Our mission.

At AZTEC, our mission is to drive the largest financial ecosystems onto the public blockchain, by providing the tools to deploy private transactions across these networks.

About us

We are a small and growing team of eight engineers and mathematicians. We are focused on bringing advanced zero-knowledge systems to market. We believe public blockchains need useable, efficient privacy to reach their full potential.

We are the creators and maintainers of the AZTEC Protocol, the most efficient zero-knowledge protocol built on Ethereum. You can find it here: github.com/aztecprotocol/AZTEC

We’re backed by ConsenSys, Entrepreneur First and a small group of great angel investors.

The role:

As a senior engineer, you will be architecting and implementing systems which allow end users to easily build on and interact with complex zero-knowledge systems.

You will be working across our stack, which includes client side, server side, and blockchain based components, and you’ll take an active role in making sure all components fit in the broader system.

As a senior team member you will be expected to mentor more junior team members, and you will contribute to both internally and externally facing documentation.

You will be participating in deadline setting and articulating priorities, and you should feel comfortable interacting with our users in order to get a deep understanding of the requirements.

You’ll be responsible for:

- Leading the speccing, architecture and development of new services
- Ensuring code quality by running regular code reviews, pairing with more junior team members and developing testing and deployment tooling and procedures
- Participating in interviewing and recruiting team members
- Maintaining and developing our existing stack
- Mentoring of junior team members

Skills and experience required:

- Have experience of being deeply involved in all stages of software development, from inception to shipping production ready software
- Deep understanding of the computing stack
- 5+ years experience of professional software development
- Experience mentoring junior engineers

Bonus points for:

- Interest and curiosity in blockchains and the technology behind them
- Experience working with Solidity
- Awareness of security principles and best practises
- Experience in a growing startup
- An interest in cryptography and mathematics
