Senior Backend Engineer


Lasso aims to unlock the value of digital ownership for everyone. We’re building products that combine on-chain and off-chain data seamlessly to power accessible web3 user experiences. Our initial product enables collectors to connect their wallets and understand the utility attached to the tokens they hold or want.
Lasso’s founding team met at an unstructured data analytics startup in 2014, and has experience at multiple venture-backed companies, Google, Netflix, and Etsy. We closed our first round of funding in June 2022, led by Electric Capital, and with participation from Ethereal Ventures (ConsenSys), Village Global, several other venture firms, OpenSea, and builders from Google, Coinbase, Phantom, CoinTracker, SyndicateDAO, and more.

Build powerful, flexible, and user-friendly infrastructure that underpins Lasso’s products.
Design, build, and maintain large-scale production services, data pipelines, and streaming systems.
Collaborate effectively across product and engineering to ensure we ship high quality products quickly.
