Rook Labs is looking for a DeFi Bot Wrangler to join the team.

About Rook Labs

At Rook Labs, we believe the value in a transaction belongs to those who generate it.

We're creating a world where users and protocols own the surplus value their orders create and where financial services are powered entirely by it, rather than fees. A decentralized public good, governed by a DAO, that returns nearly all the profit back to its users.

Rook Labs is led by co-founder & CTO Joey Zacherl -- founder of the first market making bot on Ethereum, Volleyfire -- and comprised of top minds from DeFi, technology, research, and finance with backgrounds from Google, NASA, UBS, Citadel, Gemini, Apple, Shopify, Oxford, Harvard, Princeton, and Imperial College London.

We have deep experience in blockchain automation, MEV, and financial systems, and want to join with others like us, or teach the best candidates about this exciting area of modern finance.

Tired of fighting it out in the mempool? Are you an MEV expert but want to try being a buildooor? This is your place.

What you’ll do

  • Improve our trading execution engine that super-intelligently routes orders between exchanges.
  • Create high-level integrations to blockchain exchanges.
  • Create and modify trading strategies.
  • Create and build out state-of-the-art data collection and trade analysis infrastructure.
  • Make a significant impact in a rapidly growing blockchain startup.

Desired skills

  • Fluent in Python and prior experience in building python web applications.
  • Familiar with data engineering technologies such as relational databases, realtime data pipelines, batch processes, and data management tools such as DataDog.
  • Experienced in dev-ops or eager to learn best practices in deploying services such as Kubernetes and Docker.
  • Understand information and data security.
  • Thrive working with emerging technologies like blockchain with little/no documentation.

Compensation & Benefits

  • Competitive compensation: We will offer you highly competitive compensation, beating the largest technology companies and financial institutions on the planet.
  • Unlimited upside: You will receive a grant of ROOK based on today’s price, good for the next 3 years. This gives you unlimited upside while your work benefits Rook Labs.
  • No complicated vesting: ****The grant vests linearly and has only a 3-month “ramp up” period. The period may be waived for highly-qualified candidates.
  • Financial security: Because of our healthy, liquid treasury we won’t run out of money to pay you for the duration of your 3-year grant.
  • Equal pay for equal work: We don’t adapt compensation according to where you live. All incentives are set to reference amounts for the San Francisco Bay area, which are typically the highest in the world.
  • Work smarter, not harder: We let you work flexible hours - so you can design your ideal workday schedule - and take the time you need when you feel you need to take a break.
  • Compensate for lack of benefits: Rook Labs will account for the cost of missing benefits such as health insurance, 401(k) matching, vacation time, and the need to cover work-related expenses.
  • Work remotely: Live and work wherever you like.
  • Make a dent: We’re reimagining finance, and your work can make a meaningful impact in helping us shape a better, more open, inclusive and fairer financial system.
