Blockchains do not scale to a global user-base of seven billion people.
We have an open position for a human-centric protocol engineer who can research, survey, design, and analyze protocols which fuse practical feasibility, cryptoeconomic security, and a deep consideration of the social and cultural contexts in which technology is used and how it affects the communities which make use of it. This role covers protocols from decentralised proof-of-humanity and decentralised UBI all the way to protocols for social key recovery and liquid democracy web-of-trust.
The primary project of Heliax is Anoma, a suite of protocols and mechanisms for self-contained self-sovereign coordination. Anoma includes a sovereign, proof-of-stake blockchain protocol that enables private, asset-agnostic cash and private bartering among any number of parties, an open-source smart contract and zero-knowledge circuit language supporting first-class formal verification, a heterogeneous consensus protocol which reifies the spectrum between sovereign and sharded security, and more. You will be working across, within, and above all of these protocols to ensure that the gestalt is in alignment with the strategic direction outlined in the Anoma vision paper of alleviating the abstractive deficit inherent in modern systems of economic interchange and providing communities the tools they need to opt out of systems which do not serve their best interests and opt in to ones which do.
Heliax is a remote-first team, currently composed of cross-disciplinary members located around the world. All of our work is open-source and benefits the public. Our work culture is characterized by open-allocation, where team members have a high degree of freedom and autonomy in choosing when to work, what to work on, and whom to work with.
Competitive compensation in a negotiable mix of salary and equity. Remote or local (Zürich/Zug, Berlin). When remote, preferred if mostly located within (+/- 7 hours) Central European time zones. Ideally someone who enjoys nature and hiking 🏔️.
