Staff Rust Engineer, Protocol

This opportunity would be with Tools for Humanity

About the Team

Scale is at Worldcoin’s core
The Protocol team is responsible for fulfilling this mission in a decentralized way by imagining, building, and maintaining trustless systems that can scale to billions of people
One of the ways we do this is through a privacy-preserving protocol that powers using state-of-the art cryptography
We are active in the Ethereum ecosystem, and work with the wider community to solve limitations around blockchain scalability
Our team builds Rust services deployed on Kubernetes clusters that generate and verify zero-knowledge proofs and interact with the Ethereum Blockchain and various Layer 2 solutions

About the Opportunity

This is a unique opportunity to lead the development and roadmap of a significant component of our Protocol, which allows for privacy at-scale
This is the first step in our roadmap towards a privacy-preserving digital identity ecosystem

In this role, you will:

  • Work primarily in Rust, with some exposure to smart contracts in Solidity, TypeScript and Go
  • Work on the latest technologies and developments in blockchain and cryptography
  • Contribute to feature development and code reviews
  • Work closely with and learn from experts in domains like AI, cryptography, blockchain all the way to hardware manufacturing
  • Guide and mentor the Protocol team and improve engineering best practices through leading by example
  • Take ownership over deployed services that power our scalability solutions

About You

  • 5+ years of experience developing backend services in Rust
  • An advocate for always delivering high-quality code
  • Prior experience with Ethereum, Layer 2 scalability or zero-knowledge applications are nice-to-haves, but not required
  • A curiosity and passion for Web3, open-source code, privacy and digital identity
  • A bias towards action and willingness to roll up your sleeves to get things done
  • Self-driven – you’re not afraid to take risks and make big bets
