Tensor is the leading NFT Marketplace on Solana. We’ve done over $1bn in total traded volume, given back over $100m to our community, and serve over 500,000 traders every month.

You’ll be at the ground floor of scaling Tensor for the next 1 million traders and building the most sophisticated trading infrastructure & platform for NFTs in the world.

You will:

  • Ship new products for NFT traders: faster data, more capital efficiency, advanced order types
  • Optimize and scale our data pipelines to handle O(1-10K) transactions/second at peak
  • Own projects end-to-end: from front-end to backend APIs to data pipelines to on-chain smart contracts
  • Work with Solana’s state-of-the-art and fastest-in-crypto virtual machine, and write smart contracts in Rust 🦀

You are:

  • Excited about web3/crypto/NFTs. We really cannot overstate this - you’ll be joining a team of web3 nerds
  • A generalist with 3+ years of experience working on large-scale, data-intensive apps
  • Experienced with React, NodeJS, Postgres, Redis and Docker (if you have experience with other modern stacks that’s totally fine too, as long as you’re a fast learner!)
  • Proficient in at least one low-level language (ideally Rust or Go)

Bonus points for:

  • Experience scaling data-rich consumer products, APIs & trading infrastructure to millions of users and O(terabytes) data
  • Experience building real-time pipelines on AWS (Kinesis, Dynamo, SQS, RDS) and services on Kubernetes
  • Experience optimizing React apps to handle hundreds of renders per minute
  • Experience writing smart contracts (Solidity, Solana, or Move)
  • Good intuition on when to move fast/break things vs when to move carefully

What you’ll get:

  • Generous ownership & stake in the company. We’re looking for owners 🤝
  • A fast-paced, no-BS environment
  • Architect the next generation of trading & financial rails
  • Flexible working hours & hybrid schedule
  • Top-of-the-line M3 Macbook Pro and peripherals

Our stack is Rust (protocol) / TypeScript (back-end & front-end), AWS, Kubernetes and a bunch of distributed data systems (Kafka, RDS/Postgres, ElasticSearch).


We’re remote-first. The founding team is in Toronto, and you’re welcome to join us there, but you don’t have to.

Tensor is an equal opportunity employer.
