Senior Software Engineer, Crypto-Native

Monad Labs is the team building Monad, the performant and parallel EVM Layer-1 blockchain. We are a team of systems engineers and community builders who are on a mission to help crypto eat the world. After recently raising $225M in series A funding led by Paradigm, we are growing our team.

The Role

Monad Labs is looking for a Senior Software Engineer Engineer to join the core engineering team. Your work will initially be focused on integrating the Monad blockchain with the outside world such as JSON-RPC, indexers, wallets, bridges, storage, analytics platforms, and applications.

Who You Are

  • You have at least 5 years of software engineering experience
  • You have prior experience in blockchain engineering at a Layer-1, Layer-2, or Infrastructure (Oracle, Bridge, Indexer, RPC Provider, Wallet, or other high-performance app) project
  • You have backend engineering experience in low-level languages such as C, C++, or Rust
  • You have built something significant from scratch
  • You are a great communicator who is willing to participate in technical discussions, reviews, and documentation
  • You value the following qualities that define Monad’s Engineering team
    • Ability to DO things. When it comes to problem-solving, we value practicality and common sense.
    • Strong design skills (e.g. higher-level thinking about how system design, appropriate abstractions, maintainability, to name a few, work)
    • Excellence in whatever you have worked on before
    • Rigorous development mindset

Why work with us

  • Challenging problems. You’ll work on extremely challenging problems with massive impact.
  • Huge opportunity. The Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) standard is ubiquitous, but existing EVM-compatible chains are very slow. Monad’s core innovations offer developers the best of both worlds (portability and performance) and are a game-changer for mass user adoption in crypto.
  • The right team. You’ll be part of a small, exceptional team (bios here).
  • Culture. We’re a lean team working together to achieve very ambitious goals. We are united in our culture of collaboration, low egos, and high-quality outputs. As an early member of our team, you’ll help continue to shape our culture.
  • Compensation. You’ll receive a competitive salary and equity package.
  • Resources and growth. We’re well-capitalized, with backing from leading venture funds like Paradigm, Electric Capital, Greenoaks, Dragonfly, and Coinbase Ventures. We keep a lean team, and this is a rare opportunity to join. You’ll learn a lot and grow as our company scales.

Salary and Benefits

Minimum full-time salary of $200,000.  (**This is not a guarantee of compensation or salary; a final offer amount may vary based on factors including but not limited to experience and geographic location.)

Monad Labs’ benefits for US-based full-time employees include medical, dental, and vision insurance (100% coverage for employees); unlimited and encouraged paid time off; monthly mental health and fitness stipend; paid parental leave; and 10 company-observed holidays.

Our team is headquartered in NoMad, Manhattan, NYC. This is for a hybrid (3 days/week in office) role.
