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.

You Will:

  • Build secure, resilient, and global infrastructure from the ground up!
  • 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.
  • Influence architecture/product roadmap - have a seat at the table.
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with everyone.
  • Help scale the team.
  • Work on the front lines of the blockchain/crypto movement and SecOps innovation.
  • Ship code that will impact the global economy.

You may be a fit for this role if:

  • You have real world experience building complex distributed systems.
  • You enjoy building services from scratch and supporting them over a meaningful period of time.
  • You have a deep appreciation for code quality and test infrastructure.
  • You prioritize end-user experience and business value over “cool tech.”
  • You have developed “computer science fundamentals”, i.e. concurrency, algorithms, and data structures (Formal CS degree NOT required).
  • You self describe as some combination of the following: creative, humble, ambitious, detail-oriented, hardworking, trustworthy, eager to learn, methodical, action-oriented, and tenacious.

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 read blockchain protocol white papers for fun, and stay up to date with the proliferation of cryptoasset innovations.
  • You have a background in the finance industry.
  • You were emotionally moved by the soundtrack to Hamilton, which chronicles the founding of a new financial system. :)

Tech stack:

  • Backend Tech: Go, C, Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, Vault, GCP, AWS, C++ and GraphQL.
  • Frontend Tech: ReactJS, Flow, TypeScript, CSS Modules, Jest, and Cypress.
  • Mobile Tech: Swift, RxSwift, CocoaPods, and Secure Enclave.
  • Engineering Methodologies: Reverse uptime, cryptographically linked data models, tamper resistant ledgers, air gapped infrastructure, secure execution environments, container orchestration, repeatable builds, and infra-as-code.
