Smart Contract Lead


We are a passionate young team on the mission to enable a fairer, more decentralized world. To do so we are building a crucial piece of cross-chain infrastructure to enable multiple blockchains to coexist and serve different needs. Apart from the tech we care a lot about user experience and aim to make complex technologies accessible for everyone.

We are looking for a passionate Smart Contract Lead with the ability to manage a team of Smart Contract Engineers and the according technical background. Someone who’s well-versed in the world of Solidity and EVM chains and at the same time enjoys leading and understanding people.


As a Smart Contract Lead you will take managerial ownership of our Smart Contract Team and lead several Solidity Developers. You are expected to have in-depth EVM ecosystem knowledge (ideally other ecosystems such as Solana, Cosmos, etc. as well), several years of Solidity experience and lead engineering teams before. You'll be working closely with our CTO and backend teams and own the Smart Contract development roadmap.

Among other tasks, you will:

  • Lead a team of experienced Smart Contract Engineers
  • Define Smart Contract architecture and review Solidity code
  • Ensure a high quality, secure code base
  • Work with auditors to identify and patch vulnerabilities
  • Manage smart contract deployments
  • Conduct 1on1s with team members and coach the team


  • Deep exposure and knowledge of the Blockchain world and DeFi ecosystem
  • 5+ years of professional development experience
  • 3+ years of managing a team in an engineering leadership role
  • 2+ years of EVM experience and writing Solidity code
  • Exposure to further Blockchain ecosystems such as Solana, Cosmos, NEAR, Polkadot
  • Strong communication skills and ownership
  • Past experience in fast growing startups in the crypto space
  • Located in EU timezone


Empowered teams:

We take the best person with the right skills, then inspire them to use them! We trust our team and give them the space and ownership to excel and achieve.

Flexible time management:

We believe work should adapt to your life, not the other way around. We only schedule a few fixed meetings every week – you're free to arrange the rest of your time as you like.

Inclusive culture:

It’s our priority to make our whole team feel included, appreciated and respected. Our global, culturally diverse team is our most important asset.


We’re a fully remote, global company. As long as you’re not on Mars (the WiFi is terrible we heard), being part of our team from the comfort of your own home works perfectly well for us.

Retreats and team building:

At least once a year we invite the global team to an in-person retreat at a beautiful location and a smaller one for your geography area.
