Aptos is a people-first blockchain on a mission to help billions of people achieve universal and fair access to decentralized assets in a safe and scalable way.

Founded by some of the original creators and maintainers that researched, designed, and built the Diem blockchain to serve this purpose, we have dedicated several years toward this mission. We believe the open-source Diem technology we have developed is an important foundation of a safe and scalable web3 world where everyone has more equitable opportunities to grow and access financial assets with lower fees and fewer intermediaries.

Aptos (Ohlone for "The People") encompasses our mission and ethos for why we build.

About The Role

We are looking for a passionate and experienced Blockchain Dev Infra Engineer to join our team. A blockchain is a highly complex distributed system. Also, a blockchain must provide absolute SLAs regarding data correctness and availability and, as such, requires custom-built frameworks to bring certainty into the operations.

The blockchain dev-infra role will work closely with our PE team to ensure -

  • Developer Productivity - Build efficient CI/CD, test frameworks, benchmarking, and debugging tools to enable faster iterations.
  • Reliability - replicate real-world network scenarios and simulate failures. Enable stronger guarantees on the system SLAs and prevent breakage due to changes.
  • Efficiency - build benchmarks and provide tooling that identifies low-level system efficiency opportunities. Enable one-click load tests to ensure consistency of throughput and latency under realistic workloads. The team at Aptos Labs is on a mission to build the highest-throughput blockchain and will require innovative frameworks to ensure the system's performance.

What you'll be doing:

  • Build and enhance the test frameworks that enable module-level testing. Isolate different components of the system and run tests that ensure individual module success (for example, consensus, networking, state-sync etc)
  • Enable CI/CD pipelines that ensure all the changes are thoroughly tested and minimize the chances of regressions.
  • Enable one-click load tests that can spin up 100s or nodes globally with various configurations. Simulate real-world network conditions and chaos testing.
  • Build tooling to replay transactions from mainnet/ testnet to a smaller test environment.
  • Build automation and visibility into the system test frameworks.

What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience as a software engineer
  • Strong appreciation for automation and tooling.
  • Experience building release or performance tooling and automation
  • Experience building CI/CD pipelines
  • Previous experience building/scaling infrastructure
  • Nice to have: data visualization and observability tooling experience
  • Be able to proactively manage prioritization of work and deliver work with great quality and influence the broader team in creating leverage
  • Passion to initiate and lead projects to completion in a fast-paced, ever-changing, start-up environment
