  • Knowledge of industry-standard security practices for DeFi protocols
  • Experience with technologies such as Solidity, Ethers.js, Hardhat, OpenZeppelin, and GraphQL. Familiarity with Circom is a plus.
  • Ability to work extended hours when necessary – preferably with startup experience


  • Collaborating with the co-founder and CTO to write core smart contracts for Hinkal Protocol
  • Writing production-quality smart contracts, unit tests, and deployment scripts
  • Following best practices in security and standards
  • Familiarity with swapping, staking, and liquidity farming contracts.

The team offers new hires competitive compensation in USD and token incentives. In addition to being a part of a cutting-edge technology team, you will have the opportunity to work on groundbreaking projects and significantly impact the industry.

It’s the in-person position in Menlo Park, the heart of Silicon Valley.
