About the Company

Gemini is a global crypto and Web3 platform founded by Tyler Winklevoss and Cameron Winklevoss in 2014. Gemini offers a wide range of crypto products and services for individuals and institutions in over 70 countries.

Crypto is about giving you greater choice, independence, and opportunity. We are here to help you on your journey. We build crypto products that are simple, elegant, and secure. Whether you are an individual or an institution, we help you buy, sell, and store your bitcoin and cryptocurrency.

At Gemini, our mission is to unlock the next era of financial, creative, and personal freedom.

In the United States, we have a flexible hybrid work policy for employees who live within 30 miles of our office headquartered in New York City and our office in Seattle. Employees within the New York and Seattle metropolitan areas are expected to work from the designated office twice a week, unless there is a job-specific requirement to be in the office every workday. Employees outside of these areas are considered part of our remote-first workforce. We believe our hybrid approach for those near our NYC and Seattle offices increases productivity through more in-person collaboration where possible.

The Department: Consumer Experience

The Role: Senior Software Engineer (Backend)

As a Senior Engineer, you’ll help solve complex problems that will directly influence the direction of the digital asset space. We are a team of self-starters, self-driven owners. There’s a wide range of problems to solve at Gemini – from properly securing millions of dollars worth of customer funds, to developing innovative new blockchain products, to building highly-available and high-scale systems on the cloud, to building anomaly detection models to identify risky behavior. We have a strong culture of code reviews, and a focus on security, with the end goal of writing and shipping high-quality code by getting things right the first time. We want to continue building the best product we can as we scale and grow our business. If you get excited about solving technical challenges that directly impact our customers, clients, and the rest of the Gemini team, we’d love to hear from you.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop new products and product features on the Gemini platform, as part of a tight knit team of about eight developers, as well document designs.
  • Collaborate with product managers, designers, and other engineers to design and deliver high-quality features on the website.
  • Build efficient and reusable UI components and architect reliable, performant, and maintainable solutions. Review other software engineers’ code for correctness, style, and information security concerns.
  • Author high quality code, and review other software engineers’ code for correctness, style, and information security concerns.
  • Improve the performance, maintainability, and operations of the Gemini code base by engaging in occasional refactoring and upgrade projects.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • At least 6 years of software engineering experience.
  • Building micro-services in the cloud (AWS, Azure etc) and building high-available services at scale.
  • Advanced proficiency in at least one programming language like Java, Scala, or Kotlin. We use mostly Scala on our backend and Typescript on the frontend – it’s great if you’re comfortable or if you’re willing to learn.
  • The ability to work closely across teams (and time-zones) and manage dependencies.
  • A customer and product-focused mindset, with the ability to make well-reasoned tradeoffs between speed and quality.
  • The ability to adapt and handle multiple competing priorities in collaboration with peers.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Work experience or knowledge of the finance industry, payments, trading and/or exchange systems.
  • Demonstrated expertise in full-stack product development.
