Where does Balancer fit in DeFi?

Job Description

Balancer Labs is a DeFi protocol, so decentralization of all aspects of the protocol, including the frontend, is a priority. Over the next year, this team will build the foundational products and services required to decentralize access to the Balancer protocol.

We’re looking for people that have a strong user-focused mindset with an interest in solving the new problems that exist in the Web3 space. You’re comfortable working in an open-source environment with lots of moving pieces, give attention to detail, and have a curiosity for learning new technologies and systems.

You will:

  • Build user-facing experiences for accessing and interacting with the Balancer protocol.
  • Work closely with designers, engineers, and other product owners in the Balancer ecosystem.
  • Be responsible for planning and architecting new and existing systems that tie together the various elements that make up a Web3 app in a clean and modular way.

You may be a fit for this role if you:

  • Have extensive experience working in JavaScript/TypeScript-based systems.
  • Have extensive experience working with Vue, React or Angular.
  • Experience as a core member of a software development team with significant contributions.
  • OOP development experience.
  • An interest or passion for working on DeFi protocols.
  • Have some experience with ethers.js, GraphQL and Solidity, but these are not essential.

The ideal candidate will probably be a mid-level to senior frontend developer that is either of the following:

  • A Vue developer with Web3 experience (+++)
  • A Vue developer without Web3 experience (++)
  • A React or Angular developer with extensive/professional Web3 experience (+)

We are focused on building a diverse and inclusive workforce. If you’re excited about this role, but do not meet 100% of the qualifications listed above, we encourage you to apply.
