About Axel

Axel builds developer infrastructure for the future of finance. We're unlocking financial freedom for everyone, starting with the developer.

Axel is the leading universal and composable decentralized finance infrastructure platform. We've built the world class developer tooling needed to make building on the blockchain frictionless.

Axel is extremely well funded from phenomenal investors and some of the brightest minds in technology, giving us many years of runway and the ability to pay competitive salaries, offer great benefits, and provide meaningful equity.

The Role

Axel is building out smart contract infrastructure to scale our financial platform. As one of our initial smart contract engineers, you will be joining a team of hyper talented engineers to architect and build protocol infrastructure, proxy and interface contracts, open-source smart contract libraries, and more. You'll be responsible for bringing the same level of security, speed, and stability from our existing financial infrastructure platform to our smart contract infrastructure. The contracts you build will quickly become a platform for thousands of teams to millions of users globally.

At Axel, we believe the magic happens when we're in person. Our headquarters are based in Silicon Valley. If you are not based in the Bay Area and want to be IRL with the team, we can help you relocate or fly you to the HQ on a regular basis.


2-4 years of backend development experience

1-2 years of Solidity smart contract development, including mainnet production deployments of non-trivial protocols and related security audits

Background in Computer Science or a technically related field

Proficiency with Solidity, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), wallet interfaces, and RPCs

Experience designing, building, testing, deploying, and maintaining high traffic smart contracts

Experience with cutting edge developer tools, such as Hardhat, Foundry, Solmate, Ganache, and/or Truffle is preferred

Ability to balance shipping quickly with building secure, robust, scalable infrastructure

Experience working with startups and fast-paced, ambitious environments

Passion for decentralized finance and blockchains

A "can-do" hustler mentality, being a former founder, or building side projects is a huge plus!
