Who we are

The Nomic Foundation is a non-profit advancing the Ethereum ecosystem. We build open-source runtimes, compilers, build systems, and deployment solutions that are used by tens of thousands of developers. We emphasize robust engineering and lean processes, allowing for quick decision-making and distraction-free software development. You have the opportunity to shape the future of the Ethereum ecosystem through deep technical work on critical developer infrastructure, where your specific contributions will have a tangible impact.

About the team

The Hardhat team builds our established and market-leading products. These are user-facing infrastructure that developers use to write, test, compile, and deploy their Solidity contracts for Ethereum. Our users depend on our products for their end-to-end experience of building software. We deliver these features at scale, with users ranging from beginners learning the ropes to teams managing production systems with billions in user on-chain capital at stake. We aim to provide the Ethereum ecosystem with a professional developer tool that they can rely on to rigorously build, test, and maintain Ethereum software.

This is a fully-remote role, and we’re open to candidates applying within UTC+2 to UTC-4 timezones.

What you’ll do

Build a High-Performing Team:

  • Motivate and guide engineers to achieve their full potential, fostering a culture of learning and development.
  • Implement and improve processes like performance reviews, career development plans, and efficient hiring practices.
  • Establish a clear team structure with roles and ownership well-defined.

Drive Successful Product Delivery:

  • Take ownership of projects, ensuring on-time delivery with the desired features and quality.
  • Work with the team to define MVPs, set milestones, and assess project feasibility.
  • Manage project scope by prioritizing tasks, identifying dependencies, and mitigating risks.
  • Collaborate with product managers to translate user needs and market trends into a technical roadmap.

Communication & Alignment:

  • Increase transparency within the team by sharing information on other Nomic projects and initiatives.
  • Champion the team's achievements and deliverables to other departments.
  • Proactively communicate with leadership and stakeholders to address concerns, clarify direction, and ensure alignment across teams.
  • Articulate a clear vision for the team's mission, challenges, and milestones, connecting their work to Nomic's broader goals.

High-Level Technical Leadership:

  • Actively participate in technical discussions, providing high-level guidance and expertise during code reviews and design decisions.
  • Act as a mentor and sounding board for technical decisions, ensuring alignment with project goals while empowering individual ownership.

  • 3+ years of experience in managing & growing teams, establishing a team structure, and ensuring team wellbeing, ideally in a remote and async setting.
  • 6+ years of experience leading projects.
  • Proven track record of technical leadership, managing projects and multi-year roadmaps.
  • Ability to direct without micromanaging or forcing decisions.
  • Experience implementing or refining processes around performance reviews, career development, and hiring.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.
  • Proven ability to design and implement scalable, maintainable software architectures.
  • Strong expertise in conducting code reviews, identifying potential technical issues or risks, and suggesting improvements.

Nice to have:

  • Prior experience building extensible developer tools, including test environments, deployment systems, build pipelines.
  • Experience with open source and/or TypeScript projects.
