At Improbable, we’ve been venturing into unexplored territory for over a decade, seeking new ways to connect people and amplify their lives. We’re shaping virtual worlds of unprecedented scale for the gaming, web3, and related sectors, creating world-changing technology from Morpheus to M2. With us, you’ll tackle questions that no one else is asking and find answers that define the future.
We are working with the Virtual Society Foundation to design and build the worlds highest throughput EVM-based L1 blockchain. We are looking for experienced blockchain protocol engineers to be part of the founding core team, designing and building out our high performance stack.
The Virtual Society Foundation has received initial funding from MSquared, an ecosystem of interoperable metaverses backed, to build a blockchain and set of protocols that will support the on-chain services and activities required by a truly decentralised network of metaverses.

Your Opportunity:

  • Design and implement our core L1 blockchain protocol.
  • Optimise the core stack, finding and improving our key bottlenecks.
  • Driving the project towards an external devnet and beyond.
  • Supporting and operating the protocol once it is externally launched.
  • Stay abreast of the latest developments in blockchain technology.

Why You're Made For This:

  • Direct experience building and launching an L1 or L2 blockchain.
  • Strong proficiency in C, C++ or Rust, with professional experience.
  • Experience with developing high-performance software and networked systems.
  • Ability to drive an outcome and unblock yourself and those around you with high productivity.
  • Ability to work independently and in a team environment.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.

This role is available as remote, hybrid or in-office. We have a great office space in Spitalfields in London but are equally happy if you'd prefer to work from home some, or all of the time. We are 'Flexa' certified, meaning our entire employee experience is anchored around flexibility and autonomy.
While we think the above experience could be important, we’re keen to hear from people that believe they have valuable experience to bring to the role. If you identify with the team and mission, but not all of our requirements, then please still apply.
