About Us

Pyrofex Corporation is the development team behind Silvermint. At Pyrofex we work to change the blockchain game. We need a world class team to reach our goals. As Utah Valley’s first cryptocurrency startup, founded in 2016 by ex-Googlers Mike Stay and Nash Foster, Pyrofex creates next-generation blockchain platforms that are simple, secure, and always reliable. We take pride in our work. We set high expectations for everyone, from our founders to each team member, and as a result we deliver extraordinary products and services.

At Pyrofex, we hire for strength, not for lack of weakness. We hire for capability and talent, not specific knowledge of a tool or language. We hire people who have a passion for quality and innovation. Each team member achieves great things in an environment supporting both independence and collaboration.

About You

You collaborate well with others to design and architect our complex systems. You take the amorphous sets of needs and use cases and distill these into written designs and specifications. You demonstrate a fastidious attention to detail, knowledge of your programming tools, and the ability to regularly produce working, correct code.

Pyrofex hires engineers at all levels of experience—from current students to engineers with decades of experience. After all, one of our founders has a Ph.D., and the other dropped out of college, twice! The path we've taken to get this far is unique and we suspect the same will be true of our best employees.

We are most interested in hiring programmers with knowledge of functional programming, a background in computer science, and who can program in multiple languages. However, if you think this is for you, we'll take a look.

Open positions

Software engineer - distributed systems

We are hiring software engineers of decentralized systems to help us deliver on a new blockchain platform, which will be written in Go and our own bespoke language. Developers on this team will design, implement, test, deploy, and manage a large-scale, distributed global software system. Experience with formal verification is helpful but not required.

If this sounds good to you, then please apply via email,, with a cover letter and resume. In your cover letter tell us about your work ethic and your favorite project. If you can include links to examples of your code, that would be most excellent.
