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.

About The Role:

We are searching for an experienced Full-Stack Engineer to join the Growth Products engineering team at Aptos. Our mission is to support and incubate web3 applications on Aptos that could serve people at scale. This is a product-oriented role, where you will build user-facing or developer-facing products on Aptos’s blockchain. You will also advise on infrastructure to foster a thriving ecosystem of developers building apps on Aptos. We are looking for scrappy candidates who can build robust prototypes quickly, care about craft, and share a passion for building great products.

What You'll Be Doing:
  • Own the technical design and implementation of new and innovative web and mobile applications.
  • Build web3-native features on top of our blockchain infrastructure.
  • Write well-tested, reliable code for use by millions of users.
  • Be a strategic thought partner to your product and design counterparts.
  • Collaborate closely with engineers on other teams responsible for other layers of the product infrastructure.
What We're Looking For:
  • At least 5 years of experience as a hands-on software engineer.
  • Extensive experience writing production code on shipped full-stack apps, with a strong foundation in data structures, algorithms, and system design.
  • Experienced with React / React Native.
  • Experienced with traditional backend development.
  • Interest or familiarity in “smart contract” languages such as Move and Solidity.
  • Demonstrated experience driving change within an organization and leading complex technical projects.
  • Entrepreneurial, creative, scrappy, high attention to detail, and interest in craft.
  • Experience building consumer products is a plus.
  • Experience being a founder is a plus.
  • Experience working in Web3 is a plus.
