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.

The role

Creating the Status’ L2 App Chain will involve coordinating work with multiple internal Status and Logos teams, as well as forming partnerships and coordinating work with many external 3rd party orgs. You will be responsible for delivery timelines and budget.

To launch this new L2 blockchain in a reasonable timeframe, Status will be forming a deep partnership with an existing L2 rollup project.  Status’s Nimbus team will adapt and contribute Nimbus products for use in context of this L2 rollup stack as part of this partnership.  DevOps will be handled by Status’s Infra team. Partnerships to support this new L2 blockchain will need to be formed with bridges, RPC endpoint providers, blockchain explorers, fiat to crypto gateways, etc.. to name some 3rd party infrastructure that will need to be in place prior to launch.

The successful candidate will have good business and project management acumen, and will be comfortable and at home discussing all the aspects of Ethereum compatible L2 blockchains with everybody from core client developers to 3rd party infrastructure providers to the marketing team and Status’ community.

This is a rare opportunity to own and lead the creation, launch and subsequent growth of a new L2 rollup blockchain.  If this sounds exciting to you, is something you would love to do then please get in touch!
