Reserves mission

Everyones money should be secure. Unfortunately, due to broken financial and monetary institutions around the world, billions of people don't have access to basic financial services like a trustworthy savings account. Were trying to change that.

Reserve is a blockchain-based, decentralized currency that is always worth $1, is cheap to send, and provides its users access to basic financial services. While Reserve is valuable to traders and app developers inside the crypto ecosystem, were most excited about it replacing inflationary currencies and dysfunctional banks. And with the currencies in Venezuela, Iran, Argentina, Turkey, and elsewhere approaching hyperinflation, now seems like the right moment for people to choose something new.

Decentralized currencies have the opportunity to change global financial and monetary institutions for the better. If youre excited by this idea, we would love to hear from you.

If you'd like to learn more about what we're working on, check out this recent interview of our CEO Nevin Freeman on the podcast Hidden Forces:

Your role

We are taking a maximally nimble approach to developing extraordinarily robust programs, and the best practices in the domains were working in change on a month-by-month basis. In fact, we need you to help refine those practices. You will lead the engineering team in its mission to efficiently ship a smart contract thats correct and secure. Here are some of the responsibilities youll take on towards that goal:

    • Designing and developing tools for testing and securing smart contracts.
    • Keenly auditing Ethereum smart contracts.
    • Automating fuzz testing for smart contracts.
    • Seeking out and insisting upon further ways to make our software more reliable.
    • Modeling the economic and game-theoretic consequences of technical choices.
    • Lucidly communicating your technical reasoning and development plans.
    • Helping our team maintain operational security.
    • Writing technical documentation.
    • Leading development of software projects.
    • Mentoring less-experienced engineers in software methodology and architecture.

Your day at Reserve

Show up at 10am for our full-team meeting. In the morning, build out a prototype for our simulated exchange. Have lunch with the engineering team, where you explain how a subtle architectural distinction affects the operation of our protocol. In the afternoon, comb through our testing plans, find types of vulnerabilities that wouldnt be covered by them, and improve those plans. At 6pm, have some food delivered to the office and mentor another engineer about design choices theyre making.


    • You have demonstrable experience in software engineering, technical leadership, and software architecture.
    • You are adept at learning new technical concepts.
    • You are skilled at designing new systems from scratch.
    • You are interested in learning and building things in new languages and frameworks.
    • You are willing to throw away everything you were just working on in the name of agility.
    • You're a fit for our eccentric culture (read more about it here).

In your application please link to some code that you wrote that reflects your abilities (e.g. github).

    • Familiarity with the blockchain industry.
    • Familiarity with Go.
    • You can think in the security mindset.


    • Competitive compensation with the ability to customize cash versus equity.
    • A beautiful office with views overlooking Lake Merritt. Excellent restaurants and coffee shops right down the street.
    • Health insurance coverage.
    • Free gym membership (the gym is 1 block away).
    • Well stocked kitchen (youll never run out of LaCroix).
