Help us Build the Future of Money

At Gemini, no job is too small and no project too big as we endeavor to build the future of money. We are a mission-driven, team-based, inclusive, and determined community of thought leaders who invest in each other and the long game. Join us in our mission!
The Department: Engineering
Gemini is regulated and licensed like a bank, but it’s run like a tech startup, and engineering is the core of the company. There’s a wide range of tough problems to solve at Gemini – from properly securing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of customer funds, to developing innovative new blockchain products, to finding new techniques to combat fraud, to shaving microseconds off our API response times, and everything in between.
All of Gemini’s engineers are able to work across the software platform, not just on their own specialization or subteam. We value a thoughtful, collaborative software development process, coupled with a pragmatic approach to problem solving and delivering software.

The Fiats Tech team is in charge of everything related to payments outside the cryptocurrency space. This involves integrating with new banks, new payment methods, and currencies from around the world, each with their own particularities. The team builds customer-facing functionality for deposits and withdrawals as well as internal-facing tools to manage and process payments. Key challenges in this role include maintaining vendor relationships from around the world, and making tradeoff decisions between quick implementations and longer-term structural improvements.
