About Project

It’s so nice to meet you!

We’re Interchain GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Interchain Foundation.

As maintainers of the Tendermint project, lead architects of the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) Protocol, and contributors to the Cosmos SDK, we envision a more connected, open, and self-sovereign world made possible through the Cosmos Network.

We were formerly employees of All In Bits (d.b.a Tendermint Inc), but we’ve branched out as Interchain GmbH in order to create a space where, as engineers and protocol architects, we can focus on core technologies.
We’ll continue to collaborate with our friends and colleagues at All In Bits and elsewhere in the Cosmos ecosystem.

Onwards and upwards! 🚀

    Berlin or Remote, ideally between UTC-5:00 & UTC+3:00

    We are seeking a technical candidate familiar with decentralized technologies to aid in the evaluation of projects supported by the ICF Funding Program. This role will include responsibilities to develop contracts with program participants, review applications for ICF funding, and evaluate deliverables upon completion.

    In addition to technical review of applications and ongoing coordination with teams, a core responsibility of the role will be reviewing the codebase of project deliverables. The software funded by the ICF is written in a variety of languages and frameworks, including Go, Rust, and JavaScript. Proper evaluation will require gaining an understanding of Tendermint, IBC, Cosmos SDK, CosmWasm, Ethermint, cosmJS, and other related technologies.

    Please see the ICF Funding Program repository to learn more about our review process and past recipients.

    As IBC engineering lead, you’ll be responsible for setting a development roadmap in collaboration with the research team, managing engineering efforts to implement new protocol features, extensions, and improvements, heading stewardship of the x/ibc subsection of the Cosmos SDK repository, and occasionally contributing to various parts of the Cosmos stack (such as the SDK & Gaia) as necessary to support IBC.

    So far, our engineering team has led the development and stewardship of the Tendermint Core consensus engine and the Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol (IBC).
    IBC is an open-source protocol for end-to-end communication between heterogeneous distributed ledgers — in many ways analogous to TCP/IP, an open-source protocol for end-to-end communication between heterogeneous machines.
    As IBC reaches the 1.0 release milestone and moves into production on the Cosmos Hub, we’re looking for an engineering lead to spearhead the next phase of IBC development for the Cosmos ecosystem and beyond.

    Interchain GmbH is a 13-person company that works on core blockchain technology. We are based in Berlin, but our team stretches from New York City to Ulyanovsk, Russia. Tendermint Core engineers are responsible for building and maintaining Tendermint Core.

    One of our responsibilities is Tendermint Core, a Byzantine Fault Tolerant consensus engine that powers a number of projects both inside and outside the blockchain space, including the Cosmos Network.
    All in all, Tendermint Core secures billions of dollars of value across many different systems.
    But we don’t take ourselves too seriously: We strive to build great software while having a lot of laughs along the way.

    Tendermint Core engineers are responsible for building and maintaining Tendermint Core.

    One of our company’s responsibilities is improving developer relations within the Cosmos Network and the wider IBC connected Internet of Blockchains. We are pretty flexible with the definition of “developer relations” and generally think of it as anything that improves a new developer’s understanding of the admittedly complicated world of blockchains. Generally this takes the form of tutorials, blog posts, workshops, presentations, documentation and supporting users in our community channels. We’re looking for someone who can get creative with ways to reach our audience of builders and who can take initiative on more adventurous ideas, whether they be proof-of-concept applications or anything that sparks interest and curiosity in our products.

    One of our company’s responsibilities is improving developer relations within the Cosmos Network and the wider IBC connected Internet of Blockchains.
    We are pretty flexible with the definition of “developer relations” and generally think of it as anything that improves a new developer’s understanding of the admittedly complicated world of blockchains.

    We’re looking for someone who can get creative with ways to reach our audience of builders and who can take initiative on more adventurous ideas, whether they be proof-of-concept applications or anything that sparks interest and curiosity in our products.
    The Cosmos ecosystem also includes a number of ambitious teams who push our software to its limits.

    Because we are a small company, our employees sometimes wear more than one hat.
    The Developer Relations department currently consists of two people who double as the Grants and Funding department.
    They help evaluate funding proposals for the Interchain Foundation, a Swiss non-profit dedicated to supporting the research and creation of secure decentralized technology and the networks that deploy it like Cosmos.

    While the Cosmos ecosystem touches on many projects and technologies that enrich the vision of an Internet of Blockchains, there are some core products that we are especially dedicated to supporting. The three main ones are:

    • Cosmos SDK
      • Our flagship blockchain development framework built in Golang that allows complete control of your blockchain from the ground up
      • It is a modular framework like Ruby-on-Rails that allows you to import a variety of features from external sources
    • Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC)
      • TCP-IP for blockchains, a protocol for communication between independent consensus state machines, gluing together the Internet of Blockchains
    • Tendermint Core
      • The gold standard for BFT consensus and Proof of Stake
