    Friendly offer

    We are seeking a Junior Research Engineer to join our team and contribute to our blockchain and cryptocurrency projects. As a Junior Research Engineer, you will be responsible for researching and understanding blockchain technologies, Ethereum scalability solutions, and the intersection of game theory and economics within the cryptocurrency space. You will work closely with our engineering and product teams to provide technical insights and support the development of innovative solutions.

    About Us:

    Herodotus is an engineering company that specializes in building cutting-edge cryptography solutions, such as Storage Proofs, Zero-knowledge proof verifiers, provers, and more. We are building solutions that provide smart contracts with synchronous access to on-chain data across Ethereum layers. By leveraging storage proofs and zero-knowledge proofs, our solutions allow smart contracts to read and process historical and current on-chain data. This enables developers to write contracts that can seamlessly retrieve data from L1 State on L2s, L2 State on L1s, and L2 State on L2s, eliminating the necessity for asynchronous messaging.

    About You:

    You are a highly motivated problem solver with a strong interest in blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and the underlying economics and game theory principles. You have a proactive approach to learning and enjoy tackling complex research challenges. You are ideally a recent graduate who has engaged in academic research or participated in related projects, demonstrating your passion for blockchain and cryptocurrency.

    Key Requirements:

    - Basic understanding of blockchain technology and Ethereum or a keen interest in learning about them.

    - Strong interest in the cryptocurrency space, with a focus on scalability and economic models.

    - Ability to write and articulate complex technical content clearly.

    - Basic experience with programming languages such as NodeJS and Typescript.

    - Familiarity with AWS services such as Lambda, API Gateway, S3, and DynamoDB is a plus.

    - Understanding of software design patterns and their practical applications.

    - Basic experience with NoSQL databases such as DynamoDB and relational databases like Postgres.

    - Familiarity with containerization technologies such as Docker.

    - Proficiency in English (B2/C1 level).

    Good to Have:

    - Bachelor's degree in Mathematics, Computer Science, Economics, or another relevant field.

    - Basic knowledge of cryptography and security best practices.

    - Knowledge of Rust or Go Language.

    - Any familiarity with the cryptocurrency industry.

    - Experience with message queuing systems such as RabbitMQ and caching systems such as Redis.


    - Conduct research on blockchain technologies, Ethereum scalability solutions, and the economic principles underlying cryptocurrencies.

    - Write high-quality, maintainable, and testable code using NodeJS, Typescript, and other relevant technologies as needed.

    - Collaborate with cross-functional teams to define and implement technical solutions and research findings.

    - Stay up-to-date with the latest trends and advancements in blockchain technology, game theory, and economics.

    - Provide technical insights and support the development of innovative blockchain solutions.

    - Assist in the design and development of scalable, performant, and reliable systems.

    - Troubleshoot and debug issues, providing timely and effective solutions.

    - Learn quickly and take on increasing responsibilities, with opportunities for rapid promotion based on performance and skill development.

    If you are a passionate and eager Junior Research Engineer who enjoys working in a collaborative and fast-paced environment, we encourage you to apply. We offer competitive pay, flexible working hours, a dynamic and inclusive culture, and the opportunity to work on challenging and impactful projects. With us, you'll learn quickly due to our high standards and have the potential for rapid career advancement.
