We are looking for a talented and motivated Senior Rust Engineer to join the Cryptography team at O(1) Labs as a contractor. We are building on the first cryptocurrency protocol with a succinct blockchain, Mina Protocol. This is a chance to join a small, collaborative team and have a ton of independence while working on fascinating problems that span software engineering, systems design, cryptography, and computing. We offer competitive compensation.

The Role

You will be working on cutting-edge projects, applying Mina's cryptographic protocols, specially Zero Knowledge, in new and exciting ways.

The role includes:

  • Working with HTTP and TLS protocols.
  • Integrating the Rust app with Typescript.
  • Creating security protocol stacks and crypto libraries.
  • Writing efficient, secure, high-quality clean code.
  • Applying the right design patterns in different scenarios.
  • Writing automation and integration tests.
  • Conveying complex technical topics in a clear non-technical way.

There is no need to have prior experience in blockchain or cryptocurrency, however experience in Rust is necessary.

The ideal candidate will be motivated and excited to engage on green field projects and will have interest or experience in any of the following:

  • Blockchain and/or cryptocurrency
  • Distributed systems
  • Networking
  • Security
  • Functional programming
  • Programming language theory
  • Security

Experience in Rust is the only hard requirement; we're more interested in learning about your individual background! 

About Us

O(1) Labs is the team that incubated, launched and contributes to Mina Protocol, a Layer 1 blockchain that  compresses the blockchain from hundreds of gigabytes down to the size of a few tweets and  can scale to millions of users while remaining decentralized enough for cell phones to be fully verifying nodes.  Using the power of Mina and ZK technology we are at the forefront of building a privacy centered Web 3.0. 

With this work we are driving the potential to reimagine social structures. We believe in and are dedicated to incorporating diverse perspectives from conception through realization.

We are based in San Francisco, CA but our team is spread out around the world and offer competitive compensation both in salary and equity as well as top-of-the-market benefits.

If you'd be interested in talking further, please get in touch by sending an email with your resume and the subject "Senior Rust Engineer [zkOracles]" to jobs@o1labs.org.

We are committed to building a diverse, inclusive company. People of color, LGBTQ individuals, women, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
