Developer Infrastructure – Blockchain Core

About The Role

We are looking for a passionate and experienced Blockchain Core DevInfra to join our team
A blockchain is a highly complex distributed system
Also, a blockchain has to provide absolute SLAs in terms of data correctness and availability
As such it required custom-built frameworks to bring certainty into the operations

The blockchain dev-infra role will work closely with our PE team to ensure –

  • Developer Productivity – Build efficient CI/CD, test frameworks, benchmarking, and debugging tools to enable faster iterations
  • Reliability – replicate real-world network scenarios and simulate failures
    Enable stronger guarantees on the system SLAs and prevent breakage due to changes
  • Efficiency – build benchmarks and provide tooling that identifies low-level system efficiency opportunities
    Enable one-click load tests to ensure consistency of throughput and latency under realistic workloads
    The team at Aptos Labs is on a mission to build the highest-throughput blockchain and will require innovative frameworks to ensure the performance of the system

What you’ll be doing:

  • Build and enhance the test frameworks that enable module-level testing
    Isolate different components of the system and run tests that ensure individual module success (for example, consensus, networking, state-sync etc)
  • Enable CI/CD pipelines that ensure all the changes are thoroughly tested and minimize the chances of regressions
  • Enable one-click load tests that can spin up 100s or nodes globally with various configurations
    Simulate real-world network conditions and chaos testing
  • Build tooling to replay transactions from mainnet/ testnet to a smaller test environment
  • Build automation and visibility into the system test frameworks

What weโ€™re looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience as a software engineer
  • Strong appreciation for automation and tooling
  • Experience building release or performance tooling and automation
  • Experience building CI/CD pipelines
  • Previous experience building/scaling infrastructure
  • Nice to have: data visualization and observability tooling experience
  • Be able to proactively manage prioritization of work and deliver work with great quality and influence the broader team in creating leverage
  • Passion to initiate and lead projects to completion in a fast-paced, ever-changing, start-up environment
