role overview

As a Release Engineer, you will stand at the intersection of our Infrastructure, Core, and QA teams, overseeing all parts of the release process for all Chainlink services and tools.

This high-visibility role is perfect for a person with substantial CI/CD knowledge and exceptional communication skills, passionate about shipping great products and creating product impact.

We are distributed across time zones and continents, and we embrace remote work.


  • Lead the cross-team release process and see it to completion, ensuring efficient collaboration between Core, QA, and Infrastructure teams
  • Build and improve CI/CD pipelines for all parts of the Chainlink ecosystem, including Chainlink builds, adapters, and external-facing services
  • Create and maintain documentation and playbooks for the release processes of Chainlink and Chainlink-adjacent tools and services
  • Increase developer velocity by identifying areas of improvement in all parts of our software development life cycle and implementing necessary changes


  • 2+ years of experience in DevOps, SRE, and software engineering roles. You have worked in a DevOps or SRE team and are comfortable with most parts of our infrastructure stack (below).
  • Knowledge of CI/CD pipelines and build tools. You are familiar with build and deploy pipelines and ideally have experience with creating new pipelines.
  • Strong automation knowledge. You have experience with writing shell scripts and programming languages such as Python, Node.js, Golang, or similar.
  • Excellent communication skills. You have coordinated critical initiatives across several teams in a fully remote environment.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Excitement for blockchain, Web 3.0, and similar decentralized technologies
  • Experience with Chainlink as a developer or a node operator is a big plus
  • Experience working remotely in a distributed team.
  • We are giving slight preference to candidates who live in the UTC-7 to UTC-4 range due to the location of people whose work you will coordinate, but we can make most time zones work

Tech Stack:

  • AWS; Terraform/Terragrunt; Kubernetes, Calico and ArgoCD; Prometheus and Grafana; GitHub Actions; Packer
