Why join us?

  • We are building a high performance permissionless blockchain. There are a ton of really hard engineering problems: everything from optimizing low latency epidemic protocols, to secure sandboxing of untrusted code, to GPU acceleration for cryptographic operations. We have been open source and distributed from day one.

  • Over the past year, we've experienced meteoric growth after the launch of our mainnet in March of 2020. Our last hackathon had over 100 fully fleshed out projects launch in under two weeks, and to date, we've processed over 13 billion transactions on our network.

  • The founding technical team that created the protocol came from Qualcomm, where they managed projects such as Firefox OS and the BREW Operating System. Other members of our engineering team come from Apple, Mozilla, Intel, Google, and CERN.

Working at Solana Labs

Solana is a very independent, self motivated workplace that allows employees to construct their ideal setup to be their most productive selves. If you love collaborating with engineers, you can; if you want to work asynchronously and participate in minimal meetings, you can too. We want to allow you to do your best work, while maintaining a healthy work life balance.

Diversity and Inclusion

We're looking to hire folks that traverse all sections of our organization to help improve the bifurcation between engineering / operations.

We regularly host remote happy hours, all hands, and welcome meetings for all new hires to get acquainted with the rest of the team.

We have countless programs to help individuals grow while working within Solana: mentorship arrangements; open office hours; a generous personal education stipend; and donation matching programs to non profit organizations.
