P2P Network Engineer


We are seeking a peer-to-peer network engineer to help implement the Subspace Network, a radically decentralized, next-generation blockchain written in Rust, using the Substrate framework. Subspace employs a novel proof-of-storage consensus algorithm and a decoupled execution framework, which allows it to scale far beyond existing blockchains, without sacrificing security or decentralization. Subspace Labs is an early-stage, venture-backed startup with a globally distributed team. To learn more visit our website and read the technical whitepaper. Your Responsibilities Implement a fault-tolerant, load-balanced, and efficiently-retrievable distributed file-system based on the specifications in our white paper.Implement a simplified and streamlined Kademlia Distributed Hash Table (K-DHT) to serve as an indexing layer for the Subspace Network.Develop a torrent-style synchronization service for new farmers and a tit-for-tat bandwidth sharing mechanism for existing farmers. Basic Requirements Experience employing or implementing peer-to-peer protocols including gossip networks, distributed hash tables, or distributed file systems.  Theoretical background in distributed systems, such as peer-to-peer networking, as well as cryptographic fundamentals.Strong knowledge of a modern systems programming language, such as Rust, C++, or Go and willing to learn Rust.
