Interchain GmbH is a 20-person company which works on core blockchain technology. We’re headquartered in Berlin, Germany, but our team stretches from New York, NY to Ulyanovsk, Russia. We keep in touch through Github, Slack, and Zoom, and meet in person periodically (when COVID permits). All in all, the software we develop secures billions of dollars in value across many different systems, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We strive to build world-class software while having plenty of laughs along the way.
So far, our engineering team has led development and stewardship of the Tendermint Core consensus engine and the Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol (IBC), but now we’re also taking on feature development and maintenance for the Gaia blockchain node, the flagship client for the Cosmos Hub. The Cosmos Hub is one of the leading proof-of-stake blockchains and has been live in production for over a year — you can check out the code or take a look at a block explorer to learn more. We’re looking for skilled engineers to take the Cosmos Hub to the next level of performance and functionality.
As a software engineer on Gaia, you’ll be responsible for building, maintaining, and updating the Golang implementation of the Cosmos Hub. Activities include:
