Head of Bridges

  • Gnosis
Full time Engineering

Job Description

Gnosis Chain is the product of the merger of Gnosis and xDai. As one of Ethereum’s earliest sidechains, Gnosis Chain has quiet but significant real world usage and will embark on an aggressive technical roadmap with the objective of accelerating Ethereum. Gnosis Chain is also where Ethereum’s colorful and quirky spirit lives on, as the original home that incubated many defining projects like POAP, Burner Wallet, Dark Forest, and Perpetual Protocol. 

Gnosis Beacon Chain launched in November of 2021 and will merge with Gnosis Chain when Ethereum merges. GBC has over 100k validators and aims to be the third most decentralized blockchain. Gnosis Chain currently does not have a trustless bridge, which we are looking to remedy. A proposal by the 0xparc team for a zk light client based bridge passed in July and we know that other teams are working on trustless bridges as well.

What you will do

  • Keep up to date with the bridge design space and open research questions
  • Coordinate with the different teams working on Gnosis Bridges
  • Make sure the bridges are built to specification
  • Make sure the bridges are audited
  • Own the migration of the omni bridge to a trustless bridge
  • Own partnerships with third party bridge and bridge liquidity providers
  • Work closely with the communications, community and business development team
  • Be active in the community

Who you are

  • You understand the bridge design space well
  • You understand the tradeoffs of bridge architectures and different implementations
  • You have hands-on solidity development experience
  • You are able to communicate with different technical teams and stakeholders effectively
