I would like to formally apply for the developer position at Pickle Finance. I really love
Pickle, the community is awesome, and would be proud to work for this DeFi project. My
aspiration is to be the next BBB / 0xPenguin!
I enjoy taking on difficult challenges and I find DeFi to be a nascent space so there’s
a lot of room for exciting innovation and creative solutions. I hope to bring a big picture
perspective to Pickle, i.e. thinking about where we fit into the DeFi space over the next 10
years, and constantly working on technical solutions (or otherwise) to get us there. Looking
forward to working with the newly forming Team Pickle!
Udemy certificate “Ethereum and Solidity: The Complete Developers Guide”. Python,
“CrowdCoin” and a Lottery contract to the Rinkeby test network, including contract unit
testing in Mocha and front-ends in React.
I use DeFi a lot! I had a CDP very early on (before multi-collateral DAI) and was
a uniswap LP, then in 2020 until now I’ve been yield-farming on platforms such as Aave,
Compound, dYdX, Yearn, finally settling on Pickle.
Collaboration, and working well with team members; helping them out / sharing ideas
and showing what I’m working on (screen sharing, pair programming, agile/scrum develop-
ment etc.), writing detailed documentation. Hard-working, and willing to pivot ideas and
change direction quickly depending on the community/market needs.
Other useful experience
I hold a MSc in Physics, PhD in Computational Chemistry, and worked as a postdoc
researcher for 2.5 years in the same field.
10 years Linux experience, with coding and scripting in python, Matlab, Fortran, Linux
bash terminal (grep, awk, sed, etc.), LaTeX. Machine learning: 1 year experience. Solv-
ing maths equations computationally (e.g. numerical integration, differential equations). I
performed and wrote code to analyse large-scale molecular simulations (high performance
computing) at the comp. chem. departments of 2 universities (6.5 years exp., PhD and post-
Technical/scientific writing and presentation skills, published in over 10 scientific re-
search articles and presented my work at science conferences. My thesis is full of equations!
I hope you consider me for the position!
