Full Time, 60k - 140k USD yearly Remote
Middle Developer (over 3 years of working experience) Blockchain

Luxor specializes in the physical delivery of hashrate (compute power). Over the past three years we have been acting as a buyer of hashrate, purchasing, and mining over $45mm worth. We currently have 35,000 machines that sell us their hashrate daily.

Company Background

We fundamentally believe that compute power itself is a commodity and we want to build out traditional marketplaces and derivates for it.

We are building a spot-market for hashrate, not dissimilar to a compute-power version of Henry Hub. After this is completed we will begin building incredibly powerful and interesting derivative products on the value of hashrate.

You will develop the technical design for either cloud or on-premises solutions. Also, influence designs across R&D using original research and advanced analysis. You’ll design solutions for business critical and highly complex engineering projects by applying extensive domain expertise in performance testing. You’ll provide oversight of code and design reviews, and ensure features are delivered to meet business and quality requirements.

Our teams own mission-critical aspects of a rapidly growing, globally distributed platform (eg: Hashrate Marketplace and 15 unique mining pools), in the cloud, and, as such, you will have an incredible amount of impact on the current state and future direction of our product, with visibility throughout the organization and a significant opportunity to take ownership.

This role will report directly to the CTO. This is a remote role. The ideal candidate is based between UTC-8 and UTC-3 timezones.

Luxor Technologies was founded by software engineers that felt the blockchain industry lacked in available infrastructure. Additionally, software to support the rapidly growing mining space often weren't very good, or simply didn't exist.

Since then, the Luxor team has built a range of solutions for scaling blockchain infrastructure, including a globally distributed mining pool, a hashrate network-switching engine, and a wide variety of blockchain software ranging from blockchain explorers to an ASIC management platform.

We strongly believe that classical Nakamoto consensus (Proof-of-Work) is the only proven and tested way to secure a decentralized platform. The future of decentralized finance will require responsible guardians that can efficiently harness energy in order to maintain the security of a network. We are focused on vertically integrating mining pools and enterprise-grade management software to provide investors a full-service investment vehicle for cryptocurrency mining.
