Abacus aims to make the "Which chain(s) should I deploy on?" question obsolete.

Role overview

At Abacus Works, the team is working on Abacus, an inter-blockchain messaging platform. Our mission is to empower developers to build the next generation of multi-chain decentralized applications.

Abacus Works is seeking a Senior Smart Contract Engineer to join as an early engineering team hire.

In this role you will

  • Design and implement the PoS protocol that secures the Abacus network
  • Design and implement contract primitives and utilities for applications building on top of Abacus.
  • Design and implement the Abacus DAO
  • Set and maintain smart contract best practices within the team
  • BONUS: Help grow the team

For this role you have

  • Experience building and maintaining Solidity smart contract systems in "production" securing non-trivial amounts of value
  • Ability to operate independently under uncertainty
  • Strong sense of initiative and ownership
  • BONUS: Experience with non-EVM smart contract development

What is Abacus? Abacus is a developer platform that allows users to build interchain decentralized applications. Applications built on top of Abacus can share state across multiple blockchains using Abacus' generalized cross-chain messaging protocol. Abacus isn’t a blockchain. Abacus is how you build truly interchain applications. What problem does Abacus solve? Abacus aims to make the "Which chain(s) should I deploy on?" question obsolete. In traditional web development, the choice of hosting environment is mostly an afterthought. While material differences exist between cloud providers, the experience that the developer can deliver to their users is not meaningfully impacted by this choice. On the other hand, a web3 developer's choice of hosting environment can have existential implications for them and their users. Decentralized applications have largely succeeded due to accessibility and composability, but applications are only accessible and composable within the chain on which they're deployed. Until now. We envision a world where developers think more about the application they're building than the substrate they're building it on. Where developers and applications are not tied to a single chain. Where developers can build applications that are accessible from everywhere and composable with everything. How does Abacus work? Abacus is a generalized messaging protocol that allows applications to communicate between blockchains. With a simple smart contract call, Alice on Ethereum can send a message to Bob on Avalanche. Abacus is secured by a proof-of-stake validator set in combination with a novel approach to application-specific security we call sovereign consensus
