    Engineering at Blockchain

    Our engineering teams are involved in all aspects of the product lifecycle, from idea generation, design, prototyping, planning, execution and shipping. We are looking for software engineers who care about software excellence, are advocates of best practices and love learning new skills.


    Our recruitment process

    1. Phone conversation with a talent member

      Conversation being the key word. Ultimately, what we're after is learning what makes you you. We also do our best to give you more details about the company and the role.

    2. Code or portfolio review

      If you are interviewing for an engineer or design position, we like to spend time understanding tour technical skills. You can complete a mini project for us or we can review previous professional or personal projects on Github. For designers, a portfolio is a must. If those options don't work, you can have a technical interview with on of our engineers.

    3. Video chat with hiring manager

      It's much easier to make a connection face-to-face. We understand it's not easy to get away from the office (there are only so many excuses you can come up with) so we are flexible and open to using WhatsApp, Google Hangouts, Skype, or a good old-fashioned phone

    4. On-site visit

      Depending on which team you are interviewing with, this can take anywhere between 2 to 3 hours. Ask questions. Be curious. We want you to learn as much as possible

    5. Reference Check

      Checking references helps give us a flavour of what you're like to work with as well as what it will take for you to get the best experience possible at Blockchain.

    Welcome to the family! - If it feels good to us and it feels good to you, then let's get started. The door is always open to feedback so please don't be shy. You can tell us privately or publicly on Glassdoor. In everything we do, including interviewing, we strive for perfection through iteration.
