Who is Recruiting from Scratch:

Recruiting from Scratch is a premier talent firm that focuses on placing the best product managers, software, and hardware talent at innovative companies. Our team is 100% remote and we work with teams across the United States to help them hire. We work with companies funded by the best investors including Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Ventures, Tiger Global Management, A16Z, Accel, DFJ, and more.

If you are a fit, the team will reach out to you about this role or any others that may be a fit for our clients.

About Our Client:

Our client is the world's first blockchain entertainment company. They are the creators of industry-leading experiences including CryptoKitties and NBA Top Shot. They are also the original developers behind Flow, a new decentralized blockchain designed from the ground up for scalability and ease of use.

Our client’s mission is to make the world a more accessible and enjoyable place through consumer adoption of decentralized technologies.

Our client has raised over $600M from leading and notable investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Coatue, Union Square Ventures, Venrock, Google Ventures (GV), Samsung, and the founders of Dreamworks, Reddit, Coinbase, Zynga, and AngelList, among others. Our client's current studio partners include the NBA and NBPA, the NFL-PA, Ubisoft, Warner Music, Turner, Dr. Seuss, Genies, and the UFC, as well as 100+ others.

About this Role:

Our client is searching for a passionate staff software engineer to lead open-source development across the Flow developer suite — a collection of software libraries, APIs, and developer tools used by thousands of Flow developers on a daily basis.

The ideal candidate not only has a passion for technical design but is also excited about fostering a diverse open-source community and collaborating to make blockchain development more accessible to developers of any background.

About the Flow Developer Experience team:

The Flow Developer Experience team was born in mid 2020, shortly before the launch of the Flow blockchain network. The goal has always been to make blockchain development simple and accessible. Since the start, they've worked shoulder-to-shoulder with Flow’s developer community to identify pain points and design solutions that have taken the form of client libraries, IDE integrations, and cross-platform authentication protocols.

Their work is language agnostic and requires us to cross all layers of a developer’s software stack. Regardless of what they're building, we always strive to meet developers where they are — whether that place is a Swift iOS codebase or a data processing pipeline written in Go.

What you’ll accomplish with our team:

  • Continuously improve Flow’s core developer experience by identifying and removing points of friction.
  • Drive innovation in our space; Flow is a new platform and we are actively exploring new ways to build blockchain applications.
  • Collaborate with community members and facilitate external contributions to Flow’s repositories.
  • Lead the engineering team throughout the process of gathering developer feedback, designing solutions, shipping new software and maintaining live projects.
  • Become a reliable mentor for other engineers and help us build a culture where curious engineers thrive.

A little about you:

  • You are able to work with engineers, designers, product managers, and others leaders to turn our product and technical vision into executable tasks.
  • You have experience providing technical leadership for an engineering team.
  • You are excited about owning entire lifecycle of our developer tools, from defining the roadmap, proposing designs, to implementation and continuous iteration.
  • You have experience building modern backend systems as well as frontend client applications for web or mobile.
  • In addition to your existing experience, you are also motivated to learn new technologies and excited to step outside of your comfort zone.
  • You are a strong problem solver and are comfortable removing blockers in an ambiguous environment.
  • You are a great communicator and can collaborate effectively, not only within the Flow organization but also across our open-source communities.

Our client's team members are humble and curious entrepreneurs, builders, and tinkerers who share a passion to demystify blockchain technology and tap its potential to create change in the world. Our client's people are their greatest strength: their diverse crew flourishes in a distributed hierarchy where personal autonomy and professional growth are encouraged. They value their culture above else: regardless of where you came from, what you studied, or who you used to work for, your role here will necessitate both a high level of creativity and strategic thinking on complex issues. Everyone here is a founder, and no one fits in a box. Everyone on the team is driven by an insatiable thirst for learning and development, and that’s what brings them together.

Benefits: PTO, Healthcare, and more!
