We are seeking a VP of Engineering to join our dedicated, multi-disciplinary team. You will join as we define a unique position in the market. We are working on wrapping tokens with legal blockchain-native legal agreements, and are scaling to capitalise on the recent boom in non-fungible tokens and decentralised finance.
You will collaborate and work with our CTO and act as a peer on architectural decisions.
Monax was one of the earliest blockchain companies. One of the original proponents of permissioned and proof-of-stake blockchains. We have been early innovators in smart contracts and legal automation. We fully believe the time has come for adoption of a digital legal layer.
Monax converts paper to computable agreements that humans and machines can read. No more word documents in email attachments. Our digital agreements can bridge on-chain and off-chain assets. Smart contracts can use our on-chain interfaces to enforce terms.
Your core skills matter more than specific knowledge and you will have an opportunity to change our technical stack. Currently we use: Typescript (front end and API), Go, Solidity, OpenZeppelin, Postgres, Hyperledger Burrow, React, Kubernetes, Helm.
What you will be doing:
You’ll have a high level of autonomy and we want you to use your leadership skills and intellect to excite us. You’ll have the freedom to help us design organizational structure and processes so we can scale. Your skills should augment and compliment our already talented team of engineers.
So, in summary, who do we need? Someone who has:
Nice to have:
We are very keen to see candidates from a range of backgrounds. You may not have worked at a VP level before. What’s more important is that you have the skills and experience we need.
We want someone who can be an individual contributor with demonstrable technical depth. This could be in cryptography, algorithms, computer science, or some other aspect of software engineering. We don’t need an expert in a specific discipline. We’d like people who have scratched beneath the surface to bring added technical depth to the team.
It is important that you are able to engage, and on occasion back yourself in honest and respectful discussions with colleagues. You are able to change your mind about something after consideration. We’d like you to have the ability to change minds too.
We want you to lead, motivate, and empower our engineers to do their best work.
What can we offer you?
