About Paxos

Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Today’s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky - supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we’re rebuilding it.

As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Nubank and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower today’s financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.

  • Enhance our blockchain node infrastructure to continue achieving 99.99% data availability for internal services
  • Take full ownership of high quality software development from concept through to launch - ensuring excellence in design, coding, testing, and deployment
  • Apply engineering best-practices including unit and integration testing, source code version control, agile planning/estimation
  • Analyze complex requirements, transforming them into actionable tasks and milestones
  • Effectively navigate the trade-offs among MVP vs Enterprise-Grade, Time-to-market and in other relevant dimensions

  • Experience or interest in domains like Distributed Systems, Cryptography, Databases, or cloud platforms like AWS
  • Ability to comprehend and contribute to system architecture discussions, with a focus on understanding trade-offs in design decisions
  • Familiarity with online web application architectures and infrastructures, including clustering (Kubernetes), containerizing (Docker), message queuing (Kafka), telemetry/instrumentation (Prometheus/Grafana), etc.
