About Protocol Labs
Protocol Labs drives breakthroughs in computing to push humanity forward. Protocol Labs is a product-development lab, but behind the protocols and tools we build, behind the research and implementations, are passionate people, teammates and community members. Most teams in the Protocol Labs Network are fully distributed and work remotely around the world. Engineers, researchers, and operators work in the open to improve the internet — humanity's most important technology — as we explore new advances at the intersection of many exciting fields (crypto, networks, distributed systems) and cultures (startups, research, open source, distributed work).
We seek a Developer Productivity Engineer who will design and build products to empower Protocol Labs’ engineering team and our open source collaborators to deliver more, faster, and safer.
Protocol Labs is an open-source research, development, and deployment laboratory. Our projects include IPFS, Filecoin, libp2p, and many more. We aim to make human existence orders of magnitude better through technology. We are a fully distributed company. Our team of more than 100 members works remotely and in the open to improve the internet — humanity's most important technology — as we explore new advances in computing and related fields.
As a Developer Productivity Engineer for Protocol Labs, you’ll be one of the first in a newly formed Developer Productivity Team. You will own the design, development, implementation, and support of products that create a solid and stable foundation for our open source developers with satisfying automation, tooling, and defaults. We’re moving fast, and the season is ripe for “builder tools” to enhance our productivity.
Your customers are other Protocol Labs engineers and their open source collaborators. They will have ideas of problems that stand in their way of fully shipping software. They want to work with an expert who can build tools that make them more productive. In addition to meeting their communicated needs, you’ll use your “nose for efficiency” to identify/propose/build solutions on their behalf that makes their life better.
