Job description

An innovative decentralized analytics platform built by a fast-growing startup is looking for a Cryptographic Algorithm Designer. The selected candidate will be working closely with a team of professionals to drive improvements. The company is backed by some of the top blockchain organizations and VCs that are leading the industry with their next-gen solutions. This is an extremely math/cryptography-heavy role and a great opportunity for candidates to showcase their skills. 


Job Responsibilities:

  • Develop highly performant in-database procedures to ensure that SQL results are tamper-proof and cryptographically guaranteed in collaboration with expert engineers, cryptographers, and mathematicians
  • Architect and develop a novel proof of SQL mechanism
  • Construct strategies, tools, platforms, and database connections
  • For outsourced Proofs of SQL, quickly test and iterate on various cryptographic techniques/commitment schemes/database designs/algorithms
  • Codify best practices for future reuse in the form of accessible, reusable patterns, templates, and codebases 
  • Streamline the collection and management of metadata
  • Experience working with Cryptography/SNARK engineering research
  • Work with engineering leadership to design, prioritize, and guarantee that other operational components are deployed smoothly

Job Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in Engineering, Computer Science (or equivalent experience)
  • At least 3+ years of software engineering experience (or academic research) around applied math programming
  • Fluent with the mathematics required for basic cryptographic primitives
  • Experience with Rust (or other similar languages) and math-focused algorithms 
  • Ability to build a bigger, better, faster, more optimized SQL proofing mechanism
  • Solid understanding of elliptic curves and various cryptographic protocols (Diffie–Hellman key exchange, commitment schemes, hashing, etc.)
  • Knowledge and experience with SNARKs like Bulletproofs, Spartan, KZG
  • protocol, sum-check protocol, FRI commitments, etc. is nice to have
  • Experience writing/developing novel algorithms (such as sorts, searches, divide-and-conquer, etc.)
  • Ability to clearly communicate developed algorithms, e.g., by using pseudo-code
  • Ability to read and interpret research papers
  • Familiarity with Scala and other similar languages is desirable
  • Familiarity with SQL/database design is nice to have
