Remote Incident Responder

LinkPool Remote

LinkPool is a leading validator, oracle provider, infrastructure services and ecosystem developer within the Chainlink ecosystem and wider Web3 industry.

Since 2017, LinkPool has been pioneering modern infrastructure tooling to set precedent and help build an industry that shapes how agreements are formed and settled across all industries. With LinkPool being one of the largest Chainlink Node Operators since its launch in 2019, it is in a unique position to work with and operate across most networks, projects and teams to build its knowledge and help drive the ecosystem forward.

LinkPool is a globally distributed team, and all roles are fully remote.

The Role:

As an Incident Responder at LinkPool, you’ll be the first to join a newly created 24/7 team designed for round the clock support and maintenance of our modern infrastructure. You’ll work closely with the founder and infrastructure engineers to define a new company function with the goal to maintain high-standards in uptime and reliability. You’ll gain extensive experience in monitoring and maintaining infrastructure that covers most major L1 and L2 chains, while gaining valuable experience in overall infrastructure management by working closely with experienced team members.

You’ll work across our full stack of infrastructure, from creating and maintaining Chainlink nodes, blockchain full nodes, validators, monitoring stack and our Kubernetes cluster setup. As well as this, you will be the first to respond to any incidents that are raised through our monitoring stack, fixing and escalating where needed.

LinkPool’s infrastructure is fully containerised and fully collocated with wholly owned hardware that we solely manage. This is a unique opportunity to use cutting edge tooling on infrastructure wholly owned without the burden of dealing with cloud pricing.
