A bit about us:
Unique blockchain assets (“NFTs”) are experiencing a massive surge in popularity. These unique assets allow people to own anything from in-game items to digital art, to music, and financial instruments.
However, they are highly illiquid: transactions take minutes or hours to confirm, and Ethereum can process fewer than 5 NFTs per second for the whole world combined. To solve this problem for ourselves and for others, we have built Immutable X, a next-generation protocol for trading blockchain assets with instant trade confirmation, massive scalability, and no gas fees without compromising user custody.
The goal of Immutable X is to help businesses scale their creation and trading of these unique assets (“NFTs”). As Immutable X grows, we are searching for Senior Backend Engineers who will help us build out this trading and exchange technology to a massive scale with high reliability. You will be responsible for developing and maintaining a world-class NFT trading platform in an exciting new domain filled with new challenges and opportunities for innovation.
As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will have the opportunity to work in the first Layer 2 solution for NFT trading. You will gain domain knowledge of trading, payments and blockchain technologies. This is an exciting opportunity to work in a high-growth startup where your choices will have a big impact on not just internal teams but also our user base and partners.
