The engineering team at Chainalysis is inspired by solving the hardest technical challenges and creating products that build trust in cryptocurrencies. We’re a global organization with teams in Denmark, UK, and the USA who thrive on the challenging work we do and doing it with other exceptionally talented teammates. Our industry changes every day and our job is to create user facing products supported by a flexible and scalable data platform allowing us to adapt to those rapid changes and bring value to our customers.

As a Software Engineer within Investigations, you’ll join a team of other engineers and share the responsibility of providing the right tools for the right data in order to build best in class customer experiences for our customers.

  • Build a scalable API service on AWS that handles up to 1000 requests per second

  • Help the team to modernize our stack to a streaming architecture

  • Debug production issues across multiple systems and microservices

We’re looking for candidates who have:

  • Led or played an instrumental role in designing and implementing cloud-native microservices-based distributed systems in a major cloud provider like AWS or GCP

  • Experience mentoring other engineers, leading cross-team projects, and driving design and technology decisions

  • A bias to ship and iterate alongside product management and design partners

  • Experience with object-oriented programming languages; we mostly use Java but appreciate a variety of languages!

  • A strong technical background with 8+ years of experience working directly on backend systems/ projects

  • A sense of great pride from materializing product ideas through production

Nice to have experience:
