What is Harmony?

Our open infrastructure is a revolutionary high-throughput, low-latency, and low-fee consensus platform designed to power decentralized economies of the future. This platform aims to provide a consensus protocol over the open Internet at 10 million transactions per second with 100-millisecond latency.
Harmony’s goal is to be 1,000+ times faster and cheaper than Bitcoin and Ethereum. We believe scalability requires optimization across multiple layers. Our full-stack approach applies 10x innovations in networking, systems, and consensus algorithms.

Why work for Harmony?

* You will have the opportunity to work with a team of exceptionally talented engineers (see our founding story), who live by the values of empathy, passion and excellence.
* You will be developing a high performance and scalable blockchain that will enable new decentralized economies through use cases like ai-data marketplaces, decentralized maps and many others.
* We are still at the early stage of blockchain or decentralized ledger technologies. If you strongly believe in this space, this is a unique opportunity to become a part of a pioneering project.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for hard-working software engineers who, like us, are passionate about building a global-scale decentralized future. We’re looking for some of the following attributes in our next rockstar engineer:

* BS/MS degree in Computer Science or related technical field.
* Fast learner with ability to take ownership from specs to production; strong understanding of back-end development.
* Demonstrate solid software engineering practices such as modular, extensible code with understanding of testing methodology and ability to write good documentation.
* Interest/experience in building scalable infrastructure or distributed systems.
* Interest/experience in Go, Rust is a major plus, but not necessary.
