Full time Security Software

Job Description

We believe that no enterprise should have to choose between data security, regulatory compliance, and ROI. 

We’ve made it our mission to help organizations take full advantage of multi-cloud cost-efficiency, resilience, agility, and scale — with full assurance their data is protected, compliant and with IT controls that extend across the cloud. 

We’ve reinvented software-defined object storage by combining the cost and resource efficiency of the object storage approach with exceptionally strong, blockchain-hardened data protection and the capacity to manage data on a petabyte scale. 

We’re growing rapidly, and we couldn’t be more excited! We’re looking for a Junior Blockchain Developer to join our team. 

About the role 

Joining our team means you are team oriented, you possess the ability to wear multiple hats, and you have the ability to think on your feet. We’re building a brand-new team with an initial emphasis on research and rapid prototyping, though we fully expect to launch production software in the very near future. This is an opportunity to join us as an early core team member and help define our product. 

We don’t expect to find someone that is a perfect match to the details below, but here are the typical bullet points that we’re hoping you bring to the table —  

Technical knowledge we’d like you to have: 

  • Technical knowledge of blockchains 
  • An understanding of distributed computing and distributed storage 
  • A knowledge of distributed databases.
  • Familiar with security standards and software security best practices
  • An educational background in computer science, cryptography, or computer security 

Technical skills we’d like you to have: 

  • Hands on experience with blockchain technologies (at home, at school, or at work)
  • Software development experience (we like Java, Go, and C/C++) 
  • Proficient in developing and deploying backend applications.
  • Experience creating web services and RESTful APIs.

Soft skills we’d like you to have:

  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills with all levels of management
  • An ability to multitask, prioritize, and manage time efficiently
  • Keen attention to detail
  • Excellent problem solving skills
  • A can-do attitude :) 

We understand the world isn’t perfect, and we understand this is a lot of bullet points. If after reading this, you feel like you’re a close fit to what we are looking for, keep reading. 

What’s in it for me? 

We’re a small team with the heart of a start-up.  We treat each and every person that joins us as a VIP, and everyone has the opportunity to make a significant impact on the success of our business.  Although we don’t have a go-kart track and beach volleyball pit on our premises, we’re big on providing autonomy, mastery, and purpose, and ensuring that our employees have a strong life-work balance. 

We create awesome technology with awesome technology, our leadership has been around the block a few times and knows what leading a rapid growth tech company is like, and we treat our people like our biggest asset and differentiator; because they are. 

What can I expect when I submit my application? 

Our recruitment partner – Pivot and Edge – will review your application and either schedule a conversation with you or let you know that we’re passing on your candidacy within 5 business days. 

What does the interview process involve? 

The first step is a conversation with Pivot and Edge. They’ll focus on the human side of things and answer any questions you may have. From there, we’ll provide an opportunity for those that exhibit a high potential to be successful in our environment to demonstrate their technical capabilities and then talk shop with some of our engineers and leaders.  Assuming you’re one of our finalists, we’ll be sure to give you a tour of the office and introduce you to some of your future teammates.

We’re not just interviewing you.  

We want to make sure that we’re the right fit for each other, so please feel encouraged to interview us at every step. 

What is the target start date for this role? 

We’re motivated to hire for this role now, though worst case scenario we’d like to have our new teammate onboard by the end of June/early July.

What if I have more questions before I apply? 

No worries at all!  If you have additional questions prior to submitting your application, please feel free to reach out to John Fleischauer at Pivot and Edge.  He accepts all connection requests on LinkedIn and does his best to reply to all messages within 24 hours.
