About TQ Tezos (Tocqueville Group)
TQ is a New York-based blockchain technology company advancing the Tezos project. In close collaboration with global teams,TQ builds products on Tezos and developer tools to help other teams all around the world do so. TQ also helps startups and enterprises adopt Tezos for a variety of exciting use cases, facilitating the growth of a robust, high-functioning Tezos ecosystem.

About the Role

TQ Tezos is seeking skilled computer security professionals to perform security audits of software and hardware developed for the Tezos ecosystem and to give security advice to entities operating within it.

This is an ideal position for those with an offensive security mindset, strong programming skills, and a history of finding and mitigating exploits. Code in the Tezos ecosystem is written in a variety of languages, including OCaml, Rust, JavaScript, and the Michelson smart contract language. We also have the occasional need to audit the security of hardware tokens, HSMs, and similar equipment. Some systems in the Tezos ecosystem are formally verified, and opportunities are available to work with verification tools, as well as to attempt to bypass verification by seeking out exploitable properties that have not been formally proven correct in otherwise verified systems.

The wide scope of tasks offers a variety of complex scenarios and systems for an enquiring mind. We believe this position will be exceptionally interesting for qualified candidates. We do not expect that any single candidate will have all, or even necessarily most, of the background required. However, we do expect that qualified candidates will have a strong computer science background, a strong background in computer security, a history of successfully attacking real systems, and a willingness to rapidly learn new technologies.

Desired Skills:

  • A strong background in computer science is required; electrical engineering skills are a plus but not expected.
  • You need a strong background in programming and you need to truly understand systems from the bottom up. If you enjoy delving into the assembly language output of your compiler, or deciphering network packets, this position may be for you.
  • Strong computer security background; you should have broken systems in the past, and equally importantly, you should have a strong understanding of how to create systems that are hard to break. Audit experience a significant plus.
  • Knowledge of financial systems security or blockchain security is a serious plus, and a general interest in blockchain technology is a serious plus.
  • A background in strongly typed functional languages is a strong plus but not required; you will need to gain a working knowledge of them.
  • A background in formal methods would be nice but is not required.
We offer:
  • Flexible work environment
  • Competitive compensation
  • Full benefits
  • Unlimited paid time off
  • 401k matching
