We're looking for an outstanding software engineer eager to jump into blockchain and learn the wonder of smart-contract developement and Solidity with one of the best teams in the ecosystem.

Join us as we prepare to bring Ethereum to millions more people with our Layer 2 launch this summer. Our L2 wallet will be smooth, secure and have radically lower gas - all while keeping the unique experience Argent is known for.

We're aiming for a breakthrough in the global adoption of crypto.

  • On Layer 1, you'll help us to integrate more Defi protocols to the existing
    Argent Vault
    which combines multisig security with one tap DeFi and protects over $1bn in assets.
  • On Layer 2, you'll help us to bring our unique smart-contract model to key rollups. We're starting on zkSync but will expand to other L2s, such as Optimism, Starkware and Arbitrum afterwards.

For both initiatives you'll take ownership of the entire smart contract development lifecycle, including managing relations with partners and deploying the contracts to our test and production environments. In doing so you’ll code in Solidity day to day and become a leading expert over time.


Requirements

Essential

  • 3+ years as a backend or full-stack engineer
  • Proven expertise in a backend language such as C/C++, Java, Python, Rust, Go, or Javascript (Node.js)
  • Proven curiosity and interest in Solidity; or experience building a Dapp frontend or equivalent Web3 side project.
  • Ability to quickly learn complex technical subjects
  • Writing code that's clean, well organised and easy to review
  • A good understanding of secure coding and security in general

Nice to have

  • Advanced degree in engineering, computer science, physics, or maths
  • Experience with Solidity a plus
  • Good understanding of basic cryptography

Benefits

  • Work remotely - anywhere in Europe (but Europe only). No commute. Lots of flexibility. Plenty of time to care for your kids or cats.
  • Equity in a high growth startup backed by the investors of Spotify and Slack.
  • Autonomy - you decide how to achieve your best work.
  • Trips across Europe - for one week every three months we collaborate in person, explore new solutions and have fun. So far we’ve stayed in Nice, Toulouse, Brussels, Lisbon and Barcelona. We'll resume these when safe following COVID.
  • Equipment - pick the tech setup of your choice.
  • Parental leave - generous package for new parents.
  • Build a new industry - help define the future of the web.
