What we're looking for

We are looking for an experienced Backend Engineer to help us build out the backend of our NFT marketplace and serve as the leader for backend engineering expertise.

🥐 About us

Sloika is a photography NFT marketplace and community. We believe that photography and visual storytelling are at the center of human culture. It has the power to end wars, change the perspective on history, and even how the human race views itself. The past and future of photography bring iconic moments that will stay with us forever.
The NFTs have revolutionized how creators and collectors see the artwork, and we believe in driving this innovation globally. Our goal at Sloika is to create tools for all photographers to collaborate, publish their work, and connect with collectors. Since launching our alpha in September, we have launched 500 photography series and brought our creators $700,000 in revenue.
We are a distributed team and an equal opportunity employer. As an early-stage startup employee, you will work in a loosely structured environment where you can make important decisions fast. We offer an exciting and challenging opportunity to change the world of photography with the founding team that previously built 500px.
🏳️‍🌈
Diversity. We welcome applicants of all backgrounds.
🥽
Accessibility. This role is remote, and we try to accommodate for accessibility.
🎨
Commitment. We are looking for full-time and project-based professionals.

👋 About you

The ideal candidate has a proven ability to design, implement, and maintain complex backend systems, a deep understanding of modern server-side stack, and a desire to dive into the world of dapps and other blockchain-based projects.

Responsibilities

Develop and maintain robust backend systems for Sloika’s photography NFT marketplace and creator tooling.
Own the work from problem definition to production.
Collaborate with a product manager and frontend and smart contract engineers to deliver a robust, error-free, scalable solution.
Collaborate with other front-end developers to define the application architecture and drive architectural goals that improve code quality and developer productivity.
Mentor other engineers and contribute to the direction of the team.

Qualifications

5+ years of experience in the industry.
Proven ability to architect, develop, and maintain complex backend systems, including data.
Ability to identify ways to quickly prototype complex ideas, breaking down the work into components and milestones that other engineers can easily pick up.
Good spoken and written English: we are a multi-national team, but English is our official language of communication.

Preferred extras

Prior production experience designing database models and APIs.
Prior experience with TypeScript, Node.js, Next.js, REST or GraphQL APIs, serverless functions (e.g., Google Cloud Functions or Cloudflare Workers), and large media file processing and storage.
Experience working with distributed systems.
Development experience with blockchains (especially Ethereum and EVM-based chains), web3 and dapps — personal projects are welcome!
Prior startup experience would be an asset.

Perks & Benefits

⌚️ Flexible work hours. We are a fully-distributed team, which means we operate across time zones. You can choose your own work hours — we care about the quality of work, not the number of hours you spend in front of the screen
🌎 Work from wherever makes you most productive. We'll find places and time to meet and connect once in a while — on a beach, at a conference, or on a road trip
🗓 Full-time employees take a minimum of 3 weeks of paid vacation, in addition to statutory holidays across several countries (take Canadian Thanksgiving off even if you are in Europe)
🛫 We are a young company, so we do things a little differently. We'll meet up annually or semi-annually at various locations around the world, most expenses paid
❤️ We are building an inclusive culture, and we are happy to add and refine our benefits based on our team's interests
🪙 Receive payments in fiat or Ethereum
