Are you looking to join a fast-growing team? Are you passionate about blockchains, open-source software & financial software and want to have an impact on a space that is still in its infancy: Decentralized Finance?
Centrifuge's purpose is to dismantle the existing financial infrastructure, strip it down, and reassemble it for the 21st century. With Centrifuge, we have launched a Decentralized Asset Financing Protocol that allows companies to access bankless liquidity.
Our users are on both sides: companies that want to finance assets (such as invoices, mortgages, or streaming revenue) using DeFi, and investors that are interested in investing in such on-chain portfolios.
Both sides internally use public blockchains, and you will be heavily involved in the underlying infrastructure that makes these DeFi applications possible.
We are a team of 16, diverse, across different locations with a home base in Berlin. The responsibilities might require flexible working hours.
You will take over DevOps and Security responsibilities from our distributed systems engineers, setting up a new DevOps team that will grow with the company, allowing you to grow in any direction you like.

In terms of skills, we are looking for:
