Description

About EigenLabs

EigenLabs is more than just a leading name in the blockchain space. We're the driving force behind EigenLayer, a game-changing restaking platform scaling Ethereum's security to the entire crypto ecosystem, as well as EigenDA, a hyperscale DA platform for Ethereum rollups.

The vision of EigenDA is simple: Imagine a world where blockchain projects break free from the shackles of the scaling trilemma. In today's blockchain ecosystem, each service is typically secured by its own tokenized trust-network. With EigenDA, rollups can build upon the established security of the Ethereum trust network, without sacrificing scalability, security or decentralization.

THE ROLE

As a Blockchain Engineer you will leverage your skills and knowledge of decentralized systems to create technologies that power the world's most innovative crypto projects. Rollups are an incredibly complex software category, and they will be key to how all blockchains scale. Your efforts building integrations onto EigenDA, and generating technical buzz around it, will directly impact the success of the project.

This is an opportunity to work with the biggest projects in crypto, as rollups become the scaling strategy for Ethereum. In this role, you'll also be sent to conferences to participate in panels and give talks, so it's a chance to lend your voice to shape the future of blockchain technology.
If you're looking to collaborate with a talented team of engineers, driving innovation and inventing groundbreaking technologies, we look forward to hearing from you!
