Figment is hiring a
Web3 Software Engineer - Mat Leave Coverage

Compensation: $110k - $150k

Location: ON Toronto, Ontario, Canada

About the Role

We are seeking an experienced Golang developer to build tooling as it relates to collecting, ingesting, integrating, processing, transforming, storing, managing, monitoring, and optimizing blockchain data.

The Data Availability team delivers big data extraction and processing solutions with highly available APIs. We're looking for someone who can learn new blockchain data structures and contribute to Figment's data processing infrastructure.

This is a remote contract position, with team members in North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia. This role is unique because you get to work with many new blockchains and deliver blazingly fast APIs on huge amounts of data. This work helps people around the world to foster Web3 technologies. If you enjoy figuring out how new blockchains work and love solving distributed data processing problems, then this role may be a good fit for you. Ideal candidates are comfortable working in an unstructured environment, dealing with uncertainty, minimal direction, and working across a range of projects.


  • Create high performance indexing software to ingest data from blockchains or ingest data from other sources in Golang
  • Full responsibility for technical architecting and team processes
  • Work closely with other various business units to prioritize deliverables and set timelines
  • Technical Decisions between different engineering approaches and explain them to the others on the team and achieve buy-in on your proposal
  • Process big data collections and design fast-read data storages
  • Design and implement HA APIs for large blockchain datasets
  • Designing next generation data pipelines


  • Proven extensive experience in software engineering and distributed systems
  • Ability to write production-ready applications in Go
  • Ability to reason about tradeoffs between different engineering approaches
  • Familiar with data storage solutions (SQL/noSQL databases)
  • Familiar with containerized infrastructure (Docker, Kubernetes)
  • Results oriented individual with a high EQ and attention to detail
  • Architecting your own solutions for significant problems, factoring in maintenance, scalability and security concerns to your solution approach
  • Team process with agile methodology
  • A collaborative approach to sharing ideas and finding innovative solutions
  • Improve overall productivity and unblock team members

We do not expect you to be a blockchain expert. Some familiarity is definitely a bonus, but we will help you get up to speed where needed. You’ll only be limited by how much you want to learn about Web3 technologies.
