Position Role: Engineering

Position Level: Internship

Position Type: Full-time

Position Location: Toronto, ON

Application Deadline: 2018-04-30

Position Overview:

NextGen Blockchain Technologies is focused on building the cryptocurrency intelligence platform of the future. Currently, cryptocurrency data is hard to trust, quantitative analysis is under-developed, and cryptoeconomics are not well understood. We’re building an intelligence platform that brings it all together to allow sophisticated investors make the best decisions.

As a company, we’ve already raised $4m in funding. We have a top notch understanding of cryptocurrencies, an open mind for adapting technologies and ideas, and a small tight-knit team that is dedicated to delivering the best insight into the cryptocurrency market.

As a co-op at NextGen, you’ll be leading the charge in developing our institutional intelligence platform. You’ll work with the co-founders to build the platform from the ground-up. In this particular role, you’ll be the owner and sole developer of a real-time cryptocurrency portfolio tracker that links to exchanges and offline wallets and integrates with our stack.

About you:
  • You’re great at designing SPAs in a leading front-end framework like React.
  • You possess a strong design aesthetic (if you have a portfolio we can look at, that’s a plus!)
  • You have experience building modular server-side APIs.
  • You’re familiar with functional programming techniques and ideas.
  • You take ownership of your work, take initiative, and ask questions when you are lost.
  • You’re tenacious: you learn a lot very quickly and you don’t give up until it works.
  • You have experience with the “other parts” of building a modern web-app: authentication/authorization, security, deployment, monitoring, and integration with AWS.
  • You’re interested or curious about cryptocurrencies and blockchain
A typical day looks like:
  • Writing code shoulder-to-shoulder with the co-founders
  • Two to three meals with the whole team
  • Debates on the future of the blockchain and cryptocurrencies
  • Research talks about different cryptocurrencies and their viability
Nice-to-haves, but not necessary:
  • Experience with Scala or another functional-focused programming language
  • Technical knowledge of how cryptocurrencies work under the hood

Please not that applicants must be returning to school in Fall of 2018 as this position only open to current undergraduates.
