Role overview

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 (crypto, networks, distributed systems) and cultures (startups, research, open-source, distributed work).

Engineering at Protocol Labs is not just about writing world-class code. We create software systems that tackle significant challenges. In re-decentralizing the web, we work on hundreds of open source projects pursuing everything from research to end-user products. We engage both with the technical pieces that make up our systems, and the users and communities that make them run. All of this happens in an environment defined by curiosity, passion, and a love for open source.

This role is focused on the Filecoin Project (filecoin.io), an IPFS-based decentralized network for data storage, with built-in economic incentives and cryptographic proofs to ensure data is stored reliably over time. 

As a Software Engineer, Data Systems, you will...

  • Work directly with large-scale Filecoin users to design, measure, and optimize their decentralized data systems.
  • Use this hands-on knowledge to contribute improvements to Filecoin’s core protocol and implementations.
  • Build great software, tooling, and systems that other companies and individuals will use to achieve their goals.
  • Deeply understand the challenges in the Web3 ecosystem as they relate to Filecoin and IPFS.

What we’re looking for...

  • A proactive and autonomous builder who can solve problems within complex systems and execute with code. You enjoy diving deep into technical elements of your projects, and bring a strong sense of pragmatism and end-to-end problem solving to your work.
  • Ideally, you have worked on at least one project with users that involved large amounts of data storage and network traffic.
  • You have some interest in IPFS and Filecoin. If you do not have any interest, you should be genuinely curious about what those technologies are and hope to develop an interest. We will ask what content addressing is!
  • You’re familiar with open source work and the Go programming language, or you are someone who is willing to pick the language up and you have the foundation to do so.
  • You have a keen awareness of teamwork and patterns of successful cross-functional collaboration.
  • You have a B.Sc. in Computer Science or similar experience. A degree is not required but a lot of what we do requires a computer science foundation.

Bonus Points...

  • Experience leading open source projects, and/or guiding their communities
  • Experience at the intersections of software engineering with related disciplines (especially storage, filesystems, partner engineering, solutions architecture, infrastructure, or reliability engineering)
  • Experience with decentralized building blocks such as content addressing, smart contracts, blockchains, p2p networking, etc.

What’s it like to work at Protocol Labs?

Protocol Labs' mission is to improve humanity’s most important technology, the Internet. We build protocols, systems, and tools to improve how it works. Today, we are focused on how we store, locate, and move information. Our projects include IPFS, Filecoin, libp2p, and more.

As a distributed team, we hire anywhere in the world, and at various levels of experience (entry, senior, staff). We look for people with unique perspectives and diverse backgrounds.

We have a great benefits package, including parental leave, contributions to your retirement, competitive pay, and unlimited time off. For U.S.-based employees, we also provide platinum-level health, dental, and vision coverage for you and your family.

If you’re passionate about the future of computing and a more democratized internet, we want to talk to you.
