Parity Technologies builds core infrastructure for blockchains and Web 3.0 technologies. This means dealing with P2P networking, consensus algorithms, cryptography, databases, and decentralized applications. We strive to write the fastest, lightest, and safest core technology in Blockchain and write lots of open-source code.
Parity works in a very flat hierarchy with lots of autonomy and high levels of personal responsibility, and we try to mimic an open-source workflow in much of what we do. We have an article on our blog about our development practices which you may want to read.
This position can be remote or based near one of our offices in Berlin, Lisbon, or London. It’s up to you to decide where you work best.
About the position:
For this role you will be working mostly on off-chain protocols that power Parachains, Polkadot’s mechanism for heterogeneous sharding. Expect to be dealing with P2P networking and general implementation of the lower level (node side) details of a blockchain. In leaving classic server/client architectures behind, there are lots of interesting problems waiting for a solution. There is plenty of room for innovation, creating a performant, scalable and resilient p2p network out of untrusted and selfish nodes.
Some items on our roadmap: asynchronous backing of parachain blocks, parathreads (light weight parachains), offchain message passing between parachains and help bring a novel, very performant block production mechanism to its full potential.
Some of the existing code base can give you an idea of what to expect, and some of the documentation of the overall architecture for parachains can be found here.
You will be working with Robert Klotzner (Team Lead) and Rob Habermeier (Polkadot Co-Founder).
Nice to have:
For this role you can expect to mostly work on the node side of the code, which is implementing and improving off-chain protocols that make parachains work. Deep knowledge in one of the following areas is especially appreciated.
