Key Responsibilities: • Work with Rust, architecting and developing software components in the areas of p2p networking, consensus algorithms, and related components. • Contribute to the design and implementation of the architecture for a production-grade node that will run in a highly adversarial environment. • A strong candidate will be able to contribute from the first month. The first task will serve to gain familiarity with the code before taking responsibility for more complex components. Ideally, you will have: • Extensive experience with low-level or network programming languages (C/C++, Rust, Go, Erlang) and enough interest in Rust to make the leap. We value the understanding and experience of systems in production more than the specific programming language. • Strong distributed systems experience, or strong network software experience. We will consider candidates with experience in distributed databases, high-performance middleware and similar, not necessarily in the blockchain industry. • Strong competency in developing and maintaining complex libraries or applications, writing clean code and proper documentation. • Experience working with software in production: debugging, instrumentation, and optimization in deployed software and production environments. • A strong alignment to our principles: https://status.im/about/#our-principles Bonus Points if: • Experience with libp2p or devp2p • Experience in blockchain technology. • Comfortable working remotely and asynchronously • Experience working for an open-source organization. [Don't worry if you don't meet all of these criteria, we'd still love to hear from you anyway if you think you'd be a great fit for this role!] Hiring Process: The hiring process for this role will be: • Interview with our People Ops team • Interview with Team Member • Interview with Engineering Lead • Interview with Logos Program Owner Compensation: The expected compensation range for this role is $160,000 - $190,000 (negotiable, dependent on how we assess your skills and experience throughout our interview process).
