Bitcoin/Lightning-Network developer/engineer

Guatt Inc.

Panamá, Panama

Full time

Sep 1

We are building a digital remittance platform that leverages the Bitcoin network to minimize fees when sending money cross-border (initial focus on Central/South America).

Our vision is to become a financial ally to the region and the world by offering cutting-edge financial services regardless of socioeconomic class or status. We will achieve this by harnessing the benefits (power) of the most innovative monetary network in human history, Bitcoin, and its second layer, the Lightning Network.

For our MVP, we will be looking to serve all Colombian immigrants living in Panamá as well as their relatives in Colombia (more than 93% of the remittances sent between these countries flows from Panama). Most senders are either unbanked or underbanked (access to savings account and debit card only) immigrants so our primary focus will be to facilitate fiat (USD) -> BTC -> fiat (Colombian Pesos) transactions as efficiently as possible.

We are looking for a senior candidate who is comfortable working up and down the software stack with experience building tools, services, and interfaces from scratch and maintaining production systems at scale.

We value someone who demonstrates the ability to think outside the box, shows creativity in problem solving, communicates clearly & effectively, and isn’t afraid of a challenge. We value long term vision and the ability to build for the future as well as learn from the past.

We want you to help build this platform and grow the Bitcoin ecosystem in Latin America.

  • Work closely with product management to plan and scope new projects and initiatives

What we look for in you

  • You have designed, built and maintained production services at scale and understand how to build reliable systems
