    Join the ZKP Revolution…

    We are a dynamic and forward-thinking Startup committed to scaling zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs). Our focus is on empowering Rust developers through robust infrastructure and user-friendly tools, enabling effective building, deployment, and scaling of ZKP applications. Led by a founding team with expertise from renowned organizations, we employ folding schemes, proof aggregation, and GPU acceleration to revolutionize proof system scalability. Our vision is to shape a future of enhanced security, privacy, and decentralization.

    Job Description:

    We're seeking outstanding Infrastructure Engineers with a strong foundation in Rust and a genuine passion for emerging innovations, especially Zero-Knowledge Proofs (ZKPs)/ some Blockchain interest. Join our team to build cutting-edge libraries and systems, leveraging the latest ideas in scaling ZKP applications. We value curiosity, a drive to explore new concepts and a commitment to shaping the decentralized technology landscape.

    Key Job specifics:

    • Design, develop, and maintain scalable proof systems, libraries, and related tools for applications in Rust.
    • Collaborate with the development team to implement new cryptographic protocols.
    • Leverage GPU-based hardware acceleration and proof aggregation methods to optimize and fine-tune proof systems.
    • Stay up-to-date with emerging blockchain technologies, protocols, and best practices to continuously improve our infrastructure.
    • Contribute to the development and maintenance of robust, secure, and high-performance APIs for our developer community.

    What we look for in our Rust Engineers:

    • 2.5+ years of professional experience using Rust (of course).
    • Proficiency in common algorithms, data structures, and their computational and memory complexities, with experience implementing them from scratch.
    • A systematic problem-solving approach combined with a strong sense of ownership.
    • Experience writing production-grade, security-critical code.
    • Prior knowledge in zero-knowledge proof systems is preferred (but not 100% necessary)
    • Experience in blockchain infrastructure development or cryptography is desirable.
    • Prior experience in performance optimization is a nice plus.
