Golem Factory and its Mission

Are you a Rust developer looking to make a significant impact in the world of distributed computing? At Golem Factory, you have the chance to co-create a pioneering peer-to-peer market for distributed computational resources.

We believe your expertise in Rust is vital for the development and innovation of our open-source, decentralized platform, the Golem Network. This platform is a trailblazer in the market, aiming to make computing power more accessible and affordable worldwide. Your role will be crucial to its success. Imagine your contributions supporting a wide range of computational projects, from scientific research to animation renderings or running distributed AI models.

Currently, we’re spearheading an initiative to integrate GPU computing power with Golem, significantly expanding its capabilities, especially in artificial intelligence applications.

As a member of our team, you’ll play a pivotal role in this expansion, helping to develop and optimize our decentralized computing framework.

Joining Golem Factory is more than just starting a new job; it’s entering a community of innovators and leaders in the field of computing. Here, your Rust skills will be essential in shaping the future of the Golem Network and, thereby, the future of distributed computing technology.

The Role:

As a Senior Backend Software Engineer you will join the team of above-average skilled engineers solving complex problems in the decentralized systems area, and contribute to building the core of the Golem platform. The main component - Yagna - is written purely in Rust, and it’s the entry point to Golem, just like geth or erigon are entry points to the Ethereum network.

In this role, you would have space to share and develop your ideas, innovate to improve Yagna and other aspects of the Golem Network platform, such as: runtimes (QEMU-based light VM), networking, scalability, reputation, security, and many other pieces that are at the core of the platform. In many aspects, we tackle unique problems that no one has addressed before, which makes this role challenging, exciting and fulfilling.
