We are seeking a curious and motivated engineer who is as passionate as we are about designing and developing decentralized applications, and who is excited by the challenge of building a fully decentralized protocol for health insurance.

This role requires an in-depth understanding of distributed systems, blockchain, and hands-on experience architecting and developing on existing blockchain smart contract platforms. You will work directly with our CTO and experienced team of developers and will be a key part of pragmatically decentralizing our product.

What You Will Be Doing:

+ Participate in design and implementation of our fully decentralized protocol for health insurance. This includes developing, testing and deploying the backend and smart contracts needed to do so.

+ Help architect and implement our token-based incentive model which introduces a new micro-economy for aligning patients, providers and drives towards decentralization.Design and develop any APIs and/or SDKs required to support these services

+ Own monitoring, alarming, analytics, and reporting on all services you build, ensuring high performance and responsiveness

+ Coach and mentor other members of the development team, growing the collective knowledge and expertise of the group

What We’re Looking For:

+ 5+ years of software engineering experience developing highly reliable, scalable services, incorporating REST and microservices patterns

+ Demonstrable, in-depth knowledge and experience with at least one modern language such as Javascript, Python, Ruby, Java, C++

+ Strong comprehension of computer science fundamentals, object-oriented design patterns, data structures, and algorithms

+ Code (provide GitHub link or smart contract addresses) that demonstrates your ability to build or architect distributed systems and/or blockchain code.

+ Curious, continually learning, and eager to share your newfound knowledge with others

+ Comfortable working in a devops/CI environment

What Will Make You Stand Out:

+ Demonstrable strong interest in blockchain, token models and decentralisation and a desire to contribute to thought leadership in the company.

+ The ability to articulate the pros/cons of current blockchain implementations beyond Ethereum. Hands-on experience creating smart contracts, or building on blockchain

+ Interest and some understanding of second layer security solutions such as sMPC, zero-knowledge, etc.

+ Demonstrated leadership abilities in an engineering environment, including raising the bar for operational excellence
