Job Description

Work with a group that is developing a new internet for decentralized apps. With the technology that we're developing, you own your data and maintain your privacy, security and freedom. This technology is an open source project.
We're looking for a passionate and experienced distributed systems engineer to join a team of experts to implement a new blockchain architecture, decreasing transaction time and cost for our ecosystem, while enabling new functionality. This role is ideal for engineers who are experts in peer-to-peer protocol development, familiar with the bitcoin blockchain, and keen to build a clean-slate system from the ground up.
You will ...
  • Research, strategize and educate on methodology and best practices for blockchain design, implementation, and deployment
  • Collaborate with a team and open source community to design and build the blockchain technology with the following design goals:
    • Decreased transaction times and costs
    • Programmable payment systems
    • Programmable name management systems
    • Hybrid on-chain/off-chain programming models
    • Custom per-namespace consensus algorithms
    • Protocols for enacting soft forks
  • You will implement rigorous and thorough monitoring and testing practices to ensure the security and performance goals of blockchain infrastructure
  • Design and implement blockchain supporting tools and utilities (e.g., CLI client, tools for exploring the blockchain, monitoring, benchmarking or debugging tools)

  • Deployment of a working testnet for developers to test their decentralized applications
  • Successfully design a blockchain solution, such that it can support benchmark use-cases of our decentralized applications
  • Successful launch of blockchain solution, measured in the transaction bandwidth of our network

Minimum Qualifications

You have worked with a founding team building a blockchain, are an expert in decentralized solutions, and are passionate about building a new decentralized internet.
