At PowerLoom, we are building a decentralized protocol that will be considered as a gold standard
for guaranteeing integrity of data that lives on any decentralized protocol and the state of which undergoes transitions continually.
for serving rich data on demand powered by an ecosystem of peers and stakeholders that are incentivized to participate in the protocol.
The protocol generates snapshots of analytics/insights/statistics extracted from any stream of blockchain data backed by cryptographic proofs. We are aggressively pursuing a mainnet release by end of 2023, and for that we are looking for developers with hands-on experience in building and composing decentralized and distributed systems that power data APIs across a spectrum of frontend and backend technologies.
This position allows you to be fully remote and comes with all the benefits and room for creative freedom that one would expect from such a role. We meet once every 8-10 weeks to converge on our direction, touch base and keep the team spirit intact.
Expertise in a narrow subset of specific networking/web/data analytics/ML frameworks or libraries, for example, Django/Flask/Pandas/NumPy/SciKit does not translate well into the capabilities required for this role and such applications will not be considered.
Please do not apply in case you don't have the freedom to join on an immediate basis or have an inconveniently long notice period (>4 weeks) at your present employment
The following links will help you get a complete picture of the work we do and the systems we build. When you apply, do mention in brief in your introduction note on any specific area/component/subsystem of PowerLoom Protocol that you see yourself readily contributing to based on the skill and experience you have gained so far, if you had the opportunity to do so. All applications without a valid introduction note will be rejected.
An ability to learn and apply new concepts in a rapid iterative approach will be taken into account wherever prior experience might not be available or applicable.
Share links to your open source contributions or projects to expedite the selection process. Original projects, hacks, bounty submissions have the potential to get a pass straight to the technical evaluation round without a screening round.
Language proficiency in order of priority (bonus points if you are equally proficient in both or an addition language)
Regardless of web3 specific experience, it is also important to have solid grounding in building systems that scale and self-correct to ultimately provide value to all clients of PowerLoom Protocol.
Ability to architect and map out systems
HTTP request-response cycle profiling, debugging, optimization
Computer Science fundamentals
concurrency and parallelism constructs
strategic use of data structures native to specific caches and storage technologies
Rapid prototyping of API designs, mock API and service consumption, dogfooding
With any engineering role at PowerLoom Protocol, you will be working on bleeding edge stuff at the intersection of diverse techincal as well as non-technical fields like Web3 tools/frameworks/protocols, decentralized/distributed systems, game theory, cryptoeconomics, DeFi(decentralized finance), to name a few. One can be rest assured that pursuing a career with us and joining the core founding team will empower them to reap the oppprtunities coming up in the decentralized software development world in the near to long term future.
These skills are not a strict requirement to qualify for the role yet can add the extra edge required to engineer a protocol like PowerLoom:
If you are passionate about solving complex data storage and fingerprinting puzzles, and have already worked on open source projects and/or production scale code, go ahead and apply. You won't be disappointed.
