Did you recently gain a Master/PhD in the area of Applied Cryptology?

Do you want to design, code and co-invent the next generation of Distributed Systems protocols?

At QPQ, we are building the Internet of Economics, a new approach to a compliant and regulated financial systems infrastructure.

Join a team of mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers and self-taught individuals.

What do we give you?
  • A stimulating, Socratic intellectual environment.
  • As Socratic implies, we want you to have a voice. We do not recruit brilliant people to put them in boxes, we recruit brilliant people so they can push the horizons even further.
  • Hybrid office approach – we have been a distributed workforce from the start. This role is centred around our European axis, so we expect you to live within +/- 2 hours of CET. We get together a complete team every quarter, so you must be willing to travel and embrace being part of a diverse team drawn from many walks of life and cultures.
  • Competitive salary, travel expense budget and many future opportunities to participate in the company’s growth.
  • The mother of all intellectual challenges!
  • Perform research and engineering on cryptographic protocols applied in a DeFi context.
  • Working with a multi-faceted team of practitioners on a set of blockchain-based privacy protocols interacting in a DeFi environment and providing compliance with financial regulations.
  • Focus on modern zero knowledge protocols that guarantee privacy and compliance.
  • Master or Ph.D. in cryptography or a closely related field.
  • Be able to prototype protocols/schemes/algorithms in at least one relevant programming language.
  • General understanding of full-stack system architecture.
  • Have a thorough approach and be committed to high quality output.
  • Have prior research/code already published in the space.
  • A proactive, self-driven approach and problem-solving mindset.
