Aptos is looking to hire a Research Scientist to join the team. This is a full-time position that is 100% remote.

Aptos is a people-first blockchain on a mission to help billions of people achieve universal and fair access to decentralized assets in a safe and scalable way.

Founded by some of the original creators and maintainers that researched, designed, and built the Diem blockchain to serve this purpose, we have dedicated several years toward this mission. We believe the open-source Diem technology we have developed is an important foundation of a safe and scalable web3 world where everyone has more equitable opportunities to grow and access financial assets with lower fees and fewer intermediaries.

Aptos (Ohlone for "The People") encompasses our mission and ethos for why we build.

About The Role

As part of the Blockchain Research team, you will be working closely with the engineering team to bridge between state-of-the-art research and cutting edge technology. The scope, as it currently stands, is open-ended, but some projects will likely be from the following areas: networking, consensus, incentives, authenticated storage, zero-knowledge proof systems, anonymous payments, smart-contracts, scalability and performance. The vision is to initiate and drive projects that are motivated by advancing Aptos and blockchain technology in general and publish worthwhile results in top tier conferences, as opposed to working on publishable results and then trying to find applications to blockchains.

If you are an expert on one of the following, Let’s talk!

  • Distributed Systems
  • Cryptography
  • Programming Languages
  • Game Theory
  • Databases
  • Security and Privacy

What we’re looking for:

  • PhDs at all levels with a passion to see their research in production
  • Full stack Researchers with a “find a way or make one” mindset and ability to lead a research project to top tier publications as well as integration to production
  • Great communication skills

Our Benefits

While our HQ is currently in Palo Alto, California, we support a 100% remote work culture and we are hiring across the world. We raised our first round of funding from some of the top firms led by a16z and Multicoin. In addition to our remote-friendly work culture, we offer the following to all Aptos employees:

  • Health insurance coverage
  • Equipment of your choice
  • Unlimited Vacation time
  • Competitive Salary
  • Equity (i.e. RSUs)
  • Protocol Token Grants
