Frontend Tech Lead

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.
