Origin Protocol’s mission is to enable blockchain-powered commerce.
Our flagship products are Dshop and OUSD. Dshop aims to build a powerful decentralized e-commerce platform to rival Shopify. OUSD is designed to be an upgrade to Tether (USDT). It is the first stablecoin that earns competitive Decentralized Finance (DeFi) yields passively in your wallet.
We’re looking for a senior Solidity engineer to contribute to the development efforts of our smart contracts. The ideal candidate would also have a strong security background.
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 platform is fully open-sourced and built on decentralized technologies (Ethereum, IPFS). Your work will be integral in changing the way that buyers and sellers interact on the blockchain.
As an early engineer, you will also be integral in setting both company and engineering culture and processes. You will help us evangelize the Origin mission and technology.
This is a remote position. We are a fully distributed organization, with team members across the globe.
- 5+ years in software engineering
- A track-record and proven experience as a Solidity engineer
- Deep knowledge of smart contacts security is highly desirable
- Experience in DeFi is a strong plus
- Bonus points for significant contributions to open-source project(s)
- Strong communication skills are particularly important as we are a fully distributed team
How to apply
Origin has an nontraditional application process. As an open-source project with hundreds of contributors, we hire almost exclusively from the open-source community.
There are no white-board interviews. Instead, we ask interested candidates to send us links to their open-source Solidity contributions. Alternatively, share your resume with us (make sure to provide details on your Solidity experience).
We also strongly encourage candidates to join our Discord to say hi and get themselves familiarized with our projects and community. As a bonus point, pick an issue from our public GitHub and send us a Pull-Request! We’ll be there to guide you throughout the process.
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.
