Planetary is looking to hire a full-time developer to work on open source decentralized social media protocols. Planetary uses and contributes development to the secure scuttlebutt and is working with Twitter's new Bluesky to build a new decentralized social media protocol.

We're looking for developers who care about changing the world, building a future where a single company doesn't control our data, where governments and advertisers can't read our every message.

Planetary is a fully remote company with people in California, Spain, Uruguay, and New Zealand.

Requirements

  • Lead development on planetary's golang secure scuttlebutt engine.
  • Assist in gathering requirements, designing solutions, and building decentralized protocols.
  • Develop working software, with an eye towards security and usability
  • Research and contribute to existing protocols and standards

You might be a good fit if you have:

  • Expertise in one or more relevant fields: applied cryptography, user authentication and authorization standards, open messaging protocols, decentralized networks
  • Great verbal and written communication skills
  • Experience developing open source software
  • Experience working on small teams with a bias towards action
  • Experience working remotely
  • Enthusiasm for learning and trying new things
  • Understand blockchain but don't believe it's a universal solution.
  • Have experience developing with / for scuttlebutt, dat, gun, ipfs, matrix, ceramic, holochain, mim, and solid.

Benefits

We're a funded company doing open source development of a decentralized future that puts communities in control of their digital spaces. We provide competitive salaries to developers located anywhere. This is a full time position.
