Role overview

IO Global, developer of the Cardano blockchain platform, is looking for a Knowledge Engineer to join its sidechains team, based on Ethereum virtual machine execution. You will be working with highly skilled people and be responsible for knowledge management in what is a relatively new project for IOG.

This is an opportunity to build the knowledge management area for Cardano sidechains. You will be responsible for documenting internal knowledge sources and developing internal training. Among the domain areas that you will cover are blockchain core client development, smart contract execution, and consensus protocols.

You will collaborate with technical architects, developers, technical writers, and product owners. The team works with external and internal stakeholders who are building systems that will empower billions around the world.

Your mission

As a Knowledge Engineer, you will be in charge of organizing, aggregating, and creating the team’s internal knowledge. This includes helping other engineers to document their work, and managing material to ensure that it is accessible and useful. You will also be responsible for creating training materials (coding exercises and courses) and training teams and departments (including engineering, research, education, professional services, and technical support) in our systems. You’ll become an expert in the subject, and your feedback will be essential as we improve our stack and expand our developer ecosystem.

Duties will include

  • Creating, contributing to, and maintaining sources of knowledge in the organization, such as wikis, Confluence pages, bibliographies, and code¬†documentation
  • Developing¬†training¬†materials (coding exercises, tutorials, courses)
  • Helping colleagues to find information
  • Working with technical writers to ensure that external¬†documentation¬†is correct and clear
  • Helping¬†development¬†teams¬†set up¬†documentation¬†systems for projects, and supporting the use of tools such as machine-checking
  • Training¬†people in the company to disseminate knowledge
  • Contributing to¬†development¬†work on the project.

Requirements

Your expertise

  • Knowledge of the layers of¬†blockchain¬†technology
  • Technical¬†background,¬†having worked as a¬†developer¬†in a¬†functional¬†programming language (not¬†necessarily¬†Scala,¬†the language used for the¬†blockchain¬†client)
  • Capable of understanding code and following¬†algorithms
  • Knowledge of¬†smart¬†contracts,¬†not¬†necessarily from the¬†development¬†side
  • Experience in technical writing would be desirable.

Benefits

Location

IOG is a fully distributed organization and therefore this is a remote position. Due to team distribution we are ideally searching for someone in a European or US West Coast timezone.

All Colleagues

  • Flexible schedule
  • Remote work - ability to work anywhere
  • Laptop reimbursement
  • Learning &¬†Development¬†Opportunities
  • New starter package to buy hardware essentials (headphones,¬†monitor,¬†etc)
  • Competitive PTO and Sick Leave plan

US Employees

  • Medical, Dental, and Vision benefits coverage through Anthem with 100% premium cost covered by¬†IO¬†Global for the employee and dependents
  • Health Savings Account
