Nillion is a web3 infrastructure project based on a novel cryptographic innovation called Nil Message Compute (see presentation at Cambridge University). This new technology enables Information-Theoretic Secure decentralized data storage and computation.


As reported by TechCrunch, Nillion raised $25 million at a $180 million valuation in the midst of the bear market of 2022 - the highest valuation for a Seed Round reported in Q4-2022. The project has attracted some of the top talent in tech, including the Founding Engineer of Uber (Conrad Whelan), Founder of Indiegogo (Slava Rubin), Associate General Counsel of Coinbase (Lindsay Danas Cohen), Co-Founder of Hedera Hashgraph (Andrew Masanto) and several other high profile team members. The project has also won several industry awards, including the CoinList Seed Program (see CoinList Tweet here) and Polygon Co-Founder’s Web3 Accelerator Program, Beacon.

Nillion is bringing to life fast, permissionless, decentralized secure storage and private computation that fundamentally improves the way that data is processed, analyzed and shared. The protocol is looking for talented engineers to join its team in building that vision.


As a Senior Security Engineer at Nillion you will architect, design, build, test and deploy software and architecture related to the Nillion NMC Network. This may include building our MFA, NMC Signing & Authentication Services, and much more. This role will be research-focused engineering as we are bringing to life a new security, storage and computation model for private data and we will be bringing it all together with the nilToken, meaning expertise across all areas of computer science will be needed to make it happen.

We are a remote-first organization looking to build an engineering team primarily focused on European and US East Coast time zones. Some travel may be required.
