Full Time

Job Description:

Chainflip is a groundbreaking swapping protocol that facilitates native asset swaps across different blockchains, using advanced Multi-Party Computation (MPC) and Threshold Signature Schemes (TSS) to eliminate the need for wrapped tokens. With a state-of-the-art substrate-based Chainflip State Chain, the protocol tracks balances, processes events, and executes instructions efficiently, providing unparalleled service in the DeFi space.

Chainflip is seeking a Senior Rust Engineer to join the Protocol Team, which is responsible for the core components of the Chainflip protocol—the Chainflip Node and the Chainflip Engine. This role involves not only strategic development but also hands-on coding, making substantial contributions to our substrate-based blockchain node and companion processes that interact with various blockchains.


  • Lead the development and optimization of the Chainflip Node and Engine, ensuring robust, secure, and scalable solutions.
  • Engage in hands-on coding, primarily in Rust, to improve existing systems and implement new features.
  • Collaborate closely with other team members to solve complex technical challenges related to blockchain and cross-chain interactions.
  • Contribute to the design and architecture discussions, helping to shape the future of Chainflip’s infrastructure.
  • Maintain and enhance code quality through robust testing, documentation, and adherence to best practices.


  • 6+ years of software development experience, with a strong preference for backgrounds in systems programming.
  • Proficient in Rust, with real-world experience in building and scaling applications; familiarity with blockchain technology is highly desirable.
  • Strong understanding of distributed systems, P2P networking, or blockchain protocol layers.
  • Proven ability to work independently and collaboratively in a dynamic and remote-first environment.
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and a strong understanding of cryptographic protocols and algorithms.


  • Experience with Substrate, Cosmos SDK, or similar frameworks.
  • Knowledge of TSS and MPC, particularly in a blockchain context.
  • Previous involvement with open-source projects or early-stage startups in the DeFi or blockchain space.
  • An interest in decentralized finance and a passion for innovation within the cryptocurrency sector.


  • A competitive salary and equity/tokens package, reflecting your experience and role within the company.
  • Flexibility to work remotely from anywhere in Europe, with optional relocation to Berlin.
  • Comprehensive benefits including “Deutschland Ticket” public transport, Urban Sports Club membership, and a personal development budget.
  • Generous vacation policy and additional loyalty holidays for long-term team members.
  • Regular team retreats and a vibrant office culture with activities ranging from cooking sessions to sports and music events.
