About Caldera

Caldera enables dynamic, scalable blockchain experiences. Currently, dapps that are deployed to general-purpose blockchains compete with thousands of other applications for space on the network — this can lead to congestion and high fees or even network outages.

That’s where we come in. We’re building software that makes it easy for the most innovative blockchain applications to launch their own ultra-performant blockchains (rollups), enabling applications to own their ecosystem, scale to millions of users, and provide a superior user experience to their players.

We’re backed by some of the best investors in the valley and offer competitive pay, an equity grant in the company, and full benefits! Our team is primarily located in San Francisco, and work in-person from the Financial District.

Product Values

In order to successfully ship deliverables that make our customers and teammates happy, we build with the following themes in mind:

🎨 Love the Craft

Our deliverables always reach an audience. Whether it’s a high-value customer or your fellow teammates, you should be proud that your work is having an impact on others and hold yourself and others to a high standard.

🏗️ Build Foundations

We believe you can ship fast with quality and the way to do that is with strong foundations. This means that we do not compromise on user or developer experience for the sake of speed. Instead we plan ahead, set realistic goals, and build with the future in mind.

🏆 Win Together

Ultimately, we are all on the same team and are all striving towards the same goal. We work together to make things happen and we don’t quit.

The Role

Firstly, it is not a requirement that you have experience with blockchain. However, you should be interested to learn more about the space and prepared to dive deep into solving blockchain problems at the product level. If you’re curious what this entails, please apply and ask!

As a Product Software Engineer, you will:

  • Take ownership, build, and ship end-to-end user-facing projects

  • Improve the user experience with new features and responding to customer feedback

  • Architect core systems that allow us to extend our product offerings in a scaleable way

  • Work with your team to deliver features that will impact users around the world

  • Be a part of the discussions that help shape the future of the product, the team, and our company

You might be a good fit for this role if you:

  • Are passionate about building user-facing products with a high standard for user experience

  • Have experience building complex, full-stack web applications

  • Have an eye for design, pay attention to the details, and advocate for the user's perspective

  • Have built complex backend services

  • Have experience developing with technologies such as Typescript, React, GraphQL, Node, Next.js, Golang, and/or Python

  • Comfortable working with cloud service providers (ex. AWS, GCP) and creating/interfacing with backend services

  • Are a self-motivated engineer with ambitious goals

Bonus points if you…

  • Are a passionate user of web3 apps

  • Have built Ethereum “dapps” with Solidity or Yul

  • Have used ethereum client libraries (eg. ethers.js or web3.js) in the past

  • Are familiar with how blockchains like Ethereum or Bitcoin work under the hood

  • Are up-to-date with Ethereum scaling solutions such as sidechains or rollups

  • Have significant open-source contributions, especially in frontend frameworks, web servers, UI libraries, or other web technologies
