Job Description

BlockChyp, one of the fastest growing payment companies in the country, has moved engineering and operations to Utah. We're staffing up and looking for a highly motivated Devops Engineer to simplify our production environments, wrangle the build pipeline, and build some sweet wallboard analytics.

BlockChyp is growing like wildfire, but it's still early enough for engineers to have freedom to do things the right way. And because we're new, there's no legacy junk to contend with. All applications ship as Golang binaries inside Docker containers running in AWS. In the next few years, we'll probably move everything to an on-prem Kubernetes environment due to specialized payment industry encryption and network setups not available in public clouds, which will be a fun project. Our CTO is jealous.

You'll also be fighting the good fight. Payments is a dirty, predatory business and the only thing most payment companies innovate are new ways to steal from small merchants. We're trying to change all that. At BlockChyp, technology comes first and the small businesses we serve get a technology edge on the big box stores with no bait and switch pricing. And because BlockChyp has repeatedly turned down venture funding, you don't need to worry about the VCs swooping and in ordering us to be evil later.

This is a full time position with benefits. All candidates must be local to the Silicon Slopes region, but you'll have the option to work on site in our Pleasant Grove offices, remotely, or hybrid. Must be able to pass a criminal background check.

Preferred Qualifications

  • A four year degree in computer science, mathematics, or related technical field.
  • At least three years experience in a Devops Engineer or related role working with scripted AWS environments.
  • Familiarity with managing Docker containers in AWS.
  • Deep Linux experience.
  • Familiarity with cryptocurrency or blockchain architecture, especially Bitcoin or the Lightning Network.
  • Knowledge of Go and Vue.js build pipelines would be nice.
  • All the other usual stuff.

About BlockChyp

BlockChyp was founded by point-of-sale industry veterans to fix long neglected technical problems in the integrated payments space. BlockChyp isn't just another ISO reselling the same junk all the other ISOs sell. BlockChyp has developed a full stack end-to-end semi-integrated payment solution for independent point of sale developers.

BlockChyp is still small enough to be fun (less than 100 employees) and large enough to be stable. Get the real startup experience by joining one of the most innovative and ethical payment companies in the world.
