Our mission is to empower passionate people in the research and development of blockchain interoperability technologies. We support teams building secure, open-source, and decentralized products within the Wormhole ecosystem.

The Role: Smart Contract Engineer
As a Smart Contract Engineer at the Wormhole Foundation, you will make significant contributions to Wormhole’s ecosystem of open source smart contracts and protocols. You will either drive or partner with domain experts through the entire life-cycle

  • Contribute to the development of smart contracts on blockchains such as Ethereum (and various EVM side chains and L2s), Solana, Sui, Aptos, and more.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to gather customer requirements, analyze business needs, and translate them into smart contract code.
  • Follow best practices for secure smart contract development and build future best practices alongside Wormhole security researchers.
  • Maintain and improve Wormhole’s testing framework and thoroughly test your code with various kinds of tests.
  • Stay up to date with the latest in smart contract technology, tooling, best practices, and industry trends.

Who you are:

  • Relevant tertiary qualifications in computer science or a closely related field (bachelors/masters) and/or relevant work experience
  • Be high agency and effect the outcomes they wish to see.
  • Demonstrate customer obsession and feel pride in building great experiences.
  • Be highly collaborative with the internal team, other Wormhole collaborators, and customers.
  • Care deeply about the business outcomes of your work and challenge priorities when the business impact is unclear.
  • Have experience with writing production smart contracts in one environment, but be willing to learn and flex into other languages and runtimes as needed.
  • Enjoy working remotely with a talented global team and ideally based in the Americas time zones.

If you don’t meet all of these criteria, we’d still love to hear from you anyway if you think you’d be a great fit for this role!
