**Who should be interested:** * Are you a senior developer who loves Elixir/Liveview and/or would be very interested in developing in Elixir? * Do you like or love online games or metaverses? * Do you want to play a huge role in the future of the blockchain / NFTs? * Do you want to get in early with a very small company where you can make an outsized impact? **About the role** You will be one of the first key members of the Hawku team. You will be working with a technical, data-driven and product-focused team. The founder is an Elixir developer and MBA with 20+ years of experience starting and growing companies. You will be working on developing the central Hawku marketplace web app, linking together game and meta-verse specific data with for sale and bid listings - all in Elixir. As a charter member of the team you will have the opportunity to not just develop products but also shape the future of the company and an entire industry. This is a rare opportunity to get in very early in a new fully-remote venture building a really fun product with huge growth potential. **Who we are looking for…** * You have 4+ years of production software engineering experience ideally with at least one Elixir project. * You are customer focused - you are motivated by how to best solve customer’s problems - not just the hottest tech. You get excited seeing customers jump up and down for joy when talking about your products. * You ideally have experience in a start-up environment * You have an understanding of the full software development lifecycle * You love intellectual challenges and are intellectually curious. * You believe in Elixir and want to help grow the Elixir ecosystem by (among other things) producing and open-sourcing web3 tooling for Elixir. * You enjoy companies that are scrappy, and are able to do more than less. * You like data. * You are goal oriented and tend to thrive on execution (i.e. you get stuff done.) * You like things that are simple over complicated * You have a witty sense of humor (or at least can tolerate bad puns). The company works in a PETAL framework (Phoenix, Elixir, Tailwind, Alpine, Liveview) with some web3 add-ons in Typescript. Elixir experience is preferred but the language is easy to learn and love. Experience in Python or Ruby with a desire to learn Elixir is also acceptable. **Benefits and Culture** * Healthcare (Medical, Dental, Vision) * Flexible Time Off * Stipend for appropriate desktop tech (laptop, monitor, etc…) **Compensation:** Salary, equity and/or possibly tokens. **Other Information: *** Must be in a location that is +/-3 of PST * Ideally US-eligible. * No Visa program at this time.
