Back-End Developer with Node.js experience (Solana Beach)




Staking Facilities is looking for a back-end with strong Node.js, C++, and/or Rust experience to support our Solana Beach team. You will be responsible for researching, drafting, and implementing new features as well as improving existing components. A core responsibility will be to develop, design, and maintain our software architecture.

Solana Beach is a premier blockchain explorer service for Solana. We provide advanced on-chain analytics available on Solana - and we intend to keep refining and extending our product offering. Our team is international, diverse, fun-loving, and highly motivated to grow Solana Beach into the ‘Etherscan of Solana’.

We think this role would best fit a software architect that is passionate about optimizing the performance and efficiency of data processing pipelines. We are looking for someone with a forward-thinking and entrepreneurial mindset. We’re looking for someone who can take ownership of their own work and drive features along independently. Our back-end is built in Node.js, so we would like you to have either a strong background in Node.js or a very strong background in similar back-end frameworks.

Previous blockchain experience would be very exciting but is not required. We think this role could be a great place for the right person to transition into working on the cutting-edge frontier of crypto - we can teach you everything you need to know on that end.
