Posted on:

Orca is the most user-friendly AMM DEX on Solana. We’re looking for an engineering manager to lead a team that will build an entirely new mobile DeFi experience. As one of the leading DeFi protocols on Solana, Orca offers a unique chance to shape a growing ecosystem.

About our team:

  • A lean team of 12-15 senior contributors based across multiple time zones
  • Fully remote and location-agnostic (though we gather for epic retreats a few times a year—past locations have included New York, Singapore, and Lisbon!)
  • Passionate about bringing a human touch to DeFi

What you'll do:

  • Lead a team of (mostly senior) engineers, including people management, sprint planning, and code reviews
  • Write high-quality code to produce the best possible user experience
  • Work with our co-founders, Ori and Yutaro, to help shape the vision for the Orca protocol

What you bring:

  • Extensive experience building large-scale software applications
  • Comfort making technical decisions with minimal oversight
  • A desire to help your team members grow and flourish
  • Resonance with Orca’s brand values (professional, principled, and playful 🐳)
  • Excellent communication skills

Bonus points if you have...

  • Used Orca for swaps and/or liquidity provision
  • Participated in DeFi, especially the Solana ecosystem
  • An appreciation for cheesy marine puns

Details of the role

  • Base salary of at least 150,000 USDC / year + ORCA governance tokens, depending on experience
