Acala’s mission is to build and nurture the autonomous financial infrastructure of the decentralized web. Delivering on this mission will bring more financial accessibility, opportunity, and prosperity to everyone on the planet through a new, open financial system.
Our core project is the Acala Network itself, which we expect to become the de facto DeFi parachain and stablecoin of the Polkadot ecosystem. Polkadot provides the underlying trust primitives to our parachain, upon which we’ve built our suite of financial primitives including; Multi-collateralized Stablecoin; Trustless Staking Derivatives, and Unified Decentralized Exchange. These primitives will be used by us and other teams to power open DeFi innovations, and burn away all need for the parasitic intermediaries that inhabit almost every conventional trust-based financial system.
We have secured our support from eminent backers like Polychain, Coinbase Venture, Pantera and many more. We’re still preparing Acala’s parachain launch, so there’s no better time to join our mission and be a part of the future that we’re building. Because whoever you are, we’re building it for you
About the role
As a Software Engineer your role will focus on the development and maintenance of the Acala DeFi primitives; a trustless staking derivative (liquid DOT), a multi-collateralized stablecoin backed by cross-chain assets (aUSD), and an AMM DEX – all with micro gas fees that can be paid in any token. You’ll be working in a team that delivers production level code and you’ll contribute new development ideas to our ongoing projects. You won’t be working alone, and you’ll have a lot of support from Bryan Chen and the other members of the Engineering Team. You can read more about our team in the section below.
Our ideal candidate will have worked on blockchain code before, but perhaps not in a production/deployment environment. They may also have come from an unsuccessful blockchain-incubator program. We’re expecting to hire an experienced Rust Engineer who is familiar with Substrate, but we’re open to a wide range of candidates that might have the right combination of secure application development experience and a mature level of interest in decentralised applications. If you’re willing to attempt a short Rust evaluation exercise for us, then we want to hear from you.

What you’ll do
What it takes
What we offer
Working across New Zealand, the USA & China, our team has emerged from our shared desire for a fairer and more inclusive financial system – in direct contrast to the clear shortcomings of the current institutions that run the world. We’re just people like you, but we’re some of the leading blockchain innovators, Substrate and Rust developers, full-stack dApp developers and economists.
The community we’re building is shaped by our values and fuelled by the needs of all humans:
We’re building Acala based on a core set of values we believe are in line with the tenets of web3:
What We Have Achieved
Acala was founded in 2019 as an early Web3 Foundation grant recipient, and is an ecosystem and education partner of W3F and Polkadot. We have delivered 3 successful live testnet candidates acquiring 14,000 new accounts and 140,000 transactions within the first 3 weeks. And we expect to be among the first to launch on both Kusama and Polkadot in 2021. Stay tuned!
