Are you a networking engineer who is excited about the rise of P2P protocols? Would love to build and deploy at scale novel networking P2P protocol?

As a network engineer, your mission to work on the design and implementation of the network layer that powers the next generation peer-to-peer computation platform. This includes developing a transport protocol that enables efficient messaging between thousands of participants, novel ways of doing efficient broadcasting, network topology discovery and routing, overlay networks and handling NATs.

Key Outcomes

  1. Design the networking layer and contribute to the design of the overall NEAR’s protocol
  2. Build the set of asynchronous and high-performant libraries that powers networking layer in Rust.

Key Requirements

  1. Experience with nitty-gritty details of networking stack.
  2. Experience building asynchronous networking applications
  3. Knowledge of algorithms like Kademlia, Epidemic Boardcasting, Segment routing and others.

Ideal Candidate

Experience with Rust and Tokio or other network library.

Get to Know NEAR

NEAR is a scalable blockchain and smart contract platform designed to provide the performance and user experience necessary to bridge the gap to mainstream adoption.  Unlike other next generation blockchains, this network’s performance both scales with the total number of nodes and allows those nodes to be run on low-end devices like mobile phones, bringing potentially billions of them into the network and providing a direct path to end users.

Working at NEAR

At NEAR, you have the chance to become an early member of a world-class team with significant upside. The opportunity we are tackling will completely reshape the landscape of the web for decades to come and potentially affect billions of people.  We are funded by the top names in the industry and have attracted the best technical minds in the world.

This is a performance culture where you’ll be working alongside -- and learning from -- other top quality teammates executing at their best.  We value boldness, ownership, transparency, curiosity and experimentation. We offer all employees competitive salary and benefits plus a fully stocked office within walking distance of BART in SOMA.  

If you’re excited by the challenge of winning in the fastest moving ecosystem as a member of its best team, this might be a good fit.
