Design and implementation of network protocols based on cutting-edge cryptography research.

At Matter Labs, we are building ZK Sync: technology for scalable smart contracts with privacy, secured by the latest generation of zero-knowledge proofs.

The mission of ZK Sync is to scale public permissionless blockchains (such as Ethereum) to millions of users in a completely trustless manner -- relying on pure Math. Succinct zero-knowledge proofs are currently the only viable way to achieve this goal, and we are proud to be one of a few companies in the world with a strong expertise in this field.

This is an extremely ambitious and technologically challenging task with a lot of unknowns. However, if we succeed, in a few years it will have the same impact on the global trade and finance as Skype had on the telecom industry.

The Role

We are looking for talented cryptographers to join our core team. Your task scope will include design and implementation of the latest zero-knowledge proof systems (e.g. https://eprint.iacr.org/2019/1400.pdf).

We expect you to independently conduct research in your area of ownership, design, implement and document solutions.

Your Profile

- You are driven by passion, curiosity, and desire to make a meaningful contribution to the world.
- Strong background in math / information security.
- Proficiency in Rust, C++, Golang or similar languages. We are working primarily with Rust, but prior experience with this language is not mandatory.
- Experience implementing cryptographic protocols.
- Interest in Zero-Knowledge Proofs (SNARKs, STARKs, Bulletproofs, etc).
- Ownership mindset and a track record of successfully accomplished projects.

The Offer

We offer above-average compensation and equity options. You can work from one of nice our offices (Berlin/Kiev) or remotely.

We have a small focused team. No time tracking, minimum bureaucracy, only results matter. We’ll provide you with anything you need to learn, grow and be more productive.

All our code is open source: https://github.com/matter-labs

About Matter Labs

Matter Labs was born out of values of freedom, self-ownership, privacy and decentralization, which the founding team is taking very seriously. Our mission is to enhance economic freedom for millions of people.

We received a grant from the Ethereum Foundation and recently raised a $2M seed round (you can find out more at our blog).

All our work is open-source. You’ll be working closely with world's top engineers and scientists from Ethereum, Zcash, and some of the most exciting projects in the blockchain space.

We have a small focused team. No time tracking, minimum bureaucracy, only results matter. We’ll provide you with anything you need to learn, grow and be more productive.
