The Opportunity

Salad is at a key inflection point: we’ve successfully built a Seria A (raised $17Mproduct to connect gamers, their idle computers, and the ever growing demand for computer power. Now, we’re ready to put fuel on the fire and scale Salad into the next big thing in computing. Our users trust Salad to turn their idle computers into rewards with the click of a button. Building and maintaining trust is core to everything we do. We reward our users with gift cards, subscriptions, games, and more. Today these idle computers support public blockchain networks, but we’re quickly building a distributed infrastructure with our sights set on exascale computing.

We’re looking for a Frontend Software Engineer to help us build this future of computing.

The Role

As an engineer on our cross-functional team, you’ll build high-impact features in our core and developing products. This role is highly technical, and you’ll be a top code contributor.

The Tech Stack

We use serverless infrastructure. As we grew, we began to hit the scaling and throughput limits of these services. We spent the last year building a rock solid, hyper-scalable application infrastructure built-in on a unique virtual actor pattern all the while delivering the most requested new features.

Our open-source desktop and web-based applications are built in TypeScript on Electron, React and Node.js. Our APIs and services are built in C# powered by ASP.NET Core and Microsoft Orleans, a framework for robust, scalable, distributed applications.

We leverage AWS, Azure, Elastic Cloud, and Cloudflare to deliver high-quality experiences to users all around the world. We also love to automate all the things, managing our system with tools such as Docker, Kubernetes, and Terraform.
