We are looking for Haskell engineers who are interested in further developing both the Pact language itself – including applications beyond blockchain – as well as the settlement layer, Chainweb. Candidates may choose to focus on either other of these or explore the points of intersection. We are looking for well-rounded candidates, but also those who have specialty areas of interest. Therefore, if any of these categories describes you, there is very likely a specialized role we have available.
Please note that this job posting is evergreen, and applications will be reviewed only as positions become available. We appreciate your interest in Kadena and will reach out to applicants only when openings arise.
We don’t believe in hard and fast hiring criteria because great candidates can come from all backgrounds, but here are some attributes that we frequently find useful for the kinds of engineering problems that we work on:
