BlockFi’s mission is to provide liquidity, transparency and efficiency to digital financial markets by creating products that meet the needs of consumers and corporations across the globe. We build bridges between traditional finance and digital markets that enable growth for all participants.

We are looking for senior frontend engineers to join our rapidly growing team. At BlockFi, we are focused on providing financial products – like interest bearing accounts and low-cost credit products – to the blockchain ecosystem.

Who We Need

We’re building out the products and services that power our business, and, as part of this, working on delivering rich, innovative, and dynamic experiences to our users. Our stack is largely React on the frontend, so yeah, you really need to know your stuff there, with a deep and strategic knowledge of front-end tools and technologies. You’ve definitely built out complex componentized applications, both by yourself, and as part of a larger team. We’re looking for people who can help us level-up our testing game (integration, unit, component). 

What You’ll Do

The product teams at BlockFi encompass UX, UI, Design, and Engineering in a seamless cohesive whole. As part of that product team, you will

  • Work closely with the Design Team to bring our product vision to life. While your focus will be on implementation, you care and think about how your work impacts the user experience.
  • Own the entire lifecycle for the components that you build, with these components ranging from features through products. 
  • Guide and coach your fellow engineers in your areas of expertise, and learn from them in theirs.
  • Write code that – a year from now – you’ll be able to look at and not wonder what on earth you were thinking.
  • Promote Reliability across all aspects of the system, and use the “Continuous Testing” part of CI/CD/CT to its fullest to help get there.

Above all, you should enjoy the journey. Our engineers are creative, technical, smart, and genuinely like each other. They enjoy the work they do, and so should you!
