Whole industries have been disrupted and transformed in recent years by digital technology. EY advises clients to understand, architect, select and implement bleeding edge solutions required to efficiently run their businesses, with a focus on Digital and Cloud. These service areas span E-commerce, Blockchain, Solution Architecture, Mobile Applications, Digital Platform Architecture, Digital Technology Strategy, and Digital IT Operations.
Our mission at EY is to industrialize blockchain technology for enterprises and large financial institutions, with a particular focus on public blockchains like Ethereum and Bitcoin. We are an innovative and collaborative group of technical developers, cryptographers, mathematicians and business strategists who are dedicated to the application of blockchain technology and the development of world-class products. At EY, you will help our clients, some of the most influential companies, explore emergent applications and transform the way the world does business.
We are looking for Senior Software Engineers who are as excited about the future of public blockchains as we are. As a Senior Software Engineer, you will work in an Agile team to design, build, and deliver scalable, enterprise blockchain applications for our clients. To be successful in this role, you should be versatile, display leadership qualities, and be enthusiastic to take on new problems across the full-stack as we continue to push blockchain technology forward.
Your key responsibilities
Solve technical problems and provide innovative solutions across the full stack: front-end, back-end, and distributed infrastructure platforms like Ethereum and Quorum
Translate user stories and technical requirements into functional code
Build and deliver software systems with SDLC best practices including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
Contribute to the architecture and design of new and current systems, including considerations such as security, reliability, and scaling
Work with product team to deliver excellent solutions and customer experiences
Skills and attributes for success
You’re an innovator. You keep up to date on emerging technologies (especially blockchain) and are constantly thinking about potential applications.
You’re comfortable with ambiguity. In fact, you thrive in the face of complex problems with no obvious solutions.
You’re pragmatic and iterative in building software. You can simplify and get things done quickly with a demonstrated track record of building and delivering high quality software.
You’re a team player. You recognize the accomplishments of the team before the individual and actively foster an innovative and inclusive work environment
You’re entrepreneurial at heart. You have a passion for making your ideas a reality, building prototypes and ultimately launching production-scale solutions in the market.
To qualify for the role, you must have
Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field
5+ years of professional engineering experience
Experience designing and implementing RESTful and/or GraphQL APIs
Experience building cloud native/microservices architecture applications and platforms
Experience with Agile software development (like Scrum or Kanban)
Knowledge of professional software engineering practices and the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
Excellent written and verbal communication skills
Valid driver’s license in the US; willingness and ability to travel to meet client needs
Ideally, you’ll also have
Passion for blockchain technology and experience with Ethereum, Quorum, and/or Solidity
Experience with containerization technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes
Previous experience deploying and configuring environments using infrastructure-as-code provisioning tools like Terraform and Ansible
Experience with traditional enterprise technologies including SaaS and ERP systems (like SAP)
What we look for
We strongly value diversity and inclusion. Your energy for new challenges and your interest in growth is more important than any specific skills or other attributes. If you read through the qualifications and felt discouraged from applying because you dont check all the boxes, even though you think this might be a job you would love, please apply anyway. None of us had all these skills when we started here, and we value your ability to learn, grow, and work with others more than any pre-conceived notion of the kind of person who should fill these roles.

In addition, our Total Rewards package includes medical and dental coverage, both pension and 401(k) plans, a minimum of 15 days of vacation plus ten observed holidays and three paid personal days, and a range of programs and benefits designed to support your physical, financial and social well-being.
