As stewards of the Polkadot and Substrate ecosystem, Parity is laying the foundation for a better web. We believe in a decentralised web that respects the freedom and data of individuals and empowers developers to create better services. Our vision is to create a world based on truthful, rather than trustful, interactions.

Parity is one of the world's most experienced core blockchain infrastructure companies, having built and pioneered some of the most advanced technologies in the blockchain sector.

With a remote-first team, Parity is building open-source technologies for developers and organisations to implement and build upon. Our Web3 tech stack includes Polkadot, Substrate, and Kusama.

People in our collective are:

  • Highly motivated to contribute to Parity’s mission and be part of something bigger
  • Excited to work on projects that are groundbreaking and complex
  • Autonomous workers that self-initiate, but also collaborate well with others
  • Taking maximum accountability and having minimum ego at work
  • Comfortable with chaos and adapting to the ever-changing Web3 space
  • Continuously educating themselves about Parity and the wider ecosystem

About the team:

The Polkadot Runtime team is responsible for the business logic of Polkadot and the tools to work with it. These range from lower level design like FRAME macros, to messaging formats like XCM, to applications like bridges, to system architecture.

  • Work with leadership at Parity to help define the most valuable objectives for Engineering;
  • Turn ideas into concrete roadmaps;
  • Communicate with founders in the ecosystem to make sure they have the resources they need to succeed on the POlkadot tech stack.

About you:

  • Track record of work with complex, multi-stakeholder projects;
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills;
  • Background in engineering, an ability to understand technical architecture and tradeoffs when making engineering decisions;
  • Ability to break complex, high-level ideas into concrete steps;
  • Some programming ability is a plus.

About working for us:

  • Competitive remuneration packages based on iterative market research, including tokens (where legally possible)
  • “Future of work” environment that’s remote-first and self-initiating with flexible hours
  • Team mates that are genuinely excited about their impact and projects
  • Access to the brightest minds in this space to learn about Web3 and develop your skills and knowledge while on the job
  • Becoming part of the wider ecosystem (career and networking opportunities)
  • Team and company-wide retreats
  • Work laptop

Those joining our collective as an employee in Germany, Portugal, and the U.K. also enjoy benefits such as health care, parental leave, PTO (28 days per year) and local team events.
