We are a startup based in Neuchatel and London, building the next generation of privacy infrastructure for the Internet. Our core technology is a decentralised and incentivised mixnet that allows integration with third party applications and services to protect users’ data and ensure their privacy at the network level. The Nym team is a world class mix of privacy experts, coders, and thinkers spread all over Europe. They also happen to be really nice people. We believe that user privacy underpins democratic freedoms in a networked world, and we’re proud to help roll back the surveillance society. Nym is looking for a skilled Senior Systems Developer to grow with us and make key contributions throughout this journey.
Advanced network privacy systems
Cryptographic credential issuance and verifications systems
Integration points for user-facing systems such as wallets and network explorers
WebAssembly components for in-browser use
Smart contracts in Rust
At least 5 years of experience in systems or back-end development.
Previous Rust experience would be a huge bonus. However, we recognize that Rust is a new-ish language, and we are open to helping a Rust-curious coder with a good previous experience to convert.
Go experience also a big plus (we have a few components in Go)
Unit and integration testing skills.
The ability to lead sub-teams in order to get things done. To be clear, this is a coding job, not a management job - but we need someone who can get to grips with problem-solving above the level of pure coding and take some responsibility at a team level while coding every day.
Distributed systems experience
Knowledge of blockchains, consensus etc a bonus but not a necessity.
A diverse and collaborative team of 20 + Privacy and DeFi enthusiasts, interested in learning and solving problems together
Remote working (with a bias towards being able to do in-person meetups periodically)
A competitive salary
