The Codefi team is composed of multiple decentralised product teams across all verticals distributed across Europe and US and working mostly remotely.

What you'll get to work on

What excites you

  • Products with real impact: Your work will touch millions of end users, the best applications in DeFi, and major financial institutions
  • Interactive applications built on modern front-end frameworks like React
  • Data visualization and a fantastic data set to work on
  • High-performance JavaScript SDKs that can be dropped into third-party applications
  • Digging through finance's complex challenges-and reimagining the experience completely

What excites us
  • 5+ years of experience building web applications
  • Background in computer science, software engineering, or another related field
  • Persistent problem solvers with a strong track record of building interesting projects
  • Deep understanding of (and passion for) JavaScript, React, state management, scalability and performance, HTML, CSS, browsers, stylesheets/styled components as well as React native and mobile devices
  • Ability to architecture and structure a frontend application elegantly, maximise re-usability of components and ensure long-term maintainability and sustainability and leadership in driving best practises in frontend development
  • Strong testing practises
  • Passion for web projects, backed up by an online presence (e.g., GitHub, Codepen, personal sites)
  • UI instincts, but not necessarily the ability to create comps from scratch

Bonus points for
  • Experience in Typescript is a plus
  • Experience in blockchain and building Dapps is a plus
  • A background in startups is a plus

Don't check all of the boxes? 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 to create a world-class infrastructure and tools function in our chaotic-but-fun, decentralised, remote-friendly, start-up environment-apply anyway. While we have a pretty good idea of what we need, we're ready for you to challenge our thinking on who needs to be in this role.
