job details

Role Overview

As a Senior Backend Engineer you'll help us to gather and organize data and building a foundation for our smart routing backend and thus, core product. You'll aggregate data from the most important protocols in Web 3 - DEXes, DEX aggregators and bridges across multiple blockchain ecosystems.


  • You'll gather and analyze pricing information across many core protocols in decentralized finance
  • You'll help planning and building our core data & data processing architecture
  • You'll provide a clean API for other developers and our frontends
  • You'll build out infrastructure to connect with different blockchains and interact with their APIs


  • 4+ years of Typescript and Node.js development experience
  • Solid knowledge of the blockchain space, DeFi protocols and the EVM
  • Interest in the cross-chain landscape of bridges and DEXes
  • A communicative team player - we avoid meetings as much as possible, but we expect transparent and pro-active communication and offer full freedom in return
  • Drive to write modular, readable code and think about scalability
  • Ideally some interest in or first experience with Rust, Go or Solidity

Culture & Perks

  • Empowered teams

We take the best person with the right skills, then inspire them to use them! We trust our team and give them the space and ownership to excel and achieve.

  • Flexible time management

We believe work should adapt to your life, not the other way around. We only schedule a few fixed meetings every week – you're free to arrange the rest of your time as you like.

  • Inclusive culture

It’s our priority to make our whole team feel included, appreciated and respected. Our global, culturally diverse team is our most important asset.

  • Remote-friendly

We’re a fully remote, global company. As long as you’re not on Mars (the WiFi is terrible we heard), being part of our team from the comfort of your own home works perfectly well for us.

  • Retreats and team building

At least once a year we invite the global team to an in-person retreat at a beautiful location (most likely Thailand at the beginning of 2023).

About Us

LIFI is a cross-chain liquidity aggregation protocol and is building a crucial infrastructure piece for the mass-adoption of blockchains. Abstracting away DeFi and making it available as API and widget to the dapplication layer, empowers developers to focus on what is truly important: building value bringing, decentralized applications for the consumer. LIFI allows limitless, cross-chain any-to-any swaps from anywhere, directly into the dapps.

We are a passionate young team on the mission to enable a fairer, more decentralized world. To do so we are building a crucial piece of cross-chain infrastructure to enable multiple blockchains to coexist and serve different needs. Apart from the tech we care a lot about user experience and aim to make complex technologies accessible for everyone.
