Infura is the leading infrastructure platform providing scalable and easy-to-use APIs and cloud solutions for blockchain and decentralized application developers. Infura currently offers APIs for Ethereum, IPFS, and other leading decentralized networks, allowing developers to immediately begin building instead of spending time on architecting and maintaining their own infrastructure.
Infura provides developers instant access to decentralized and blockchain networks without the need to sync or understand complicated peer to peer infrastructure. Similar to how one might access a cloud service to alleviate the friction of owning proprietary compute and storage, Infura lowers the barrier to entry for engineers to begin building.
We believe in a more equitable and decentralized future, and we know developers will be at the forefront of that progress. We want to empower developers to spend their time building, creating, and evolving by providing them with the best and easiest solution to their infrastructure needs.
Some things to know about the Infura team, we are a remote first company, with team members all over the world. We strive to reduce meetings, respect work life balance, promote diversity, and generally be good people. We depend on each other not only to make an amazing product but to be a group that wants to succeed together.
What you’ll do
The Network Enablement team focuses on the scalability of our L1/L2 networks. This includes L2s such as Arbitrum, Polygon, and Optimism as well as other L1 networks such as Near and Avalanche. The focus of the team is to expand across new networks; ensure that the existing networks are well maintained and supported; and implement systems that can be used across networks to solve issues of data consistency, scalability, and performance. You will work closely with platform teams to support and develop features that make operating nodes at scale simple. This role involves aspects of systems operations, backend end engineering, and deep knowledge of how blockchain protocols work.
Would be great if you brought this to the role
You have mastery over Golang or similar systems languages. You also have significant experience building with and operating Kubernetes. This role is DevOps heavy; strong experience with devops roles is strongly preferred. You have solid experience with distributed systems and programming in cloud environments. You have experience with operating /scaling web services and network based systems. You are knowledgeable about cloud based environments and understand things like reverse proxies, object storage, databases (relational, document, and key-value stores), event based systems, blockchain protocols, and infrastructure management.
Don't meet all the requirements? Don't sweat it. We’re passionate about building a diverse team of humans and as such, if you think you've got what it takes for our remote-friendly, energetic start-up environment—apply anyway.
