  • Meticulousness to lay out priorities and methodically make progress towards the goal
  • Good communication skills to convey your ideas and discuss with team members for technical challenges
  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or a related field

We'd Love If You Have:

  • Experience with internals of NEAR protocol or other blockchains
  • Professional experience with Rust alternatively but less preferred C++ or Go
