Blockchain/Bridge Engineer



Posted on Friday, August 19, 2022
About Us
Aurora is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) running on the NEAR Protocol, and one of the most exciting Ethereum scaling solutions in the ecosystem.
The Aurora environment consists of the Aurora Engine, a high performance EVM—Ethereum Virtual Machine—and the Rainbow Bridge, facilitating trustless transfer of ETH and ERC-20 tokens between Ethereum and Aurora, within a great user experience.
Aurora exists and is operated as an independent, self-funded initiative, but will continue to leverage the shared team DNA and continually evolving technology of the NEAR Protocol.
At Aurora Labs we are looking for a knowledgeable and experienced Blockchain Engineer to join the Bridge team.
In this role, you will contribute to building the Rainbow Bridge, its protocol, relayer services, and bridge connectors. You will be responsible for bridging various algorithmically complex systems together, which will require learning and understanding their internals. Your tasks will also involve supporting the interaction between Rainbow Bridge and Aurora Engine (EVM).
This is a full-time engagement remote role with a preferable European time zone.
If you are eager to dive into the competing cross-chain ecosystem and would like to work in an energetic environment, surrounded by highly productive and meticulous engineers, do not hesitate to apply!
