At Aztec we believe privacy isn’t just a fundamental right, but a creative force for web3. Our goal is to unleash the full potential of decentralized technologies by building an open, privacy-first network with no compromises.
Privacy enables use cases that otherwise would not be possible and accelerates mainstream adoption. The next wave of web3 applications will require programmable privacy. Aztec’s technology empowers developers with the tools to build private applications and bring their ideas to reality.
Our journey started while building an application to bring syndicated loans on chain. We realized that our idea was a nonstarter without privacy. There were no solutions to offer privacy on public blockchains - so we sought out to build it ourselves. Since then, we've made industry-leading advances in cryptography, and deployed a private money platform and a private DeFi platform.
To realize our vision of implementing privacy on a public blockchain, we are building a world-class team of cryptographers, engineers, and ecosystem builders. Supporting us on this journey are leading investors including Paradigm, Variant, Consensys, and a_capital.
At Aztec we’re building a next generation smart contract language called Noir that will enable developers to easily create a new class of private smart contracts. Ultimately this language will be used with our next generation Aztec3 architecture. We’re looking for compiler engineers to work on the frontend and middle-end of the compiler, tasks would include:
Modifying the SSA pass to include new language features
Modifying the frontend passes such as lexing, parsing and type-checking to allow for new features
Experience in a low level language, preferably Rust
Demonstrable experience in building or contributing to a compiler
Fluent in English with excellent communication skills
What we offer:
A highly competitive compensation package (including equity)
Flexible and remote work environment
25 days holiday + bank holidays annually
An opportunity to work at the cutting edge of blockchain and FinTech with a world class cryptography and engineering team
