We've just launched the first alpha of Status, a mobile web3 browser, messenger and gateway to a decentralised world of the Ethereum blockchain.
Status is built using re-natal + re-frame + cljs + golang and is completely open source.
We're looking to hire core contributors who are interested in Smart Contracts, Crypto-currencies and are fluent in Lisp-dialects, and can offer a competitive salary. Experience with ClojureScript and re-frame is ideal.
Yet another Messenger?
Actually no, Status is a decentralised, peer-to-peer app. Its communication protocol uses an Ethereum sub-protocol called SHH/Whisper (not to be confused with Signal) which is an identity-based encrypted messaging protocol with dark routing. You can learn more about it in this presentation.
We're building an agnostic platform; akin to an open source version of WeChat. Thanks to Ethereum, there's a whole new ecosystem of applications being developed that are completely decentralised, and Status aims to provide a user interface to access them. These applications remove the need for middlemen and centralised servers, providing a clear path forward towards an internet where users get to own their own data, and an economy built on open protocols.
What's that about a browser?
In Ethereum (and Status) - there is a concept called 'web3', files are stored using SWARM (a kademlia-like decentralised file storage solution) and 'server-side logic' is done using Smart Contracts and on the blockchain. This allows us to create trust-less, censorship resistant systems.
You will be able to work remotely and salaries competitive. We have a great team of 7, looking forward to you joining us and finally (> pull-requests CVs) :)
