Program in OCaml to augment the Mina protocol.

Role overview

We seek an Engineering Manager to take responsibility for building novel software technology in the world of blockchains - decentralized computing systems that put people back in control of their digital lives.

About Us

Mina Foundation is a public benefit corporation serving the Mina Protocol, the world's lightest blockchain. Mina Protocol's native cryptocurrency, MINA, is the first with a small constant-size blockchain. The Foundation supports participants, strategically allocates resources, ensures network health and security, promotes adoption, and champions MINA in the wider world. Mina solves 3 of the most difficult challenges in the blockchain space: privacy, scalability, and decentralization.

Join the team realizing this vision.

Profile

You, as Engineering Manager, will bear full responsibility for at least one software engineering team, for the delivery of product features, and for the accomplishment of team missions. You must be a leader skilled at creating engagement and productivity. This role requires that you understand very well how to engineer and deliver software; you could do it all yourself, if you had more time. You must be effective at coaching project management skills to your team. You must thrive in an organization that changes quickly and grows fast.

The Mina codebase uses a variety of programming languages, most notably OCaml. You must be comfortable engineering with all of these technologies. The ability to understand technical papers with applied mathematical content is required.

Responsibilities

As an Engineering Manager, you will:

  • Define and document the missions for teams.
  • Deliver and maintain software throughout its entire lifecycle.
  • Create an aligned team in a context of competing objectives.
  • Produce an engineering environment with heavy emphasis on testing and testability.
  • Morph DevOps processes to be more effective.
  • Coach software engineers to improve professionally.
  • Guide the development and the documentation of the code base so that it becomes more cloud friendly, more developer friendly, and easier to adopt.
  • Transform the input of the Product team into engineering deliverables.
  • Contribute to the software engineering hiring process.
  • Tolerate a quickly changing competitive landscape.
  • Coordinate well in projects that cross organizational boundaries.

Mina Foundation

Mina Foundation stewards the Mina Protocol - the world's lightest blockchain, powered by participants. Our team is remote, and funded by top investors (including FTX, Coinbase Ventures, Polychain, Metastable, and Three Arrows). Mina Foundation is overseen by a team of industry-leading experts.

Opportunity

We work on technologies with the potential to reimagine social structures. It is important to incorporate diverse perspectives from conception through realization. This is your chance to join a small, collaborative team and to work on fascinating cross-disciplinary problems that span cryptography, engineering, product design, economics, and sociology.

We offer competitive compensation both in salary and equity as well as top-of-the-market benefits.

The Mina Foundation stewards the Mina Protocol – the world’s lightest blockchain, powered by participants. Our team is globally distributed. We are funded by top investors (including Coinbase Ventures, Polychain, Metastable and Three Arrows). The Mina Foundation is overseen by a stellar team of industry-leading experts. We're on a mission to create a vibrant decentralized network and open programmable currency—so we can all participate, build, exchange and thrive. It’s Time to Own Our Future Living in today’s world requires giving up a lot of control. Every day, we give up control of intimate data to large tech companies to use online services. We give up control of our finances to banks and unaccountable credit bureaus. We give up control of our elections to voting system companies who run opaque and unauditable elections. Even when we try to escape this power imbalance and participate in blockchains, most of us give up control and trust to third parties to verify transactions. Why? Because running a full node requires expensive hardware, unsustainable amounts of electricity and tons of time to sync increasingly heavier and heavier chains. But it doesn’t have to be this way. That’s why we created Mina. In June of 2017, O(1) Labs kicked off an ambitious new open source project to design a layer one protocol that could deliver on the original promise of blockchain—true decentralization, scale and security. Rather than apply brute computing force, Mina offers an elegant solution using advanced cryptography and recursive zk-SNARKs. Over the past five years, our team together with our incredible community have launched and learned through several testnet phases. And now, at long last, we are proud to introduce Mina to the wider world. Here, developers can build powerful applications like Snapps3 (SNARK-powered apps) to offer financial services without compromising data privacy and programmable money that anyone can access trustlessly from their phones. And that’s just the beginning. While there will still be challenges to come, the world’s lightest, most accessible blockchain is ready to be powered by a whole new generation of participants. Here’s to a more efficient, elegant and fair future – for all of us.
