Principal Distributed Network Engineer

Remote or Vancouver, BC
Dapper Labs is the creator of industry-leading experiences including CryptoKitties and NBA Top Shot, as well as Dapper, the simplest way to manage your assets and use the blockchain. We are the original developers behind Flow, a new decentralized blockchain and cryptocurrency designed from the ground up for scalability and ease of use.

Flow is currently fully functional and operating in mainnet, powered by hundreds of nodes distributed around the world, and running several consumer applications including NBA Top Shot. However Flow is a new architecture, and as such there is a long list of known areas of improvement and optimization in the protocol, as well as several open research problems that are keeping our university partners busy.
Immediate needs:
  • Develop custom networking solutions for reliable, low-latency message transmission over unreliable connections
  • Need to understand why HTTP/2.0 is such a big deal, and could implement something even better given a specific constraint set
