Senior System Engineer (Rust) – Slang

Website Nomic Foundation

Empowering developers to decentralize the world

About the job
The Nomic Foundation is a non-profit behind Hardhat, the most widely used Ethereum development environment. We’re dedicated to building open-source infrastructure and tools that empower Ethereum developers to decentralize the world while fostering growth and innovation in the developer ecosystem.


We are looking for a Senior Engineer with extensive experience working with low-level systems software and a passion for compilers or dev tooling to join our team responsible for Slang, our compiler project.


Slang is a modular set of compiler APIs empowering the next generation of Solidity code analysis and developer tooling. Written in Rust and distributed in multiple languages. We just released a version-stable parser, and we are looking into semantic analysis and error recovery next. We are a small team (2 people currently), but we have ambitious plans about Slang and the future of Solidity developer experience.


This is a fully-remote role, and we’re open to candidates applying within UTC+1 to UTC-5 timezones.


In this role, you will be:

Designing and implementing features in the compiler, language specification, and testing infrastructure.
Writing up user facing documentation and tutorials on how to use Slang.
Providing code reviews and assistance to other engineers on the team.
Investigating bug reports and responding to user feedback on GitHub and Telegram.


Tech stack:

Node.js / N-API
Ethereum / EVM


The skills we look for:

At least 5 years of experience working on systems software
2+ years of working with Rust
Knowledge and experience with Node.js
We work remotely and mostly asynchronously, so the ability to take ownership and work with minimal direction is crucial
As this is an early-stage project, we are seeking a teammate who is comfortable adapting to changing requirements
Prior experience working in a remote and globally-distributed environment
Experience in leading projects & mentoring other team members


Why is this an exciting opportunity?

You’ll have a chance to work on a core component of the Ethereum stack and support the entire Ethereum ecosystem to be more productive
Contribute to Ethereum as a project
Service the needs of high-profile projects that use Hardhat
All of your work will be open-source, and you’ll have the chance to collaborate with other open-source projects (both inside and outside Ethereum)
