#1 of 1Tokyo, Japan || Full Stack Engineer || [REMOTE is a possibility]
We are a pre-release startup based and are looking for full-stack engineers that are interested in Go (golang) and Bitcoin. We ambitiously aim to bring Bitcoin to the general public in Japan, and although there has been bad press about Bitcoin, we believe we can make an impact in improving the lives of users of our (soon to be released) service. We strongly believe in testing, continuous integration and code reviews, so you will love the benefits of having well tested code in production and being able to learn (and teach) others from critiquing each others' code. As a startup, we are focused on shipping our product, so you would be expected to be reliable and able to self-manage your own time.
You will be our 2nd engineer hire and work directly with the CTO in getting the service ready for release by early Summer. This will entail helping with the architecture of systems, coding the backend systems, writing client side JS, setting up servers, and keeping everything running.
Our current stack looks like this: Golang, Beanstalkd, PostgreSQL, Salt Stack, Knockout.js, Durandal, Bootstrap
Bonus Skills: - Go and other parts of our stack - Startup experience - Experience using JSON-RPC interface of bitcoin client
- Comfortable with SQL - Familiarity with Linux and the command line - Basic knowledge of Bitcoin - Experience with AWS EC2 - Strong communication skills and working as a reliable team player with a remote team - Fluency in either Japanese or English (both are a plus)
