  • Reworking the Gas Model for new Cryptoeconomic models
  • Enhancing Transaction Processing
  • Implementing difference consensus algorithms
  • Extending geth to support HSMs
  • Cross-chain interoperability

You should be familiar with Blockchain fundamentals and have enough experience of using them to understand areas that you feel need to be improved. You should be open-minded and prepared to engage in design discussions, using empirical evidence to back up assumptions. You should be a team player and used to working towards a common goal. Clearmatics has an ambitious program to create a suite of Blockchain tools and products that will enhance the ecosystem and form the basis for future products and businesses.

  • Have a demonstrable interest in Ethereum / the cryptocurrency space

The successful candidate should:

  • Be comfortable working in a new field
  • Experience with networks and concurrent programming
