Senior Distributed Systems / Networking Engineer / Architect

Published date: 2021/03/24
  • Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
We have three systems that need performance optimization and scalability:
- NBA Top Shot: digital asset creation, marketplace trading, integration with mobile game
- Dapper Wallet: payments, identity, fraud protection, KYC/AML
- Flow blockchain: distributed systems, networking, latency
 
Most of our backend systems are in Go, frontends in React. We are open to awesome engineers across a variety of specialties but in particular would love to talk to distributed networking experts, folks who have developed custom networking solutions for reliable, low-latency message transmission over unreliable connections.
 
The right people for this role know why HTTP/2.0 is such a big deal, and could implement something even better given a specific constraint set. 
 
We believe in an open digital future: one where people own the assets they pay for and have full transparency into the software they're using. We believe users should have the choice to leave apps without leaving the underlying network, and that the users and developers that constitute a network should benefit directly from the value they're helping create. Crypto, or blockchain, is the technology that enables this future. Blockchains are public computers that anyone can access, everyone can trust, and no-one can block or take down. Currencies and collectibles are only scratching the surface of what's possible.
 
Titles or years of experience don't matter to us – impact, authenticity, and values alignment do. We are now a remote-first team but mostly on PST so time zone alignment helps too :)
 
Our ideal candidate:
  • Quickly gains proficiency when exposed to unfamiliar technical patterns, systems, or languages
  • Is able to unblock colleagues when they are faced with technical challenges
  • Is a strong communicator who can collaborate well with other non-technical functions (e.g. Product & Design)
  • Has the courage to try out new tools, fail fast, and dive into unknowns to solve new and challenging problems
Bonus points if you have the following:
  • Familiar with our commonly used technology choices (Golang, Node, Javascript)
  • Developed decentralized applications, infrastructure, or interacting with blockchains
  • Understand the deployment process, and is comfortable with docker, containers, and kubernetes
  • Familiar with event driven architectures, Kafka, and comfortable with eventual consistency
  • Have a strong understanding of application and API security
  • Have expertise in payments
A little about us:
 
Dapper Labs is the world’s first blockchain entertainment company. We are the creators of industry leading experiences including CryptoKitties and NBA Top Shot, as well as Dapper Wallet: the simplest way to manage your assets and use the blockchain. In addition, we are the developers behind Flow: a new decentralized blockchain and cryptocurrency developed from the ground up for scalability and ease of use.
 
Dapper Labs' mission is to make the world a more open, empowering, and enjoyable place through consumer adoption of decentralized technologies. We have raised over $50M from leading VCs including Fred Wilson (USV), Chris Dixon (Andreessen Horowitz) and David Pakman (Venrock) as well as Samsung and Google Ventures. We also have incredible angel investors including top athletes and artists as well as the founders of Dreamworks, Electronic Arts, Zynga, Reddit, AngelList, and Coinbase, among others.
