Mysten Labs believes that decentralized and open protocols are the bedrock of the internet of value. This is why at Mysten Labs, we are creating foundational infrastructure to accelerate the adoption of decentralized protocols based on blockchain technologies.

We are hiring a Software Engineer, Security as we approach our testnet and mainnet launches later this year.

  • Be part of advancing the security state of the art for the Sui ecosystem.
  • Develop frameworks, components, and tooling that Mysten engineers and Sui builders leverage to produce secure code
  • Review and assist with remediating vulnerability reports
  • Serve as the point of contact for engagements with audit firms
  • Partner cross-functionally to assess and mitigate threats

Our Ideal Candidate Would Have:

  • 5+ years experience in security engineering, penetration testing, or related disciplines
  • Experience with distributed systems security
  • Experience with smart contract security
  • Experience with threat modeling and architecture review
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

Our team is 100% remote and we are hiring across the world. Here at Mysten Labs, you’ll be joining a world class team with tremendous growth potential.
