Cryptographers at Iron Fish are specialized in practical and secure cryptographic protocols for blockchains. You will work to design, develop, and prove new and secure cryptographic protocols for a distributed system.
We are a small startup and have support from some of the top VCs in the cryptocurrency world (Electric Capital (Avichal Garg), Elad Gil, Metastable (Naval Ravikant and Lucas Ryan), A Capital (Kartik Talwar), Slow Ventures (Jill Carlson), Dylan Field (Figma), John Lilly, Jack Abraham (Atomic), Juan Benet (Filecoin), Jack Chou, Balaji Srinivasan, Lemniscap (Roderik van der Graaf), James Prestwich, and Linda Xie).
Iron Fish mission is to enable free flow of assets through easy to use, accessible, and private cryptocurrency transactions.
If you are excited to work on uncharted territory in decentralized computing and cutting edge cryptography, we are looking forward to meeting you!
What should I expect working here?
You will be challenged and always learning. This project spans concepts of distributed systems, heavy-duty cryptography, UI/UX challenges of simplifying complex information, cross-chain communication, and much more.
You will be encouraged to think about world economies and what it takes to build a universal privacy layer for all crypto assets. You will build tools to bring equality to the global economy so that everyone has access to complete financial sovereignty.
We value kindness, curiosity, and the willingness to learn and to teach. 😊
What you’ll do:
As an engineer in a fast growing company, the day-to-day may vary. But here is some of what you can expect to do:
- Build, document and maintain tests, features, and infrastructure
- Communicate and document architectural designs and requirements
- Write high quality, well-tested code to meet the needs of your customers
What we are looking for:
Below are just some examples of what your background may look like—go ahead and apply even if your experience is a little different.
- Worked in at least one of our focus areas:
- Cryptocurrency architecture development
Nice to haves:
- You have experience with Blockchains (such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc..)
- You’ve worked on zk-SNARKs or zero knowledge cryptography
- You are interested in world economies or what it takes to build a global currency
