Software Engineer Technical Lead | 1780-555 Hastings Street West, Vancouver, BC | On-site Only

Who we are:

We are Symetria, a centralized crypto-to-crypto wallet & exchange provider that uses Personal Blockchains (our tech) to form private blockchains between us and each of our users. What this does is provide immutable proof for every action taken on our site, enabling us to offer the fairness of a decentralized process while maintaining the speed and privacy of a centralized exchange.

We’re a funded startup, nearing the initial launch of our MVP.

Where we are:

We have a clean codebase relying on Microsoft technologies. We’ve been using C# 7.3 to build out .NET Standard 2.0 libraries to support an ASP.NET Core 2.0 website and some other back-end services hosted on Azure or in Docker containers. Of course, our web front-end is HTML/CSS/Javascript, and we’re relatively lightweight in terms of framework dependencies.

We have a beautiful and intuitive user experience created by our incredibly talented in-house design director.

Throughout development, we’ve come up with so many fantastic ideas for features and future plans, and we need to build out the right team to get great things done.

What we need:

We need someone to study where we’re at, where we’re going, how we do things and why we do them – and then pick up from there. As our Tech Lead you’ll be empowered to build out your own team and responsible for managing them to meet our goals. We’ve developed the codebase, but we’re not married to it, so if you have better ideas, we’re all ears.

We envision you growing to own and oversee the entire tech stack and moving into a Director level role as we grow. You’ll set out standards as you see fit and lead your team of developers to get things done according to your standards. If our founder contributes code too, it’s under the standards you’ve laid out. We trust you.
Who you are:
You have a passion to drive, execute and innovate and have the ability to juggle many projects and responsibilities. You are entrepreneurial and self-driven, able to adapt in a fast-paced environment. You are focused on the big picture and are exceptional at pushing scalable, production-ready software.
