Posted on Friday, June 30, 2023

At Webb, we're building the largest private blockchain bridge protocol possible. We use modern cryptographic techniques like zero-knowledge proofs and multi-party computation to enhance privacy for users of multi-chain blockchain applications.

Our private bridge protocol is a critical piece of infrastructure that enables anyone to privately move cryptocurrency assets between blockchains. We are passionate about privacy and building products that give power and privacy back to users of blockchain protocols.

We are building multiple implementations of our protocols targetting the EVM, Substrate, and Cosmos ecosystems and plan to support more as we grow.

  • Design and develop SDKs and WASM tools for interacting with the Webb Protocol.
  • Research and implement speed and privacy optimisations for the user experience
  • Write specs of product features and milestones for the product team.
  • Mentor and provide support to junior developers.
  • Read open-source libraries and APIs and contribute to open-source repos.

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 incentivised to do your best work on your own time.
