Evmos opens a new frontier for blockchain applications, expanding the functionality of the EVM by enabling cross-chain applications that tap the liquidity and user bases of multiple blockchain ecosystems to provide more unified experiences.

This is an opportunity to join Evmos at a pivotal time on our growth journey. Having just raised $27m in funding from investors including Polychain Capital, Coinbase Ventures and Circle Ventures, Evmos is now poised to accelerate towards our goal of becoming the playground for Ethereum Apps in the Cosmos ecosystem.

About The Role:

As our Cloud DevOps Engineer, you will play a vital role within our dedicated DevOps team, defining and implementing strategies to manage and optimise our infrastructure.
Your hands-on expertise will allow you to implement system infrastructure best practices and create essential guidelines for our developer community. You will also be tasked with constructing automated tools and workflows to bolster our validator community, node partners, and core engineering team.
This role is a perfect match for someone with solid experience in both DevOps and software development, looking to leverage their skills in a challenging yet rewarding environment.
As part of our team, you’ll have the unique opportunity to collaborate with other engineering teams and engage with projects within the wider ecosystem like IBC, Cosmos, and Tendermint Core teams.
