    We are looking for a talented Systems Engineer to join our team and help us build scalable, performant, and reliable backend systems that power our products. As a Systems Engineer, you will be responsible for designing, developing, and maintaining low level applications, APIs, and services that interact with blockchains. You will work closely with our product managers, backend and research engineers, and other engineering teams to deliver high-quality software solutions that meet our customers' needs.

    About Us:

    At Herodotus, 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 and enable 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.

    Key Requirements:

    • Strong proficiency in English (C1/C2 level)
    • Deep familiarity with a low-level language such as Rust, C++, or Go
    • Ability to work with external codebases
    • Experience with making open-source contributions
    • Basic understanding of compilers
    • Ability to work with codebases implementing virtual machines
    • Basic understanding of blockchains
    • Ability to work in a startup environment

    Good to have:

    • Experience with Solidity or Cairo.
    • Bachelor's degree in Mathematics, Computer Science, or other relevant fields
    • Basic knowledge of cryptography and security best practices
    • Solid understanding of software design patterns and how to apply them in real-world scenarios
    • Proficiency with message queuing systems such as RabbitMQ and caching systems such as Redis
    • Experience with integrating 3rd party APIs and building scalable, reliable, and fault-tolerant systems
    • Experience with containerization technologies such as Docker


    • Design and develop scalable, performant, and reliable backend systems that power our products
    • Write high-quality, maintainable, and testable code using Rust, C++, Go, and other relevant technologies
    • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to define and implement APIs, data models, and system architectures
    • Optimize and fine-tune database queries, caching, and message queuing systems to improve performance and reduce latency
    • Troubleshoot and debug production issues, and provide timely and effective solutions
    • Stay up-to-date with the latest backend technologies, frameworks, and libraries, and identify opportunities to improve our systems and processes

    If you are a passionate and skilled Systems Engineer who enjoys working in a collaborative and fast-paced environment, we encourage you to apply. We offer a competitive salary, flexible working hours, a dynamic and inclusive culture, and the opportunity to work on challenging and impactful projects.
