I'm Fractal's CTO. I'm looking for a senior full-stack engineer to join our Fractal ID team. Fractal ID is a federated identity system, now transitioning to a self-sovereign identity system. It collects user information to verify their identities according to the compliance needs of our clients (mostly blockchain fintechs). Because these identities are reusable, we deliver fast frustration-free onboarding for users and high conversion rates for clients.

I'm looking for a resourceful generalist who is eager to build, grow, and succeed. Someone that's quick to evaluate trade-offs and own up to mistakes. Someone with senior-level, solid expertise with Ruby on Rails and React. Someone who keeps up with programming best practices: the field of software engineering is still new, we are constantly discovering new ways of doing things better, and I want someone who isn't stuck in how they did things 10 years ago.

Your education and years of experience aren't what's important to me: your skills are. What is critical is that you're able and willing — and excited — to progressively take up responsibility for a complex but well-architected software system with tight security requirements. I'm happy and experienced with fully remote work, and your working hours are flexible.

This will be hard — Fractal ID is a large system with a lot of moving parts, and we expect you to put in a lot of effort to take ownership fast and be able to work independently. If you're looking for a challenge that you can look back on and be proud of, this is it.

There's also a lot more to Fractal. We're a tight, passionate team who moves fast and gets things done. Last year, we started building the Fractal Protocol. It is an open source blockchain protocol to enable radical markets for data and designed to rebalance online advertising.

This is me: I'm driven, supportive, resilient, loyal, and good at what I do. Let me know what you think, and let's find out together how to make this work for the both of us.

Tech stack and practices:

  • Fractal ID's backends are written in Ruby on Rails, and the frontends in JavaScript/TypeScript and React. These are orchestrated as a microservice architecture on a multi-AZ AWS VPC.

  • Our infra is managed with Terraform, and leans heavily on ECS Fargate (Docker containers with Alpine Linux), RDS, S3 and SQS.

  • We like to live in bash and use git for version control. To lint and test, keep dependencies up to date, and do code reviews. To run a tight CI pipeline. To act responsibly with regards to security since we host a honeypot of personal data.
