- San Francisco, CA, United States
Routefire is looking for an engineer with full-stack experience and an interest in (and ideally experience in) cryptocurrencies and/or trading. The position will involve developing our data pipeline, exchange connectivity, trading algorithms, and frontend web application. The majority of projects are blue ocean and the candidate will have the opportunity to shape the architecture of Routefire's trading engine and routing protocols going forward. Extra points to the mathematically inclined and/or those with experience in computer security.
Languages we're using: Go, ES6 Technologies we're using: React.js, gRPC, Kubernetes
We're a crypto company experiencing explosive growth and building out our team. We're looking for founding engineers to join us and help take on a number of blue-ocean projects.
The tl;dr is we make technology that allows institutions to trade cryptoassets (both cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin as well as any other blockchain asset) in high volume. This allows a variety of players, from hedge funds to merchant services or remittance providers to banks and bulge-bracket brokers, to utilize cryptoassets in their technology, even at scale. Right now, selling even a few million dollars worth of Bitcoin or Ether (a fairly small dollar number in international global finance terms) is enough to cause temporary price dislocation that would be harmful to the trader, to the market, and to the crypto community.
The way we do it is via execution algorithms — the most commonly known being the famed
VWAP -- which are frequently used in the U.S. stock market. By creating these algorithms, we allow existing crypto companies to scale, we allow new players to enter the space, and we allow mass adoption to take place by making cryptoassets into stable, liquid, easily tradable products.
By providing traders with powerful algorithmic execution technologies to work potentially enormous orders, hedge funds and other big institutions can safely trade without fear of market impact or other pitfalls that currently impede their ability to enter at the scales they require. Using Routefire, a trader can swiftly rebalance a multi-billion dollar crypto portfolio with the same precision and market impact minimization one would expect in a more mature market, like U.S. equities.
