Engineering at Chainalysis Inc.

Engineering team and processes

Our engineering organization has teams in New York, DC, Copenhagen and Aarhus, as well as remote presences in other European cities.

Because of our distributed nature, communication within and between teams is very important. We use Zoom and Slack for communicating and coordinating between teams.

Each team has a fair amount of autonomy to make technical decisions about their stack and process. Most teams incorporate elements of Agile such as daily standups, periodic retros and sprint planning.

Teams use Git and Github to manage code and do pull requests and code reviews. We use Zenhub for project management.

We incorporate CI/CD practices where possible, with Jenkins automating our builds, artifact management, and deployments.

Technical Challenges

We are ingesting data from several different blockchains and providing tools to analyze that data in near real time.

We have critical customer-facing APIs that receive several hundred thousand requests a month.

The crypto space moves quickly, and we have to be nimble enough to respond to new innovations while maintaining support for a diverse customer base.

Projects you might work on
  • Designing updates to an ingestion API receiving hundreds of thousands of API requests a month from paying customers.

  • Optimize risk calculation of several million user records so it can be done in seconds instead of days.
