Build the industry’s only scalable layer 1 Proof of Work (PoW) blockchain using Haskell
Kadena is the industry’s only scalable layer 1 Proof of Work (PoW) blockchain. The principal feature that drives Kadena is scalability, which enables Kadena to deliver infrastructure-grade performance for any blockchain project. Along with our own smart contract language Pact, Kadena's platform provides the world with the tools and environment to turn ideas and ambitions into reality. Founded by Stuart Popejoy and William Martino who created JP Morgan’s first blockchain and led the SEC’s Crypto Committee, Kadena aims to allow for true blockchain mass adoption.
At Kadena, we value diversity, curiosity, a work/life balance, and teamwork.
We are looking for Haskell engineers who are interested in further developing both the Pact language itself – including applications beyond blockchain – as well as the settlement layer, Chainweb. Candidates may choose to focus on either other of these or explore the points of intersection.
We are looking for well-rounded candidates, but also those who have specialty areas of interest. Therefore, if any of these categories describes you, there is very likely a specialized role we have available.
We don’t believe in hard and fast hiring criteria because great candidates can come from all backgrounds, but here are some attributes that we frequently find useful for the kinds of engineering problems that we work on:
Kadena is a remote-first company, with the ability to work throughout the world. We ask that your working hours include 10:00am - 13:00 EST (14:00 - 17:00 UTC) to ensure there is alignment across different timezones
