At Hiro, we build developer tools that bring Web3 to Bitcoin. Our suite of tools unlocks the full potential of Bitcoin through smart contracts, digital assets, and decentralized applications. With Hiro tools, developers can test and deploy smart contracts, spin up nodes and other server-side resources for scaling, and more. Building on Bitcoin is hard. Hiro’s developer tools make it easier. We’re very proud to say that Hiro won 4 Built In’s Best Places to Work awards, including U.S. Best Startups to Work For, Remote Best Startups to Work For, Remote Best Places to Work, and New York Best Startups to Work For!

Hiro is funded and backed by more than $75 million from Union Square Ventures, Y Combinator, Lux Capital, Winklevoss Capital, Naval Ravikant, and others.

  • Collaborate with engineering teams on building / launching new products and features
  • Evangelize and implement industry best practices to improve the security and ease-of-use of our production environment
  • Diagnose problems from all sides and quickly narrow down potential solutions
  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack

  • Proficiency with container technologies like Docker or Containerd
  • Strong knowledge on architecting and managing Kubernetes clusters, and deploying a large variety of applications to them
  • Experience deploying, scaling, and troubleshooting production services
  • Experience with service meshes like Istio/Envoy, Linkerd, and API gateways like Kong and Nginx
  • Experience writing infrastructure as code (IaC) with tools like Terraform or Pulumi
  • Experience with logging, tracing, metrics, and monitoring dashboard tools such as Grafana, Loki, and Prometheus
  • Competence in working with public cloud infrastructure such as GCP, Azure, and/or AWS

We’d Also Like to See

  • Familiarity with running blockchain software (bitcoin, ethereum, etc)
  • Hardening, securing the Kubernetes cluster with monitoring and auditing dashboards
  • Experience with multiple technology stacks for configuration, monitoring, logging, alerting, CI/CD, application runtimes (Python, Node, Rust)
  • Experience with caching and database solutions (e.g. Redis, Postgres)
  • Experience with various network protocols, such as HTTP, TLS, DNS, TCP/IP (transport and network layers).

We’d love to hear from you even if you don’t have experience or interest in every bullet. There’s no perfect candidate and we want to find the right fit, even if it’s different than we imagine.
