source technologies for developers and organisations to implement and build
upon. Our Web3 tech stack includes Polkadot, Substrate, and Kusama.
We believe in a decentralised web that respects the freedom and data of

We're looking for someone who prefers autonomy over being told what to do, a
person who would enjoy having to communicate the solutions of their own
picking to others in a loosely-structured work environment, and someone who
sees their life goal in automating the unautomateable and then optimizing its'
build pipeline for sub-second latencies.
You would need to be proficient with:
Github Actions, Gitlab CI or similar workflow automation tools (we

Ever solved non-trivial issues with CI caching in large-scale build
Will be able to look into eyes of Kubernetes and whisper “I'm not afraid
Display obsessive traits when it comes to retaining and organizing
operation metrics of the tools you use
Are able to reason about security properties of codebases and
infrastructure setups, or even (in an ideal case) know how to fuzz.
