The start-up is a non-custodial, institutional grade, staking as a service provider. The business operates validators across a wide range of Proof-of-Stake protocols and allows institutional clients to delegate their assets using their preferred custodians in order to collect staking rewards. It charges a commission on the staking rewards for operating the validators and providing analytics and reporting.
The business' differentiation is based on:
- Institutional grade security and compliance (e.g. permissioned validators)
- Superior transparency and analytics, including dashboard and reporting
- Processes designed with institutional workflow in mind
As a DevOps Engineer, you will help build and maintain validators on Polygon / Solana / Avalanche / Near / Elrond / Polkadot / Algorand / Cosmos and other chains. You are ready to apply best practices for monitoring, observability, security, and infrastructure automation to the task of improving and expanding the multi-cloud hybrid platform used by our growing set of deployments.
We are looking for DevOps Engineers that have development and operational experience deploying, debugging, tuning, and maintaining large-scale Web deployments, high-performance, low-latency distributed applications, and container-based applications and microservices.

- Extensive cloud experience and familiarity with configuring, scaling, tuning and monitoring the range of services (AWS/GCP/Azure)
- Experience producing operational and design documentation for the things you build, and writing post-mortem docs after troubleshooting service issues.
- Experience with continuous integration and continuous delivery tools, like Jenkins, GitHub Actions, etc.
- Any blockchain experience
Nice to have:
- Experience in software development and infrastructure development is a plus.
- Previous experience with deployment, running and maintaining Polygon / Solana / Avalanche / Near / Elrond / Polkadot / Algorand / Cosmos validators/nodes
