What is the job?
No matter how powerful and flexible you build a platform, at the end of the day it’s the tools you present to the user that define the experience. RDX Works is seeking a savvy team lead with extensive mobile development experience to come build the experiences that will define the future of decentralized finance (DeFi).
RDX Works is in the midst of a complete rethink of what the DeFi user experience ought to be, and we need a strong hand at the helm to steer a team of incredibly talented developers and designers through delivery of a world-beating product.
Starting out, you will absorb the research, design, and user testing which has taken place over the last year, then add your insight as we settle a few remaining decisions before coming to an implementation plan. You will manage the buildout and testing of multiple applications, contribute code when needed, and find the right compromises to ensure a successful, on-schedule delivery.
What are we looking for?
You have released and maintained consumer-facing applications in the past; your experience is not limited to internal business applications.
You like to run development teams. You know that there’s no single right way to do it, and you have developed a sense of the things which usually work well and the things which usually don’t.
You are comfortable with setting a product schedule and making appropriate compromises to adhere to it.
You are familiar with the release process of mobile applications on both iOS and Android, understand how to manage testing on both, and know where delays can occur.
You’re able to isolate the 90% case for user experiences. You think in terms of making the most common interactions effortless, rather than making anything possible.
You are intelligent and learn quickly.
You are a confident, prolific coder with experience in a variety of languages.
What do you need?
6+ years as a professional software developer, with at least 2 in a team lead role.
Experience with releasing mobile applications on iOS and Android.
Some history as a consumer of DeFi; familiarity with the current web3 user experience is a big plus. E.g., MetaMask, WalletConnect, etc.
Being noddingly familiar with the practical aspects of asymmetric cryptography and zero-knowledge proofs will greatly accelerate you up the learning curve. The theoretical underpinnings are less important for this role than the practical applications of said theory.
Who are we?
At RDX Works, we're a team of like-minded thinkers who have long been convinced that we're living in the earliest stages of a global financial revolution. This revolution is being fueled by decentralized finance (or DeFi for short), which is enabling an assortment of pioneering developers and entrepreneurs to re-invent almost every financial product that is currently traded and invested in traditional markets, without requiring central authorities or siloed infrastructure. DeFi has captured a great deal of attention and investment in the crypto-aware niche, growing assets under management from $1 billion to over $200 billion in a few years. Impressive as its growth has been, its current market size isn't even a rounding error on the over $400 trillion held in traditional finance. We're focused on what it will take to go from billions to trillions.
RDX went back to first principles to come up with the right technical solution—the first layer-one protocol built specifically for mainstream DeFi—and we have already tested out at over 1 million transactions per second. We're keenly aware that the need for an infinitely scalable platform is only one prerequisite among many for mass adoption, and we're also blazing new ground in the areas of purpose-built developer tools, user experiences, and regulatory integration.
We have forged a path deep into the future of what distributed ledger technology is going to look like and we need you to come and be part of the team that is making that happen right now.
