About Us

Axiom is using zero knowledge proofs to scale smart contract applications in a new way. Our recent V2 release on mainnet allows smart contracts to compute over the entire history of Ethereum in a fully trustless way. This is critical infrastructure to help blockchain applications scale and will empower developers to build novel decentralized applications with the power of ZK.

We are a small but incredibly strong team backed by the best investors in crypto. We’re looking for exceptional people who are excited to work on challenging and impactful problems in a fast-paced environment. Our office is in NYC and working in person in NY is our strong preference, but we're open to remote candidates as well.

The Role

We are looking for a Developer Relations Engineer to join a startup using zero-knowledge proofs to scale smart contract applications. You will be responsible for building developer tools to drive adoption of Axiom. Your role will involve writing developer tooling, example applications, and developer documentation to make integrating into Axiom easier for developers. You will also produce technical content and interact with online developer communities to get feedback on Axiom and drive open-source contributions to our repos.

We are looking for someone with strong empathy for smart contract developers, the ability to design simple abstractions around complex technical tools, and strong written communication skills. We also value creativity and taste in spotting emerging new application areas for Axiom across crypto.

Who you are

  • You have experience with developer tools for smart contract application developers (Hardhat, Foundry, wagmi, ethers).

  • You have used Solidity and Javascript.

  • You have strong written and verbal communication skills.

  • You are detail oriented and operationally excellent.

Bonuses

  • You have experience in smart contract application development.
