Remote Full-time Developer with a passion for crypto and finance

Asymmetric Capital Remote
🗓  Fri, Jun 14 Blockchain Crypto Ethereum Fintech Non tech Distributed team Flexible/unlimited PTO

Asymmetric Capital is looking for a full-time developer who moves fast and has a passion for crypto and finance.

About us

Asymmetric Capital is a crypto-native investment startup with trad-fi DNA, targeting consistent returns of 80% annualized.

The partners previously cofounded a global top 20 crypto HFT trading firm that scaled to billions in average daily trading volume.

At our new firm Asymmetric, we scan the crypto markets to identify mispriced investment opportunities that have a great risk-return profile.

We apply the rigor of tradfi to capitalize on inefficiencies in nascent crypto markets.

Truth be told, a lot of what we do isn’t “trading”. 

One day we might be moving crypto into new pools and figuring out creative ways to stack farming rewards.

The next day we might be spinning up a team of 25 offshore virtual assistants to captain digital pirate ships that farm virtual gold.

On another day we might be building tech to market-make NFTs on Blur.

If it’s crypto and we can get in early with an edge – we’ll move quickly to capitalize and use tech to augment and scale when appropriate.

About the role

Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to help us scrape data and build automations to stay ahead of competitors. 

You’ll work to creatively scrape data quickly so we can get an info edge on the competition.

You’ll automate blockchain transactions across a variety of projects and protocols, through libraries like Ethers. You’ll connect to various trading venues to build pair trading scripts. You’ll build custom alerts to monitor price changes on new Dexes, and much more.

Some examples of recent projects:

  • Scraping points farming leaderboards to get data to develop an optimal farming strategy
  • Writing a script to automatically play a blockchain game
  • Automate a heuristic used to farm points on a new SoFi protocol
  • Integrating into CeFi/DeFi exchanges to execute funding arb trades

This is a full-time remote role. It will require at least a 4 hour time zone overlap with Hong Kong hours (7am-6pm UTC+8)

About you

If we could choose 1 word to describe the ideal candidate for this role, it’s “scrappy”. 

You’re a scrappy and creative technical problem solver - great at figuring out creative solutions and implementing them quickly.

You’ll move quickly - but with careful attention to detail. You enjoy the challenge of working on a variety of projects, using tech to help our trading team grow PnL.

You have:

  • 3+ years of experience working in crypto / defi
  • Experience building wrappers around web3 tech e.g. using a library like Ethers
  • A strong understanding of smart contracts and smart wallets
  • Experience using exchange APIs
  • Lots of experience with web scraping
  • Basic understanding of financial concepts
  • Passion for crypto finance

Other requirements:

  • You’re fast. Speed and ability to iterate quickly is our biggest priority. We often work on tasks that require a 24 hour turnaround.
  • Strong attention to detail 
  • Great communicator - you’ll be working directly with our head trader to gather data and build automations so you should be comfortable with lots of back-and-forth and iterations as you build.
  • Comfortable iterating and keeping things simple: we’d prefer 80% done in 1 day vs. 100% done in 2 days
  • Able to translate high level requirements into technical solutions - you won’t be handheld, you’ll be expected to understand the problem and work on your own to come up with the solution.
  • You’re good at smashing obstacles with creative solutions 

What We Bring to the Table

  • Compensation range: $72-$110k salary + performance bonus
  • 4 weeks PTO
  • Hands on learning + upside
  • An intense but fun environment where we live, eat, breathe crypto trading
  • Hands on learning 
  • Relocation stipend available
