Who are we?
We are the Nomos Team, and we are building the foundation used by other projects at Logos technology. We are researching consensus algorithms, Multi-Party Computation techniques, ZKPs and other cutting-edge technologies with the aim to take the blockchain to the next level of security, decentralization and scalability, with a special focus on privacy as a fundamental right. We are currently in a research phase, working with models and simulations. In the near future, we will start implementing the research. You will have the opportunity to participate in developing -and improving- the state of the art of blockchain technologies, as well as turning it into a reality.
- This role is dedicated to applied research on privacy networks. In our initial phases, we are dedicated to understanding and leveraging the state-of-the-art, while we identify what areas are most relevant for long-term research.
- Primarily, the researcher will contribute to the design of new architectural solutions, as well as evaluating the work of other members of the team.
- Design, specify and verify privacy networks by leveraging formal and experimental techniques.
- Build proof of concepts and prepare executable specifications for the development team.
- Regularly going through papers, bringing new ideas and staying up-to-date.
- Conducting theoretical and practical analysis of the performance of network systems.
- Collaborating with both internal and external contributors.
- Presenting research results both internally and externally (internal documents, blog posts and presentations).
Ideally, you will have
[Don’t worry if you don’t meet all of these criteria, we’d still love to hear from you anyway if you think you’d be a great fit for this role!]
- Strong background in Computer Science and Math, or a related area.
- Network design, ideally p2p and privacy protocols (mixnets, dc-networks, onion routing…).
- Coding experience.
- Deep knowledge of algorithms.
- Experience in analyzing the correctness of distributed systems.
- Comfortable with “reverse engineering” code in a number of languages including Java, Go, Rust, etc. If no experience in these languages, the ability to read and understand code of other projects is useful to understand other real-world systems.
- Keen communicator, eager to share your work in a wide variety of contexts, like internal and public presentations, blog posts and academic papers.
- Passionate about blockchain technology in general.
- A strong alignment to our principles.
- Experience working for an open-source organization.
- PhD in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related area.
- Experience in Blockchain.
- Track record of scientific publications.
The hiring process for this role will be:
- Interview with our People Ops team
- Interview with Team Lead
- Interview with Team Member
- Interview with Program Lead
The expected compensation range for this role is $110,000 - $190,000 (negotiable, dependent on how we assess your skills and experience throughout our interview process). We are happy to pay in any mix of fiat/crypto.
