The Pillar Project and 2030

The Pillar project is building a next-generation platform/ecosystem around our multi-purpose digital wallet. The wallet will have many products, services, and features, from ecommerce to exchange to services, comparison engines, communication, social networking, and more. Learn more at www.pillarproject.io. We are now setting up a blockchain lab to build prototypes and create standards that will lead the world in tokenomics, the future of tickets, and the future of money. Most of what we do will be applicable to the wallet and all of it will be open source.

Pillar Labs is looking for a blockchain chief scientist: someone who knows all the consensus algorithms, attack vectors, token standards, forks, coin splitting, ASICs vs GPUs, Turing-complete vs special-purpose virtual machines, and new chains coming into the market. Must be able to code in Solidity, spin up any node, and tinker with any chain. Must have at least some serious software security background. At the very least - and this is beginner level - you must be able to explain most of these: elliptic-curve pairing, what HashGraph is, what a DAG is, what's wrong with Ripple, how Merkle trees protect blockchains, how stablecoins work (or don't), various proof-of-stake attacks and how to mitigate them. You'll be asked these and harder questions in an interview. It's also helpful to understand at least a few of these: ontologies, taxonomies, AI, communication protocols, privacy, legal issues, zero-knowledge proofs, blockchain-based identity (DID), chain analytics, databases, token protocols, curved bonding, cross-chain protocols, etc. Our goal is to do research and produce proofs of concepts that become products, not write white papers. We will be making "build, buy, or rent" decisions, so you must have a thorough knowledge of many options. This job is full-time in London. You must have a UK or EU work permit already. We pay competitively.
