    Role overview

    Description

    IO Global, creator of the Cardano blockchain platform, is looking for a Technical Architect to join its Atala team. As part of Atala, we are developing Prism, a digital identity and verifiable credentials product. We are building a platform with a solid technical foundation that can be tailored to the needs of many businesses. We have clients and many opportunities, and we need software professionals with excellent personalities and solid technical foundations and experience to join a fast-paced team. You will help us design, implement and deliver.

    In the Atala team, we start from product requirements and design, and implement a solution that we own end-to-end. We do protocols, services, applications, and even create infrastructure and deployment plans, fully automating everything in the process. We have built an architecture on top of Cardano, our flagship blockchain, but our core architecture is also blockchain-agnostic. The team is distributed around the globe.

    We use Scala for the backend, and Kotlin to define an SDK for four platforms (JVM, Android, iOS, web). We build applications for the web, Android and iOS. Our infrastructure is currently defined in Terraform and runs in AWS; we are experimenting with Nomad and Kubernetes for orchestrating our services. We have an automated test suite and we are applying continuous integration (CI) practices.

    Your mission

    As a Technical Architect you will be the role model for our software engineers, leading the technical path: from interfacing with clients and understanding and analyzing requirements, to designing and implementing software related to our protocols and backend stack. You are a software engineer who exhibits leadership and organizational skills and you set a high bar for the rest of the software engineering team. Your attention to detail is exemplary and you are strong in coding. Last, but not least, you like to, and know how to, deliver software incrementally.

    Duties will include:

    • Designing and implementing features
    • Anticipating technical evolution and acting proactively
    • Reviewing contributions from other engineers and guiding them technically
    • Analyzing requirements, breaking down work, and helping prioritize it
    • Creating architecture and owning technical areas
    • Planning for incremental software development
    • Delivering according to agile best practices
    • Communicating and analyzing technical details
    • Cultivating contacts and collaborating with other teams.

    Requirements

    Your expertise

    • Experience as a technical architect or technical lead
    • Excellent communicator (technical and non-technical)
    • Skilled in incremental software delivery
    • Skilled in functional and object-oriented programming
    • Analytical, synthetic, and scientific thinker
    • Open-source awareness, in particular licensing.
    • Team player, but also independent
    • Likeable personality with soft skills
    • Avid coder
    • Master of technologies
    • Fearless when it comes to dealing with complexity
    • Product-oriented
    • Attention to detail

    Benefits
