At Afriex, our mission is to remove the friction of sending money across borders and to level the economic playing field on a global scale. To achieve this we are building a global payment network: a scalable and usable infrastructure that integrates existing fiat and crypto payment networks, including but not limited to banks, card processors, crypto exchanges, and public blockchains. This particular role will be very focused on the ethereum blockchain and the solidity coding language.

This is a remote role and open to candidates from all regions. 

You might be a great fit for the role of Blockchain engineer if…

  • You have experience working on blockchain technologies: In this role you will research, experiment, invent new products generally related to blockchain and automation space. Curiosity and fearlessness are key ingredients. In short, you must be able to take on new technical challenges without much supervision.
  • You hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production systems: You will design, build and maintain APIs, user-facing experiences, services, and systems. You will engineer money-movement infrastructure, data pipelines, banking systems, and more. You will leverage the best of Afriex’s stack and build from the ground up when needed.
  • You thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts: Implementing a production-ready financial platform is difficult interdisciplinary work. We’re seeking someone who’s up to the challenge. You should not be afraid to ask a lot of questions: you should know how to notice when you’re confused and say so when you are. At the same time, you should have the drive and the organizational skills to take charge of your learning. We’ll work together to strike a healthy balance between collaboration and independence.
  • You have strong skills for asynchronous communication and remote work: Work at Afriex has always been asynchronous and fully remote, and will continue to be so after the COVID-19 pandemic’s travel restrictions are over. We’re looking for an empathetic person who doesn’t mind collaborating asynchronously, with the excellent verbal and written communication skills necessary to thrive in that environment. After it is safe to travel, we plan to bring the team together in person approximately once per quarter (but we won’t be doing that until it is safe).
