We’re looking for an experienced frontend engineer who’s excited about enabling true peer-to-peer commerce.
Our mission is to allow buyers and sellers to meet and transact in a completely distributed way (from car, housing, bike, and other rentals to task-based services like freelance engineering, design, marketing and more).
We encourage you to read our product brief to understand what we’re trying to build and why it matters: (originprotocol.com/product-brief)
Origin has a stacked engineering team. At Origin, you will have the chance to work alongside and learn from startup legends like Yu Pan, who was one of the founders of PayPal and the first engineer at YouTube. You will also work closely with our founders (both developers) and other early engineers to architect and build out the Origin platform.
Our work is not only open-source but open-collaboration too. Most of our conversations and engineering meetings are held in public. We use a lot of React and GraphQL at Origin. You will have the opportunity to contribute across multiple projects, including our mobile apps for iOS and Android and our web3 Marketplace DApp.
As an early engineer, you will also be integral in setting both company and engineering culture and processes. You will represent the team at conferences and meetups and help us evangelize the Origin mission and technology.
– 2+ years in software engineering (full-stack preferred)
– Experience with React and GraphQL preferred
– A keen eye for design and desire to make sure your work is pixel-perfect
– Bonus points if have demonstrated open-source leadership or been involved in a major open-source project
– Strong written skills are particularly important as we are a distributed team
How to apply
Origin has an untraditional application process. As an open-source project with over 100 contributors, we hire almost exclusively from our community.
There are no white-board interviews.
Instead, we ask interested candidates to jump into our Discord, join one of our weekly engineering calls, pick an issue from our public project board and send us a pull request. Typically after two or three substantial pull requests, we’ll get in touch with you to talk about next steps (usually a paid contractor role to further evaluate your skills and see if a fulltime role makes sense). At this point, you’ll have a pretty good feel of what it’s like to work with our team and will have been able to demonstrate your technical and communication skills.
## Compensation and benefits
You will be paid a competitive salary, stock options in the company and a cryptocurrency grant of Origin Tokens (OGN). We offer health, dental, and vision insurance.
