Engineering at taraxa.io

Engineering team and processes

We run a weekly sprint and periodic updates. All our code is managed through GitHub with regular code reviews and required tests for every commit.

Technical Challenges

How to create an infinitely-scalable decentralized & distributed network while maintaining security and latency requirements under a Byzantine environment.

Projects you might work on
  • Build a P2P network transmission protocol to drastically reduce network diameter.

  • Build a set of concurrent objects (e.g., hashtables, counters) and expose them to developers to maximize fine-grained concurrency in their smart contract coding.

  • Build a low-latency multi-signature scheme with BLS.

Tech stack

Working at taraxa.io

We're very easy-going and reasonable people but highly goal-oriented. We work pretty hard but are very flexible with schedules, and understand that tons of stuff happens in life and we work together to get around it.

Perks & benefits
  • Flexible Hours

    We usually do 10am to 6pm, sometimes more, sometimes less, pretty flexible. If a team member needs to take a few days to work from home that's pretty cool too. As long as the job gets done and no additional collaborative friction is created we're OK with pretty much anything.

  • Health Insurance

    Free medical (Anthem Platinum PPO), dental and vision (Delta). We benchmarked against some of the largest tech companies in the valley and we're comparable.

  • Work from Home

    Work from home is our default way to work! Our entire team has been working from home since COVID hit, and we've had a globally distributed team since the project's founding. We have a mature collaborative process in place to ensure that everyone is productive, even when it's across 3 timezones with 15+ hours of time difference.
