SWARM IS HIRING

Senior API Magician (Javascript)

Javascript/API team

Swarm is a system of peer-to-peer networked nodes that create a decentralised storage and communication service. The system is economically self-sustaining due to a built-in incentive system enforced through smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain.

Swarm aspires to shape the future towards a self-sovereign global society and permissionless open markets. On Swarm, applications can run autonomously yet securely in a planetary-scale deployment and execution environment.

For the development of our client-facing APIs (HTTP and CLI), we’re looking for a strong candidate with experience designing and shaping APIs. Ideally, you should be fluent with API design principles, have experience with full-stack web development and are aware of the friction points of integrating application frameworks in browsers. You’ll get extra points if you understand web3 concepts and how they affect browser security models.

  • Development and maintenance of Swarm’s client-facing APIs
  • Taking an active role in shaping our APIs
  • Coordinating API design with other stakeholders within and outside the organisation

Your profile

  • You are familiar with Typescript

  • You don’t need to google SOLID principles
  • You can express yourself fluently in English, both verbally and in writing

We appreciate

  • A passionate open-source contributor
  • Experience with libp2p
  • Experience with Go language
  • Familiarity with Web3 concepts and ecosystem
