L3A is seeking a Consensus Algorithm Expert with ZK background to conduct a thorough competitive analysis on oracle services and decentralized price feeds. The expert should look at the current landscape of external price feeds and external data connected to smart contracts and validate the kind of consensus mechanisms and incentive mechanisms each uses along with others in the below list of responsibilities.
Conduct thorough competitor analysis on all oracle services and decentralized price feeds
Evaluate the oracle projects that exist regarding conducting data verification and validation
Evaluate the oracle projects that exist regarding how they keep their methods decentralized
Evaluate the oracle projects that exist regarding their consensus mechanisms, frameworks, and methodologies to maintain decentralization
Evaluate the oracle projects that exist regarding incentive mechanisms to learn more about how participant behavior is influenced by the incentive mechanisms set out to ensure the right behavior is maintained across the participants in the ecosystem e.g., Chainlink where if you provide the right price feed, you are incentivized with Chainlink token
Evaluate the oracle projects that exist about how they keep the integrity, sustainability, viability, and longevity of the ecosystem
Evaluate the oracle projects that exist about how they make sure that they have no single point of failure
Evaluate the oracle projects that exist regarding how they conduct data verification and validation without having a middleman
Review and recommend cryptography, blockchain, and consensus algorithm tools, products, and services
Research and implement distributed ledger technologies such as blockchain to create a secure and transparent data storage and management system for L3A.
Design and implement a consensus algorithm for the validation and publishing of the data received from centralized and decentralized sources such as financial market exchanges.
Collaborate with other members of the technical team to gather and analyze requirements, and translate them into consensus algorithms, blockchain, and cryptography solutions.
Stay current with new developments in blockchain technology, cryptography, and consensus algorithms and incorporate them into the project solutions as appropriate.
Monitor and troubleshoot security-related issues related to cryptography, blockchain, and consensus algorithms.
Ensure compliance with relevant industry standards and regulations such as soc 2, pci-dss, hipaa, and gdpr
create documentation and technical specifications for the cryptographic, blockchain, and consensus algorithm solutions.
Collaborate with other teams to provide technical guidance and mentorship to other members of the team.
Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field.
At least 8+ years of experience in cryptography, blockchain engineering, consensus algorithms, or a related field.
Strong experience with cryptography protocols and technologies such as aes, rsa, ecc, and ssl/tls.
Strong experience with blockchain technologies such as Ethereum, Bitcoin, and Hyperledger.
Strong understanding of blockchain security best practices, industry standards, and regulatory compliance.
Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
Strong experience with monitoring and troubleshooting security issues related to cryptography, blockchain, and consensus algorithms.
Experience with creating technical documentation, including technical specifications and standard operating procedures.
Certifications in cryptography, blockchain, or consensus algorithm-related fields (ccsp, cism, cisa, ceh, etc.)
Challenging yourself and solid career advancement.
Be at the forefront of an exponentially growing industry with cutting-edge technology.
Build a professional network and meet like-minded people.
Competitive salaries, bonuses, and other financial incentives.
About L3A Protocol is an all-in-one decentralized data infrastructure for web3 designed to collect, cryptographically store, process, and stream data for free to anyone from anywhere. It stores billions of the world's crypto and Web 3.0 data points, transactions, and historical records, allowing anyone to access data without any intervention, interference, or influence over regulations, governments, and corporations, including the creators themselves. We recognize that data and information are among the most valuable commodities in the world and that without quality, reliable data, the internet, and all related technologies would cease to function. The problem of centralized data control and surveillance capitalism that plagues the current internet landscape has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. With a concentration of power in the hands of a select few large data players, the control and manipulation of information have led to a host of societal issues, including information asymmetry, political polarization, and corruption. Mission & why join L3A Protocol's mission is to address the information asymmetry in Web 3.0 by democratizing data. By using cryptographic principles, distributed ledger technologies, and modern decentralized data architecture, L3A Protocol aims to create a petabyte-scale, immutable data infrastructure that is open and accessible to everyone. We firmly believe that access to reliable, unedited information is a fundamental right and an essential aspect of a free and democratic society. Furthermore, we understand L3A Protocol's mission is to address the information asymmetry in Web 3.0 by democratizing data. By using cryptographic principles, distributed ledger technologies, and modern decentralized data architecture, L3A Protocol aims to create a petabyte-scale, immutable data infrastructure that is open and accessible to everyone. The core principles of the L3A Protocol are designed to ensure no single authority can alter the data, control the distribution of information, or influence who can access it. Our infrastructure and entire technology stack are open-source, governed by an open-source community, ensuring that the data remains unaltered and accessible to all. Our team is made up of experts in various fields who are passionate about building a better future. If you want to join a team of ambitious, driven, and forward-thinking individuals, then L3A Protocol is the right place for you. We are looking for individuals who are not afraid of challenges and who want to be part of something big. Joining the L3A Protocol team offers a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of shaping the future of data infrastructure. Our goal is to give individuals and organizations control over their data without interference from outside forces. This means that data is freely accessible and tamper-proof.
