About Status

Status is building the tools and infrastructure for the advancement of a secure, private, and open web3. 

With the high level goals of preserving the right to privacy, mitigating the risk of censorship, and promoting economic trade in a transparent, open manner, Status is building a community where anyone is welcome to join and contribute.

As an organization, Status seeks to push the web3 ecosystem forward through research, creation of developer tools, and support of the open source community. 

As a product, Status is an open source, Ethereum-based app that gives users the power to chat, transact, and access a revolutionary world of DApps on the decentralized web. But Status is also building foundational infrastructure for the whole Ethereum ecosystem, including the Nimbus ETH 1.0 and 2.0 clients, the Keycard hardware wallet, and the Waku messaging protocol (a continuation of Whisper).

As a team, Status has been completely distributed since inception.  Our team is currently 150+ core contributors strong, and welcomes a growing number of community members from all walks of life, scattered all around the globe. 

We care deeply about open source, and our organizational structure has minimal hierarchy and no fixed work hours. We believe in working with a high degree of autonomy while supporting the organization's priorities.

About Logos

A group of Status Contributors is also involved in a new community lead project, called Logos, and this particular role will enable you to also focus on this project. Logos is a grassroots movement to provide trust-minimized, corruption-resistant governing services and social institutions to underserved citizens. 

Logos’ infrastructure will provide a base for the provisioning of the next generation of governing services and social institutions - paving the way to economic opportunities for those who need them most, whilst respecting basic human rights through the network’s design. You can read more about Logos here: in this small handbook for mindful readers like yourself.

Who are we?

We are the Blockchain Infrastructure Team, and we are building the foundation used by other projects at the Status Network. We are researching consensus algorithms, Multi-Party Computation techniques, ZKPs and other cutting-edge technologies with the aim to take the blockchain to the next level of security, decentralization and scalability, with a special focus on privacy as a fundamental right. We are currently in a research phase, working with models and simulations. In the near future, we will start implementing the research. You will have the opportunity to participate in developing -and improving- the state of the art of blockchain technologies, as well as turning it into a reality.

Key Responsibilities

  • Work with Rust, architecting and developing software components in the areas of p2p networking, consensus algorithms, and related components.
  • Contribute to the design and implementation of the architecture for a production-grade node that will run in a highly adversarial environment.
  • A strong candidate will be able to contribute from the first month. The first task will serve to gain familiarity with the code before taking responsibility for more complex components.

Ideally, you will have

  • Extensive experience with low-level or network programming languages (C/C++, Rust, Go, Erlang) and enough interest in Rust to make the leap. We value the understanding and experience of systems in production more than the specific programming language.
  • Strong distributed systems experience, or strong network software experience. We will consider candidates with experience in distributed databases, high-performance middleware and similar, not necessarily in the blockchain industry.
  • Strong competency in developing and maintaining complex libraries or applications, writing clean code and proper documentation.
  • Experience working with software in production: debugging, instrumentation, and optimization in deployed software and production environments.
  • A strong alignment to our principles: https://status.im/about/#our-principles

Bonus points if

  • Experience with libp2p or devp2p
  • Experience in blockchain technology.
  • Comfortable working remotely and asynchronously
  • Experience working for an open-source organization.  

[Don’t worry if you don’t meet all of these criteria, we’d still love to hear from you anyway if you think you’d be a great fit for this role!]

Hiring Process 

The hiring process for this role will be:

  1. Interview with our People Ops team
  2. Interview with Team Member 
  3. Interview with Engineering Lead
  4. Interview with Logos Program Owner


The expected compensation range for this role is $160,000 - $190,000 (negotiable, dependent on how we assess your skills and experience throughout our interview process). We are happy to pay in any mix of fiat/crypto.
