Equilibrium is a leading global developer of decentralised technologies. We design, build, and implement solutions in critical, industry-defining projects for core Web3 infrastructure. Founded in 2018 and headquartered in Finland, Equilibrium is a remote-first, distributed company of ~60 people across ~20 countries including senior engineers, economists, and cryptographers.
We work across three primary commercial activities: Consulting (high value-add engineering services, including end-to-end architectural design and implementation in blockchain and related systems), Venturing (internal studio for diversified, scalable Web3 products and applications through proprietary R&D), and Investing (capital deployment in large-cap liquid tokens and early-stage, illiquid Web3 related companies and technologies). We are a leading adviser to many of the most prominent, Tier I organisations in the industry, including Ethereum Foundation, Web3 Foundation, Zcash Foundation, Protocol Labs, Solana Foundation, Forte, Dapper Labs, and Aleo to name but a few.
Our teams are largely self-organising; they design their own processes and choose their own tools. We understand that each team and each project has different needs. We trust our teams to deliver and let them execute on project deliverables in the way they believe is best.
We are currently looking for a Cryptographic Engineer, who can help us shape the future of decentralized web. Your role will focus on implementing various cryptographic primitives and protocols, both for internal research projects and real-world blockchains.
We are looking for people with background in math/cryptography and having working experience with:
- Low-level system languages e.g. Rust, C++, Go
- Taking research papers to functional code
We are especially looking for people having experience with:
- Blockchain node implementations
- ZK-proof technology
- Compilers and VMs
Salary & benefits:
Salary and benefits will be negotiated separately based on the candidate’s skills and experience. Please note that we hire our international talent residing outside of Finland with contractor status (being a contractor at Equilibrium does not mean short-term projects or no benefits!) Take this into consideration and make sure to include your salary request in the application!
