About us

Flashbots started in 2020 as a research and development organization formed to mitigate the negative externalities and existential risks posed by Maximal Extractable Value (MEV). Since then, we have had an immense impact on the world of crypto through mev-geth, Flashbots Protect, MEV-Boost, MEV-Share, our open research and soon-to-be SUAVE.

Our mission is clear: illuminate, democratize and distribute.

We seek to ensure that the value created on decentralized, public blockchains is transparent and distributed. We do this by conducting cutting-edge research, building mission-critical products, and coordinating a diverse community with competing interests.

Our vibe is irreverent, anarchic, excellent, autonomous. We’re explorers, hackers, builders, thinkers. We are relaxed, composed, and at ease in the world, but beneath our suave exterior, we do not have the time or inclination to be anything but the best.

About the role:

We're looking for a passionate open-source leader and maintainer for our block building efforts. As a part of that, you'll be the leader responsible for open-source efforts on our state of the art Rust block builder for Ethereum L1 and L2s. This role is pivotal, acting as a linchpin between various communities and working to leverage their unique expertise for the development of MEV public goods. Moreover, this role acts as the bridge between those communities and our internal team. If you thrive in a fast-paced environment, love engaging with developers, and are excited about the potential of open-source, this role is for you.

What You’ll Do:

  • Define and drive a strategy around cultivating a community of contributors

  • Act as a liaison between our community and internal team, expressing their needs and advocating for them

  • Engage with users online

  • Develop and maintain content for the codebase

  • Champion the developer experience and needs of open-source contributors

Who You Are:

  • Strong experience with Rust

  • Strong experience with open-source software

  • Strong communication skills, particularly technical writing

  • Experience in growing communities

  • Experience with Ethereum

Nice-to-haves

  • MEV experience

  • Social media presence and experience

  • Trading experience

  • Experience creating some kind of competition with fast feedback loops


Details that matter

  • Significantly above market rate equity compensation package

  • Unlimited PTO with a high level of freedom and autonomy for your work

  • Attractive health coverage package for US employees

  • $3000 Yearly budget for your individual learning and development goals

  • Work alongside the brightest minds in the crypto space

  • Help save the world by ensuring crypto remains decentralized, permissionless and censorship-resistant

  • Remote working - work from anywhere in the world

  • Paid travel - 2 x team on-site in different parts of the world per year plus periodic travel to events

At Flashbots, we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive team. We welcome applications from all qualified candidates regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, or disability status.
