About Protocol Labs
Protocol Labs drives breakthroughs in computing to push humanity forward. Protocol Labs is a product-development lab, but behind the protocols and tools we build, behind the research and implementations, are passionate people, teammates, and community members. Most teams in the Protocol Labs Network are fully distributed and work remotely around the world. Engineers, researchers, and operators work in the open to improve the internet — humanity's most important technology — as we explore new advances at the intersection of many exciting fields (web3, cryptography, networks, distributed systems) and cultures (startups, research, open-source, distributed work).
We seek a Project Lead to operate a team and drive the maintenance and deployment of the foundational Internet Core Service for randomness in collaboration with the League of Entropy
Drand (pronounced “dee-rand”) is an unbiasable randomness beacon that can be used by all sorts of applications as their randomness source. The League of Entropy is a network maintained by multiple partners that use drand to generate unbiasable randomness, a critical service for many applications.
