Senior Protocol Engineer

Saga's mission is to give developers what they need to build the next 1000 chains in the multichain metaverse, or multiverse.

We are a protocol for automatically provisioning application-specific blockchains in the multiverse. We are rearchitecting developer and end-user interactions with blockchains. Using shared security, innovations in validator orchestration, and an automated CI/CD deployment pipeline standardized across apps in single-tenant VMs, Saga makes launching a dedicated blockchain, or chainlet, as easy as deploying a smart contract.

Saga’s initial focus will be on gaming and entertainment chains. As the metaverse expands, performance requirements and end-user expectations are climbing higher and higher, and crypto-based applications must deliver. 

Our vision is ambitious, and we need the smartest and most determined engineers to join us on our journey. We are a world-class team of veteran web3 entrepreneurs and builders from Ignite (Tendermint), Apple, Twitter, NVIDIA, and Skuchain, and we’re looking to grow.

We offer a flexible, remote working environment. You can expect a warm welcome from a friendly and international team that will support you in your personal and professional growth. This is an exciting opportunity to take an active part in the blockchain space and contribute to the decentralization of the future.
