Backend Engineer

Do you want to help developers and users reclaim the web with a brand new technology to directly manage our information and identities online?
3Box Labs is building a more open, safe and collaborative web. We created the leading identity and data solution for Web3, and alongside our open source developer community we’re approaching the launch of Ceramic Network. We have huge and novel challenges ahead. We need impact-driven, intentional, fast-learning teammates to join us in realizing the vision of a more trusting and connected web.
The Role
3Box Labs is looking for a Web3 Infrastructure Engineer to own and maintain our Ceramic infrastructure components as well as design, deploy and run validator nodes.
You will get to…
  • Research and develop safe ways of running validator nodes, providing insight and guidance to the core dev team
  • Automate and streamline all of our infrastructure deployments
  • Set up high quality monitoring and alert systems that allows us to catch all* issues before they become problems
  • Upgrade our metrics system to provide the insights we and other network participants need
  • Make our infrastructure deployments cloud provider agnostic
  • Provide our community with resources on how to deploy production Ceramic infra
You’re likely a great candidate if you have…
  • Shipped large scale infrastructure used in production applications
  • Familiarity with Web3 tech and how it’s different
  • A flexible, anti-fragile approach to infrastructure design
  • Deep understanding of UNIX systems
  • Worked extensively with AWS and other cloud infrastructure providers
  • A knack for quickly learning new problem areas, weighing tradeoffs, and recommending a path forward
The Team
We are a lean, endlessly curious team spread across Europe and the East Coast. We are impact driven, intentional about our role, communications and actions, and intensely focused on building quality tools for our open source community. We believe a better model for managing identity and data online can give power back to users and builders, that this model is key to a growing movement, and that our team is a critical part of making that movement successful.
We pay competitively and fairly across the globe, offer great and flexible benefits, and view everyone on our team as an owner — both with generous equity grants and lots of agency to help set our direction.
