Software Engineer, Developer Platform
Aptos is a people-first blockchain on a mission to help billions of people achieve universal and fair access to decentralized assets in a safe and scalable way.
Founded by some of the original creators and maintainers that researched, designed, and built the Diem blockchain to serve this purpose, we have dedicated several years toward this mission. We believe the open-source Diem technology we have developed is an important foundation of a safe and scalable web3 world where everyone has more equitable opportunities to grow and access financial assets with lower fees and fewer intermediaries.
Aptos (Ohlone for "The People") encompasses our mission and ethos for why we build.

- Build developer tooling including CLIs and SDKs
- Collaborate with teams across the company and ecosystem to scale their initiatives
- Build seamless development infrastructure including testing and deployment of dApps

- Interest or familiarity with a low-level programming language such as Rust, C/C++
