Interchain is a young, ambitious, and values-led team working on core blockchain technology of the Cosmos ecosystem. Our engineering team leads the development and stewardship of the Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol (IBC). We’re headquartered in Berlin, Germany, but our team is remote-friendly, with some fully remote team members in other areas of western Europe. We keep in touch through Github, Slack, Discord, and Zoom, and meet in person periodically. 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.
We’re looking for skilled engineers to join the IBC team and work on the canonical implementation of the IBC protocol. IBC is an open-source, end-to-end, connection-oriented, stateful protocol that provides reliable, ordered, and authenticated communication between heterogeneous distributed ledgers — in many ways analogous to TCP/IP, an open-source protocol for end-to-end communication between heterogeneous machines. Since its launch in February 2021, the IBC protocol and its Golang implementation already enable inter-blockchain communication among more than 50 blockchains in the Cosmos ecosystem and facilitate almost 7 million token transfers a month. Check out this website for more detailed statistics.
We have big plans for IBC and we want you to help us make them come true. Here are some of the activities that you will be doing:
We want to find motivated people that are open-minded, diligent and kind. You should be comfortable working with remote employees, which means using video calls and frequent written communication. We are mindful of personal or family situations and we thus offer a flexible work schedule and the possibility to work part-time. We’re not especially picky about your previous experience, but we're looking for candidates who ideally have:
