Distributed Systems Engineer – Blockchain

Blacksburg | Software Development

EOS.IO, a blockchain software, is the latest project launched by a group of serial tech entrepreneurs and established professionals who believe blockchain technology is a positive disruptive force that will usher in a new era of decentralization, transparency, accountability and security.

Blockchains enable radical levels of transparency and accountability by weaving concepts like byzantine fault tolerant distributed consensus into every facet of decentralized applications.  This means wrapping the mysteries of distributed systems into accessible developer-friendly components at scale. Impossible? We don’t think so but, that's where you come in.

We are looking for passionate distributed systems engineer to join our core blockchain technology team.  As a member of this team, you will help push the boundary blockchains. You will be critical in the innovation, design, and development that achieves a decentralized future powered by EOS.IO.

Responsibilities

  • Design, build, and maintain efficient, reusable, and reliable C++ code.
  • Develop blockchain solutions that power decentralized applications.
  • Research and Educate peers on topics relating to distributed consensus at scale.
  • Help maintain code quality, organization, and automatization.
  • Do it all in open source.
     

Qualifications

  • Experience with Java, Go, Rust, or C++. Strong proficiency in C++ preferred, with solid knowledge of language specification. Experience with C++ 11 or 14 required, particularly mastery of STL, Boost and Lambdas.
  • BA/MS degree in Computer Science or related degree.
  • Familiarity with blockchain a plus, but not required.
  • Able to work independently with minimal guidance.

We are looking for extraordinary technology professionals to join the Block.one LLC team in our continuing quest to enhance, refine and scale EOSIO for our rapidly expanding developer community.

About EOSIO

Published by Block.one, EOSIO is a blockchain protocol that enables horizontal scaling of decentralized applications, allowing developers to efficiently create high performance distributed applications. The EOSIO software provides accounts, authentication, databases, and the scheduling of applications across multiple CPU cores and/or clusters. This allows for horizontal scalability, replaces user fees with an ownership model, and powers simple deployment of decentralized applications.
