Elixir Engineer - Equilibrum [Remote]

Elixir Engineer
Backend Developer - Remote

Equilibrium is a venture studio and services company that develops Web3 infrastructure. We believe that our collective financial and social infrastructure should be open-source, peer-to-peer, and private by default.

We currently employ over 30 engineers, economists, and cryptographers across the globe and work with some of the most ambitious organisations in the business, including Ethereum Foundation, Web3 Foundation, Zcash Foundation, Protocol Labs, Forte, Dapper, and Aleo to name but a few.

We are looking for an Elixir Engineer to join our team to build complex and mission-critical systems. You would be working with our distributed team of engineers on new products, core protocols, or client projects. The position is remote-first, but we hope to get some face time in the form of company retreats if such things are ever possible post-pandemic. Most of the work we do is or will eventually be open source.
