Gemini was founded in 2014 by twin brothers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss to empower the individual through crypto.

Crypto is about giving you greater choice, independence, and opportunity. We are here to help you on your journey. We build crypto products that are simple, elegant, and secure. Whether you are an individual or an institution, we want to help you buy, sell, and store your bitcoin and cryptocurrency. Crypto is not just a technology, it's a movement.

At Gemini, our mission is to empower the individual and that includes giving our employees flexibility of choice — our Office Optional Policy allows employees to choose to work from one of our physical locations or from home.

Select roles that are location-specific will still be eligible for flexible schedules.

The Department: Gemini Prime

Gemini is a regulated, full service, crypto service provider where engineering is the core of the company.  There’s a wide range of tough problems to solve at Gemini – from properly securing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of customer funds, to developing innovative new blockchain products, to finding new techniques to combat fraud, to shaving microseconds off our API response times, and everything in between. 

All of Gemini’s engineers are able to work across the software platform, not just on their own specialization or subteam. We value a thoughtful, collaborative software development process, coupled with a pragmatic approach to problem solving and delivering software.

Gemini Prime is specifically focused on providing a capital market crypto service offering to institutional investors. We provide a software based platform that provides custody, access, trading, settlement & clearing and financing of crypto.

The Role: Trading Applications Engineer

Our institutional prime platform is the stargate for old world money to the metaverse of modern digital assets. As a software engineer you will help implement a variety of software applications that motivate, execute, and settle, what is shaping up to be, the largest transfer of wealth from the past to the future. It is hard to find a more exhilarating place to develop, test, and deliver software products than in the real time trading environment of the front office of financial institutions.

We are looking for a talented software engineer that is focused and fascinated by the real time movement of price and value at wire speed across a global liquidity network of buyers and sellers. In our realm, we converge the dimensions of time, relationship, and trust to deliver the safe exchange of assets at significant scale.


  • Implement and deliver financial applications that meet Prime’s functional and non-functional requirements for our global broker/dealer platform  
  • Work effectively in building out our global liquidity network at scale with a high degree of autonomy
  • Interface with other teammates to implement our broker/dealer platform
  • Leverage key software applications and services from across Gemini’s portfolio of exchange, settlement, and custodian technologies


  • Proficiency with C++, Golang, Python, JavaScript and/or Java
  • Understanding of communication protocols, specifically TCP/IP, HTTP, REST, Websocket
  • Strong analytical and conceptual skills with solid organizational skills and attention to detail
  • Engaging communicator with a knack for precision and conciseness
  • Independent decision maker able to act decisively based on your domain expertise

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience working with Bitcoin or Ethereum blockchain technologies, best if with Ethereum Virtual Machine based blockchains
  • Experience building trading or financial services applications
  • Experience in development of event-based distributed applications
  • Experience building web and mobile applications based on React and GraphQL

It Pays to Work Here

We take a holistic approach to compensation at Gemini, which includes:

  • Competitive Compensation and Profit-Sharing Equity
  • Flexible vacation policy
  • Retirement Plan Matching
  • Generous Parental leave
  • Comprehensive health plans
  • Training and professional development

At Gemini, we strive to build diverse teams that reflect the people we want to empower through our products, and we are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, or Veteran status.
