You want to be a major contributor to an ambitious project's design and architecture? You're not afraid to try new things and push boundaries? You take great delight in taking on challenges? You're seeking for a thrilling and blooming tech-first business and a caring and collaborating environment? Read on!
We are developing a next-generation ecosystem of interoperable blockchains based on zero-knowledge proofs that provides tamper resistance and data privacy.
Purpose of the job
We are looking for a talented, forward-thinking and ambitious cryptographer to help us research and develop cutting-edge cryptosystems to implement on the Topos platform.
You should guide and provide direction and advice to junior members of the team.
Your passion and expertise in cryptography will be used daily as you interact with software engineers and mathematicians, driving changes and building the Topos network.
What you'll be doing
In a nutshell, half of us are academics in mathematics and cryptography, and the other half software engineers. We are dispatched all over the world, with teams in Europe and the US, and our brand new HQ located in Boston, MA, United States. The team is coming from many places such as CERN, École Normale Supérieure, Telecom Paris, UCL, Ubisoft and InfoSec. We strive for a transparent and thoughtful collaboration between autonomous, efficient and caring people.

Toposware is an equal opportunities employer, and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
Toposware’s technology paves the way for a heterogeneous ecosystem of public and private blockchain networks communicating with each other in a completely decentralized and trustless manner. Our innovations in the field of cryptography and distributed systems allow for a new class of multi-chain protocols, meaning that businesses and developers are no longer constrained by immature blockchain technology or previously intractable technical barriers. Organizations and developers can now focus on developping real solutions unlocking the true potential of a decentralized Internet. Topos's architecture does not rely on consensus to ensure consistent ordering of certificates, and as such permits a simpler, more efficient and more robust system. Additionally, message validity and authentication are enforced by a universal interface that enables seamless communication between blockchain networks. Our solution is designed such that the developer wishing to implement our technology does not need to know the details of the underlying protocol. Our software development kit works as an abstraction, allowing the developer to deploy its own custom blockchain very easily.
