OVERVIEW

A novel blockchain architecture

Elrond introduces a novel blockchain architecture which goes beyond state-of-the-art and is designed for practical scalability via Adaptive State Sharding and Secure Proof of Stake (SPoS). On the one hand our solution offers scalability while preserving security and decentralization; on the other it ensures large scale efficiency and sustainability by eliminating intensive PoW energy and computational waste. Last but not least, we believe interoperability to be instrumental for the future of the blockchain ecosystem, hence we design Elrond to be EVM compliant and cross-chain interoperable.

MISSION

1000x improvements to current blockchain iterations

At Elrond we are focusing on the heart of the scalability problem and attempting to bring a 3 orders of magnitude improvement. We aim for 10k TPS, minimum latency and negligible fees. Why scalability? Well, for any meaningful adoption, scalability simply needs to be solved, real world use cases require far more than the 10-12 TPS we see in current blockchain architectures. Once this is solved, Elrond will open new frontiers for decentralized apps to build on.

OPEN POSITIONS

We’re always on the look-out for ambitious, unstoppable, determined people to join our team.

  • ENGINEERING

We are looking for a full-time Blockchain Software Engineer to develop software for Elrond - a scalable value transfer protocol for the digital economy. Elrond’s main contribution rests on two cornerstone building blocks:

1. A genuine State Sharding approach: effectively partitioning the chain state into multiple shards, handled in parallel by different participating validators;
2. Secure Proof of Stake consensus mechanism: an improved variation of Proof of Stake (PoS) that ensures long term security and distributed fairness, while eliminating the need for energy intensive PoW algorithms.

To perfect our product, you will be joining a team of experts, hands on coders versatile in many programming languages, researchers and top professionals in blockchain technology with solid experience for many years.

The technology we deliver needs to be fast, secure and scalable therefore at this point we work in Go programming language which we believe for now is the best choice. Our flexible approach to technology gives us an opportunity to choose the right tools for the right jobs therefore any extra knowledge or alternatives are more than welcomed.

If this sounds intriguing and it lights up a bulb in your head and heart then we can’t wait to have you on board! After all as Jay-Z likes to say “Difficult takes a day. Impossible takes a week” - we think it might just be more than that – but who cares – we deliver cool stuff that will most probably change the world.

You are the right candidate, if you have:
  • At least 3 years experience in Go programming language or 5-10 years experience in C / C++
  • Microservices Architecture using Go
  • Good knowkedge of APIs
  • Experience in writing REST API using Go
  • The ability to write write clean, well structured code
  • English fluency, both written and spoken
The following would be a big plus:
  • Work experience in a blockchain based company
  • In depth technical knowledge of blockchain concepts such as sharding

Yes we are probably the best team in town with truly exceptional team mates but that’s not all. We’ve got a wide range of benefits and perks that you can enjoy.

Complete benefits:
  • Flexible remote-working policy and flexible work shchedule that adapts to your needs;
  • We provide competitive compensation packages with periodical reviews;
  • We regularly attend relevant conferences and meetups;
  • We provide generous wellness incentives to take care of you throughout the year;
Other perks:
  • The coolest office in Sibiu;
  • Free fruit and refreshments throughout the day;
