Bitcoin Software Engineer
The mission at Satoshi Energy is to accelerate progress toward a world with decentralized sound money and abundant sustainable energy. The company was founded in 2018 based on the idea that 24/7 power markets will benefit from 24/7 financial settlement and that the most sustainable and successful bitcoin mining will be powered by low cost renewable energy. Today, we are connecting renewable energy assets with bitcoin mining data centers under novel contract structures. In the future, we envision every kilowatt-hour streamed to an energy consumer will be settled instantaneously with a payment streamed to the energy producer.
As a Bitcoin Software Engineer, you will join a small, focused team of bitcoiners, engineers, and energy experts and have the opportunity to find novel solutions to technical challenges in the bitcoin and energy space. You will work across the organization and assist us with research, design, development, and deployment of cutting-edge solutions. As we grow, you will be instrumental in helping to build the team and build a more decentralized and sustainable future.
