Zectonal is looking for a Rust Developer - All Levels

    We are currently in the middle of a significant, twenty-year inflection point within the technology industry. The era of overvalued unicorns, inefficient FAANG-like software companies, over-hyped and over-funded AI firms, and unimaginative consultancies is upon us.

    For several years, Zectonal has strategically positioned itself for this moment in history. Our time is now. Is this your time to… escape the herd to do something different and take a risk with making history?

    We recognize Rust is a relatively new programming language, so we are seeking out individuals who have just as much passion about Rust as us,and are willing to learn to become experts over time.

    As a Rust developer at Zectonal, you will be responsible for the following high-level activities:

    · Make frequent common-sense decisions that are required to be pragmatic and aligned to the interests of the company specifically to the development of our products

    · Communicate frequently and accurately decisions and tradeoffs made during development of our products

    · Collaborate daily on the tracking of bi-weekly development milestones, issue tracking and resolution, and product architecture

    · Participate in the development, tracking, and execution of business Objective & Key Results (“OKR’s”)

    · Ensuring you enjoy what you do

    Zectonal is still an early-stage startup where all employees of the firm are expected to participate in core technology related activities. All employees are required to possess expert-level knowledge in their respective domains. A Rust developer is required to know and stay adept of the following related technology areas

    · Rust’s evolving core capabilities and standard library

    · Working knowledge of Rust’s borrow checker, lifetime concepts, and stack/heap memory usage

    · Working knowledge of asynchronous programming in the context of Rust runtimes and libraries

    · Working knowledge of Rust’s common collections and their performance tradeoffs

    · Knowledge of several specific crates that are deemed critical dependencies related to encryption, data query, communication, and data storage

    · Knowledge of Rust’s build and test tooling and associated best practices

    · Knowledge of benchmarking performance and engineering for size bloat

    Zectonal continues to offer aggressive compensation packages and embrace a culture of innovation and expert knowledge.
