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 Product Engineering team develops user-facing products including dapps, apps, and beautiful marketing pages. We value attention to detail, a sense of ownership, and a willingness to improve. The team is highly collaborative and very passionate about web3 technologies. The team structure is composed of Front-end Engineers, UI Engineers and QA. We collaborate closely with the Design team across time zones and push the boundaries of what is possible.
We are looking for a UI Engineer who loves beautiful, well-crafted, perfect interfaces and great user experiences. We value design and everyone can see that in our work. Edge & Node is looking for someone who feels equally at home talking to developers and designers. You understand that design is a process and that concepts might need multiple iterations before it's just right. Edge & Node is building the foundation for web3 - a new platform for building decentralized applications (dapps) where no corporation has control over data. We are looking for someone who cares about the quality of the final design as much as we do. You will ensure the final product is high quality and works as intended.
What You’ll Be Doing
- Develop, ship, and maintain quality interfaces for our marketing pages and products
- Work with our Design team to transform ideas and designs into robust, scalable and readable code
- Implement beautiful animations and data visualizations in our various user interfaces
- Be an autonomous individual with a proactive attitude and receptiveness to feedback
What We Expect
- React components: Experience building reusable UI components with thoughtful APIs and handling React component state and lifecycle.
- Next.js: Experience with front-end frameworks, such at Next.js or similar..
- CSS-in-JS: Theme UI and Emotion. CSS animations.
- Good communication skills.
- Familiarity with TypeScript.
- Experience working with data and building data-driven dashboards is desirable.
- Data Visualization libraries: Experience with visualization and animations libraries such as D3.js is desirable.
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.
