If you’ve answered with 3 resounding yeses, then we want to meet you!   

What We Expect

We are a cutting-edge web3 infrastructure scale-up project seeking a few very talented developers who are not just looking for a job but want to be challenged to accomplish great things in an exciting venture

We are the veterans of many successful startups and will put you on the accelerated learning curve toward your future success

We are looking for an experienced Senior/Lead Golang Engineer who has designed, built, and operated high-throughput, highly resilient distributed data systems
This is a rare opportunity to work with a number of talented innovators on building a protocol that can change the data cloud landscape, decentralizing big data

This core systems development position will challenge you to drive the design and development of significant system software components with a highly collaborative, test-driven, and rapid prototyping approach
In addition, you will definitely need to build upon your previous innovation and operational experience with highly scalable distributed systems that provide availability, reliability, and performance guarantees

Our Ethos

We look for a few things across all hires we make at Cere, regardless of role or team: 

  • We seek teammates who will thrive in our fast-paced work environment, where we default to methodical, simulation-driven, fast development iterations and a first-principle thinking mindset
  • We crave teammates with high standards and strong discipline, embracing a growth mindset to learn and incrementally improve habits and processes continuously
  • We require contributors to have excellent communication skills (esp
    written), for everything must be well organized and tracked in Notion, Slack, Wiki’s, etc
    We want autonomous, goal-oriented individuals who embrace transparency and accountability
    No one wants to micro-manage others
  • We need good teammates who are generally cool people who want to be part of a great team & decentralized community where everyone truly helps and challenges each other to learn/grow by innovating together towards greater shared goals
    Embracing the building of such a collaborative community is the only way we can sustain rapid innovation (and the only way to live/work, really)
