Our team is developing Mantis, a Scala-based client for the Ethereum Classic (ETC) chain.

Role overview

IO Global, creator of the Cardano blockchain platform, is searching for a Scala Software Engineer to join an exciting project. Our team is developing Mantis, a Scala-based client for the Ethereum Classic (ETC) chain. We are working hard to bring check pointing to the ETC community and on other exciting things you can find on our public product roadmap. Besides the proof of work (PoW) consensus, we are also digging deep into proof of stake (PoS) concepts by building a Mantis client inspired by OBFT, the Byzantine fault tolerant version of the Ouroboros consensus protocol developed for Cardano.

Our code base is open source, because IOG believes in transparency, security and peer review. Some of our implementations are based on academic research, so if you are keen on implementing formal requirements, you will be able to participate in those.

We are looking for the best people to join us, work with us and help us to change the world. If you are a problem-solver who is self-driven with a black belt in getting stuff done, we want to talk to you!

Your mission

As a Software Engineer you are responsible for writing high-quality code for our products. You have the exciting challenge of working with cutting-edge research and technology with a focus on market needs. To support you in this challenge, our products have software architects, product managers, project managers, formal methods specialists, and QA test engineers, with whom you must communicate professionally, effectively, and efficiently.

  • Contributing to the design of¬†algorithms
  • Writing clean, straightforward, efficient¬†code¬†that satisfies acceptance criteria and specifications
  • Commiting often and submitting small pull¬†requests¬†frequently
  • Covering your¬†code¬†with unit, property and integration¬†tests¬†when applicable
  • Reviewing the pull¬†requests¬†of your¬†team¬†mates
  • Fixing¬†bugs¬†in your¬†own¬†code¬†and in¬†legacy¬†code¬†from others
  • Being available for emergency fixing of severe issues on¬†deployed¬†products
  • Integrating software components and¬†third-party libraries
  • Verifying and¬†deploying¬†programs and systems
  • Troubleshooting,¬†debugging¬†and upgrading software
  • Writing¬†documentation¬†for¬†code
  • Writing technical user¬†manuals
  • Developing your knowledge of¬†distributed¬†and¬†concurrent¬†computation
  • Developing your knowledge of the basics of¬†cryptography.
