Swarm is a system of peer-to-peer networked nodes for a decentralised storage and communication service. 

Swarm could shape the future towards a self-sovereign global society and permissionless open markets. On Swarm, applications run autonomously yet securely in a planetary-scale deployment and execution environment.

Bee is a Swarm client implemented in Go. Its the basic building block for the Swarm Network. 

Bee provides low level constructs for file storage, feeds, key-value stores and untraceable communication, through solid, well-tested code delivered in an agile manner.

Key technologies are Go, libp2p, protobuf, leveldb, and go-ethereum, as well as various cryptographic libraries. 

Your role:

  • Take architectural decisions for our p2p distributed network
  • Suggest improvement solutions for our codebase and the testing process
  • Development of the reference Swarm implementation in Go aka Bee
  • Developing domain-specific knowledge and expertise in the Swarm incentive layer implementation
  • Bringing code up to spec
  • Delivering well-tested code
  • Conducting thorough code reviews to your peers

Your profile:

  • You have 5+ years of experience in a similar position & at least 3 years with GoLang
