Equilibrium Labs designs & builds core infrastructure for the decentralized web. We are an R&D company focused on hard engineering problems around security, privacy, and scaling of blockchain-based cloud infrastructure. While we love to experiment and launch products & technologies of our own, we also partner with leading builders such as Aleo, Starknet, Solana, and Avail to help accelerate their development.
Our teams are self-organizing; they design their processes and choose their tools. We understand that each team and each project has different needs. We trust our teams to deliver and let them execute project deliverables the way they believe is best.
Equilibrium Labs is a part of Equilibrium Group, the mothership for Labs, and three other companies specializing in decentralized technologies.
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.

- Taking research papers to functional code
We are especially looking for people having experience with:
- Blockchain node implementations
- ZK-proof technology
- Compilers and VMs
