About Status

Status strives to develop open source software that can be used as a secure communication tool that upholds human rights. We are building the tools and infrastructure for the advancement of a secure, private, and open web3.

With the high level goals of preserving the right to privacy, mitigating the risk of censorship, and promoting economic trade in a transparent, open manner, Status is building a community where anyone is welcome to join and contribute.

As an organization, Status seeks to push the web3 ecosystem forward through research, creation of developer tools, and support of the open source community.

As a product, Status is an open source, Ethereum-based app that gives users the power to chat, transact, and access a revolutionary world of DApps on the decentralized web. But Status is also building foundational infrastructure for the whole Ethereum ecosystem, including the Nimbus ETH 1.0 and 2.0 clients, the Keycard hardware wallet, and the Waku messaging protocol (a continuation of Whisper).

As a team, Status has been completely distributed since inception. Our team is currently 150+ core contributors strong, and welcomes a growing number of community members from all walks of life, scattered all around the globe.

We care deeply about open source, and our organizational structure has minimal hierarchy and no fixed work hours. We believe in working with a high degree of autonomy while supporting the organization's priorities.

The Position

Key Responsibilities

  • Automation of infrastructure deployment, configuration, and scaling
  • Maintenance of monitoring, logging, and backup systems
  • Development of continuous integration platforms and scripts
  • Ensuring security of hosts and other online resources
  • Daily monitoring of all services and responding to breakage and security incidents
  • Maintaining a written knowledge base regarding all practices and processes followed by the team, including step-by-step guides, check lists, trouble-shooting tips and other resources
  • Improving the observability of the Nimbus software by implementing additional metrics and tuning the logging output
  • Detailed reporting of all encountered issues to the Nimbus development team


Don’t worry if you don’t meet all of these criteria, we’d still love to hear from you anyway if you think you’d be a great fit for this role. Just explain to us why in your cover letter

You ideally will have

  • Experience or interest in Ethereum and/or the ecosystem
  • Openness to learning & using new programming languages, e.g. Nim
  • Experience with configuration management software such as Ansible, Puppet, Chef and cfEngine, etc.
  • Experience or/and interest in working in a bare metal environment with experience with bare metal automation tooling such as Canonical MaaS, TinkerBell and OpenStack Ironic
  • High proficiency with Linux operating systems (Ubuntu/Debian), REST API’s, Docker, and ZFS
  • Prior experience as a programmer/engineer using low-level languages (C, C++, etc.)
  • Experience in, and passion for, blockchain technology.
  • A strong alignment to our principles.

Bonus points if

  • Experience with Nim
  • Ability and willingness to work with a little bit of research: will be among other things to get information directly from the open-source blockchain code and deal with cases where no documentation is provided
  • Experience with running different Ethereum nodes (Geth, OpenEthereum, Erigon, etc)
  • Experience with running ETH2.0 validator and beacon chain nodes (Lighthouse, Prysm, Teku, etc)
  • Deep understanding and expertise on the technical level of the ETH2 protocol (such as validation, slashing, network edge cases).
