The Engineering Team

At Chainlink Labs, our engineering team pushes the scale and capabilities of decentralized applications across the industry. The Chainlink Network holds >70% market share in the oracle space, solving real-world problems by enabling smart contracts to securely interact with off-chain data/computation.

About the Role

The Release Engineering team is responsible for building, releasing, and deploying software that supports the most widely adopted oracle network in the world. As a Release Engineer, you will stand at the intersection of our Infrastructure, Core, and QA teams, building solutions utilized by the release process for all Chainlink services and tools.
