Blockchain Engineer (Solidity)

Job description

  • We offer visa sponsorship and relocation support. Remote work is also possible.

We’re looking for ambitious folks who want to shake up the events industry while working on cutting edge tech - and have a lot of fun while doing so! GUTS Tickets revolutionises event ticketing while making the industry an honest space. Join our scale-up and boost your career to the next level.

Working at GET Protocol

With our GET Protocol we have been providing an honest ticketing solution on the blockchain since 2015. This open infrastructure layer is used by event organisers worldwide to guarantee entry to music festivals, concerts, sports events and everywhere else a ticket is required for (digital) entry. GET offers all the features needed to build more transparent and user friendly sales and operations. It transforms the shady realm of event ticketing into a honest space. Our GET token is listed on Coinmarketcap, has actual real-world utility (Sorry dog coins!), and can be traded on exchanges like Bittrex and SushiSwap.

We have sold over 1 million tickets via our GUTS Tickets app which allows us to showcase the full range of benefits that our technology enables. GUTS Tickets is our very own blueprint of a modern ticketing company and prevents fraudulent ticket sales by using our GET Protocol. We simultaneously serve existing clients, fund event organisers and design the future of digital ticketing. That means dreaming up entirely new features and services and then implementing them in real life.

As we are in the midst of a rapid scaling period, we are looking for a Senior Blockchain Engineer to be responsible for building and securing the contracts that are already in use for hundreds of thousands of existing ticket NFTs. We're building a suite of DeFi tooling to allow event organisers and event goers greater access to funding and financial products. We're also believers of putting our future in the hands of community governance and already plan to expand our on-chain revenue and control though a DAO.

If you're a great engineer with a lot of best practice and experience but are only starting to get involved in the space and want your first opening, apply anyway. We're a remote-first team and we're open to all locations.

What is the challenge

  • Be keen to participate in discussion about the future of the protocol. We're open to thoughts and suggestions, help us shape our future.
  • Help build out our upcoming DeFi products and smart contracts in Solidity running on the EVM.
  • Define our approach to economics and community tooling.
  • Good writing is a bonus. As we move towards a DAO, we become not only stakeholders to each other but also to the governance system.
  • Contribute to service reliability and engineering practice. To achieve the goal of becoming an infrastructure layer we need to be more stable and reliable than our clients.
  • Be a firm believer in pragmatism and all it entails. We’re practical and we understand that we don’t always have the ability to get things done the way we intend. Help us deliver the longer and more deliberate strategy of continuous improvement.

Job requirements

  • You're comfortable with software design, development, and architecture. This is a senior role so an understanding of software delivery and dependency management is expected.
  • You've got a good feel for best practice within Solidity, understand the demands of working in an adversarial environment, and have a good understanding of the ecosystem and tooling necessary to deploy production smart contracts.
  • You have a keen interest in blockchain technology and belief in decentralisation; building bazaar and not the cathedral.
  • You care about building accessible software and onboarding users to professional DeFi products.
  • Some Web3 front-end experience is a nice to have.

What we offer you
• Competitive salary based on experience
• Part-time or full-time is negotiable
• GET token plan is negotiable
• Generous yearly budget for training, hardware and conferences
• Work-from-home budget for home office equipment
• Collaborate with a committed team of developers and creators from all over the world

• Visa sponsorship and generous relocation bonus

• Fully remote working possibility
