About Argent

Join us as we reimagine the future of money and the internet. Our mission is to make them more open and fair, driving new economic opportunities and putting people in control of their digital lives.

To start we've built the first crypto wallet with the simplicity and security of the best new bank apps - yet we never hold users’ assets. It takes the complexity out of Ethereum and is driven by our dedication to user experience.

We launched in 2018 and have a world-class team with experience scaling mobile apps to tens of millions of users. Our eclectic backgrounds include PhDs in nuclear physics and quantum cryptography. We’re fortunate to be backed by the top VCs in Europe, including Index Ventures, Creandum and firstminute capital.

The Senior Javascript Engineer role

You'll lead the development of several important areas:

First, the Argent Security Center. A core part of the Argent experience, this web application helps to secure our users' data. It's a customer facing React app that interacts with the Ethereum blockchain and our own backend services.

Second, the Argent Javascript SDK. You'll develop, publish and maintain this product. This is a vital part of how we'll help millions of people access a new, decentralized internet.

Third, out Internal Dashboard. We have an internal view to help solve customer issues and keep our engineering team happy when debugging (also in React).

You'll have extensive experience building and maintaining web products and be fluent in JavaScript. Ideally you'll also have some experience of Ethereum JS libraries. In the role you'll work closely with the founders and a small team of highly skilled and experienced engineers and designers.

Requirements

  • 5+ years experience with building and maintaining web products
  • Fluent in JavaScript/Typescript and its functional style
  • Solid understanding of Javascript frameworks such as React/Vue
  • Experience with Ethereum JS libraries (web3js, ethers.js, ...)
  • Experience with Node.js
  • Fluency in written and spoken English

How we work

We work remotely, transparently and balance Argent with the rest of our lives. We’ve all got loved ones with unpredictable schedules, be they kids or cats.

Although we’re a distributed team you'll need to be based in the UK or Europe. This is because we find communication much easier when we’re in similar time zones and a short flight away. Within Europe you can choose to work wherever you like!

We get together for a week every quarter so we can collaborate in person, explore new solutions, and have fun. So far we’ve been to Nice, Toulouse, Brussels, Lisbon and Barcelona.

Equal opportunities

At the heart of what we do is making crypto accessible to everyone. We want the team itself to reflect that diversity so we’d strongly encourage applications from underrepresented demographics.
