Prysmatic Labs currently builds the underlying code for the Ethereum blockchain, building a more fair, open, and censorship-resistant Internet. On Ethereum, anyone can deploy software that controls digital value and is accessible around the world. Born in 2014, the Ethereum network houses billions of dollars worth of value today, hosting projects such as:
- — Global, decentralized organizations
- — Non-reserve backed, stable-value currencies
- — Fully-open, permissionless, financial applications
We believe Ethereum represents a fundamental shift in how financial and coordination systems operate. Our work is open source and accessible to anyone around the world, and we are seeking individuals that also align with these values.
We are looking for a remote, full-time Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) to keep pushing the envelope on decentralized technologies. Particularly, having experience in infrastructure, devops, and deployments of software in critical functions.
The Ethereum blockchain today suffers from a key set of problems, using a wasteful proof of work algorithm in which miners around the world spend large amounts of electricity to package transactions into blocks. For over 4 years, researchers have been working on a better, more efficient consensus algorithm known as proof of stake along with a scalability method for the system known as sharding. No blockchain so far has been able to find the right balance of security, scalability, and decentralization, and we are thrilled to work on the cutting-edge every day to accomplish this task.
We’re currently building the foundational code behind the future of the Ethereum project, known as Ethereum 2.0. Our flagship project, Prysm, is a full implementation of the next generation Ethereum blockchain written in Golang. Prysm utilizes the top technologies for production servers and interprocess communication, using Google's gRPC library, Docker, Kubernetes, and more.
Ethereum 2.0 is a multi-year project split into phases. The first phase launched December 1, 2020. At the time of writing, the Ethereum 2.0 network secures around $16 billion USD worth of value. Prysm runs a large portion of the network today. At Prysmatic Labs, the lines of code you write will be mission critical towards securing a multi-billion dollar network.
