Rust Engineer (Quilt)

About Quilt:

Quilt is a research-focused team in ConsenSys R&D. We’re focused solely on pushing the ecosystem forward - no strings attached to business functions.

Quilt has one simple mission: push forward progress on Ethereum 2.0. We also love Rust <3, we’re fully open source and 100% remote.

Although the mission is simple, beyond the Beacon Chain, these are the many contributions needed to continue building on Eth 2.0:

  • Build infrastructure, simulations and tests for an end to end eth 2.0 prototype and testnet ready for benchmarking and viability studies
  • Design and build the spec for the execution environments - optimal accumulators, designs, proofs
  • Explore different approaches and models for cross shard calls
  • Prototype and research atomicity and synchronicity in a sharded system 
  • Research on incentives, game theory and specification of fee markets/transaction broadcasting
  • Integrate state channels and layer 2 markets into a multi-sharded system
  • Formalize the Ethereum 2.0 VM (Web Assembly)
  • Actively contribute to


As a Rust engineer, you will initially be most active in the development and iteration of the testnet. Followup work would likely be focused around viability studies, benchmarking, and networking/scalability across multiple shards. Support around WASM and the execution layer is also needed if interest is shown.


  • Rust and WASM experience preferable but C++ or other systems level experience ok
  • Understanding of ethereum and blockchain tech
  • Highly pragmatic engineer balancing research and prototyping
  • Knowledge and understanding of cryptography and the field as a whole, a plus
