Cryptographic Engineer | Zero-Knowledge Proof
Up to $275k + Equity | Full Remote
We are seeking a highly skilled Cryptographic Engineer (Rust) to join our team of Zero-Knowledge Proof (ZKP) specialists.
Our focus is on driving standards and functionality in the creation of state proofs, underpinning the creation of new use cases and providing improved alternatives to Messaging Protocols, or Bridges.
Already we have a team of world-leading specialists who together are architecting and implementing a cross-chain infrastructure that enables generalised state proofs; but in line with further funding injections and broadening team requirements, we are now seeking to expand our core engineering team.
At its core, the role requires someone that is experienced with implementing cryptographic primitives in Rust - this should include a range of concepts, including ZKPs, vector commutments, as well as elliptic curve cryptography.
You will also have:
- Experience working with modern Rust-based proving systems
- An understanding of theoretical ZKPs
- A focus on low-level optimisations to proof constructions and distributed proving systems
- Experience in cryptographic libraries (Rust)
These technical skills should also be supported by excellent communication and collaboration skills. Individuals with Masters - PhD level studies in a relevant area are also preferred.
In return for your commitment, you can expect:
- A salary of up to $250,000 per annum
- An equity package
- A token package
- Full remote working
