Job Overview

At Anchorage Digital we are building the world’s most advanced digital asset platform for institutions to participate in crypto.


Founded in 2017, Anchorage Digital is a regulated crypto platform that provides institutions with integrated financial services and infrastructure solutions. With the first federally chartered crypto bank in the US, Anchorage Digital offers institutions an unparalleled combination of secure custody, regulatory compliance, product breadth, and client service. We’re looking to diversify our team with people who are humble, creative, and eager to learn.

We are a remote friendly, global team, but provide the option of working in-office in San Francisco, New York City, Indianapolis, Sioux Falls, Porto, and Singapore.

The team you’ll work with
The mission of the Platform Engineering team is to provide a robust infrastructural foundation to promote reliability, scalability, performance and developer velocity at Anchorage Digital. This team owns various infrastructure components including cloud infrastructure (e.g. gke, terraform), continuous integration and testing, continuous delivery/deployment.

The impact
This is a force-multiplier development role that allows a developer to have an impact broadly across Anchorage Digital engineering. Internal developers will appreciate a well functioning build pipeline that allows them to get their code to production smoothly. The business and Anchorage Digital's customers will appreciate a reliable, secure runtime infrastructure as that is a core competency of the Anchorage Digital ecosystem and value proposition. The role has cross-team exposure which allows for interesting work and professional growth.

The problems you'll solve

  • Design and build a globally distributed hybrid-infrastructure with an emphasis on high stakes security and correctness.
  • Manage GCP while maintaining secure channels with our on-prem data centers.
  • Leverage the following methodologies/tech: Reverse uptime, tamper-resistant ledgers, air-gapped infrastructure, secure execution environments, repeatable builds, container orchestration, and infra-as-code.
  • Review code across the entire stack and engineering organization while actively participating in product development.
  • Find the right balance between progress (i.e. shipping quickly) and perfection (i.e. measuring twice).
  • Foster an efficient deterministic testing culture, with an emphasis on minimizing tech debt and bureaucracy.
  • Work on the front lines of the blockchain/crypto movement and SecOps innovation.
You may be a fit for this role if
You have experience with one of the major cloud providers (ideally GCP and/or AWS) and config management tools like Puppet, Ansible, Chef, etc. You care deeply about correctness, security, code quality, and test infrastructure. You enjoy programming, infra-as-code, monitoring, and automation.

Although not a requirement, bonus points if
You feel comfortable diving down the stack and into open source projects to root cause a bug. In your mind the word “crypto” stands for cryptography, not cryptocurrency. You were emotionally moved by the soundtrack to Hamilton, which chronicles the founding of a new financial system. :)

Tech stack:
While experience with specific languages isn’t a requirement our stack is the below.
Big Data Tech: BigQuery, Looker, Python, Airflow
Backend Tech: Go, Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, GCP, REST and GraphQL.
Engineering methodologies: Reverse uptime, cryptographically linked data models, air gapped infrastructure, secure execution environments, and infra-as-code.

About Anchorage Digital: Who we are

The Anchorage Village, what we call our team, brings together the brightest minds from platform security, financial services, and distributed ledger technology to provide the building blocks that empower institutions to safely participate in the evolving digital asset ecosystem. As a diverse team of more than 300 members, we are united in one common goal: building the future of finance by providing the foundation upon which value moves safely in the new global economy.

Anchorage Digital is committed to being a welcoming and inclusive workplace for everyone, and we are intentional about making sure people feel respected, supported and connected at work—regardless of who you are or where you come from. We value and celebrate our differences and we believe being open about who we are allows us to do the best work of our lives.
