Dizzy Smith

Edge & Node is a creative software development company working to build a vibrant, decentralized future. Founded by the initial team behind The Graph, Edge & Node is dedicated to the advancement of web3, a decentralized and fair internet where public data is available to all—an internet that enables its users to increase agency over their creations and their lives.

Edge & Node’s initial product is The Graph, an indexing protocol for querying networks like Ethereum and IPFS, which ensures open data is always available and easy to access. The Graph is used by thousands of protocols and dapps including Uniswap, Livepeer, Aave, Decentraland, and more. Edge & Node also launched Everest, a decentralized registry with the mission to catalyze the shift to web3, facilitating community-driven curation of projects providing ongoing utility to the crypto space.

The Graph-Node Engineering team is focused on building and maintaining core software components that make The Graph work. We are especially focused on graph-node, an Open Source Rust project that provides the core indexing capabilities of The Graph. 

We are looking for an experienced and highly motivated technical engineering manager that will support the individuals on this team and build a culture of collaboration and predictable software delivery. This management position requires a strong understanding of growing teams and processes and will be accountable for the overall team’s performance and quality of software. 

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Managing and growing a world-class remote engineering team that is solving large-scale indexing challenges in an Open Source environment
  • Collaborating with product management and other core development teams across The Graph ecosystem to deliver improvements to the indexing components
  • Providing coaching and counseling via mentoring, one-on-one meetings, etc.
  • Developing and refining processes that help the team keep moving forward and delivering great software
  • Facilitating transparent and constructive communication between team members
  • Expanding and growing the team culture for healthy and sustainable execution

What We Expect

  • Experience managing, coaching and mentoring software engineering teams of 6 or more people
  • Experience shipping Open Source software that is used in 24/7 environments
  • Experience delivering and managing software engineering processes through an entire SDLC
  • Exposure to large-scale data indexing and processing problems and methodologies
  • Experience recruiting, interviewing and retaining software engineering teams
  • Experience with conveying complex technical ideas in written, verbal and presentational forms
  • Past experience as an engineer building software in a team environment

About the Graph

The Graph is the indexing and query layer of web3. The Graph Network’s self service experience for developers launched in July 2021. Developers build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, that applications can query using GraphQL. The Graph supports indexing data from multiple different networks including Ethereum, NEAR, Arbitrium, Optimism, Polygon, Avalanche, Celo, Fantom, Moonbeam, IPFS, and PoA with more networks coming soon. To date, tens-of-thousands of subgraphs have been deployed on the hosted service, and now subgraphs can be deployed directly on the network. Over 28,000 developers have built subgraphs for applications such as Uniswap, Synthetix, KnownOrigin, Art Blocks, Balancer, Livepeer, DAOstack, Audius, Decentraland, and many others.

If you are a developer building an application or web3 application, you can use subgraphs for indexing and querying data from blockchains. The Graph allows applications to efficiently and performantly present data in a UI and allows other developers to use your subgraph too! You can deploy a subgraph to the network using the newly launched Subgraph Studio or query existing subgraphs that are in the Graph Explorer. The Graph would love to welcome you to be Indexers, Curators and/or Delegators on The Graph’s mainnet. Join The Graph community by introducing yourself in The Graph Discord for technical discussions, join The Graph’s Telegram chat, and follow The Graph on Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Reddit, and Medium! The Graph’s developers and members of the community are always eager to chat with you, and The Graph ecosystem has a growing community of developers who support each other.

The Graph Foundation oversees The Graph Network. The Graph Foundation is overseen by the Technical Council. Edge & Node, StreamingFast, Figment, Semiotic  and The Guild are five of the many organizations within The Graph ecosystem.
