Job Description

Looking to join a world-class blockchain development team? Ava Labs makes it simple to deploy high-performance solutions for Web3, led by innovations on Avalanche. The company was founded by Cornell computer scientists, who partnered with Wall Street veterans and early Web3 leaders to execute a promising vision for redefining the way people build permissionless networks. Ava Labs is redefining the way people create value with Web3. Join us as we empower people to easily and freely digitize all the world’s assets on one open, programmable blockchain platform


  • Extend the Avalanche Primary Network to make deploying and interacting with Subnets simpler and more accessible
  • Design powerful abstractions over the EVM such that its core components can be independently deployed, optimized, and better adapted to Avalanche
  • Write and maintain low-level libraries that Custom Virtual Machines can use to communicate with AvalancheGo

Here are some specific examples of projects you could contribute to:

  • Make P-Chain uptime voting more scalable using BLS Multi-Signatures
  • Transition Subnets to use dynamic fees to price Subnet registration
  • Augment the security of Permissionless Subnets with Avalanche
  • Enable Cross-Subnet Communication across the Avalanche Network using Avalanche Warp Messaging

You can view a full list of the projects we are working on here:


  • You believe in a future where blockchain technologies make the world a more fair and free place for everyone.
  • You have the desire to work on open-source code and engage with the community. You wish to work together with other talented contributors instead of working alone.
  • You are a coder. You prefer implementing a proof-of-concept before writing a multi-page technical document.
  • You create and find projects that provide value. You don’t need to wait for someone to tell you what to research or work on.
  • You have an obsession with code quality and performance. You ship code when it is ready, not as soon as it passes unit tests.


  • Demonstrated capability in subject area (open source code or published work is a bonus)
  • Golang or Rust programming experience

Salary Range: $190,400 to $238,000
