About the position

Ditto aims to expand the internet beyond traditional reach. Our groundbreaking edge sync platform is powered by peer-to-peer database technology that runs on mobile, web, IoT, and server systems, enables devices to sync data in real-time even without the internet.

Want to build the next-generation of overlay network technology? Do you love writing Rust? At Ditto we bet on the language to power our cross-platform data sync system. We are growing our team and looking for others similarly passionate about the language and very hard networking problems! The ideal candidate has professional experience with Rust and/or previous work experience with C++/C to design and develop networking infrastructure. At Ditto, we have no shortage of hard technical problems, such as mesh networking, replication protocols, CRDTs, and database design, just to name a few! Additional experience in any of these areas is a plus!

You will work collaboratively with our small but growing team, to deliver cutting edge cross-platform SDKS that work on mobile devices, WebAssembly-run browsers, IoT, and backend servers with ever greater networking capabilities. We are investing heavily into Rust as we aim to create bindings for various languages with a one-click deployment. Our core networking and mesh logic lives in Rust but must be flexible to work across various OS or hardware systems - creating a common overlay network to reliably and quickly transmit data.

Work with a remote team, manage your own time, and tackle interesting problems. Ditto is an equal opportunity employer with people from many different cultures and countries. We celebrate diversity and are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, skillsets, and perspectives, and to providing our employees with a rewarding and inclusive work environment.
