WHAT YOU’LL BRING

  • 5+ years of relevant experience in the field of cryptography. 
  • Excellent knowledge of number-theoretical problems related to asymmetric cryptography, hash functions, commitments, and digital signatures. 
  • Experience in homomorphic encryption, identification protocols, and zero-knowledge proofs.
  • Experience in multi-party computation.
  • Analytic skills and the mindset of a continuous learner. 
  • Experience in one or more programming languages: Scala, Rust, C++, or Python.

* Accountability, an ownership of the end-to-end result.

  • A passion for sharing knowledge with your team, the organization, and a broader community. 
  • Fluency in English.

Bonus to have
