About Maker

MakerDAO is an Ethereum-based protocol that issues the DAI stablecoin and facilitates collateral-backed loans without an intermediary. Its widespread use and DeFi integration make MakerDAO one of the most operational protocols in the crypto ecosystem.

Distributed Teams

We form our teams around the availability of talent into co-located or distributed agile teams. On the TechOps side you will work together with our DevOps engineering team across the world, to make sure we have best-of-breed tools, practices, and processes with a strong focus on automating everywhere it makes sense.

To get additional coverage we are looking for three additions to the team. One of them will be located in the Asia-Pacific time zone, one in Europe and the other in the US time zone. This is a completely remote position. The responsibilities sometimes require working evenings and weekends, sometimes with little advance notice. No regular travel is required but the budget for conferences and training is in place.
