The majority of cryptocurrencies sit idle on exchanges and in wallets, yielding no interest. At Compound, we’ve created interest rate markets to unlock the value of these assets, empowering investors with new opportunities to profit. Compound is a decentralized money market protocol for borrowing and lending assets.
We’re building an open, transparent, frictionless protocol using smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. Our goal: to create financial infrastructure that is used for the next hundred years.
As a Senior Security Engineer at Compound, you will own many aspects of security and projects related to the security of the Compound Protocol from idea through implementation with the support of a small team, helping define the future of Compound’s security engineering organization. You will work as both red and blue teams in infrastructure (dev ops, network planning, IDS), application security (Kubernetes, containers, Linux), and protocol security (smart contracts, Solidity). You will be part of a team which builds services and platform tools with security issues in mind. You will have a deep understanding of security vulnerabilities, analyze, identify and communicate new and future risks. You will help expand an incident response plan with a focus on security.
