A bit about the role:
Here at Immutable, we are actively seeking engineers to join our diverse team and contribute to the development and maintenance of our zk-rollup infrastructure!
As a result, we are currently looking for a Protocol Blockchain Engineer who will play a crucial role in supporting our mission at Immutable. This role involves implementing, researching, and designing node infrastructure, performant provers, and rollups specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of games and NFT projects.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Work with one of the best scaling teams in this space
  • Deploy and extend our products, design and implement cross-rollup asset bridges
  • Produce novel innovations in the zk-rollup space
  • Drive the creation, definition and alignment of technical design decisions & architectural evolution
  • Help shape and execute a plan to evolve our zk-rollup infrastructure
  • Propose new initiatives and technologies to improve the scalability, maintainability, and reliability of Immutable X systems
  • Be a multiplier of engineering capability

We would love you to have:

  • Hands-on Ethereum blockchain development experience using Solidity, Golang, and TypeScript
  • Experience working with distributed/replicated systems or large microservice architectures
  • The ability to articulate your blockchain knowledge and teach best practices to the wider team
  • Effective communication skills, with empathy, allowing you to communicate effectively across a range of stakeholders, and to collaborate with product teams.

Some extra skills that would be awesome:

  • Experience across the Ethereum ecosystem (e.g. JSON RPC, wallet interfaces) and understanding how blockchains like Ethereum work at a protocol level (e.g. virtual machines, consensus)
  • Opcode-level EVM experience and exposure to ZKPs either directly or indirectly
  • Blockchain development knowledge - understanding other components of the blockchain ecosystem (e.g. testing frameworks, ethers.js/frontend integration points)
