Posted on Tuesday, July 27, 2021

Orca is the most user-friendly AMM DEX on Solana. We’re looking for a senior backend engineer to develop smart contracts. As one of the first DeFi apps on Solana, we offer a unique chance to shape the culture of a growing ecosystem.

Never written a smart contract before? No worries! As long as you're comfortable diving into nitty-gritty backend code, we can teach you what you need to know. In this role, you'll be able to learn the art of smart contract engineering directly from our cofounder Yutaro, who has written production smart contracts for widely-used DeFi projects on Ethereum and Solana.

About our team: • A lean team of 6 senior contributors based across multiple timezones • Fully remote and location-agnostic • Passionate about bringing a human touch to DeFi

What you'll do: • Develop Solana smart contracts in Rust that handle millions of dollars in transactions per day • Provide input on Orca's roadmap and contribute to our lively remote culture • Spend most of your (work)day coding... on your schedule!

What you bring • Experience writing secure, precise, and performant backend code • Comfort making high-level technical decisions with minimal oversight • Resonance with Orca’s brand values (professional, principled, and playful 🐳) • Excellent communication skills

Bonus points if you have... • Written Rust before, especially Solana programs • Used Orca for trading and/or liquidity provision • Participated in DeFi, especially the Solana ecosystem • An appreciation for cheesy marine puns

Details of the role • Base salary of 150,000 USDC / year + future ORCA governance tokens, depending on experience
