Taiko Labs is building the Taiko ZK-EVM: a layer-2 blockchain that scales Ethereum in a manner that emulates Ethereum as closely as possible - both technically and non-technically. Taiko ZK-EVM is an Ethereum-equivalent ZK-Rollup, scaling Ethereum by supporting all EVM opcodes in a layer-2 architecture that is decentralized, permissionless, and secure.

We are strong believers in zero-knowledge proofs. Our team consists of people that have been using ZKPs since 2018 and have built the first ZK-Rollup on Ethereum. We are looking to expand our team with more talented and determined individuals that share our goals.

We are looking for a Senior Blockchain Engineer to join the client team developing the nodes that will run our ZK-EVM. The Taiko L2 client is based on a fork of Geth and relies heavily on learnings from Ethereum clients. The ideal candidate has expert experience with Golang, is familiar with blockchain infrastructure, and can write high-quality, high-performance, clean code.

About the role

  • Write code for the Taiko L2 client in Golang
  • Maintain Ethereum equivalence by keeping abreast of Geth development
  • Security testing and optimization of the L2 client
  • Working collaboratively with the ZK-EVM team

About you

  • 4+ years of development experience in Golang or similar language. Golang strongly preferred
  • Experience with Ethereum and Geth
  • Experience with performance optimization and high-load projects
  • Understanding of zero-knowledge proofs and other cryptographic concepts is preferred
  • Security-minded and always learning
  • A deep sense of ownership in your work, capable of seeing a complex project through from start to finish
