Software Engineer - Distributed Systems [135’000 - 145’000 CHF]

IT & Technology

Salary 135’000 - 145’000 CHF per year
Requirements:- Some of the things that may be helpful preparation for a role at DFINITY include:

> Experience shipping significant software systems or tooling as part of a medium to large organization. 

> A deep understanding of at least one systems software language like C, C++, or Rust.  Our distributed systems components are first being built in Rust (We will help you learn)

> Experience deploying and operating systems that run 24x7x365 and building the monitoring, alarming, and tooling required to keep them healthy.  Running as a decentralized system means re-inventing the way we do “operations” but the things you have learned to date will still be helpful.

> A Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related field.  The unique challenges at DFINITY have attracted many engineers with advanced degrees, however your practical experience is more important to us than your educational background.

Responsibilities:- Distributed Systems Engineers at DFINITY work on many fascinating problems, including:

> Our core consensus algorithm

> Secure distributed message routing

> Payment, Voting, System vernance, and Versioning

We k and respect that great software engineers come from a great variety of backgrounds.  Where you come from is of interest to us, but what we care most about is what you can do.

More: The Internet Computer is the fastest and only infinitely scalable general-purpose blockchain — incubated and launched by the DFINITY Foundation in May 2021. A team of over 200 world-rened cryptographers, distributed systems engineers, and programming language experts have taken on the massive technological challenge of building, maintaining, and continuously improving a ‘world computer’ powerful enough to host Web3 dapps, DeFi, games, NFTs, social media, and metaverse projects.

DFINITY was founded in 2016 by entrepreneur and crypto theoretician, Dominic Williams, and attracted interest and financial contributions from early members of the Ethereum community. Later, top-tier institutions such as Andreessen Horowitz, Polychain Capital, and SV Angel backed the Internet Computer in a collective effort to help build out Web3.

Can you explain the different ways to implement Paxos? Speak Byzantine Fault Tolerance? Explain challenges of decentralized decision making, exponential backoff, and time-bombs, poison-pills, and fuzzing? DFINITY is implementing some of the most sophisticated, secure and efficient consensus algorithms, and distributed messaging protocols ever to be deployed.
