  • Implement data security and protection.
  • Develop new applications from the concept inception phase to the testing phase.
  • Write and implement software solutions that integrate different systems.
  • Identify and suggest various opportunities to improve efficiency and functionality.
  • Partner with our team to define architecture and best practices
  • Write high-caliber code on a daily basis to satisfy product requirements
  • Document best practices and act as a knowledgeable resource for blockchain engineering problem solving
  • Work cross functionally to ensure alignment and collaboration
  • Communicate clearly though commit messages and documentation

Job Requirements

  • Deep understanding of blockchain and distributed ledger protocols and smart contract scripting languages (e.g. Solidity, CodeChain)
  • Ability to apply technical theories, principles and techniques into real world applications
  • Previous work with P2P Networking and distributed systems.
  • Understanding of various distributed consensus methodologies (Mining, PoS, PoW, Tendermint
  • Understanding of cryptography, including asymmetric (pub/priv key), symmetric, hash functions, encryption/signatures. ( ECDH, ECDSA, PGP and AES)
  • Experience building applications using any of the following (or similar) languages: Python, C, C++, C#, Golang, Rust.
  • Active demonstrable interest in Ethereum, Hyperledger, distributed systems, DHTs and cryptography.
  • Keep up to date on emerging capabilities in this fast growing area and identify where and how new capabilities can be applied.
  • Translate requirements from architects and product managers into functional code.
  • Think through and anticipate how hackers and others may attempt to subvert or mis-use applications
  • Passionate about technology and applying it to business solutions.
  • Enthusiasm for working in a space full of unknown unknowns, pivoting as needed, and being comfortable with not knowing the end state
  • Self-starter-able to work on his own initiative with minimal supervision.

  • Fast learner. We’re looking for software engineers who thrive on learning new technologies and don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions.
  • You have advanced knowledge of Blockchain and Distributed ledger technologies and at least one smart Contract scripting language (e.g. Solidity, CodeChain, Python, GoLang) and knowledge of or eagerness to learn: R, MongoDB / SQL
  • Fearlessness. You think a working proof-of-concept is the best way to make a point.
  • You strive on proving that speed and quality are not conflicting; that you can achieve both at the same time.
  • Versatility. In addition to having an intimate knowledge of the whole web stack, you understand how all the pieces fit together (front-end, database, network layer, etc.) and how they impact the performance of your application.
  • Strong architecture chops. You know how to build highly scalable, robust, and fault-tolerant services
  • You stay up-to-date with the latest architectural trends across blockchain technologies shaping business innovation globally.
  • Passion. You feel ownership over everything you ship; you’d never call code “released” until you’re confident it’s correct.
  • You pride yourself on efficient monitoring, strong documentation, and proper test coverage.
  • A team player. You believe that you can achieve more on a team — that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. You rely on others’ candid feedback for continuous improvement and work easily on remote and distributed teams
  • Design and business acumen. You understand requirements beyond the written word, your attention to details leads to a delightful user experience.

In your message to us please answer: If you could build/work on anything, what would you create?
