Lead the core engineering team building the Anoma protocol

Role overview

About Heliax

The primary project of Heliax is the Anoma protocol (implemented in Rust). Anoma is a sovereign, proof-of-stake blockchain protocol that enables private, asset-agnostic cash and private bartering among any number of parties. In addition to Anoma, Heliax works on open-source projects which are part of the Anoma ecosystem, including but not limited to research in cryptographic libraries such as the MASP or Ferveo (written in Rust), and tools for high assurance validity predicates and arbitrary zero-knowledge circuits (Juvix, written in Haskell).


Heliax is a remote-first team, currently composed of cross-disciplinary members located around the world. All of our work is open-source. Our work culture is characterized by open-allocation, where team members have a high degree of freedom and autonomy in choosing when to work, what to work on, and whom to work with.


Overview

Core engineering at Heliax focuses on building, extending, and maintaining decentralized, permissionless, and censorship-resistant protocols in Rust. We are looking for an experienced technical engineering manager interested in leading a team to create high-quality open-source technology and solve outstanding problems in the blockchain space. 


As a technical engineering manager, your team will be working on distributed ledger technology implemented in Rust, all the way up and down the stack from the P2P layer to consensus algorithms, smart contract systems, proof-of-stake incentive mechanisms, interoperability protocols, and gossip networks. 


Responsibilities

  • Collaborating on sustainable open-source stewardship for the Anoma Github repository, creating contribution guidelines, reviewing public code submissions, answering community questions, and coordinating open-source collaborators along with the internal team
  • Managing engineering efforts to implement new features such as proof-of-stake and interblockchain communication, address potential performance bottlenecks, and improve internal software quality
  • Working closely with other teams in Heliax, including cryptography and distributed systems, to integrate their research into the ledger, intent gossip node, and matchmaker
  • Keeping an ever-vigilant eye on security considerations, ensuring that contributions (both internal and external) receive adequate review, and coordinating with ecosystem stakeholders to handle security incidents when they occur
  • Supporting individual engineers in their work and professional development, through knowledge sharing, regular one-on-ones, and feedback sessions

Main Project


Qualifications

  • Experience managing engineering teams, especially ones working on a cutting-edge, complex, real-world software product with security-critical safety considerations
  • Expertise in systems design and an appropriate taste for simplicity, both in internal abstraction structure and in choice of third-party dependencies
  • Top-notch communications skills, clear written prose, and talent for working with a diverse range of contributors and users and synthesizing different perspectives
  • Experience in open-source development, stewardship, and/or maintenance, especially for a piece of software with substantial community involvement and a diverse contributor base
  • A working familiarity with the Rust programming language
  • A high degree of personal responsibility and ownership: you’ll be responsible for setting deadlines and holding yourself and your team accountable to them

Bonus Qualifications

  • Prior experience with distributed systems
  • Prior experience with network and systems engineering
  • Prior experience with database design and optimization
  • Prior experience in blockchain technology
  • Prior experience implementing cryptography

Misc

Remote or local (Zürich/Zug, Berlin). When remote, preferred if mostly located within (+/- 7 hours) Central European time zones. Ideally someone who enjoys nature and hiking 🏔️.
