We're looking for an experienced engineer to help us design the Polygon Zero protocol and implement our reference client. This involves peer discovery, push and pull based gossip, consensus, storage, and so forth. If any of this sounds interesting, please reach out!
While our protocol is similar to Ethereum's in many respects, one difference is that it uses proof-of-stake, with BFT consensus for fast finality. Another is that we have redesigned the VM in a way that is tailored to zero-knowledge proofs. Finally, of course, our protocol contains a proof "overlay" to demonstrate that all transactions are valid.
While these are not hard requirements, we're looking for background in some of the following areas:
- Engineering, ideally with experience in Rust
- Blockchain protocols
- Databases, particularly embedded ones
- Consensus algorithms
Please send a brief intro and your CV to [email protected].
