About EigenLabs

EigenLabs is more than just a leading name in the blockchain space. We’re the driving force behind EigenLayer, a game-changing restaking platform scaling Ethereum's security to the entire crypto ecosystem, as well as EigenDA, a hyperscale DA platform for Ethereum rollups.

The vision of EigenDA is simple: Imagine a world where blockchain projects break free from the shackles of the scaling trilemma. In today's blockchain ecosystem, each service is typically secured by its own tokenized trust-network. With EigenDA, rollups can build upon the established security of the Ethereum trust network, without sacrificing scalability, security or decentralization.

THE ROLE

As a Blockchain Engineer you will leverage your skills and knowledge of decentralized systems to create technologies that power the world’s most innovative crypto projects. Rollups are an incredibly complex software category, and they will be key to how all blockchains scale. Your efforts building integrations onto EigenDA, and generating technical buzz around it, will directly impact the success of the project.

This is an opportunity to work with the biggest projects in crypto, as rollups become the scaling strategy for Ethereum. In this role, you’ll also be sent to conferences to participate in panels and give talks, so it’s a chance to lend your voice to shape the future of blockchain technology.
If you’re looking to collaborate with a talented team of engineers, driving innovation and inventing groundbreaking technologies, we look forward to hearing from you!

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection.

Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.


Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
