Brave - Remote
5 months ago
Brave is on a mission to fix the web by giving users a safer, faster and better browsing experience – while growing support for content creators through a new attention-based ecosystem of rewards.
Much more than a browser, Brave is a new way of thinking about how the web works.
The Blockchain Engineer will be responsible for the architecture and implementation of blockchain-based technologies for the BAT roadmap. The primary task is the development of an open decentralized blockchain-based ads ecosystem, involving user contributions, attention rewards, and publisher contributions over several phases. The first phase will include transition of our existing Bitcoin based proof-of-concept, so familiarity with Bitcoin is a plus.
The ideal candidate will have previously worked with distributed applications, have extensive familiarity with Ethereum and related blockchain technologies including smart contracts (especially ERC-20 tokens), sidechains, and state channels. They must be well versed in the current best practices surrounding smart contract development and be able to rigorously test and verify contract code.
This position reports to the BAT Cloud Manager and will work in collaboration with ad-tech, cloud, privacy and security engineers.
