Aptos is a people-first blockchain on a mission to help billions of people achieve universal and fair access to decentralized assets in a safe and scalable way.

Founded by some of the original creators and maintainers that researched, designed, and built the Diem blockchain to serve this purpose, we have dedicated several years toward this mission. We believe the open-source Diem technology we have developed is an important foundation of a safe and scalable web3 world where everyone has more equitable opportunities to grow and access financial assets with lower fees and fewer intermediaries.  

Aptos (Ohlone for "The People") encompasses our mission and ethos for why we build.

About The Role

The scope, as it currently stands, is open-ended, but some projects will be likely from the following areas: governance, tokenomics, decentralized finance, games, social.

What you'll be doing:

  • Writing smart contracts in one or more programming languages that provide new and powerful functionality for a variety of internal and external applications
  • Developing tooling for smart contract development and deployment
  • Guiding and onboarding new developers into the ecosystem
  • Develop and maintain high quality software engineering practices and principles in a highly visible open-source project
