Senior Backend Developer (m/f/x) @ Early-Stage Crypto Venture

RemoteGermany, Berlin, BerlinPortfolio Company

Job description


At Rekursive we believe that all of us need to redesign capitalism so it works for people and the planet - not just the top 1%.

We believe the key to building a fairer economy lies in making it easy for companies to be co-owned by employees, founders, investors, and partners. Help us redesign the economy by building services that will enable and accelerate the transition to the co-ownership economy.

The programming challenges you will face are numerous and complex. How do you implement a backend in a way that bridges Web2.0 with the blockchain? How can we write a scalable backend service that allows for fast development while keeping a good level of reliability? How can you develop a backend architecture that strikes a balance between decentralization and scalability? How can we as the tech team collaborate with the different stakeholders and design an ownership and governance system that by default promotes solidarity and equality? How do we translate our vision into technical solutions?

Ultimately the success of our service will be measured by how much we have reduced global wealth inequality by increasing universal basic asset ownership. If you think you can see a path that will help us redesign the economy by redesigning ownership then we’d love to hear from you.


  • We’ve secured a very sizeable pre-seed funding and are ready to expand the team
  • We have an advisory board with authors, activists, and professors that are working on alternative ownership
  • Our Tech team is well experienced in Blockchain and distributed systems
  • We are a remote-first company and are open to working from anywhere (with the option to work in offices in Berlin).
  • We are now looking for a driven senior backend developer to join our Tech team.
