  • The Engineers working at Chainalysis work on systems that are the highest fidelity of risk data within a crypto business. Our job is to bring transparency to the cryptocurrency ecosystem and build trust on blockchains. To do that, we build systems that detect fraud in real-time.

    A Senior Engineer on the KYT (Know Your Transaction) team will not only thrive on designing and implementing complex systems, but also operating and scaling them in production. They are a mentor who grows the skills of their teammates and rejoices in the ripple effects across the company.  We measure our success by how well we enable our customers to fight crime and meet compliance regulations.

    • We’ve modernized our stack and moved to a streaming architecture.

    • Experience building data pipelines and implementing event-driven architectures.
    • Built and managed production applications using JVM stack and Postgres
    • Experience in scaling/sharding of databases

    • JVM expertise. We mostly use Java but also appreciate other languages.
    • Have experience with Terraform and Kubernetes.
    • You appreciate the importance of team culture and have been an active contributor to a culture that thrives on giving first and the respect and diversity of opinions
    • Although not necessary, experience with Bitcoin or other digital currencies is a plus!
