and lots of agency to help set our direction.
