Open jobs
As a cryptography analyst you will be a part of a small, dynamic team that both engineers and reviews mission-critical cryptographic code. On any given day, you may be helping a client ensure their implementation of a novel cryptographic scheme is air-tight, collaborating with academics to bring their cutting edge ideas into reality, or developing new cryptanalysis tools. Since our team is small, you will own everything you do, and play a key role in conceiving of new projects. If you discover a gap in the open source cryptography community, we will help secure funding to develop it through our close relationships with academics and government research agencies. We are language agnostic, though we currently are using C++, Python, and Haskell.
Requirements
  • Experienced with applied cryptography and cryptanalysis 
  • Sufficient math background to read relevant academic research
  • Familiar with the Git (and Github) workflow for development
  • Proficient in one or more programming languages. In order of preference: C++, C, Rust, Go, or Python. Bonus points if you have Haskell experience.
  • Clear communicator and quick to share in deep technical discussions
  • Highly self-motivated and able to drive new projects
  • Attracted to learning new technologies
  • Able to communicate complex technical material to clients and funding agencies
  • Adept at writing. We highly encourage all engineers to get regular face-time with customers, to write company blog posts about their accomplishments, and to deliver presentations to the technical community.
Benefits
  • Our workforce is 50% remote. Many employees choose to work from home. As long as you keep delivering good work, we keep our hands off your personal style and let you manage your work day as you work best.
  • Liberal expense policy for acquiring the equipment and software that help you do your job. If we need hardware, we buy it. Everyone has rack space and corporate cards.
  • We can tell you exactly what projects you'll work on and the people you'll collaborate with. If it's not what you want, no need to initiate a lateral transfer, we can shift your work without an issue.
  • Every year, we pay for the best in conference training, technical training, and managerial classes for our team. Everyone is encouraged to identify additional opportunities for personal professional growth.
  • We routinely share and highlight the work our employees are specifically paid to do via our blog, product offerings, and conference talks. We talk about more than just side projects.
  • We're at the forefront of a number of markets and have the internal expertise and the ambition to capitalize on those opportunities. See your work in use and valued by many others.
