Blockchain technology is powering a growing wave of innovation. Businesses and governments around the world are using blockchains to make banking more efficient, connect with their customers, and investigate criminal cases. As adoption of blockchain technology grows, more and more organizations seek access to all this ecosystem has to offer. That’s where Chainalysis comes in. We provide complete knowledge of what’s happening on blockchains through our data, services, and solutions. With Chainalysis, organizations can navigate blockchains safely and with confidence.

The engineering team at Chainalysis is inspired by solving the hardest technical challenges and creating products that build trust in cryptocurrencies. We’re a global organization with teams in the UK, Denmark, and the USA who thrive on the challenging work we do and doing it with other exceptionally talented teammates. Our industry changes every day and our job is to build a flexible platform that will allow us to adapt to those rapid changes. 

Platform Engineers at Chainalysis work within a highly skilled team that thrives on making the whole engineering team more effective. Responsible for the evolution of our multi-cloud infrastructure, they champion infrastructure best-practices and influence team goals and product roadmaps. Whether it’s tools to make operating code in production easier, managing foundational shared services or education on AWS, the team is guided by the question - how do we help our colleagues reduce cognitive load and get more done? 

Priorities in your first year include:

  • Operate and evolve highly available and performant engineering platform services such Kubernetes, Artifactory and CICD Platforms. 

  • Enabled R&D teams to avoid hand-offs through self-serve engineering platform services.

  • Reduced the barrier for every engineer at Chainalysis to operate their code in production.

  • Championed best practices for monitoring and observability.

  • Hardened production systems (maintain uptime targets, graceful degradation, self-healing, automated recovery and security requirements) 

  • Brought innovative new ideas and contributed to the team roadmap.

  • Worked with Information Security to improve the systems used to test releases for security issues 

  • Developed best practices around use of cloud technology (AWS).

  • Helped to build and follow SLAs and SLOs for our engineering platform infrastructure.

  • Enabled Chainalysis to continually increase compliance and security standards whilst minimizing the burden on engineering teams.

  • Identified and implemented infrastructure cost saving opportunities.


  • Deep knowledge of deploying Infrastructure as Code using Terraform.

  • Experience administering/securing AWS organizations and multi-account, multi-region network topologies (AWS VPC and Transit Gateway)

  • Understanding of AWS services and technologies such as IAM, S3,  EC2, EKS, RDS, MSK and Lambda. 

  • Experience running, maintaining and troubleshooting multi-tenant Kubernetes clusters in a production environment. Knowledge of service-mesh is desirable but not essential.

  • Prior success implementing infrastructure as code including pipelines as code (Terraform, Helm, Ansible, Jenkins), and containerization technologies (Docker, Kubernetes) 

  • Experience coding in one or more of the following: Java, Scala, Golang, Python or shell scripting.

  • Experience monitoring production systems (DataDog, Prometheus etc.)

  • Experience with tuning RDBMSs (ideally PostgreSQL)

  • Experience with streaming technologies (Kafka, Spark, AWS Kinesis). Beneficial but not essential.

  • Understanding of Incident Response process and tooling (PagerDuty)

  • Experience operating in a standards compliant environment (e.g. ISO-27001, NIST 800-171, SOC 2)

  • Have an interest in cryptocurrencies or a desire to learn - we can help!

We take care of our people with great benefits, professional development opportunities, and fun.
