- Strong experience implementing cryptography in production
- Knowledge of homomorphic encryption
- Knowledge of zero-knowledge proofs
Zama’s mission is to safeguard privacy by making the internet encrypted end-to-end. Zama’s products help web2 and web3 developers build private-by-design applications using homomorphic encryption (FHE), without having to learn cryptography.
Zama was founded by Pascal Paillier, a pioneer in FHE, and Rand Hindi, a serial privacy entrepreneur, and has a team of veteran cryptographers, including Nigel Smart, Marc Joye, Ilaria Chillotti and others.
As part of our efforts bringing privacy to web3, we are building a homomorphic blockchain protocol that enables private smart contracts, where computation happens on-chain on encrypted shared states.
We’re looking for an Applied Cryptography Engineer with a strong background in cryptography, capable of designing and implementing complex cryptographic protocols that combines FHE, ZK and other crypto techniques.
You will be working alongside a team of cryptographers, blockchain engineers and full-stack engineers to design, implement and launch Zama’s homomorphic blockchain.
