Braintrust (usebraintrust.com) is a user-controlled talent network, where you keep 100% of what you earn and actually get to own the platform. We've been onboarding some big clients and specifically need a Senior DevOps Engineer for our client.
ABOUT OUR CLIENT:
Our client is a team made up of innovators, self-starters, independent thinkers, and builders that are at the heart of a financial revolution. We go against the grain to change the world. We’re enabling true financial sovereignty to people around the globe by building out the infrastructure and consumer applications surrounding Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and other digital assets. This is a completely non-custodial wallet, making it the most reliable and secure way to hold funds without the need for a bank or third party. Your money is your money.
If you’re a disruptor with a relentless attitude to make a difference, then this company may be your next home. As a financial infrastructure company, our mission is unlikely to ever be complete. To date, this client supports over 3 million users across 171 countries, but this is just the beginning.
Until now, non-custodial applications have been clunky and difficult to use, causing people to give up and use custodial options instead. The main reason for our success is because we combine the intuitiveness that custodial options offer, with the security of a non-custodial, completely peer-to-peer system. We rigorously design, redesign, test, and experiment to ensure our customers have a positive, safe experience.
Our main focus is delivering an enterprise REST API that enables easy access to over 150 cryptocurrency assets. We also dogfood our own product and develop a consumer cryptocurrency wallet on both Android and iOS which are powered by our API.
We are looking to add many more cryptocurrencies as well as dramatically improve the reliability and responsiveness of our globally distributed infrastructure. Some fun things you might choose to work on include:
- Scale infrastructure to multiple data centers
- Hone our automated deployment pipeline
- Optimize database usage
- Improve proactive monitoring & alerting
- Solve challenging problems in the areas of security, blockchain technology and more.
This company is your oyster. The benefit of a company our size is that you can wear many hats. If there is something you’re interested in, don’t hesitate to speak up. You’ll probably get a chance to do it!
We are a small DevOps team and would love a senior engineer to join us! You've deployed a lot of different infrastructure by now and know what it takes to make them run like a greased flywheel.
