We’re building Sparkswap, a new way to trade cryptocurrency without depositing your funds on an exchange and exposing them to theft or seizure.
We’re the first cryptocurrency exchange built on Lightning Network atomic swaps, new technology that makes instant, peer-to-peer trades without a trusted intermediary possible for the first time.
As a Software Engineer at Sparkswap, you’ll be helping us take this new technology to live trading and helping to set the culture of the company.
We believe cryptocurrency presents an opportunity to build a more open and inclusive financial system. Moving between cryptocurrencies and other assets quickly, without sacrificing control of those assets is critical infrastructure to realize the potential of a cryptocurrency-based financial system. Come help us make that vision a reality.
About the Team
We’re a team of 4 engineers who worked together at FutureAdvisor/BlackRock. We recently completed the Y Combinator Summer 2018 batch.
We are a collaborative team of problem solvers who believe strongly in the power of culture to drive results at a small company. To that end, here are the standards we hold ourselves to:
Care about the mission, each other, our customers, and the work we produce. Work hard, be honest, and do the right thing.
Small improvements over time compound into huge gains. Small mistakes and quickly fixing them avoids large mistakes that are hard to fix.
Stay focused on the most important things. Work fewer hours and drive greater results.
Diversity is a strength. Find value where other people aren’t looking. Don’t worry about what other people do or think.
