About the Company:

Worldcoin is a new, collectively owned global currency that will be distributed fairly to as many people as possible. Worldcoin will launch by giving a free share to everyone on Earth. We believe that this is an essential step to accelerate the transition towards a more inclusive global economy, providing new ways for everyone to share future prosperity. We hope you’ll join us on our ambitious journey.

About the IoT Team:

The IoT team plays an integral part in building a novel IoT device to solve the “unique human” problem that has foiled previous attempts at a fair cryptocurrency launch. The device will be able to biometrically verify newcomers to the network under adversarial conditions, while simultaneously preserving privacy in an auditable manner. We are growing rapidly to meet our launch goals in 2022!

We are a highly cross-functional team whose responsibility is to design and implement all the software related aspects of the IoT devices, including off device software such as backend infrastructure or manufacturing testing procedures. We are at the core of the company with close collaboration to nearly all departments.

About the Opportunity:

We are looking for Embedded Linux Engineers to help us find efficient means of using the device’s limited resources to run Worldcoin’s software. We are running multiple complex and resource-intensive operations on our IoT devices such as running multiple AI algorithms in parallel or live image processing. Successfully getting our software running at scale requires many challenging engineering problems to be solved.

In addition to the on-device software work, you will also help build related technology, such as CI/CD tools or development scripts for the other teams.

In this role you will:

  • Work on building the Linux image used on the device 
  • Implement the part of the software tooling that other teams will use.
  • Collaborate closely with our security team to ensure that our software is running in a secure environment
  • Work on automating the IoT software deployment
  • Collaborate with the AI team to help optimize the on-device inferences

About You:

  • Deep knowledge of Linux, Rust (and optionally Python)
  • Experienced with embedded devices, including commercially-used IoT devices
  • Familiar with CI/CD best practices
  • Good understanding of security, including key Linux security principles, and how it relates to firmware development
  • Optionally, knowledge of AI and GPU accelerated inference
