Job Description

About the Privacy and Scaling Explorations Research Group

We are a cutting-edge technological research group exploring practical applications for Zero-Knowledge Proofs and Scaling solutions. Our mission is to build the cryptographic primitives that will form the bedrock of a rich and vibrant ecosystem of decentralized applications, built on Ethereum. We do this through pure research projects, by building proofs of concept, and by facilitating the integration of technological primitives into decentralized applications. Examples of projects we are working on include zkEVM, Zkopru, Unirep, Semaphore, and MACI.

Here’s what you might want to know before reading on:

We share a passion for experimental Ethereum focused privacy and scaling solutions

We are building public goods i.e. open-source software without expectation for any profit

We are global, remote-friendly, and open to contractors

Cultural alignment with our values is very important to us. You will enjoy working with us if you have an entrepreneurial mindset and want to tackle challenges that no one else has solved yet. You are radically open-minded and keen on building the next generation of web infrastructure and decentralized systems.
