Job Description

We're looking for a top-tier Back-end Engineer to help us develop secure and functional code for mission-critical systems essential to our products. You’ll play a key role in growing a business through your insights, and you’ll help shape the way a revolutionary new technology is introduced to and adopted by new audiences. Every day, you’ll collaborate with a world-class team (and some very cute dogs) in our Vancouver office.
Every one of us shares a common vision: to create the future we want to live in. We need the right people (and pups) to help us realize that vision.
A little about us:
CryptoKitties is the world's most successful blockchain game, accounting for 25% of the traffic on the Ethereum network upon launch. Unlike cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or ether, CryptoKitties are crypto collectibles that secure ownership of digital art via distributed ledger technology. Since launching, tens of millions of US dollars in transactions have been conducted on the platform, with some of the game’s most popular cats selling for the equivalent of over US$100,000. The cultural phenomenon has been featured by The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, The New York Times, and VICE.

Our team combines creativity and experience to test new ground in game-making—our mission is to inspire delight with the goal of attracting the first billion consumers to the world of blockchain games and digital assets.

A little about you:

  • Culture fit is of utmost importance to us and we’re willing to shape the role to fit the perfect candidate. That said, there are a few qualities or experiences a candidate must possess:
  • Consistently stays on top of new backend trends, methodologies and best practices.
  • Contributes and enforces standards throughout our development process.
  • Identifies sub-optimal processes and communicates alternatives to the team.
  • Understands products enough to be able to effectively prioritize engineering tasks when necessary.
  • Is a strong communicator that can work together with design, product, and marketing teams.
  • Is comfortable with trying out new tools, failing fast, and unknowns.
  • Is comfortable with database design and familiarity with database optimizations.
  • Understands and applies best practices of API development.
  • Is adamant about test coverage for all backend services.
  • Has proficiency in Golang, Javascript, and Node.js.
  • Has familiarity with PostgreSQL and React.

Bonus points if you have the following:

  • Understands the deployment process, and is comfortable with docker, containers, and kubernetes.
  • Has a strong understanding of applications and API security.
  • Has familiarity with blockchain.
  • Has familiarity with Python.
  • Is familiar with at least one of the functional programming languages: Haskell, Clojure, Lisp, etc.


More about CryptoKitties:
At CryptoKitties we recruit the best and foster an environment that enables our team. That means a workplace that is diverse, inclusive, and open-minded. We welcome applicants of all backgrounds, regardless of race, colour, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or disability.

We offer compensation commensurate with the high level of talent we seek, a dog-friendly office–our dogs are the cutest in the industry, and we won’t be told otherwise–extensive benefits, and flexible time off policy.
