In addition to continuing the design and development of a DPoS-based layer 1 blockchain platform, you will contribute to the definition of software development kits that facilitate third-party developers’ use of the platform, contribute to the development of default/early decentralized products on the network, and provide the architectural foundation for our long-term vision of user data ownership, user data privacy and the centrality of direct payments to users in the advertising and attention economies.

You will work closely with engineers, product managers and researchers to ensure the delivery of world-class user experience for end-users and developers alike. You are a hands-on engineer and will also work with fellow engineers to mentor and develop them, as you intervene in the development of key aspects of the platform.
