Do you want to be part of the future of value transfer? Are you excited about solving problems that have never been solved before? Are you looking for a values-led company, which cares about the growth of its employees?

Elliptic is looking for a software engineer to join our product-engineering organisation who can help develop our application suite to better support new and existing blockchain analysis products.

We offer a number of products and services that sit on top of a common analytics platform. They cover features like customizable risk scoring algorithms through to fully interactive graph visualisations. The products we make have an impact on thousands of people around the world and enable the legitimate use of cryptocurrencies. Pretty cool, right?

This opportunity is for an experienced Software Engineer to join a growing engineering team within Elliptic. The team is responsible for the entirety of the Elliptic web platform, delivering value directly to our customers on a daily basis.

The impact you will have:

You will be joining a new team within the company that’s laser-focused on exploiting our data set to explore new use cases. We want someone who is ambitious, passionate and data-driven. This is a unique opportunity and the role will be part of a small, dedicated Market Intelligence team tasked with building a new business unit, with strong collaboration with the wider Elliptic data and research teams.

We are looking for an experienced Software Engineer to work collaboratively with data engineers, data scientists, a designer, and a product manager to bring new products to life. You will listen to customers and understand their requirements, and work quickly and iteratively to build an MVP and help the team find and deliver commercial value.

What you will do:

  • Write beautiful code and tests
  • Think about how to solve hard problems and weigh up the pros and cons of different approaches against a variety of requirements
  • Build infrastructure and take advantage of cutting-edge cloud technology to spend less time writing mundane code and more time thinking about our customers problems
  • Enjoy discussing problems and solutions openly with stakeholders from across the business
  • Take responsibility for the code that you write and see it through from PR to production
  • Support and troubleshoot your applications on production
  • Contribute to iterations on our development processes and practices, bringing your own experiences and opinions to the table


You will be a great fit here if you:

  • Take pleasure from writing clean code and see tests as core to software engineering
  • Use data to make decisions about what to build and how to iterate
  • Measure success using data rather than release milestones
  • Are an integral part of the product discovery process and work closely with product managers, designers, and Elliptic’s customer base.
  • Are not afraid to fail, experiment often, and learn quickly
  • Are keen to learn new technologies and challenge existing tools, methodologies, and processes

Our ideal candidate has:

  • Strong production experience with Javascript ES6, HTML5, CSS (and preprocessors), Node.js, Typescript, Express and a front-end framework (React, Redux and Webpack preferred)
  • Good practical knowledge of data modelling – SQL and NoSQL
  • An understanding of different non-functional requirements (e.g. scalability, reliability, performance) and how to write software with these requirements in mind
  • Experience with Amazon services such as IAM, DynamoDB, Kinesis, and/or Lambda (or their Google Cloud/Azure equivalents)
  • Been actively involved in working with Product Managers to set priorities

Bonus Points for:

  • Experience managing infrastructure with Terraform or Cloud Formation
  • Experience running applications in containerised environments (e.g. Docker, Kubernetes, Helm)
  • An interest in cryptocurrency and/or blockchain technology


  • Share Options
  • Holiday – 25 days + public holidays
  • Private Health Insurance – we use Vitality!
  • Work Pension Scheme
  • Quarterly full-day off-sites & annual company 3-day offsite
  • Personal training budget & LinkedIn Learning subscription

  • Full access to Spill Mental Health Support
  • Our offices provide all of the amenities you could need
  • Work with top of the range equipment – MacBook Pro and any other equipment you need

We know Diversity and Inclusion is much deeper than just hiring, but it’s important for us to mention it here. We welcome and embrace individuals of all backgrounds and identities at Elliptic, and this is an ongoing priority for us. We know incredible people don’t all think in the same way. We want to be challenged every day. We believe our diverse team of individuals underpins this by bringing creative thinking and innovation to Elliptic every day. We are committed to creating a diverse, inclusive and equitable workplace, so we welcome applications from everyone, even if you may not think you fit all of the requirements of our roles. We foster an environment of psychological safety, where everyone feels comfortable to bring their whole self to work.
