Full-time
Background 
Our mission at Discreet Labs is to make privacy more programmable through adoption of applied cryptography, and decentralized blockchain technology.

Discreet Labs is the developer of Findora, a public blockchain with programmable privacy. The original research team behind Findora also invented Bulletproofs, a type of zero-knowledge proofs that have been widely used across different blockchains such as Monero, Mimblewimble, and Grin. The company has implemented Bulletproofs on Findora to support confidential transactions, and private asset issuance. Discreet Labs is also working on additional zero-knowledge proofs to support confidential smart contracts for more programmable privacy.

Discreet Labs is backed by Polychain and Powerscale Capital, and is partnered with dozens of companies and organizations including Tencent, BSN, MetisDAO, Taxa, Bank of Asia, Travel USA Express, MoneyMoov, IOTPay, YouWorld, Citcon, and Bayes.

We have offices in Palo Alto, CA and Beijing, China, plus we have the platform tools and benefits to support you in your remote work environment.

This position will be based in one of the Asia time zones, with occasional travel to North America. Strong written and spoken language proficiency in both English and Mandarin is required.

Overview
The partner engineering team at Discreet Labs works cross-functionally with a talented team of engineers, architects, researchers, designers, product managers, operators, and business developers to help partners achieve success by integrating Findora into their apps and platforms.

You will own the partner engineering function for third-party integrations of the core Findora blockchain protocol network software. You are the technical leader on all integration discussions, responsible for supporting and managing integration partners as a member of a small, inclusive, and multi-functional team. For partners you act as a trusted sparring partner helping them from building their business case, managing the integration, to finalizing the rollout of their Findora integration. As a partner-facing member of the team, you will own the integration experience by developing helpful guides, designing architectural solutions, writing scripts, and supporting key partners as they work to integrate Findora into their business operations. You will work closely with our VP of Engineering, VP of Product, Head of Growth, and Head of Project Management to help take the protocol from a beta blockchain network to a reliable, scalable, and programmable privacy platform driving the next phase in smart contract growth on the blockchain.
