Kadena is hiring a
Web3 Haskell Engineer

Compensation: $120k - $180k

Location: NY New York City, New York, United States

About the Opportunity

We are looking for Haskell engineers who are interested in further developing Kadena’s public blockchain and settlement layer, Chainweb. The settlement layer is at once a consensus mechanism along with everything needed to execute and settle transactions using Kadena’s native smart contract language, Pact.

We are looking for well-rounded junior-mid level candidates, ideally with some exposure to functional programming languages such as Haskell, or Ocaml.

This position will report directly to our Head of Core Engineering, with the opportunity to grow with the role and company.

How You'll Make An Impact

  • Collaborate in the design, implementation, deployment, and maintenance of business-critical software.
  • Improve the stability and performance of our blockchain and its networking layers
  • Capture and analyze system logs and performance metrics from production environments to diagnose and solve issues.
  • Metrize, optimize, and improve the performance of transactions executed on the public blockchain.

What Sets You Apart

  • We’re interested in candidates who have or are interested in gaining production experience building widely distributed, fault-tolerant systems.
  • If you have a distributed system background, we’re interested in improving our P2P network layer, how transactions are gossiped through the network, proving properties of our expander graph solution to sharding, and refining the tools by which we monitor and assess overall network health.
  • If you have a background working in blockchain we are interested in expertise at costing the block-making algorithm, making tokenomics decisions, and working with systems that extend the capabilities of L1 by involving proof-connected L2 systems.
  • If you have experience building languages, we are interested in individuals who would like to step up to building and working on production-quality languages, as well as their compilers, execution layers and the various accouterments of their usage in the blockchain space.
  • We’re particularly interested in people who are sold on the benefits of reasoning in a functional program setting, and enthusiastic about the prospect of learning the Haskell language more deeply.
