  • Being conscious of the costs of¬†architectural¬†decisions and taking these costs into account when jointly making important decisions
  • Managing¬†and improving¬†legacy¬†solutions and integrating with¬†legacy¬†technology when appropriate
  • Acquiring a deep technical understanding of problems and solutions
  • Maintaining a firm and contemporary grasp of¬†computer¬†science and engineering techniques
  • Providing technical guidance to software¬†engineers
  • Creating and maintaining system¬†architecture¬†documentation
  • Doing¬†code¬†reviews
  • Test¬†coverage reviews
  • Attending¬†Ethereum¬†core¬†developer calls
  • Supporting developers with¬†Ethereum-specific¬†guidance
  • Technical task¬†definitions,¬†assignments and¬†documentation
  • Follow up on engineering and¬†coding¬†improvements discussed in sprint retrospectives
  • Monitor compatibility with the¬†Ethereum¬†virtual machine (EVM)¬†standard¬†and¬†Core-Geth.

Requirements

Your expertise

  • A degree in¬†computer¬†science or engineering
  • A minimum of five years in industrial or commercial development
  • A minimum of one year as a technical¬†architect
  • A minimum of two years as¬†leader¬†of a software development¬†team
  • Practical experience with¬†agile¬†software development methods
  • Experience working with Git and Git workflow

  • Experience working with scientists,¬†researchers¬†and formal methods specialists

  • Comfortable with formal processes such as the¬†Ethereum¬†improvement proposals process
  • Comfortable with formal papers and with change in requirements
  • Blockchain¬†experience
  • Knowledge of proof of¬†stake,¬†Ouroboros BFT,¬†Solidity¬†and¬†EVM¬†evolution (hard forks, changes in op¬†codes,¬†DoS attacks)
  • Modeling (eg, high-level flows, and low level or implementation-level specifications)
  • Knowledge of (and experience with) highly¬†distributed¬†systems (such as: failure states, versioning, migration schemes) and knowledge of operations for a system (such as: monitoring, resourcing, scaling, log structuring)
  • Knowledge of networking (APIs, low-level protocols,¬†peer-to-peer)
  • Ability to reason about (and¬†debug)¬†systems in flight (an¬†architecture¬†needs to address a need but also work in reality)
  • Knowledge of¬†distributed¬†state¬†management
  • Knowledge of local¬†database¬†management
  • Understanding of the¬†EVM¬†architecture
  • Knowledge of the¬†cryptographic¬†primitives used in¬†blockchains¬†such as hash¬†algorithms¬†and asymmetric signatures
  • Knowledge of¬†blockchain¬†data¬†structures such as Merkle trees and¬†back-linked¬†lists
