Smart Contracts Engineer
Axelar is a decentralized interoperability fabric that bridges multiple blockchain platforms. Powered by Byzantine consensus, cryptography, and mechanism design protocols, Axelar allows applications that live on different blockchains to communicate with each other. Towards this, we’re building a distributed network, APIs and tools to make it easy to build cross-chain decentralized applications. We’re growing our technical team and looking for engineers who’re interested in building the new financial stack from the ground up.
Axelar is a venture-backed blockchain start-up. It was founded by Sergey Gorbunov (Assis. Prof @uWaterloo; Ph.D. MIT) and Georgios Vlachos (M.Eng., MIT; Int. Math Olympiad Gold Medalist). Previously, they were on the founding team at Algorand where they headed cryptography and mathematics groups, respectively, and worked on the design and development of the core consensus and platform.
Our team published in dozens of prestigious venues across cryptography, math, and distributed systems.
We are excited about the potential of blockchain networks and the opportunity they create to democratize and improve the financial system. You will be joining the founding team and help shape the project’s vision and technology.
