About Our Client

Our client is a new cryptocurrency that takes no shortcuts on privacy and usability. Privacy isnโ€™t just important, itโ€™s essential to cryptoโ€™s success. Their vision is to become a shielded layer for many more assets, even ones on different chains, and provide a platform for true digital cash.

A core belief at our client is that privacy and ease-of-use are not in opposition. Users and developers deserve both. Their codebase is TypeScript + Rust, so the world's 1M+ JavaScript developers can contribute. The current implementation is even compatible to run a full our client node directly in the browser in future iterations.


They are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to work on the core protocol and supporting tools. You will work collaboratively with their team members on developing new protocol features and focus on optimization, scale, and performance of a purely decentralized peer to peer (p2p) system.


The team is made up of curious, passionate, kind individuals who deeply care about making a product that's a pleasure to use. If that sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you :)
