Our Mission

Sunscreen is building the privacy engine of the new web. We're bringing private computation to all by making advanced cryptography (i.e. fully homomorphic encryption and zero-knowledge proofs) easy to use.

What you'll accomplish your 1st year here

You'll help build the core infrastructure of a new cryptographic system (alongside a cryptographer!) πŸ› β€‹
You’ll implement cryptographic primitives (including zero-knowledge proofs and fully homomorphic encryption) and write robust, security-first code that will run in high-risk, adversarial environments
You'll become familiar with the latest advances in cryptography and determine their applicability to Sunscreen’s system
You'll have opportunities to present your work at conferences πŸ‘β€‹


Believe everyone has the right to privacy πŸ”’β€‹
Think technology should be frictionless (documentation is important to you!)
Have significant experience implementing cryptographic primitives (ideally efficient zero-knowledge proof systems) in a performant and modular way
Are comfortable working with multiple programming languages
Are excited to get your hands dirty learning new math and cryptography (with help of course!) βœοΈβ€‹
Look forward to collaborating with others
Have excellent communication skills and the ability to explain complex technical issues to a non-technical audience

We offer...

A highly flexible, remote-first working environment πŸŒŽβ€‹
Competitive compensation + significant equity πŸ€‘β€‹
Unlimited PTO (we encourage you to take off at least 3 weeks/year)
Homecomings where we gather in one spot to meet each other and work together
Annual health and wellness budget πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈβ€‹
Personal development budget πŸ•Ίβ€‹
Medical/dental/vision insurance
401k plan + match
1:1 charity donation match
Opportunity to travel to and present at conferences if desired (we hope you do!) βœˆοΈβ€‹

About Us

We're currently a team of 5.
We like exploring new parks (one of us has a golden retriever), grabbing a coffee to read with a good book (preferably non-fiction), playing tennis, and volunteering in our free time!
