The right person has at least 2+ years of experience building rust applications in the blockchain industry and at least 1+ years developing smart contract or distributed systems protocols.

The main area of ownership for a blockchain engineer at Webb is to:

  • Design and develop rust-based smart contracts that facilitate the Webb Protocol.
  • Integrate zero-knowledge tools into core blockchain protocol modules.
  • Write specs of modules and milestones for the protocol team.
  • Mentor and provide support to junior developers.
  • Read open-source libraries and APIs and contribute to open-source repos.

Background

  • Proficiency in Rust
  • Proficiency programming with open-source libraries and blockchain APIs such as web3 / PolkadotJS
  • Understanding of blockchain technology and cryptoeconomic protocols
  • Ability to write very high quality, well-tested code

A plus

  • Experience programming with WASM.
  • Experience building cryptographic and distributed protocols
  • Experience building zero-knowledge proof systems and/or applications.

Organisation

We are a fully remote team and are incubated by Commonwealth Labs, a venture incubator. We work on slack and use Github to handle task allocation. At Webb you'll have a tremendous amount of freedom to help shape the narrative and we don't have a ton of bureaucracy, you will be free and incentivized to do your best work on your own time.
