Zeitgeist is building a blockchain for prediction markets and futarchy (the use of prediction markets as signals to inform governance decisions). We are building in the Polkadot ecosystem by targetting a deployment as a Kusama parachain, which will allow us to interact with the wider crosschain ecosystem.

We are looking for a Front-End Developer that has experience working in TypeScript, React, Mobx, and CSS frameworks like TailwindCSS. In this role you will be building the application to interface with the Zeitgeist blockchain. Blockchain experience is a plus, but is not required. You will be a key member on a small, but growing team, with the mission of decentralization and a culture preferring a flat organization and holocracy.

Responsibilities

  • Work on the Zeitgeist front-end application by extending new features, improving user experience, and optimizing the clientside code.

  • Follow a TDD approach and maintain good code quality.

  • Create modular components that can be re-used across the application or in other applications.

  • Work closely with the design and product team to implement UI designs.

Requirements

  • Experience coding TypeScript and React applications.

  • Experience working on remote and distributed teams.

  • Experience with Mobx, Redux, and other state management technologies.

  • Experience with TailwindCSS, Bootstrap, or other CSS frameworks.

  • Familiarity with automation technologies and CI.

  • Fluency in English.

Nice to Have

  • A computer science or related degree.

  • Experience working on blockchain technology.

  • Web design experience and expertise.
