Backend Developer

Role overview

Generally, we are looking for candidates who are interested in the crypto space. We are looking for full-time commitments. You’ll be working on our WingRiders project, which is a top contender to be the best DEX on Cardano. We released a live version in April 2022. Expect a highly dynamic environment aiming to outperform our fierce competition. As a battle seasoned team, with years of experience, we are always looking for top-tier developers.

DEX is a platform to exchange tokens on the blockchain without a central entity. There are already DEXes on other blockchains, but Cardano has only recently released support for smart contracts. This brings a unique opportunity for us to be one of the major players on Cardano.

The smart contracts are written in Plutus/Plutarch (Haskell). They define the constraints and conditions under which actors can interact with the exchange. For the off-chain tooling and frontend, we are using Node.js services and React with Typescript. Some unique challenges include keeping close attention to the security and scalability of the DEX to allow a large number of concurrent swaps within the constraints of the Cardano blockchain.

Are you up to getting into what the job is about and how you could become one of WingRiders? Let’s read more:
