  • Extensive knowledge and experience with Zero Knowledge proofs, cryptography, and blockchain technology.
  • Deep understanding of Zero-Knowledge proof systems (zk-SNARK, circom, Plonk/Halo2, zk-STARK), elliptic curve cryptography, and circuit design.
  • Previous experience in a similar role, where you successfully contributed to the development of complex systems using ZK proofs.
  • Strong problem-solving skills and the ability to make informed decisions quickly.
  • The ability to work collaboratively in a team environment and communicate complex concepts clearly and effectively.
  • A passion for the blockchain technology and a desire to push the boundaries of what is currently possible.
  • Knowledge of current ZK tools and frameworks, and the ability to learn new tools quickly.

Bonus if

  • Knowledge of other privacy-preserving technologies (MPC, FHE).
  • Distributed systems knowledge.
  • Knowledge or interest in other areas related to blockchain systems.
