About Paxos

Paxos is a financial technology company delivering blockchain solutions for global financial institutions.

Job Description

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our rapidly growing engineering team. Our current team is made up of 40+ engineers, with a range of experience in startups and technologies. Senior Software Engineers are responsible for building, implementing and scaling key features of Paxos’ products, and will influence technical decisions that impact our code-base.  Every engineer, despite seniority, has the ability and opportunity to influence our product strategy by helping define the product features, refine system architecture, and spearhead best practices that enable a high quality product. A commitment to teamwork, hustle, and strong communication skills are absolute requirements.  

Paxos Settlement Service is a platform that is transforming settlement in the world’s largest equities marketplace. This $34 trillion market of US equities has operated on the same outdated technology for nearly 50 years. The Paxos platform enables participants to massively reduce the cost of settling equities trades. Paxos is achieving this revolutionary feat through its unique position as a regulated institution trusted within the traditional system while simultaneously pioneering modern technology. This new approach has been actively covered by major US press:

Wall Street Journal



Being a part of this initiative you will be instrumental in bringing the current pilot into the future as a scalable solution that brings competition to the US Equities settlement market for the first time in nearly 50 years. If you are an advocate of change and are interested in street side settlement operations or technology with MQ, SWIFT, and FIX interfaces then our platform may be the gateway to the future for you.

Paxos uses a mix of open source and commercial technologies to build our products, such as: Kotlin, React.js/TypeScript, Kubernetes, Terraform, Hashicorp Vault, and Postgres. We connect to financial institutions using technologies such as FIX, IBM MQ, and SWIFT.

What You’ll Work On

  • Partner with product managers, security engineers, and our operations team to roll out secure and scalable products
  • Senior Engineers contribute to more than our product – they build up our team. Through a combination of mentoring and technical leadership, they make others better and raise the bar for all around them. 

We look for Senior Software Engineers who: 

  • 5+ years of software development experience
  • Are technical experts in at least one domain like Distributed Systems, Cryptography, Databases, or AWS
  • Demonstrate a solid understanding of core engineering concepts including data structures, design best practices, run-time optimizations, and algorithmic complexity 
  • Can understand and articulate the architecture of an entire system, including the technical trade-offs between different design implementations
  • Are eager to work openly and collaboratively with a diverse team and are willing to mentor more junior members of the team
  • Collaborate effectively with stakeholders across the company 
  • Constantly seek to learn new technologies and better ways to solve engineering challenges

 What We Offer: 

  • Competitive salaries and flexible work life balance 
  • Equity share in a growing business 
  • Unlimited PTO 
  • A full slate of benefits coverage including: medical, dental, vision, and pre-tax commuter benefits, gym reimbursements 
  • A kitchen fully stocked with snacks and beverages 
  • A fun, vibrant office environment in the Flatiron District with a smart and passionate team doing incredible things to modernize Finance.
