Sr. Software Engineer, Drand

  • Protocol Labs
Full time Blockchain developer Cryptography Engineering

Job Description

Define and build elegant, performant, and resilient systems for tomorrow's web. 

We are hiring Distributed Systems Engineers to work on the implementations of open source protocols like IPFS, Filecoin, Drand, and libp2p. Enthusiasm about the decentralized web and blockchains has brought an influx of people who want to use distributed systems but who don't know how to build the necessary infrastructure. We are building that infrastructure. To continue that work, we're looking for people who thoroughly understand the principles of distributed systems and cryptography, and who will lean into the challenges of applying those principles in writing open-source code that will be deployed worldwide. 

Distributed Systems Engineering at Protocol Labs

Distributed systems engineering lies at the center of many projects at Protocol Labs. With IPFS, libp2p, Filecoin, Drand, and other related projects we are laying the foundation for a more resilient, more secure, distributed version of the web. This requires rigorous engineering from protocol design through all the phases of implementation. We strike a balance between pragmatism (put it on a ship ⛴), deeply informed protocol design, and strict application of strong engineering principles. All of this happens in an environment defined by curiosity, passion, and a love for open source.
