Job Description

The global financial ecosystem is changing. Revolutionary blockchain technology has unlocked the potential for people around the world to have more equal access to wealth and information. This transformation has begun with the mass global adoption of cryptocurrencies but like all new financial systems, it needs greater trust to realize its full potential and remain safe from bad actors. That’s where we come in. The Chainalysis blockchain data platform enables businesses, governments, and banks to solve the world’s most high-profile criminal cases, paving the way for an economy built on blockchains.

The Engineers at Chainalysis are driven by working on new technical challenges every day. Relentless problem-solvers and big dreamers, we’re creating the building blocks for future blockchain technologies.

The DevOps Engineer is the mastermind behind all the processes and tools that enable us to ship better, faster, and more reliably. They champion infrastructure best-practices and influence team goals and product roadmaps, all while optimizing our infrastructure and development workflows. We measure success by how well you’ve enabled the team to safely operate with little to no intervention. 

 

In one year you’ll know you were successful if…

  • Ensure observability and business continuity of our systems
  • Contribute to our cloud architecture 
  • You’ve reduced the friction in an engineer’s day to day workflow 
    • Hardened production systems (maintained uptime targets, graceful degradation, self-healing and automated recovery) 
  • Worked closely with Information Security to improve the systems used to test releases for security issues 
  • Established objective measures of done and documented assumptions  

 

A background like this helps: 

  • Experience in one or more of the following: Java, Scala, Golang, Python, or shell scripting
  • Prior success implementing infrastructure as code including pipelines as code (Terraform, Helm, Ansible, Jenkins), and containerization technologies (Docker, Kubernetes) 
  • Experience monitoring production systems (DataDog, Prometheus)
  • Experience with cloud architecture (AWS, GCP)
  • Experience with streaming pipelines (Kafka, Spark)
  • Blockchain P2P Node and Networking Fundamentals
  • Experience with tuning RDBMSs (ideally PostgreSQL)

 

A general understanding of popular Blockchain technologies would differentiate you:

  • Bitcoin and/or other UTXO based Protocols (Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, ZCash, Dash)
  • Ethereum and/or other Account based Protocols (EOS, Stellar, Cardano, Tron)

We take care of our people with great benefits, professional development opportunities, and fun.

 

You belong here. 

At Chainalysis, we believe that diversity of experience and thought makes us stronger. With both customers and employees around the world, we are committed to ensuring our team reflects the unique communities around us. Some of the ways we’re ensuring we keep learning are an internal Diversity Committee, Days of Reflection throughout the year including International Women’s Day, Juneteenth, Harvey Milk Day, and International Migrant’s Day, and a commitment to continue revisiting and reevaluating our diversity culture. 

 

We encourage applicants across any race, ethnicity, gender/gender expression, age, religion, ability, experience and more. We can’t wait to meet you.
