Research Engineer

Would you like to help design a science-based blockchain that is perpetually cutting edge? Do you thrive working with a research team to help investigate, prototype and validate new ideas for our blockchain?

Our in-house science team is researching all aspects of blockchain technology to ensure that our solutions are sound and secure, and we are now looking for a person who can be a part of the team and help with the investigations. The job involves implementing prototypes, reading scientific papers, and analysing the strengths and weaknesses of different solutions. The purpose of the prototypes is to gain further insight in the feasibility and applicability of proposed features including security, performance and robustness.

We expect you to have a background as a software developer with a master’s degree in engineering or computer science. The ideal candidate:

● Will be able to develop prototypes and proofs of concept.

● Has strong interest in blockchain

● Is able to understand state-of-the-art blockchain research papers

● Likes to experiment with new features at an early state in their development

● Is interested in defining and investigating new features

It would be a plus, but not a requirement, if you have experience in Rust and in publishing scientific papers.

As part of our in-house science team, you will also work closely with the tech team at Concordium to develop and test new features and as internal consultancy to the tech team and product development.

We are primarily looking to hire in Zurich, Switzerland, and Aarhus, Denmark. Remote working is also possible.

About Concordium

Concordium is a Public and Sustainable Proof-of-Stake blockchain with a unique Identity layer at the protocol level. Concordium differs from other participants by offering low transaction costs in fiat and regulator readiness by introducing built-in identity management at the protocol level and zero-knowledge proofs, which are used to replace anonymity with perfect identifiable privacy.

Concordium is developed by professionals with global multi-sector experience and in collaboration with the Concordium Blockchain Research Center Aarhus (COBRA) at Aarhus University and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). The network will ultimately eventually be fully decentralized, the code open source and further development orchestrated through an advanced governance mechanism.
