Full time Back-end development Blockchain developer Engineering

Job Description

Polygon zkEVM is the first open-source zk-Rollup providing complete EVM opcode equivalence for a frictionless user experience and the security of Ethereum.
A zk-Rollup is a layer 2 construction on top of Ethereum that solves its scalability through mass transfer processing rolled into a single transaction. The "zero-knowledge proof" (ZK) technology is used to present and publicly record the validity and correctness of the rolled transfers processed on the Ethereum blockchain. By storing just the proof and the compressed data of a batch of transfers, the efficiency and the throughput of the network is multiplied.
We offer remote and flexible work. You can expect a warm welcome from a friendly and international team that will support you in your personal and professional growth. This is an exciting opportunity to take an active part in the blockchain space and contribute to the decentralization of the future.
We're looking for a Golang developer to join our Backend team and help develop the node that will be operating the EVM zkRollup. Your task scope will include implementing Merkletrees, Ethereum interfaces (read/write smart contracts), EVM logic, as well as more “traditional” backend features such as APIs, DBs, etc. In addition, you will collaborate with team members in making architectural decisions, choosing best practices, and bringing in new ideas.
This is an exciting opportunity to take an active part in the blockchain space and contribute to the decentralization of the future.
What will you do?
- Design and implement quality backend architectures that connect with blockchain.
- Develop high-quality, performant, modern, clean and readable code within tight deadlines.
- Take ownership of the development and maintenance of the project from ideation to deployment.
- Work with the engineering, design, protocol and product teams collaboratively, contributing ideas that add value to our product roadmap and company goals.
We are looking for someone with the following skills and knowledge:
- Minimum 7 years experience in designing and implementing quality backend architectures.
- Minimum 3 years experience working with Golang.
- Understanding of blockchain systems, specially Ethereum.
- Basic knowledge of cryptographic primitives such as public/private keys, hash functions and Merkletrees (understand how to use them, not implement them).
- Experience working with git.
