Language Engineer 

Position in New York.

About Digital Asset

Digital Asset is a leading provider of distributed ledger technology (DLT) that solves real-world business challenges. We combine deep industry expertise with scalable technology, including a distributed ledger platform and an intuitive smart contract language originally developed by Digital Asset, called DAML. Digital Asset enables financial institutions and organizations across a variety of industries to bring efficient, modern and scalable DLT systems into production.

We work with some of the world’s largest companies, to build scalable and flexible systems that streamline business operations. Digital Asset is a global company with offices in New York, London, Budapest, Zurich, Hong Kong, and Sydney.

As we grow our team, we will maintain the dynamic, collaborative and pragmatic way of working that has grounded our efforts from the beginning. If you seek to develop solutions others are yet to contemplate, this opportunity may be right for you.

Opportunity

We’re looking for experienced Haskell engineers for the Language Team in New York. You will spend your day producing high quality open-source Haskell alongside like-minded professionals.

Our mission is to give our users the best possible development experience we or they can imagine through the DAML language and its tooling. We need your ideas and efforts to make that reality. We are a startup - everyone matters and all opinions are valued.

The DAML smart contract programming language is the centerpiece of our distributed ledger technology. DAML has a strongly typed, purely functional core extended with domain specific constructs to express the flow of rights and obligations of multi-party business processes. DAML is “backend-agnostic”, that is, runs on a slew of DLT implementations (including vendor/partner’s like VMWare, Amazon and even traditional RDBMS solutions). DAML Application Developers are supported by the DAML SDK. DAML abstracts over the ledger and the SDK provides the means to integrate DAML with application logic in other languages (most frequently Java, Scala and TypeScript). A key component is DAML Studio, a modern IDE to develop, test, and analyse DAML programs.

DAML is all open-source and implemented in terms of GHC (the Haskell compiler). Our language engineers are deeply engaged with the Haskell community and we frequently make upstream contributions to the Haskell ecosystem.

This is a rare opportunity to help define an industry and join a high performing team. We provide real solutions for real clients.

If you seek to develop solutions others have yet to contemplate, this opportunity may be right for you.

Success in this Role

Key Criteria

  • You’re an experienced Haskeller either by contributing to open source Haskell libraries and/or have commercial experience;
  • We do not require you’ve had experience developing compilers or language tooling;
  • Bonus points if you’ve tried out DAML and can demonstrate something you’ve built.
