No matter the nature of a risk factor, whether macro-economic or climactic, our mission is to make important risk factors tradable; by anyone, anywhere, without reliance on financial intermediaries. We are building this new infrastructure in collaboration with incredible trading and blockchain communities.
Clearmatics was founded in 2015, and we have ever since been committed advocates of Open Source development, and active participants in the blockchain and cryptography research communities. We've been an active participant and supporter of decentralized infrastructure initiatives including Enterprise Ethereum Alliance.
We're growing our team and are looking for a Head of Blockchain Infrastructure to join us and become part of our journey.
Our stack is Ethereum-like, so familiarity with -- and passion for -- the space is key.
Some of the areas we tackle include blockchain infrastructure optimized for financial use-cases, protocols for specific applications (such as smart contract-based derivatives, synthetic assets, cryptocurrency stabilization, ...), scalability and privacy through cryptography (zkSNARKs, multiparty computation, private transactions/assets).
You have experience being responsible for the operation high stake infrastructure systems and are familiar with all that this entails, such as hardware and software infrastructure management, security, resource planning, communications with the wider team and working in a highly independent and self-directed fashion. You can thrive in a fast-paced and innovative startup environment, and you are not deterred by unknowns or unfamiliar concepts.
You are currently running validator nodes for a proof-of-stake blockchain, commercially or personally. You understand the implications of protocol changes, e.g. in the context of forks and have been immersed in the blockchain world for some time.
You communicate clearly in writing and in discussions, and you are always on the lookout for ways to improve the performance, profitability, and usefulness of the nodes you are running. You love implementing efficient and highly secure systems, and have a deep rooted appreciation for how implementation details affect the big picture, and vice versa.
NICE TO HAVE
Our mission is to build peer-to-peer infrastructure for a machine-driven future. Founded in 2015, Clearmatics is a remote-first blockchain company with a London base. We build member-owned and governed decentralised network platforms for the p2p exchange of tokenized value between network members. Our ethos and architecture is grounded in protocol, p2p architecture, removing friction and market inefficiencies, strong security guarantees and interoperable exchange across platforms to build a p2p ecosystem for market infrastructure. Our founder and CEO Robert Sams was a pioneer of decentralised stablecoins with his 2014 paper on Seigniorage Shares, as well the concept of ‘smart derivatives’. We are also incredibly privileged to have Vitalik Buterin on our team as an advisor. We have good ties to the Open Source / Ethereum community, and work closely with the Ethereum Foundation as an EEA Member.
