  • You'll have opportunities to present your work at conferences 👏


  • Believe everyone has the right to privacy 🔒
  • Think technology should be frictionless (documentation is important to you!)
  • Are comfortable with ambiguity and taking on a leadership role in engineering 👩‍💻
  • Have significant experience as a backend engineer and/or proficiency in a systems programming language (such as C or Rust)
  • May be a bit rusty in linear algebra and discrete math but enjoyed these subjects when you studied them
  • Are excited to get your hands dirty learning new math and cryptography (with help of course!) ✍️
  • Look forward to collaborating with others
  • Are excited to develop and mentor other engineers 🤝

We offer...
