About the Role

Being a Blockchain Security Engineer involves optimizing blockchain data structures, writing crypto algorithms, working with teammates on new designs and optimizations, and collaborating with junior and senior teammates on implementation and code review.

We are looking to hire someone with a passion for Solidity, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), and security.

Candidates should understand the technical subtleties of security best practices and have  the ability to deconstruct and hack smart contracts.

This is a challenging position hacking, modeling, scanning, auditing, designing and enhancing the security of smart contracts comprehensively.

A significant part of the work can be done remotely wherever you are; little travel is anticipated (most of the technical team works remotely around the world).

There's also opportunity to stay ahead of demand and lead and build out this team in case that's also of interest.

We are looking for exceptionally intellectual, bright and technically driven individuals. We will be addressing challenges that have not been encountered before while borrowing from patterns in previous software architectures.
