About Bitfinex

Bitfinex is a digital currency exchange that has become one of the most popular platforms in recent years. The founder, Jean Louis van der Velde started his company with just two employees and now employs nearly 100 people across multiple disciplines to accommodate traders from around the world looking at Bitfiinex as their go-to place when it comes time to buy or sell cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum(ETH) Ripple XRP etc.

The Bitfinex crypto platform was born out of necessity because many were not happy waiting on long transfer times which would take hours depending on if you had made an international purchase; this led him to launch BFX back then.

Our Mission

We are a team of individuals with an ownership mentality, who are self-motivated and entrepreneurial. Each member has the freedom to make decisions on their own time as they please; we believe in lifelong learning!

The aim is for us all to share one goal: creating an economy free from financial constraints by disrupting what's currently happening today.

We live and breathe banking. We’ve been at Bitfinex since before it was a thing, designing systems to make the financial industry more efficient - from “born on blockchain" technology that is helping transform industries worldwide into something new entirely.

A bright future awaits those who come here as innovators with an open mind: one where work never gets in your way of living life fully because we know what matters most are results not hours spent logged onto screens waiting for them (though hopefully there will always be plenty!).

Senior Backend Developer Key responsibilities

As a Senior Backend Developer, you will be the team's lead for all things related to our company’s backend components. This includes: working on the development of Bitfinex' trading application and other services like it; handling user interfaces that help traders get everything done in one place seamlessly (like making payments); coming up with new ways users can connect using blockchain technology!

  • Bitfinex's backend services are designed to be effortlessly smooth, responsive, and real-time for customers as the platform continues scaling. Bitfinix offers a myriad of APIs that cover all areas needed by developers on our team!.
  • Security - The backbone of our company is security.

  • The Bitfinex team is constantly striving to provide customers with the most innovative features and services. They use agile methodologies, which keep their user experience at the top of the line to ensure that they meet all of your needs as well!


  • In the competitive world of technology, it's important to have a wide range of skills. You need both database expertise as well as front-end web development experience so you can adapt easily to any position that is posted online or on paper!
