Job Description

Do you self-identify as a Lead Full-Stack Engineer – Kotlin and a great problem solver (not just a coder)?
Have you been honing your innovation craft for years yet yearning for more complex challenges?
Does the opportunity to play a key role in the launch of a software platform with massive impact (for millions or even billions of people) excite you?
If you’ve answered with 3 resounding yeses, then we want to meet you!

What We Expect

We are a cutting-edge web3 infrastructure scale-up project seeking a few very talented developers who are not just looking for a job but want to be challenged to accomplish great things in an exciting venture.
We are the veterans of many successful startups and will put you on the accelerated learning curve toward your future success.
In the Lead Full-Stack Engineer – Kotlin role, you will be responsible for implementing novel features on the Freeport NFT platform, enhancing indexing pipelines, and integrating additional features into the data cloud tools. Additionally, you will support the current tools, addressing issues and aiding QA in automating tests.
We require a candidate willing to roll up their sleeves and take on new challenges, enabling us to advance our product development efforts towards creating machine learning-powered high-performance streaming microservices. These microservices process and analyse the data that our end-users encounter. This is an exceptional opportunity for someone with outstanding engineering skills and leadership abilities.

Our Ethos

We look for a few things across all hires we make at Cere, regardless of role or team:
  • We seek teammates who will thrive in our fast-paced work environment, where we default to methodical, simulation-driven, fast development iterations and a first-principle thinking mindset.
  • We crave teammates with high standards and strong discipline, embracing a growth mindset to continuously learn and incrementally improve habits and processes.
  • We require contributors to have excellent communication skills (esp. written), for everything must be well organized and tracked in Notion, Slack, Wiki’s, etc. We want autonomous, goal-oriented individuals who embrace transparency and accountability. No one wants to micro-manage others.
  • We need good teammates who are generally cool people who want to be part of a great team & decentralized community where everyone truly helps and challenges each other to learn/grow by innovating together towards greater shared goals. Embracing the building of such a collaborative community is the only way we can sustain rapid innovation (and the only way to live/work, really).

A bit more about our Multinational, High-Performance (and primarily remote) Team

Join a highly talented multicultural team that is based all over the world. We have offices in San Francisco, New York, Warsaw, Amsterdam, Berlin, and several locations in Asia. As stated above, we make remote working possible by embracing our ethos, yet many teams also travel to meet in person every 1-2 months.
