We at Aurora Labs are looking to hire a Rust Developer to work on our EVM. This is a full-time position that can be done remotely anywhere in the world.

Aurora builds an Ethereum-compatible network with increased scaling and lower transactions costs.

Your main responsibilities will be to develop new features and provide support on the Aurora engine. Notably, keeping up to date with Ethereum improvements as well as quality improvements on the performance of the engine.

Aurora Labs labs have created the Aurora Ecosystem which mainly consists of two components: Rainbow Bridge and Aurora Engine. Rainbow Bridge is a fully trustless and decentralized bridge that interconnects Ethereum and NEAR ecosystems. Aurora Engine is an EVM built on the NEAR Protocol, delivering a turn-key solution for developers to operate their apps on an Ethereum-compatible, high-throughput, scalable and future-safe platform, with low transaction costs for their users.

If you are eager to dive into the competing cross-chain ecosystem and would like to work in an energetic environment, surrounded by highly productive and meticulous engineers, we would be happy to see you in Aurora labs!
