Full time Cryptography Research

Job Description

Seeking an experienced cryptographer to help us research and develop state of the art cryptosystems to upgrade the internet.

Research at Protocol Labs

This isn't an ordinary Research Scientist position.  Your expertise is mostly driven by both a hunger to learn and a need to work toward solving important problems.  Our research scientists are granted both the freedom to develop their knowledge by working on novel applications, and a responsibility to contribute those skills toward advancing the flagship projects of Protocol Labs.  You’ll feel at home working with us if your knowledge and optimism enables you to name a few unusual possible approaches when you’re first presented with a problem that people often consider intractable. 
We see cryptography often acting as the last line of defense in a world that’s rife with malicious actors.  We examine a broad spectrum of potential projects, like Filecoin, that rely on providing various cryptographic guarantees to users.  Achieving these guarantees in practice often requires drawing from or advancing the frontiers of cryptographic protocols.  As a result, we seek cryptographers who can discover, conceive, incorporate, and implement new techniques.
