At Eco we're challenging existing payment processing models, changing the way money moves for many segments of modern e-commerce. With every new partnership opportunity or product feature, we confront new issues related to payment compliance and liquidity management. Where we interface with cryptocurrency, many of these issues demand new solutions, working in best faith to satisfy legacy compliance frameworks. As our Payment Integrity Manager, you'll be essential in creating risk and compliance strategies that will enable us to launch and grow Eco products globally. You will support our product development efforts internally and also be a point of contact for many of our integration partners and early merchant customers. You will also need to be our resident expert on payment operations within relevant statutory frameworks. We're looking for someone with rigor and who takes ownership by default, with the conviction and creativity to help us build a new type of payment network. We hope it's you!

Why this matters:

Our everyday payment systems are dependent upon financial infrastructure design decades ago. Consumers benefit from rewards programs and new checkout experiences, but in the background money moves the same as ever: through insecure networks that impose unnecessary costs on all of us as they strain to meet the needs of modern commerce.

We started Eco because we know that with the right product strategy, serving the right use cases, cryptocurrency and blockchain finally present a solution for many of our most persistent payment problems. It’s possible to rethink our current payment systems from the ground up. In doing that, we confront several difficult, challenging and impactful problems which will demand solutions in order to build a trusted and ubiquitous payment system to enable commerce for everyone. To achieve our mission and realize our vision, we’ve put together an incredible team and are selectively adding to it.

Job Description

We started Eco to lead consumers to use crypto where it matters: in everyday spending and saving. As a solution to so many of our everyday “money problems” (high fees, data insecurity, transfer limits and restrictions), crypto enables benefits banks can’t match. Crypto even makes it possible to rethink our current payment systems from the ground up—and have more control over our money than ever before. 

We believe that while cryptocurrencies can represent a fundamental upgrade over traditional money—and can dramatically improve users' lives—they won't work without widespread distribution and a compelling path to adoption. We’ve spent two years building this pathway. It starts with the Eco App, empowering users to earn while their money sits, and when it moves—with those compounding effects yielding a 10x improvement over how users manage their finances today. The journey ends (or just begins) with the Eco Currency, built for payments and designed for community ownership, with fair distribution of economic value.

Every day, we confront several difficult and impactful problems which demand new solutions in tech, in product, in marketing, in advocacy. To achieve our mission and realize our vision, we’ve put together an incredible team and are selectively adding to it. We hope you’ll join.

As a Blockchain Engineer at Eco, you will: 

  • Contribute to the development and specification of the Eco token model, by implementing, testing, and auditing Solidity smart contracts on Ethereum.

  • Work with external auditors to ensure the security of Eco’s smart contracts.
  • Contribute to the design and deployment of a bug bounty program covering our smart contracts.

We’re looking for you if:

  • You consider discipline, integrity and unparalleled work ethic to be three of your core values.
  • You are familiar with common algorithms and data structures. Comfortable implementing new data structures where no suitable implementation already exists.
  • You pay careful attention to the privacy implications and security of your code, taking care to avoid opportunities for unintentional functionality or information leakage.
  • You approach all aspects of software development with a focus on the customer perspective, security, and reliability. 
  • You extend where falling short, fix where broken, and build where missing.
  • You test your code as a matter of practice, and automate tests as part of getting the job done. You don’t consider code complete until there are automated tests demonstrating that it works.
  • You’re passionate about open source development and the crypto/blockchain community in particular.
  • Bonus points if you have prior blockchain development experience, and you understand the use cases of common cryptographic primitives and can design secure systems using them!
