Unit 410 was founded in 2018 by a trio of engineers from Coinbase, Google, and NASAâs Jet Propulsion Laboratory to enable the largest stakeholders to use their crypto in secure and novel ways. Weâve long believed in the potential of programmable money and are excited to continue pushing forward the state of the art through bleeding edge key generation and encryption services, industry leading operation of proof-of-stake nodes / validators on many networks, and actively protecting, participating, and giving back. Done right, proof-of-stake networks offer scaling, efficiency, and governance improvements over existing layer 1 protocols. But this comes with novel security challenges. Protecting online key material, and managing the risk of slashing requires new architectural patterns, hardening, and methods for secure cryptographic signatures. Weâre excited to continue to mature solutions across these areas and more. We also believe that staking and validating is not a zero-sum game and thereâs no shortage of work towards scaling programmable money so weâll continue to liberally open sourcing the tools weâve built. To date weâve shared many tools such as a Polkadot Transaction Parser, Polkadot Multisig WebApp, GCP SSH Certificate Authority, MPC for Tendermint Validators, Vault Shamir (in Go), Horcrux (CLI for Shamir), and many more.
Unit 410 is a small, senior team of experienced engineers empowering many of the largest cryptocurrency holders to actively participate in new networks and novel opportunities. This engineering role works on our client facing products and their internal integrations across our engineering team. Our clients rely on these tools to interact with and understand novel new blockchains. Internally, these tools automate manual processes, allowing our team to dedicate more time for high-leverage projects.
Collaborative: You’re great with people and collaborating across teams to deliver results. There are often complex incentives between technical teams, communities and institutions and you would be the glue that brings them together to come up with better solutions together.
Analytical: Our best results have come from counterintuitive or disruptive perspectives. You’re comfortable objectively evaluating new opportunities and identifying insights that others have missed.
Clear Communicator: Working with many people means working with diverse perspectives and disparate datasets. You effectively process information and communicate a clear path forward for all parties.
Curious: You’re the type of person who explores cutting-edge tech. You might already be exploring the applications rising on new networks, and are testing out the latest cross-chain bridges. We’re passionate about crypto and you are too.
Fullstack Products: Lead, launch and land new client-facing services including web and mobile interfaces that are used daily by our clients to interact with novel cryptocurrency protocols.
Implement: Develop new capabilities using TypeScript and React.js in a Next.js application deployed on GCP.
Client Collaboration: Work with our clients to understand their needs, present your work, iterate on their feedback and delight them with new capabilities that make them more productive.
Internal Integrations: Our most impactful new products expose capabilities and backend services built alongside the rest of our team. Collaborate with other engineers to expose their work, tools, and interfaces to a larger audience.
4-6 years experience designing, building, and maintaining client-facing products.
Detailed understanding of web frameworks and experience codifying, automating, segmenting, and scaling client-facing services.
Experience evaluating risk, implementing security protections and maintaining data privacy.
Working understanding of cryptocurrency and proof-of-stake.
