Job Description

What is Polygon?

Polygon is the leading platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its growing suite of products offers developers easy access to all major scaling and infrastructure solutions: L2 solutions (ZK Rollups and Optimistic Rollups), sidechains, hybrid solutions, stand-alone and enterprise chains, data availability solutions, and more. Polygon’s scaling solutions have seen widespread adoption with 20,000+ applications hosted, 1B+ total transactions processed, 140M+ unique user addresses, and $5B+ in assets secured.

What does the Polygon Miden Team do?

Polygon Miden aims to be the most innovative and easy-to-use zkRollup for Ethereum. We will enable use cases beyond what is currently possible with EVM-centric architectures, e.g. parallel transaction execution and account abstraction. At the heart of our rollup is the Miden Virtual Machine – a zk-optimized VM designed from the ground up. Currently, we focus on the rollup design, recursive verification, and developer experience.

Job Description

The Senior Rust Engineer will help design and implement core components of the Miden rollup. You will contribute to R&D efforts for the rollup architecture (state model, transaction model, execution model etc.) and help develop the Miden node and the Miden VM. You will work on cutting-edge technology, use advanced tools and modern programming languages, and learn about zero-knowledge proving systems.
Read about the Miden VM in docs.miden.io.

Key Duties

    • Design and implement the Miden rollup, the sequencer and the client.
    • Maintain and improve core components of the Miden VM.
    • Provide technical guidance and mentorship to members of the team.

What You Need To Succeed

    • Expertise in Ethereum, rollup protocols and trade-offs, and attack vectors.
    • Deep familiarity with Rust, including a high comfort level with advanced concepts such as generics, lifetimes, memory management, concurrency etc.
    • Familiarity with advanced benchmarking and testing frameworks (prop-testing, fuzzing).
    • Experience working on open-ended problems without supervision.
    • Proven ability to teach and mentor less experienced team members.


    • Interested in zero knowledge proof-based blockchain systems.
    • Familiar with writing smart contracts, especially Solidity.
    • Familiar with the fundamentals of cryptography, e.g., hash functions and finite fields.Passionate about open-source software and eager to learn.
    • Passionate about privacy.
