Fully Remote

Taiko Labs is at the forefront of blockchain innovation, developing the Taiko ZK-EVM, a Layer 2 solution that scales Ethereum by faithfully emulating its technical and non-technical characteristics. Our solution, an Ethereum-equivalent (Type 1) ZK-EVM, enhances the performance of Ethereum by supporting all EVM opcodes within a decentralized, permission-less, and secure Layer 2/3 framework.

Our team is rooted in a firm belief in the power and potential of zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs). Comprising seasoned professionals who have been utilizing ZKPs since 2018, our team has the distinction of having built the first ZK-Rollup on Ethereum. As we continue to push boundaries and innovate, we are eager to augment our team with talented, driven individuals who align with our vision and are ready to make a significant contribution to the blockchain landscape.

We are looking for a Researcher & Writer to join our team with the goal of researching the ZK-EVM and broader Ethereum ecosystem and writing material which can inform the team, builders, and the community as a whole. This role will perform research that Taiko can incorporate into its development roadmap, as well as help communicate our technology and progress to the community. You will work across the engineering and community teams.

About the role

  • Perform research on topics ranging from ZKPs, based rollups, decentralized prover & proposer designs, EIPs, and any meaningful topic relevant to ZK-EVMs → see our blog posts to get an idea of the depth and breadth of our content.

  • Create content aimed at educating and onboarding developer communities and new users to Taiko

  • Support the broader team in (technical) assessments of grant applications and ongoing grant support

About you

  • Strong understanding of Ethereum, the EVM, (based) rollups, ZKPs, and related technical domains

  • A background in research and/or technical writing

  • Comfortable engaging with developer communities on Twitter, Discord, and Ethereum research forums.

  • Highly curious and always learning, with a pro-active attitude to work

  • A deep sense of ownership in your work, motivated by sharing knowledge with others

What would set you apart

  • An established reputation within the crypto and Ethereum community for your technical research and writing

  • An expansive portfolio of content you have produced (blog posts, forum/research posts, twitter threads, video, etc.)

  • A strong presence and following on social media channels


The role is remote, offers competitive compensation (cash + equity), and an opportunity to help scale Ethereum - a technology and ecosystem that is changing the world.
