Role Description

Interested in helping us change the world of payments forever? The Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) is looking for a talented, experienced, and hands-on engineer to join our team. In this role you’ll be designing, building, and implementing changes to Stellar Core - the primary distributed system that is used for maintaining Stellar's ledger and obtaining global consensus.

As a member of our team, you'll have the opportunity to work on a wide variety of problems focused on growing and scaling our global network. This includes inventing semantics to enable new possibilities for participants of the network, writing features that promote the growth of our peer to peer network of validators, facilitating scalability towards fast and reliable transactions, and keeping the network protected against bad actors across a wide variety of security vectors.

About Stellar (Stellar Development Foundation)

Stellar is an open network for sending and exchanging value of any kind. Our global network enables digitization of assets - from carbon credits to currencies - and enables movement around the internet with ease. In doing so, it’s faster, cheaper, and more environmentally friendly than alternative platforms, and it empowers users and organizations to create a global, dependable network of trust while maintaining decentralization.

The Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) was founded in 2014 by Jed McCaleb. We consider Stellar the “platform of the people” - building world-class, decentralized, and open-source technology that’s accessible and affordable to everyone. We believe that our technology and mission enables our diverse developer ecosystem to build innovative and transformative technologies on top of Stellar. Most of all, we firmly believe that we are building the financial system of the future - and that at the heart of it should be an inclusive culture.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Company Culture

In order to build a financial system that is inclusive, diverse, and egalitarian, we believe that we have to start with our own culture. We believe it is important to be transparent, inclusive, and to hold everyone to high standards of integrity.

We're also a curious bunch, constantly looking for new ways to learn and build, and we tend to have a strong balance of debate and mindfulness, and needing to just get things done.

Finally, we're humble, and we enjoy being authentic with each other both inside and outside of work. Many of us maintain good friendships with each other outside of work, and are generally open and welcoming to all.
