Full Stack Platform Developer

Role Overview

We are developing a new type of network—a digital commonwealth. First, unlike dominant networks today, which lack purpose (and simply optimize for “engagement”) or advance dubious ends, its governance will be designed to advance the good of its members. Second, it will be built on a distributed credentialing system—a system designed to reveal and organize high-quality judgments from users of the network.

You will play a key role in creating this network, helping design and implement the technologies that shape it. Because of the early-stage nature of our company, you can expect your role to go beyond typical development work and include opportunities to help shape our processes, tools and technologies, including but not limited to Infrastructure-as-Code, DevSecOps, and Microservice-focused architecture patterns. This role will occasionally require periods of intense in-person collaborative effort, thus the role is limited to individuals permanently residing in, or willing to relocate to, the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
