Empower the Individual Through Crypto

Role overview

*Onsite is also available in New York, Portland, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles*

Gemini is a crypto exchange and custodian that allows customers to buy, sell, store, and earn more than 30 cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ether, litecoin, and Zcash. Gemini is a New York trust company that is subject to the capital reserve requirements, cybersecurity requirements, and banking compliance standards set forth by the New York State Department of Financial Services and the New York Banking Law. Gemini was founded in 2014 by twin brothers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss to empower the individual through crypto.

Crypto is about giving you greater choice, independence, and opportunity. We are here to help you on your journey. We build crypto products that are simple, elegant, and secure. Whether you are an individual or an institution, we want to help you buy, sell, and store your bitcoin and cryptocurrency. Crypto is not just a technology, it's a movement.

The Department: Retail

Gemini is regulated and licensed like a bank, but it’s run like a tech startup, and engineering is the core of the company. There’s a wide range of tough problems to solve at Gemini – from properly securing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of customer funds, to developing innovative new blockchain products, to finding new techniques to combat fraud, to shaving microseconds off our API response times, and everything in between.

All of Gemini’s engineers are able to work across the software platform, not just on their own specialization or subteam. We value a thoughtful, collaborative software development process, coupled with a pragmatic approach to problem solving and delivering software.

The Role: Senior Software Engineer on the Tech Platform team

Responsibilities:

  • Improve developer feedback cycles by speeding up compiling and testing.
  • Develop utilities and patterns to increase developer productivity
  • Develop linters and other static analysis tools to increase safety.
  • Improve feedback cycles at all levels of development (examples: improving the experience of iterating on code locally, deploying to test environments, deploying to production)
  • Improve organization wide concerns (examples: improving the observability of running systems, language and library upgrades).
  • Help other technologists at Gemini be more effective in their roles, through tool and library improvements
  • Write automated tests and work with our QA team to ensure the operation and correctness of new product features.
  • Provide technical input and knowledge to the planning, design, and requirements process for new products and features.
  • Review other software engineers’ code for correctness, style, and information security concerns.
  • Improve the performance, maintainability, and operations of the Gemini code base by engaging in occasional refactoring and upgrade projects.
  • Support your team’s production software by responding to an occasional alert or bug report.

Qualifications:

  • At least 6 years of software engineering experience.
  • Advanced proficiency in at least one backend language. We use mostly Scala and C++ on our backend and Typescript on the frontend – it’s great if you’re comfortable in those or if you’re willing to learn, we are flexible on your background (Python, Go, Java, etc). Kudos if you have experience with Bazel.
  • Good to have prior work experience (or willingness to learn) with building CI/CD pipelines. We mostly use Jenkins at Gemini.
  • Genuinely passionate about working with developers and improving their experience and velocity.
  • Containerization experience or know-how of docker or similar container technology.
  • The ability to work closely across teams and manage dependencies.
  • A customer- and product-focused mindset, with the ability to make well-reasoned tradeoffs between speed and quality.
  • The ability to adapt and handle multiple competing priorities in collaboration with peers.
  • Strong bias for automation.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience building useful utilities and abstractions that enable other teams to deliver software faster
  • Experience building multi-language monorepo tooling

It Pays to Work Here

We take a holistic approach to compensation at Gemini, which includes:

  • Competitive Compensation and Profit-Sharing Equity
  • Flexible vacation policy
  • Retirement Plan Matching
  • Generous Parental leave
  • Comprehensive health plans
  • Training and professional development

At Gemini, we strive to build diverse teams that reflect the people we want to empower through our products, and we are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, or Veteran status. Equal Opportunity is the Law, and Gemini is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and affirmative action employer. If you have a specific need that requires accommodation, please let a member of the People Team know.
