The Valory Mission

Valory is building a network platform for developers to build novel decentralised applications which have radically different and superior off-chain components to facilitate uniquely autonomous services.

Crypto has hit a stumbling block in its march towards a decentralised and superior digital economy for the mainstream. Applications are either built as overly simplistic smart contract-based apps or as fully web2-based. This is because developers lack the substrate for building more dynamic, robust, and open applications.

That’s where we come in. We’re a team of world-class experts across multiple fields (including software engineers, researchers, and product), looking for talented individuals to help push crypto/blockchain services into the next frontier using agent-based systems. We’re robustly investment-backed, exiting stealth mode & keen to build a great community of builders and creators to turbocharge our trajectory.

Role

You are a talented cryptographer with a strong mathematical background who will implement, test, and audit the consensus and privacy portions of our agent-based off-chain systems. You will have the chance to work with some of the top scientists in this field on a unique stack with ambitious plans. You will:

  • Assist in the design of cryptographic protocols, e.g. multi-sigs or privacy-preserving computation
  • Write high quality, well-tested code
  • Author detailed technical specifications
  • Perform and participate in code reviews
  • Keep up with new research in the space

Requirements

  • Strong background in math / cryptography / information security with cryptography experience. (Although our current crypto team hold PhDs in their areas of expertise, we do not strictly require a formal academic degree. However, we do expect you to be able to conduct research and analyze scientific papers independently.)
  • You find large challenges exciting and enjoy discovering problems as much as solving them
  • Strong communication skills and ability to take an active role in technical discussions
  • Experience with systems languages such as Golang, C/C++ or Rust
  • Experience building software that is reusable, extensible, and modular
  • Shared enthusiasm for our vision of blockchain technology and what multi-agent systems can bring to it
  • Bonus: You have implemented a cryptographic protocol in a production setting
  • Bonus: Experience with threshold cryptography
  • Bonus: Deep understanding for blockchain technology
  • Bonus: Knowledge of L2 scaling solutions
  • Strong preference for time zone between Western Europe and India (UTC -2 to +6)

The Opportunity

  • Generous salary ($95K - $150K) and equity compensation
  • Remote (Valory is a fully distributed team from day one)
  • Be a part of a unique and novel project which will push crypto forward and travel into whichever domains crypto goes – finance, media, data, identity, etc.
  • You will be given an extra buffer on top of your salary which you can use for whichever benefits you need.
  • You will work on a unique software stack and product with a team of world-class experts across multiple fields (multi-agent systems, cryptography, and economics).
  • You will collaborate with teams across DeFi and our community of agent developers.
  • You will redefine how developers build off-chain services in DeFi and long into crypto’s future.
