Role overview

About the company

Prometheus Research Labs (PRL) is a software development team creating and implementing various DeFi protocols, including liquidity aggregation, price-stabilization wrappers, governance, peer-to-peer lending, and risk stratification.

PRL’s approach to innovation focuses on composability—we believe the most useful smart contracts are building blocks, not walled gardens. They should be open-source and as minimal as possible—we seek to build primitives to be used by the entirety of digital finance, not platforms to extract value from the ecosystem. These protocols can be used and incorporated into any other protocol without restriction.

We are a team of historians, engineers, and designers, united by the belief that DeFi is not yet the future of finance—it is still struggling to reproduce financial products that have been around for hundreds of years. To build the a new financial system, we must first first rebuild old finance in a truly decentralized form.

Thus, our mission is historically inspired—financial innovation has proceeded in episodic bursts on the back of key inventions that rapidly spread in decentralized financial networks. Our vision is for composable, historically-tested primitives to catalyze a transformation in how DeFi works and help give birth to tradeable fixed-income markets, collateralized leverage tokens, and, eventually, a fully decentralized “dollar.”

Role

PRL protocol engineers focus on building smart contract systems on the Ethereum network. They will work within a small team to ideate, design, and implement foundational financial instruments that will power the DeFi ecosystem. Great PRL protocol engineers are self-driven, passionate, and have an affinity for thoroughly designing and thinking through complex systems.

Responsibilities

  • Research and drive high-level decisions about smart contract systems
  • Specify, implement, test, and review smart contract systems in Solidity
  • Work with teammates to thoroughly think through edge-cases and possible attack vectors
  • Stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in Ethereum and DeFi
  • Collaborate with the rest of the organization to deliver quality products
  • Develop backend services in Rust

Job Requirements

  • Experience writing high-quality, well-tested Solidity
  • Knowledge of the EVM, blockchain technology, and cryptoeconomic protocols
  • Experience writing automated integration test suites to ensure that our protocols work properly with each other and with other DeFi protocols
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills
  • Strong sense of ownership
  • Bachelors degree in computer science or related discipline

Note that if you do not have experience with Solidity, but are a quick learner and strong backend engineer (Rust, Python, NodeJS, C++, Go etc) with an interest in DeFi, feel free to apply anyway.

Benefits

  • Competitive Salary
  • Token Incentive Plan
  • Comprehensive Insurance
  • Flexible Hours
  • Fully remote (if desired)
  • Unlimited vacation
  • 1-9
