RDX Works

Company Website: https://www.rdxworks.com/
Remote Locations: Worldwide
Job Type: Full Time

Job Overview:

As a distributed systems engineer at RDX Works, you get to do all the fun stuff. No turning reams of procedural business logic into code for you! Your days will be filled with hard, interesting problems – thinking through all the ways things can go wrong and coming up with solutions which are both elegant and practical – and then turning these into code. You will be tackling synchronization, consensus and networking problems that often have no perfect answer. You will meddle with dark powers best left untouched, learn more about decentralized systems than you dreamed was possible, and work with an inspiring team of incredible people. You will make your mother proud, even if you’re never quite able to properly explain to her what it is you built!

You will first come up to speed by aiding in the delivery of some new improvements to our distributed public ledger. Building upon this knowledge, you will venture into new territory, solving the challenges ahead to bring programmability to the Radix public network in our next major release. From this point forward you will be making new ground right at the cutting edge of a rapidly evolving branch of computer science, as we embark on a journey towards a novel, massively sharded release which will enable unlimited scale.

What are we looking for?

  • You are a prolific, confident coder, and are persistent in working problems to resolution.
  • You possess strong attention to detail, and are rarely surprised by unconsidered edge cases.
  • You’ve used generic types so much that the angle bracket keys on your keyboard are beginning to wear away
  • You are unafraid of working in a space where there is little prior art to refer to
  • You have done and like to do demonstrably hard things
  • You enjoy talking through tough problems with smart people, and are happy to accept ideas and approaches that you didn’t personally come up with

Job Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or equivalent
  • 5+ years working as a professional software developer
  • Fluent in Java or Rust (Java and Rust is what you’ll be using here)
  • Completely comfortable with asynchronous programming models

Some of the following experience will help you stand out:

  • Noddingly familiar with the practical aspects of asymmetric cryptography and zero-knowledge proofs, and having an understanding of the underlying theoretical foundations
  • First-hand experience working with large data sets and dealing with complex distributed systems, and are all too familiar with the attendant complications and gremlins that emerge once not-perfectly-reliable things start talking to each other over a not-perfectly-reliable network
  • Experience with or knowledge of authenticated data structures
  • Hands on experience with big data tools such as Hadoop, Cassandra etc
  • Experience with blockchain/DLT development
  • Have a background in computer science or a scientific qualification with demonstrable experience in consensus
  • Experience implementing a BFT-style consensus protocol
