About SubQuery

SubQuery is all about making the world’s decentralised data more accessible. Every team needs to process and query decentralised data, we transform, index, and save this data to allow it to be used in more complex applications.

We’re all about helping others create new products that will help us transition to the web3 future.

About the Role

We’re looking for someone to join our growing engineering team as we build and improve our services on Substrate for the Polkadot ecosystem. Ideally you’re a software engineer with interest or experience in blockchain and in Rust. As a core part of the team helping to build the future of the Polkadot ecosystem, you’ll be working on cutting edge technologies and learning new skills along the way.

If working on challenging projects at the intersection of computer science and distributed systems excites you, then this is your role.

Responsibilities

  • Work as part of our engineering team building a new Substrate blockchain connected as a parachain to Polkadot
  • Develop this new blockchain in a public open source manner to meet agreed technical and design requirements
  • Manage and take an active role in our open source community, engaging in discussions so our delivered Substrate pallets solve real world problems and are adopted by all
  • Test and deliver your new work via automated pipelines to external contributors, review PRs, and own releases.
  • Provide technical support and hands-on guidance on these projects to users, external teams and communities

What we are looking for

  • Either a fast learner, or previous experience with blockchain technologies and/or Rust
  • Understanding in the theoretical background in distributed systems, such as consensus algorithms, as well as cryptographic fundamentals
  • Strong knowledge of a modern systems programming language, such as Rust, C++, or Go.
  • Good english written communication skills
  • Highly self-motivated, ability to work autonomously and proactively
  • Nice to have
  • Higher education in Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics or relevant discipline. Master’s degree is even nicer
  • Experience working with large open-source codebases as a leader, maintainer, or contributer
  • Familiarity with Substrate and the Polkadot ecosystem
  • Experience implementing blockchain consensus protocols
  • Ability to author or co-author blog posts, whitepapers or other materials about your work

You can expect

  • You’ll be playing a critical role in one of the top Polkadot projects in the world implementing new blockchains.
  • To learn a huge amount from our team and about the thriving industry that we’re in
  • A flexible work environment where we trust our team with high degrees of autonomy
  • Huge development opportunities to build skills and connections that are valuable in our industry
  • New office in Eden Terrace at the top of the CBD with free team lunches every day
