Job description

We are building the world's premier Operational Intelligence and Risk Management platform for Blockchain. We strive to develop our systems by observing the best practices of our craft; this means writing testable, performant, easy to maintain and constantly improving code, while enabling our company to iterate our product fast and stay ahead.

As a Software Engineer at Metrika you will be able to contribute, influence and take ownership in significant parts of our systems. Our goal is to build a very high performance platform, capable of analyzing thousands of transactions across multiple blockchain networks in real-time.

If you are a Software Engineer, with a solid understanding of distributed systems, passion for your work and would love to work with a geographically distributed team, join us!

What you will be doing everyday:

  • Implementing new features, maintaining, optimizing and fixing issues (bugs) in our suite of components (agents, software agents, and services) that power our Operational Intelligence and Risk Management platform.
  • Working under a Scrum or Kanban framework and releasing product increments on a continuous basis.
  • Owning your work. This means writing unit tests, ensuring proper containerization, observability/instrumentation and documentation for your code. You will also be expected to work closely with other members of the engineering, analytics and product teams.
  • Understanding, participating and contributing to the company goals, regardless of your role. Metrika is a small company with a very inclusive culture. We are looking for people that share those values with us.

Please note: Our Engineering team is predominantly based in Europe. This position is currently open to those resident and currently able to work in the European Economic Area (EU, Norway, Liechtenstein), Switzerland, the UK as well the eastern United States/Canada (UTC-4/UTC-5 timezone)

Metrika Inc. is an Equal Opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered without regard for race, color, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or religion.

Job requirements

You will need:

  • A bachelor's degree in Computer Science. Masters or higher degrees preferred.
  • Considerable experience in building production-grade, distributed, cloud native, asynchronous/event-based microservices-based or serverless systems (At Metrika we're predominantly using Golang and Python for our services and tools at this time, and we are looking for people that are either very competent with it, but prior experience in other languages, including Java/C#, C/C++, Rust or Scala is also highly valued.)
  • Excellent understanding of TDD, agile development methodology and version control.
  • The ability to function autonomously to solve problems, and deliver working software. Our geographic distribution requires people that can work well on their own.
  • The ability to communicate well with your team, both interactively and asynchronously, and that of being a positive, constructive team member.

You'll probably be a great fit if you have:

  • Expert knowledge of Golang.
  • Experience with and an interest in blockchain systems.
  • Experience with key-value, document, time series or other non-relational databases.
  • Experience with CI/CD.
  • Experience with Docker/Kubernetes or Serverless environments.
  • Experience with Apache Kafka, Apache Pulsar, RabbitMQ or other brokers.
