The Nomic Foundation is a non-profit behind Hardhat, the most widely used Ethereum development environment. We’re dedicated to building open-source infrastructure and tools that empower Ethereum developers to decentralize the world while fostering growth and innovation in the developer ecosystem.
We are a remote team located across Europe, the UK, and the Americas. Most of our work is done asynchronously, relying on written communication. We hire in the European and American time zones to ensure enough overlap between everyone. This is a fully-remote role, and we’re open to candidates applying within UTC+2 to UTC-4 timezones.
This role presents an opportunity to be an early and significant contributor to a project that we believe will be important in its own right.
Ignition is an open-source typescript-based deployment system for the Solidity ecosystem. We are moving from private alpha to public beta and will concentrate over the next year on gaining users by adding useful features based on user feedback that are robust, well-documented, and delightful. We are a small team (2 people currently) with lots still to be defined and lots to do.
In this role, you will be:
Designing and implementing large new features based on our roadmap
Writing up documents and tutorials to explain new features to our users
Supporting and mentoring other developers on the team
Providing bug fixes via GitHub issues and support via our discord channel and telegram group
Shaping the roadmap to get us to our goal of being the best deployment system in Ethereum as judged by the community
Ethereum / EVM
The skills we look for:
At least 5 years of experience as a software engineer
2+ years of working with TypeScript
Knowledge and experience with Node.js
Experience working with Ethereum/EVM
We work remotely and mostly asynchronously, so the ability to take ownership and work with minimal direction is crucial
As this is an early-stage project, we are seeking a teammate who is comfortable adapting to changing requirements
Prior experience working in a remote and globally-distributed environment
Experience in leading projects & mentoring other team members
Why is this an exciting opportunity:
You’ll have a chance to work on a core component of the Ethereum stack and support the entire Ethereum ecosystem to be more productive
Contribute to Ethereum as a project
Service the needs of high-profile projects that use Hardhat
All of your work will be open-source, and you’ll have the chance to collaborate with other open-source projects (both inside and outside Ethereum)
