Bitcoin Exchange Lead Developer - Full Stack - React, Node.js, Bitcoin Core, Docker, DB Management, Security



Part Time

$30 (hourly)


Jun 12

This job is no longer accepting applications.

We're a non-custodial Bitcoin-only exchange called paybtc and we're looking for a talented lead developer to join the team long term.

You'll be taking over completely, the current lead developer will guide you through the custom platform if you need it. We use Taskade for project management.

The code is custom, kept minimal and is built for speed & security, we're looking for a person who has a true passion for beautiful code and the mindset and understanding of less code is better. You'll need to have experience in keeping a platform secure and the best practices to do so. If you're selected, our security team member will take you through the vetting process and I will take you through the verification process. The entire platform is custom-built on react, node.js and docker.

You'll be working alongside a Bitcoin Lightning developer who we've recently hired to help you integrate lightning support into the platform as the Bitcoin lighting network is quite a niche dev space.

You can check out the platform here:

The position is 20-30hrs/week per week and we have a relaxed work style, so you can work anytime you wish during the week, as long as tasks are being completed on time. As the lead developer of the entire platform, you need to be contactable for any business-critical emergencies, downtime or attacks 24/7 and have two internet connections (cellular & wifi). Even better if you have a third method.

Please include some of the work you've done, it would be ideal if you already know about Bitcoin and how it works, even better if you've developed with Bitcoin before.

We're a fast-moving platform, working passionately to keep up to date with the latest web tech and Bitcoin features to serve the Bitcoin community.

Kind Regards,

Ben Howard
