Clearmatics is a protocol engineering company. We are building a new financial market architecture that is more open, fair, and resilient than the legacy systems that are in use today. We develop protocols and software that create new markets for risk and more efficient infrastructure for trading, backed by a robust and scalable blockchain network, and secured with modern cryptographic techniques and economic mechanism design.
Clearmatics is based in London but operates on a 'remote first' model. We welcome candidates from all over the world. We have close ties to the Open Source and Ethereum communities, with Vitalik Buterin as an adviser.
The Engineering team at Clearmatics is responsible for developing our blockchain software at Layer 1 and Layer 2. At the core of our stack is the Autonity client, the node software that powers our blockchain network. It is based on Ethereum (go-ethereum) and is secured by Tendermint Proof-of-Stake consensus. Our decentralised platforms are built on smart contracts and decentralised applications, and are supported by backend services in Go.
We're looking to hire a Product Engineer to expand our team.
You are a visionary and an entrepreneur. You also have a passion for market structure and how it can be re-designed with decentralised protocol technology to make markets more open, transparent and socially useful. Price discovery, order flow and trade execution are important concepts to you; you know the difference between a CLOB and an OTC market; and you have at least thought about how peer-to-peer communication and blockchain protocols change the market structure design space.
Whether you have been a tech startup founder or a trader in the financial markets, you can demonstrate a record of identifying new opportunities and driving ideas from concept to realization. You have strong analytical abilities, which you have used to evaluate and explain tradeoffs, and to translate ambitious targets into practical roadmaps. You aren't deterred by unfamiliar concepts and can reach across disciplines and functional boundaries to build cohesive solutions. You have the ability to communicate clearly and generate consensus across teams in engineering, research, operations, and marketing.
