Senior Smart Contract Engineer

  • Axiom
Full time Blockchain developer Engineering

Job Description

We are looking for a senior smart contract engineer to join a startup using zero-knowledge proofs to scale smart contract applications.  You will be responsible for leading development and deployment of the Axiom smart contracts which interface with ZK proofs generated off-chain.  This will involve designing and implementing the on-chain API call interface, implementing smart contracts for custom integrations with partners, and implementing a Solidity SDK.  Your work will require implementing secure and efficient systems and making design decisions to empower developers using Axiom while maximizing security and auditability.

Your day-to-day work will involve extending and optimizing our core interfaces while supporting custom integrations we build with our partners on top of Axiom.  We are looking for someone with knowledge of secure smart contract design patterns, empathy for smart contract developers, and a security mindset.  We also value the ability to design tasteful and usable smart contract interfaces.


  • Fluency with Solidity and the EVM.

  • Experience with developer tools for smart contract application developers (Hardhat, Foundry).

  • Experience deploying smart contracts in production.

  • Security and ownership mindset.

About Us

We empower developers to build novel decentralized applications with the power of ZK. We believe blockchain applications have an unlimited appetite for data and compute, and zero-knowledge proofs are the key to providing it. We are tackling the hard research and engineering problems necessary to make ZK accessible to smart contract developers.

We are a small, well-funded team of researchers and developers backed by leading crypto investors. Our team previously wrote some of the most performant open-source ZK circuits, published number theory research in top mathematics journals, and worked in high frequency trading. Working as part of our team involves:

  • Working in-person at our New York office (remote possible but not preferred).

  • Competitive salary, equity, and benefits.

  • Working closely with a small elite team of researchers and developers.

We hope you will join us in our mission to unleash the power of ZK for crypto applications.
