Job Overview

At Anchorage we are building the world’s most advanced digital asset platform for institutions to participate in crypto.

Anchorage Digital was founded in 2017 to advance institutional participation in digital assets. With an emphasis on security and usability, we provide the technology, infrastructure, and tools that make it easy for institutions across the world to participate in crypto. Our team brings together the brightest minds from security, finance, and distributed systems to build the infrastructure of a new financial system. We’re looking to diversify our team with people who are humble, creative, and eager to learn.

We are a remote-first, global team, but provide the option of working in-office in San Francisco, New York City, Indianapolis, Sioux Falls, Porto, and Singapore

You Will:

  • Work across multiple product lines such as Anchorage Digital Trading, Anchorage Financing, and our suite of API integrations.
  • Develop scalable infrastructure that serves a range of clients from bleeding edge investors to major financial institutions and Fortune 50 companies.
  • Build secure, resilient, and global infrastructure from the ground up!
  • Review code across the entire stack and engineering organization while actively participating in product development.
  • Find the right balance between progress (i.e. shipping quickly) and perfection (i.e. measuring twice).
  • Foster an efficient deterministic testing culture, with an emphasis on minimizing tech debt and bureaucracy.
  • Influence architecture/product roadmap – have a seat at the table.
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with everyone.
  • Help scale the team.
  • Work on the front lines of the blockchain/crypto movement and SecOps innovation.
  • Ship code that will impact the global economy.

You may be a fit for this role if:

  • You have real world experience building complex distributed systems.
  • You enjoy building services from scratch and supporting them over a meaningful period of time.
  • You have a genuine interest and pride in code quality and test infrastructure.
  • You prioritize end-user experience and business value over “cool tech.”
  • You developed “computer science fundamentals”, i.e. concurrency, algorithms, and data structures (Formal CS degree NOT required).
  • You self describe as some combination of the following: creative, humble, ambitious, detail oriented, hard working, trustworthy, eager to learn, methodical, action oriented, and tenacious.

Although not a requirement, bonus points if:

  • You have experience with near real-time data processing and/or low latency distributed systems.
  • You feel comfortable diving down the stack and into open source projects to root cause a bug.
  • You have a background in the finance industry.

Tech stack:

  • Backend Tech: Go, C, Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, Vault, GCP, AWS, C++ and GraphQL.
  • Frontend Tech: JavaScript, ReactJS, Flow, CSS Modules, Webpack, Jest, and Cypress.
  • Mobile Tech:  Swift, RxSwift, CocoaPods, and Secure Enclave.
  • Engineering methodologies: Reverse uptime, cryptographically linked data models, tamper resistant ledgers, air gapped infrastructure, secure execution environments, repeatable builds, and infra-as-code.
