Chia is hiring!

We believe that anyone should be able to farm and that cryptocurrency should be easier to use and more secure than cash. That means we need people who want to create internet class user experience on the most secure blockchain and smart transaction platform created so far.

Many on the Chia team are located in the SF Bay Area but remote is fine as we have people all over the world - Keybase, GitHub, and Zoom are how we work. Geographic restrictions, if any, will be noted in a job specification.

Please send your resume and cover letter to [email protected]. Please put the role you are applying for as part of the subject line and include anything additionally required by a specific job posting.

Software Engineer

Chia Networks is hiring technically gifted programmers to expand our team of cryptographers and engineers building our blockchain and smart transaction platform.

We once asked Bram what to put here and he said, “We need engineers to press buttons on computers…” That said, you will get to work with some of best engineers and cryptographers in the world - on the latest protocols and research.

  • Extend functionality and refactor codebases in Python or C++.
  • Write clear, secure code and unit testing that runs on Windows, Linux, and MacOS for both x64 and ARM64.
