Distributed Systems Software Engineer Lead
Intel Trust Platform is built on a distributed ledger service that provides programmatic execution engines for Key-Value Stores, SQL-like databases, and the Ethereum Virtual Machine. It is highly reliable, secure, and features a Byzantine fault-tolerant state machine replication system capable of withstanding malicious attacks while maintaining high transaction performance.
This role offers a great opportunity to have a real impact by working on cutting-edge confidential computing concepts and distributed systems based on Byzantine fault tolerance. Bring your technical experience and ideas to innovate and drive solutions, focusing on consensus mechanisms, specializing in resilience strategies, and contributing to the design of a highly reliable and secure distributed system that can withstand malicious attacks while ensuring data integrity and verifiability in challenging environments.If you are passionate about working in a dynamic environment and are excited about technology, consider joining our innovative team to build the industry's first Byzantine fault-tolerant system based on SBFT. Our team has a start-up, collaborative, and open culture. We value diversity, having a growth-mindset, and inclusiveness. We are remote friendly and geo-distributed.
Provide technical leadership in building components for the Core Byzantine Fault-Tolerant Ledger service of the Intel Trust Platform (ITP).
Apply technical knowledge and expertise to architect, design, and implement scalable and efficient distributed systems that meet the performance and reliability requirements.
Propose and deliver software designs, architecture, and technical specifications. Prepare clear and concise documentation for both technical and non-technical stakeholders.
Drive prototypes and proof-of-concept implementations to validate distributed systems concepts and technologies.
Be an expert in assessing performance and optimizing/improving it through design and best coding practices, ensuring high throughput, low latency, and fault tolerance.
Maintain code quality and offer enhancements to testing strategies for sustaining the reliability, security, and scalability of distributed systems.
