Job Description

We are hiring a Senior Backend Engineer to help us solve blockchain scaling, build a more decentralized Internet, and lead the way to a future where the people and communities who hold up the Internet can finally be free again.


It is not easy to change the Internet. It takes a world-class team with world-class talent. The right person for this is not just a great engineer – you must make miracles happen.

  • Take full responsibility. Our job doesn’t stop at the code. We do it all – from talking to users to deciding long-term strategy – and we expect you to do it too.
  • Don’t wait for work. We are a small team with a lot to accomplish. It’s your job to figure out how to be most effective and valuable. 
  • Bias towards action. We measure ourselves by what we ship. Talk doesn’t change things, action does.
  • Failure is not an option. We think of problems before they happen and solve them ahead of time.
  • Work independently. We rely on each other, and we trust you will do whatever it takes to get the job done.


  • Build blockchain products and infrastructure for millions of users
  • Solve blockchain scaling at Reddit-scale, including designing and implementing layer-2 solutions
  • Develop smart contracts and integrate them with Reddit services 
  • Contribute meaningfully to team strategy
  • Communicate across the organization and work effectively throughout the Reddit stack 


  • You have built backend services for large-scale distributed systems (ideally 5+ years experience). We work primarily in Go, with some Python, and our stack runs on Kubernetes, GRPC, and Postgres.
  • You have made blockchain apps, preferably with Ethereum and Solidity.
  • You have experience deploying critical blockchain infrastructure into production.
  • You have a deep understanding of decentralized technologies and the entire web stack.
  • You have exceptional communication skills. We are a mostly remote team and depend on clear communication to function.
  • You are incredibly competent and do not require hand-holding. Experience leading a startup or a major project is a big plus.
