Job
Description: 

Our Hacker-In-Residence (HIR) is a technical role that will balance both advisory and management work with actual code contribution.


On the average day the goal of the HIR will be to:

  • Review and advise the GP as to the technical configuration of potential investment companies.
  • Review and advise the GP as to the technical abilities of potential investment company founders.
  • Advise and mentor portfolio companies, helping them to overcome technical challenges, and thinking through technical management challenges such as their contributor workflow and security.
  • Manage, oversee and direct any in-house engineering talent at CEHV.
  • Support portfolio companies in technical interviews when they are hiring for their first senior technical roles.
  • Lead the technical direction for CEHV's in-house or incubated products.
  • Prototype and build in-house tooling for CEHV, including DeFi products and trade tooling infrastructure.
  • Contribute to DeFi projects incubated by CEHV.
  • Lead technical governance proposals and research for CEHV portfolio companies.


This role is a senior role and considered part of our investment and management teams. It is not just a role for technical contributors.


Who you are:

  • You are the kind of person who likes to strike a balance between getting their hands dirty in code, while still finding time to discuss, research and review abstract technical challenges.
  • You are relentlessly curious and love to tinker in new technologies. You pick them up fast and believe in pushing quick, iterative prototypes like any lean startup.
  • You enjoy building relationships with other developers, managing people and mentoring a team both internal and external.
  • You closely follow the blockchain and defi space and are intellectually fueled by the innovations in the space.
  • You are used to being an individual contributor.
  • You prefer being quick to being a perfectionist.


Required Background/Skills:

  • You have 7-10+ years of technical experience.
  • You are highly experienced in either Rust, C or C++ (with our preference being Rust).
  • You have a deep understanding of the blockchain and cryptocurrency space and smart contract systems.
  • You have managed your own server infrastructure at scale.
  • You have managed/led technical teams.


Preferred Qualifications:

  • Individuals with backgrounds in technical solutions for finance, trade engines, or who have worked on defi or dapp products previously.
  • Experience with Solana (or at least other stateless smart contract systems)
  • Experience with Solidity and Web3


Compensation Notes:

This role features a rare opportunity to earn fund carry (a portion of fund profits) as it is considered part of the technical team.
