We are building a decentralized protocol that connects these market data providers to DeFi applications. It’s a market that connects these two types of participants, with various incentives to encourage participation on both sides.
However, it turns out that building a decentralized protocol requires lots of web development! Our most prominent website is pyth.network which shows off our price feeds, but there’s more. We need a website that allows end-users to interact with the protocol, a website for developer documentation, and various dashboards and monitoring tools. These websites are the public face of our protocol, and they’re absolutely essential to our success.
We’re looking for frontend engineers who can help us build and maintain these various websites. The primary focus of this job is frontend development; however, since we are a small team, the job will require pitching in on other tasks (such as backend development) to unblock the frontend work. Good candidates will have a strong sense of design and demonstrated experience building attractive, usable web properties.
About Us and the Job
We are a small team. About half the team is technical; the other half manages relationships with data providers, developers, and the broader community. (Building a network requires talking to people!)
We are mostly remote. Team members live across the world, in the US, Europe, and Asia. We do have offices in some locations (Porto, Chicago, London, Amsterdam, Singapore) for those who prefer in-office work.
Our team communicates with each other and external developers in English. Strong spoken and written English skills are required.
We operate like a startup in the rapidly-growing and changing DeFi ecosystem. In order to be successful, we must adapt to meet the current needs of the market. Good candidates will help our organization adapt; they are flexible problem solvers who are willing and able to jump on whatever the occasion demands.
Most of our software development is open source. You can look at our github repositories to understand what we typically work on.
We offer a competitive salary and generous benefits package. Furthermore, where applicable, employees may be eligible for token allocations as part of Pyth Network’s employee incentive program.
What You’ll Do:
Design, build and maintain frontend applications for Pyth Network, including the pyth.network website and internal-facing tools.
Work with designers to develop a distinctive look and feel for Pyth Network web properties.
Ensure that Pyth Network websites are usable, responsive and accessible.
Assist with backend development as necessary to power frontend applications.
Skills You’ll Need:
Strong software engineering skills. Blockchain or web3 experience is not required; we expect that engineers will be able to learn these skills on the job.
Strong design sense, as demonstrated by a record of building attractive and usable websites.
Ability to work in a startup-like fast-paced environment to meet the demands of a rapidly-changing market.
