Senior Protocol Engineer

What is Foundation?

Foundation is a new medium for buying, selling, and trading limited-edition goods and art. Built on the Ethereum blockchain, Foundation claims the power of the stock market and reinvents it for independent artists, designers, and brands across music, fashion, fine art, and emerging media.

For Creators, Foundation opens up dynamic pricing, which means higher earnings from sales. It also allows Creators to monetize engaged followings on social or anywhere else by directly compensating them from trades in secondary markets they couldn’t access until now. For Buyers, Foundation rewards being early on a drop and connects them to Creators emotionally and financially with a shared stake in the success of a product or piece of art.

Our team believes:

  • Crypto should be more human. Good design and clear ideas will make all the difference.

  • Technology should serve people who shape culture—not exploit them.

  • New things need new thinking. And sometimes that’s uncomfortable. 

  • Unknowns are adventures. There are no guarantees at early-stage start-ups—and nothing is more exciting than that.

Responsibilities:

  • Writing robust, secure, upgradeable smart contracts that power the Foundation network. (Ex: enable multiple contract upgrades in a single tx, design economically scalable meta-transactions, explore L2 solutions for Foundation Markets).

  • Create efficient, reliable, and readable middleware APIs for UI layer to interact with deployed contracts.

  • Designing modular and maintainable infrastructure to support off-chain payment flows.

  • Architecting reliable monitoring and alerting pipelines for both smart contracts and off-chain services.

Skills & Experience:

  • Experience with Solidity, React, GraphQL, Postgres.

  • Bonus: experience with Typescript, Ethers.js, Buidler, Graph Protocol.

  • 5+ years experience in a software engineering role.

  • Strong conviction you can move fast and not break things.
