Zero-knowledge cryptography is going to transform the way we use the Internet. Our mission at Ulvetanna is to accelerate the ZK revolution by delivering the most reliable and cost-efficient proof generation for web3 networks. We are building a state-of-the-art, high performance ZK proving platform from the ground up, leveraging principles of hardware/software co-design and the latest advances in both computing hardware and algorithmic research.

Tackling this challenge requires cross-disciplinary engineering expertise ranging from systems-level software programming and applied cryptography to digital logic design and datacenter architecture. We are a small, focused team from all around the world, with a track record of shipping and maintaining quality production systems. We are actively hiring more problem solvers, tinkerers, and technology magicians who love high-performance and efficiency.
