About Acala Acala's mission is to build and nurture the autonomous financial infrastructure of the decentralized web. Delivering on this mission will bring more financial accessibility, opportunity, and prosperity to everyone on the planet through a new, open financial system. Our core project is the Acala Network itself, which we expect to become the de facto DeFi parachain and stablecoin of the Polkadot ecosystem. Polkadot provides the underlying trust primitives to our parachain, upon which we’ve built our suite of financial primitives including; decentralized, multi-collateral stablecoin; trustless staking derivatives, and Decentralized Exchange. These primitives will be used by us and other teams to power open DeFi innovations, and remove the need for the intermediaries that inhabit almost every conventional trust-based financial system. We have secured our support from eminent backers like Polychain, Coinbase Venture, Pantera and many more. Acala began its launch process on December 18, 2021, and we've got regular product launches and tokenomic incentive programs planned throughout 2022, so there’s no better time to join the DeFi mission and be a part of the future that we’re building...because we're building it for you, too.
About the role As a Solidity Engineer your role will focus on the design and development of smart contracts for Acala EVM compatible projects. You’ll be expected to deliver production level code with little management or supervision, and to contribute new development ideas to our other projects. You won't be working alone, and you'll have a lot of support from Bryan Chen and the other 10+ members of Acala's Engineering Team. Our ideal candidate will have developed smart contracts before in a production environment, and will be able to discuss deployment to a blockchain at interview. We're expecting to hire someone who is very familiar with developing many different types of smart contracts, and wants to continue to do so for the growing Polkadot/Kusama parachain ecosystems.

Throughout 2021 we have proven ourselves to be the DeFi hub(s) of the Polkadot Ecosystem & Community by securing the first crowdloan-funded parachain slots on both the Polkadot & Kusama blockchain networks. But even at this, our true work has only just begun...
