Help us Build the Future of Money 

Gemini Trust Company, LLC (Gemini) is a licensed digital asset exchange and custodian. We built the Gemini platform so customers can buy, sell, and store digital assets (e.g., Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Zcash) in a regulated, secure, and compliant manner. 

Digital assets and blockchain technology have the power to transform the world for good. This truth, along with our core values, form the bedrock of our company and culture. At Gemini, no job is too small and no project too big as we endeavor to build the future of money. We are a mission-driven, team-based, inclusive, and determined community of thought leaders who invest in each other and the long game. Join us in our mission!


The Department: Engineering

Gemini is regulated and licensed like a bank, but it’s run like a tech startup, and engineering is the core of the company.  There’s a wide range of tough problems to solve at Gemini – from properly securing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of customer funds, to developing innovative new blockchain products, to finding new techniques to combat fraud, to shaving microseconds off our API response times, and everything in between.

All of Gemini’s engineers are able to work across the software platform, not just on their own specialization or subteam. We value a thoughtful, collaborative software development process, coupled with a pragmatic approach to problem solving and delivering software.


The Role: Senior Software Engineer

We are looking for a highly motivated and experienced Senior Engineer to help design, build and architect systems as part of Gemini’s broader product lines and services. The team is focused on innovating how we deliver software and will be working with every engineering team to improve our ability to deliver high quality solutions to our customers fast and efficiently. Even more so than in other engineering roles, this individual must be an outstanding communicator and bridge-builder across different parts of the engineering organization. You’ll put your experience to work with helping development teams design and implement their solution. This role can be based in our New York, Chicago, or Portland, Oregon offices.


Responsibilities:

  • Working with product, design and other engineering teams to deliver simple solutions for application developers.
  • Cultivating a high-performance culture within your team that iterates frequently and learns continuously without sacrificing product quality.
  • Setting performance goals for team members; evaluating performance; providing coaching and facilitating professional development.
  • Recruiting and hiring world-class engineers to work on Gemini’s products.

Minimum Qualifications

  • At least 6 years of previous software engineering experience
  • Good verbal, written communication, problem-solving skills with a strong sense of ownership
  • Experience managing a high-performing team of engineers.
  • Demonstrated ability to lead positive change; empower people; cultivate product technology visions and innovative solutions.
  • Sound business judgment, with a proven ability to influence others and make excellent decisions.
  • The ability to adapt and handle multiple competing priorities in collaboration with peers.
  • A customer focused empathy and understanding of the challenges that face developers when using an application development platform, and a vision for how great products can help.
  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills with the ability to work closely across teams and manage dependencies.
  • Understanding of modern application development and architecture.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience in fintech/crypto/blockchain technologies and products

It Pays to Work Here

We take a holistic approach to compensation at Gemini, which includes:

  • Amazing benefits, 401k match contribution, and flexible hours
  • Snacks, Perks, Wellness Outings & Events

An Insider's view of Gemini

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Before I started, I was told that taking a job at Gemini was a great idea because of how excited everyone was to be there. After working here for more than two years, I still believe that to be true. The office is constantly buzzing with incredibly smart people who are working to build Gemini into the long-lasting business we know it can be.

Marjorie

Manager, Cash Management

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

A risk team is typically seen as a group that says "no”; at Gemini, establishing relationships and collaborating are key to understanding risks, which better enables us to say "yes" (or "yes, but..."). Communicating clearly and regularly, keeping things simple, and being flexible in a complex space reduces the risk of a message being lost.

Yusuf

Head of Risk

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Team meetings and 1:1s are necessary for communication and productivity, but the daily interactions are what really make you accessible. You need to show genuine interest in everyone professionally and personally. I make a connection with each person so they know they are welcome to stop by my desk or ask for my support outside of “scheduled” time.

Jeanine

Managing Director of Operations

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

When we start a project, I challenge my team to look outside of the finance space, to take inspiration from other creative spaces such as art, industrial design, fashion, automotive, etc., and try to translate that into a solution for our industry and users. It's important to set the tone that solutions to problems can come from anyone or anywhere.
