Pre-Series A

We see blockchain as a new tool that allows developers to create an entirely new set of experiences for their users. That said, one of the great challenges for companies considering blockchain-based products is poor UX – specifically onboarding, transactions, and sign-in/password recovery. Bitski's vision is to solve wallet usability for developers, so that they can in-turn focus on creating unique and useful experiences.

Active Roles
Why join us?
  • We're using best practices (CI/CD, observability, hardware security modules) and new technology (go/rust/TypeScript, kubernetes, service mesh) to build our stack right from the beginning.

  • We're working in the quickly evolving blockchain space so there is lots of room for personal and professional growth

  • Our team has successfully built and sold startups before and we are funded by Coinbase, Kindred, Signia, Founders Fund, and Social Capital


Engineering at Bitski
Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team operates on two week sprints. Each sprint begins with a meeting to discuss time estimates and reasons to build certain features, and ends with a retrospective where we discuss the work and improve for next sprint. Engineers typically work with a designer and any other interested parties to spec a feature, then work on the feature individually. We use Pull Requests on GitHub to conduct code reviews. All engineers are also empowered to push code to production, all commits run through CI and are automatically deployed to our production OpenShift cluster.

Technical Challenges

We design and build highly secure systems to handle storing private keys and signing data. We also maintain APIS that handle millions of transactions per day.

Projects you might work on
  • You would build backend services and APIS in Rust that power blockchain based products and games.

  • You would be building our client SDKs in TypeScript that embed a purchase flow for digital assets into other companies' products.

  • You would be building small games, trading platforms, or markets that demonstrate how to use digital assets for other developers
