IO Global, creator of Cardano, is searching for a Technical Architect to join its Lightwallet team

Role overview

IO Global, creator of the Cardano blockchain, is searching for a Technical Architect to join its Lightwallet team. You’ll be working with highly skilled software engineers who are implementing a new wallet strategy for IOG. This covers the wallets and various APIs and commercial solutions designed with the Cardano team. Your tooling and architectural choices will influence the adoption of Cardano by billions of users, along with the DApps and DeFi systems that are being developed.

Your mission

As a Technical Architect you take ownership and are accountable for technical decisions about a product. You are responsible for designing products, components, features, and libraries that satisfy functional and non-functional requirements driven by the needs of users. You must also provide technical leadership and supervise the development teams, and must delegate architecture tasks effectively and responsibly to avoid both efficiency bottlenecks and architectural disagreements. You must be pragmatic about technical debt, and must be willing to make difficult compromises in the architecture to deliver minimum viable products within a reasonable time.

Duties will include:

  • Supporting¬†agile¬†software development practices
  • Participating in the planning,¬†definition,¬†and high-level design of the solution and exploring alternatives
  • Providing technical details to scientists, researchers and developers
  • Helping to decide how work will be broken down and allocated to get the best out of¬†team¬†members
  • Ensuring that software engineering principles are followed
  • Enabling a continuous delivery of features through appropriate¬†architecture¬†design and by establishing timelines and milestones
  • Distinguishing between features and enablers, and proactively recommending work on enablers to allow the future implementation of features
  • Defining¬†subsystems and their interfaces, allocating clear responsibilities to subsystems
  • Ensuring that IOG products¬†do not¬†depend on unstable or immature external libraries
  • Evaluating and selecting appropriate software or hardware and suggesting integration methods
  • Managing¬†legacy systems and integrating with legacy technology when appropriate
  • Acquiring deep technical understanding of problems and solutions
  • Knowing the limitations of your¬†own¬†knowledge and experience to understand when to learn more or when to look for outside expertise
  • Providing technical guidance to software¬†engineers.

Requirements

Your expertise

  • A degree in computer science or engineering
  • At least two to three years experience of industrial/commercial development
  • A minimum of one year as a technical¬†architect
  • A minimum of one year as the¬†leader¬†of a software development¬†team
  • A¬†background¬†in¬†distributed¬†computing, and preferably strong experience with¬†blockchain¬†technologies
  • Strong communication skills; technical product¬†ownership¬†experience will be much appreciated
  • Familiarity with¬†agile,¬†Jira and GitHub is essential
  • Deep technical understanding of problems and solution spaces
  • Consciousness of the costs of¬†architectural¬†decisions
  • Ability to clearly and comprehensively justify suggestions and decisions
  • Knowledge of¬†functional¬†and object-oriented programming paradigms
  • Experience of working with scientists, researchers and formal methods¬†specialists
  • Knowledge of programming languages such as¬†Haskell,¬†Javascript,¬†Rust,¬†and¬†Scala
  • Aptitude for writing and oral communication, organization and problem-solving.

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 APAC timezone.

All Colleagues

  • Flexible schedule
  • Remote work - ability to work anywhere
  • Laptop reimbursement
  • New starter package to buy hardware essentials (headphones, monitor, etc)
  • Learning & Development opportunities
  • 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
  • Life Insurance

UK Employees

  • Monthly Health Stipend to use towards any wellness or medical coverage/service
  • Pension
  • 250+
  • Singapore
