With the high level goals of preserving the right to privacy, mitigating the risk of censorship, and promoting economic trade in a transparent, open manner, Status is building a community where anyone is welcome to join and contribute.

As an organization, Status seeks to push the web3 ecosystem forward through research, creation of developer tools, and support of the open source community.

As a product, Status is an open source, Ethereum-based app that gives users the power to chat, transact, and access a revolutionary world of DApps on the decentralized web. But Status is also building foundational infrastructure for the whole Ethereum ecosystem, including the Nimbus ETH 1.0 and 2.0 clients, the Keycard hardware wallet, and the Waku messaging protocol (a continuation of Whisper).

  • Establish rules and create a structure for automatic management of the order book. Design rules for risk management across exchanges and asset pairs;
  • Monitor the performance of the strategies deployed into production and propose their improvements.

You ideally will have:

  • M.S. or PhD degree from a top university in Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, or related area;
  • Experience with low-latency programming C++;

  • Prior experience in cryptocurrency trading, e.g. excellent knowledge of cryptocurrencies and their mechanisms, a solid understanding of decentralised finance instruments and strategies, and others;

Bonus points if:

  • Knowledge of networking protocols and REST / WebSocket / FIX
