Are you the one?

The ideal candidate is an engineer with strong low-level programming and analytical skills, experienced in implementing and optimizing cryptographic primitives. Candidates should be able to work in a distributed research team, collaborating with researchers and other engineers to create proofs-of-concept of cutting-edge blockchain and cryptography protocols. We appreciate candidates who are not afraid of voicing their opinions and motivate them to ask for explanations of concepts they are not familiar with.


As a research engineer, you will participate in projects such as:

  • Implementing and optimizing cryptographic primitives (zk, FHE, etc.)
  • Implementing novel optimizations for zk-systems.
  • Building solutions for decentralized identity, verifiable credentials, and reputation systems.
  • Building on-chain protocols.


  • We look for candidates with hands-on engineering experience in any of the following:
  • Zero-knowledge proofs, including
    • zk-proof systems β€” transparent and non-transparent.
    • zkDSLs such as Cairo, Noir, o1js.
    • Folding schemes.
  • Fully homomorphic encryption
  • Multi-party computation
  • Programming in Rust

Nice to have:

  • Knowledge about Solidity.
  • Background in cryptography or a related mathematical field.

Perks and benefits:

  • Equity
  • Fully remote
  • Flexible working hours
