    Zama’s mission is to bring end-to-end encryption to AI. Using their homomorphic development framework, companies can process their customer’s data without seeing it, thereby preventing data breaches and surveillance.

    Zama’s solution is based on a breakthrough in homomorphic encryption, which enables doing data science and machine learning on encrypted data. Zama is open-source by design, as they believe privacy-enabling technologies should benefit the widest possible community of developers and researchers.

    Zama’s cofounders are Dr Pascal Paillier, one of the most renowned cryptography researchers, and Dr Rand Hindi, a serial entrepreneur who formerly founded Snips.

    Job description

    Your team is writing and maintaining a cryptographic library in Rust. You will contribute in making it fast and easy to use. This library is indeed intended for growing with new cryptographic algorithms, new hardware implementations, etc. Your main tasks would be to:

    • write high performance code in Rust
    • design an efficient and user friendly API for a cryptographic library
    • improve existing Rust code to make it faster (SIMD, parallelisation)
    • write the benchmarking and correctness tests expected from a major cryptographic library
    • coommunicate with cryptographers that are part of your team

    Preferred experience

    The knowledge or Rust is not mandatory for the job, but you should verify the following:

    • solid experience with one or many of (Ocaml/Haskell/Scala/C++/C), and a strong interest for Rust
    • into open sourcing
    • into contributing to the Rust community
    • willing to discover cryptography
    • communication skills
    • full remote is possible, but you should be in a european timezone
