Remote (Europe preferred)

Mars Protocol Foundation is a not-for-profit research and development firm dedicated to building and advancing credit protocol primitives in the growing digital asset market. Over the last three years we have built up a team of passionate degens, ex-financers, researchers, developers, quantitative analysts and designers. Our team is dispersed over Asia, Europe and South America working in a remote-first environment. We also regularly get together for in-person events which help us to align and strategise our focus. Previously incubated as part of Delphi Labs and the larger Delphi Digital group, Mars Protocol Foundation has been formed to focus exclusively on credit primitives R&D going forward. At Mars Protocol Foundation, we believe in DeFi and the improvements it can bring towards more transparent, efficient and available financial systems. Our goal is to continue to drive the crypto asset space forward through our R&D contribution. If this sounds like what you want to spend day and night thinking about, we’d love to chat.

Job Description

One important component of Mars Protocol (and any credit protocol!) is the risk system. The risk system enables the assessment and monitoring of assets - their prices, liquidity levels, usage patterns and other metrics. These metrics feed into recommendations to governance which helps determine an assets suitability to be used as collateral and at what configurations. Mars Protocol Foundation is looking for someone with development experience and who is real self-starter. This person should love some good ole on-chain sleuthing and will have a multifaceted role to help take Mars Protocols risk system to the next level. This role would suit someone who is familiar with DeFi, smart contracts and some full stack development. Someone who can work independently and learn as they go while maintaining a strong sense of accountability in a fast-growth startup-like environment.


The role will ideally grow into a multifaceted one covering responsibilities such as: * Pulling data on-chain via indexing and querying * Pulling data off-chain via APIs (such as pricing info) * Running assets through risk frameworks and Jupyter Notebook simulations * Building out and enhancing dashboards and alerting systems for Mars Protocol * Constructing smart contract execution messages and submitting to governance


* Prior professional experience in backend or full-stack development roles * Proficient or willing to learn Typescript, Javascript, Html, Rust * Good understanding of DeFi / crypto-financial primitives and the web3 landscape * (Preferred) Experience tinkering with CosmWasm smart contracts * (Preferred) Experience building dashboards/alerts * (Preferred) Experience with Python and Jupyter Notebook

Compensation and Benefits

* Compensation: You’ll have a competitive salary + token upside * Impact: You’ll work with some of the smartest people in the space and play a pivotal role in influencing the way some of the most popular crypto applications are built. * Learning: You’ll benefit from the cumulative knowledgebase of Mars Protocol Foundation and Delphi’s 60+ person team, their portfolio companies and extended network. The only limit to your rate of learning will be your own initiative. * Uncapped potential: Mars Protocol Foundation is constantly growing and you’ll have the ability to take on as much responsibility as you want, progressing with the organisation. * Autonomy: While there are certain fixed responsibilities, you’ll be able to dictate how you spend your time based on where your interests lie. * Flexible schedule: You’ll be able to work remotely and manage your own time. As long as your core responsibilities are met, your schedule is what you make of it. We strongly believe a proper balance between work and free time allows for creativity and innovation to thrive. * Intellectual Freedom: You’ll have freedom to develop novel models and frameworks for innovative financial products and turn ideas, theories and research into implementations with real impact.
