As the Head of DevOps, you will be working closely with our co-founders and our Core Engineering team to devise the DevOps and infrastructure strategy for the Evmos foundation. You will be leading the DevOps practice, implementing systems infrastructure best practices, and creating documentation for our developer community.

We will teach you how smart contracts work at a lower level using the EVM and go-ethereum (aka. Geth) and also how to implement app chains using the Cosmos SDK framework and the Tendermint Consensus Engine.Our team taught the first university-level Blockchain for Developers course at UC Berkeley so we can also guide you through the journey of learning other disciplines related to cryptocurrencies and blockchain like economics, mathematics, cryptography, distributed systems, and more.
