About Us

Parity is one of the world's most experienced core blockchain infrastructure companies, having built and pioneered some of the most advanced technologies in the blockchain sector. Parity was founded by Dr. Gavin Wood, co-founder and former CTO of Ethereum, the primary engineer behind the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), inventor of the Solidity programming language, and primary author of the Ethereum Yellowpaper.

Parity has built clients for Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Zcash, and has pioneered a completely new, next-generation blockchain protocol with Polkadot and the framework it’s built with, Substrate. Parity builds the open-source technologies needed to power an unstoppable, decentralised web—known as Web3—and helps developers and organisations implement and build upon the Web3 tech stack.

  • Highly motivated to contribute to Parity’s mission and be part of something bigger
  • Excited to work on projects that are groundbreaking and complex
  • Autonomous workers that self-initiate, but also collaborate well with others

  • Comfortable with chaos and adapting to the ever-changing Web3 space
  • Continuously educating themselves about Parity and the wider ecosystem

About the Team

As a team, we are currently working on the new version of our tool, written in Rust, that allows us to create more complex scenarios and interactions with the running network. We often collaborate with other Parity teams, notably the NodeSDK and Parachains Core teams. While the main focus of this role is on the Rust side of things, you will also be involved in the maintenance of the v1 version in JavaScript/TypeScript and some ability to work with infrastructure technologies (e.g k8s) is highly beneficial to understand the big picture and how all the things are wired together.

  • Working on the design, implementation, testing and release of the new version of Zombienet-sdk.
  • Authoring documentation and learning material related to the new version.
  • Migration of the current workload from TypeScript version to SDK.
  • Contribute to the maintenance of the TypeScript (v1) version of the tool.
  • Help the team to explore and understand new use cases from the developers community.
  • Contribute to the performance and observability enhancements.

About You

  • 3+ years of experience as a Software Engineer.
  • Experience in Rust or interest in learning it.
  • Experience and enthusiasm for working with JavaScript/TypeScript.
  • Ability to come up with technical solutions and application architecture.
  • Hands on experience with Observability
  • Collaborate with others in an open-source culture, open to feedback with a critical mindset

About Working for Us

  • Competitive remuneration packages based on iterative market research, including tokens (where legally possible)
  • “Future of work” environment that’s remote-first and self-initiating with flexible hours
  • Team mates that are genuinely excited about their impact and projects
  • Access to the brightest minds in this space to learn about Web3 and develop your skills and knowledge while on the job
  • Becoming part of the wider ecosystem (career and networking opportunities)
  • Team and company-wide retreats
  • Work laptop
  • Opportunity to relocate to Germany or Portugal (with visa sponsorship)

Those joining our collective as an employee in Germany, Portugal, and the UK, also enjoy benefits such as healthcare, parental leave, PTO (28 days per year) and local team events.

Parity is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We welcome diversity in our global team and care about everyone in our collective feeling included and welcome.
