The Role

We are looking for a highly capable Blockchain Engineer to design, implement, and distribute a secure blockchain network. You will analyze our blockchain needs, design customized blockchain technologies, and help to launch and maintain our blockchain network. You will also integrate operability with existing blockchain technologies like Ethereum and Flare.

To ensure success in this role, we expect our Blockchain Engineer to possess extensive knowledge of programming languages used for blockchain development, blockchain protocols, experience in cryptography, and the infrastructure necessary to operate a blockchain. We want you to work within our Engineering team to share your expertise in creating secure, fast, and efficient blockchain solutions. You will be working with blockchain technology from the bare-metal server installations through back-end services and front-end websites and developing client applications; all of these will be communicating across the internet.

You will be a part of a company of super-achievers who work together to bring forth the evolution of entertainment. The ideal candidate has prior game dev experience, excellent people skills, business acumen, and an exemplary work ethic. We want someone with experience and passion for web3, cryptocurrency, and NFTs. We would love someone with a deep passion for innovation and a track record for working in a fast-paced, evolving, creative-minded environment.
