    What do we offer?

    As an engineer at Chainalysis, you’ll have the opportunity to not only work in a tech-agnostic environment, but you’ll have influence and a voice in our technologies, processes, roadmap and releases. Not only will you work on the architecture and delivery of next-generation, high throughput pipelines that handle terabytes of data, you’ll implement the latest technologies in our infrastructure, distributed systems, design techniques, as well as releases that are constantly innovating our data platform.

    What does culture & D&I mean to Chainalysis?

    Culture means more than quarterly huddle-ups across offices or a brand new Apple MacBook Pro upon starting. To us, it means collaboration and vision. Being on a crazy rocketship-mission means we all need to believe in what we do and our products, so having that passion carried throughout the organisations brings unity and optimism which is crucial.

    Having our main presences’ in Denmark, London and NY means we get to taste all different types of culture via the wonderful platform of Slack, whether that’s in our #NomNomNom food channel, or even in our #HODL group chat where we all shill coins (only non-financial advice allowed).

    Diversity and inclusion is extremely important to Chainalysis. To show devotion to building a more inclusive and empowered environment, we 4-days of reflection every year. Even though these are essentially extra days of annual leave, we encourage everything to join a 1-hour Zoom to enlighten peers on what we’re celebrating by an amazing host(s). - Ranging from Harvey Milk Day, to Juneteenth all the way to International Women’s Day.
