Working on Zk Snarks with an amazing Series A team

Role overview

O(1) Labs is seeking someone to help implement the cryptography at the heart of Coda.

Cryptography engineers will

  • Help design maximally efficient, high-assurance cryptographic primitives.
  • Research developments in the field and evaluate their applicability in our system.
  • Implement cryptographic primitives in OCaml and Rust.
  • Implement and optimize algorithms inside of zk-SNARKs using snarky.

Some recent projects we’ve worked on are implementing recursive SNARK verification, an optimized Schnorr signature scheme on a hardware wallet, and using finite-field arithmetic to simulate real arithmetic and compute “e^x” inside a SNARK.

Nice to have

  • Experience with performant implementation of cryptography.
  • Knowledge of Rust or functional programming.
  • The ability to design modular and beautiful software.
  • The ability to communicate clearly and precisely.
  • Understanding of zero-knowledge proofs.

There are no hard requirements and we’re more interested in learning about your individual background.
