Full stack developer, with frontend focus
PERMANENT – ON-SITE OR REMOTE – FULL TIME
Arweave is a permanent information storage network, built on a new type of blockchain called a blockweave. We are working to solve the problem of the ‘memory hole’, as formulated by George Orwell in Nineteen Eighty-Four, by building the first data storage medium that truly never forgets. Arweave works by rewarding network participants for contributing hard disk space to the network, in a similar fashion to proof of work in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
What you’ll do
You’ll be located in our Berlin office and work closely with the core team, but should be able to
work independently and be self-directed.
Arweave immutable storage network. The role is flexible and you’ll be given freedom to give
your input and proactively shape our products and processes. You’ll be involved in all aspects of
the development cycle from initial ideas, gathering requirements, prototyping, development,
deployment and maintenance.
The Arweave network is accessible over a JSON based HTTP API which lets us develop
applications using traditional web technologies, so you’ll need to be experienced with core
frontend technologies like JS, HTML, CSS, have experience with some backend languages e.g.
Python, PHP, Node, Go, etc, database technologies like MySQL, and have general *nix server
admin skills. Knowledge about AWS and cloud services would be useful.
- Strong practical knowledge of ES6
- Practical experience of using Vue.js, React, Angular, or similar JS frameworks along with
Vuex/Redux or some other similar state management pattern
- SASS/SCSS or LESS
- Webpack, Gulp, Grunt or similar build tools and preprocessors
- Git, testing and CI tools
We aim to open source as much as possible, so attention to detail is important and you’ll be
responsible for ensuring code is of high quality and well documented.
An eye for design is needed as you’ll be building and shaping user interfaces. Some
understanding of blockchains would help but this can be learnt on the job.
The role will be based in our office in Berlin. We are looking to fill the position immediately.
