Job Description

At Horizon, we’re building a New Dimension where Internet economies are fun, accessible, and for the benefit of all participants.

We have two amazing products to make this real:

Sequence, which consists of i) the first user-friendly smart wallet for crypto, NFTs, Web3 + the metaverse, and ii) a developer platform to make building Web3 applications easy on Ethereum and other EVM chains.

And Skyweaver, a digital trading card game—powered by Sequence—where players can win, own, trade and sell their NFT game items.

Sequence is poised to drive Web3 adoption on a massive scale by making blockchain easy, fun and powerful for users and developers. And, Skyweaver is a groundbreaking video game with an unprecedented player-owned economy, novel gameplay, and an already fervent community.

While the challenge is hard, we find it incredibly fun. And, we have the ingredients to make it happen: a well-capitalized company with some of the best investors in the world (Reddit co-founder, Coinbase, Initialized, and more), an amazing team of leaders in the blockchain space, engineers who have built widely popular open source, a former top McKinsey strategy consultant, gaming industry veterans, and founders who have built and sold successful companies. You'll get to work with and learn from them all. Learn more at https://horizon.io/

As a senior engineer, you have a deep understanding of designing robust, well-designed code with thoughtful architecture. You can drive and self-direct major areas of our stack. While not a strict requirement, you are comfortable working with and guiding more intermediate and junior engineers when needed.

Given our size, self-driven, and open-minded engineers will thrive best in this role. While small, you'll be working alongside some of the best engineers, and open-source contributors—and a company dedicated to your success. You will learn a lot.

Responsibilities:

-Architect, develop, and implement the infrastructure, and infrastructure stack of Skyweaver and Sequence -Design and implement services that are scalable, and fault-tolerant -Build services that interface with the Ethereum blockchain -Contribute to open source works in the Sequence stack -Extend and evolve our toolchain, to run our stack effectively -Design architectural foundations that are robust and sound, so that future engineers can build on your work with ease and speed

Job Description

Clearmatics is a protocol engineering company. We are building a new financial market architecture that is more open, fair, and resilient than the legacy systems that are in use today. We develop protocols and software that create new markets for risk and more efficient infrastructure for trading, backed by a robust and scalable blockchain network, and secured with modern cryptographic techniques and economic mechanism design.

Clearmatics is based in London but operates on a 'remote first' model. We welcome candidates from all over the world. We have close ties to the Open Source and Ethereum communities, with Vitalik Buterin as an adviser.

The Engineering team at Clearmatics is responsible for developing our blockchain software at Layer 1 and Layer 2. At the core of our stack is the Autonity client, the node software that powers our blockchain network. It is based on Ethereum (go-ethereum) and is secured by Tendermint Proof-of-Stake consensus. Our decentralised platforms are built on smart contracts and decentralised applications, and are supported by backend services in Go.

We're looking to hire a Core Developer to expand our Layer 1 Engineering team.

ABOUT YOU

You're a systems programmer with good knowledge of Layer 1 protocols, and a passion for blockchain and decentralisation. You enjoy working to a high standard and writing code that is clean, performant, and maintainable. You appreciate the importance of careful design choices and can anticipate the impact of code changes on wider system behaviour. You can demonstrate a strong interest in blockchain and may even have open source contributions that you can highlight. You express yourself clearly in writing and in discussions.

RESPONSIBILITIES

You will be involved at all stages of the development lifecycle for the Autonity protocol and its blockchain node client (a fork of go-ethereum). These include: - Implementing new protocol features in Go and Solidity - Developing new distributed systems tests and frameworks - Contributing to protocol and design specifications - Working with members of the community to resolve issues - Your work will ensure that Autonity client is correct, reliable, performant, and secure. This will enable Autonity to serve as the foundational layer for a new ecosystem of decentralised markets.

REQUIREMENTS

  • At least a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related field
  • Strong programming skills in a low-level language like Go, Rust, or C++ (ideally 2+ years with Go)
  • Experience with network, concurrent, and distributed programming/debugging on Linux systems
  • Good knowledge of Ethereum protocols, BFT and dPoS consensus, P2P messaging, and crypto primitives

BONUS POINTS

  • Experience developing on a blockchain node client (preferably Ethereum-like)
  • Knowledge of distributed systems theory obtained from coursework or self-study
  • Smart contract programming experience using Solidity and Web3 APIs
  • Our compensation is blockchain competitive and dependent on your skills & experience.
