Role Description:

We are seeking a Senior Backend Engineer with a strong interest in blockchain technology to join our Osmosis Data team. As a Backend Engineer, you will play a critical role in building data pipelines and developing API-based backend services.

You will collaborate closely with other engineering teams to support their data requirements and ensure our data systems are robust, scalable, and efficient, enabling all the product innovation we have planned to deliver in Osmosis.

What you could work on:

  • Helping design, implement, and operate data-intensive microservices from the ground up.
  • Building and maintaining data processing pipelines that extract and process data from the osmosis blockchain.
  • Troubleshooting complex multi-threaded production issues by debugging geo-distributed deployments
  • Benchmarking and optimizing code paths to ensure low latency and high availability responses
  • Developing and maintaining secure and scalable backend services and APIs.
  • Designing a real-time streaming system capable of listening to and reacting to real-time blockchain data and events.
  • Contributing to improving our protocol's observability by developing tools for monitoring, analyzing, and reporting on key metrics and behaviors (e.g., incentives).

You may be a fit for this role if you:

  • Have at least 4 years of professional software development experience in building and maintaining data-intensive applications.
  • Possess a solid understanding of Backend and Data Engineering principles and best practices.
  • Have an appreciation for writing performance-oriented code and a deep familiarity with algorithms and data structures
  • Have intuition around debugging live production and performance issues as well as familiarity with necessary tooling
  • Have a strong understanding of distributed systems and how they can be operated at scale.
  • Have strong programming skills, preferably in Go, Python, and/or Rust.
  • Have experience in running and operating production workloads.
  • Have strong experience with relational and non-relational databases
  • Are passionate about blockchains and decentralized technology.
  • Possess excellent communication skills and the ability to work collaboratively.
  • Demonstrate a proactive approach to problem-solving and ownership of tasks.

Experience that will set you apart:

  • Previous experience working on high-scale, highly critical data systems, preferably in DeFi or TradFi.
  • Proven record of driving processes from start to production, demonstrating the ability to lead initiatives from the conceptual phase through to successful operational deployment.
  • Familiarity with the Cosmos SDK stack.
  • Contributions to open-source data projects.
  • Experience working in remote and globally distributed teams.


At Osmosis, you'll join a passionate and talented team working at the forefront of DeFi innovation. We offer a competitive compensation package, a collaborative work environment, and the opportunity to make a real impact on the future of finance.
