Swarm is a system of peer-to-peer networked nodes that create a decentralised storage and communication service. The system is economically self-sustaining due to a built-in incentive system enforced through smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain.
Swarm aspires to shape the future towards a self-sovereign global society and permissionless open markets. On Swarm, applications can run autonomously yet securely in a planetary-scale deployment and execution environment.
The Swarm Research Team is tasked with rigorously spelling out and analysing Swarm’s underlying theory as well as the current implementation. We create theories, write code, run experiments and make concrete suggestions to Swarm’s engineering teams for further improvements. Our work is consumed by various Swarm teams, as well as the wider (research) community.
We are looking for a profile that can help increase the understanding of Swarm and improve communication of what Swarm is by clearly articulating all of our assumptions and choices and making models to communicate, refine and challenge these.
We are looking for an all-round technical profile to help the research team with various tasks such as:
Scraping metrics and data from the real Swarm network
Implementing custom metrics in the Bee source code
Creating modified Bee nodes
Creating Swarm clusters and running test scenarios on them to validate theories
Analysing and presenting any data gathered
Extensive mentoring will be provided. From this position, you will be able to grow your career in several directions.
Key technologies are: Golang, Kubernetes, Grafana
To have a very thorough understanding of how Swarm behaves, while simultaneously elevating everybody else’s understanding
To help the research team’s ideation process by running custom experiments with the Bee node in Swarm clusters
To increase the quality of the research team’s proposals by backing them up with data
To shorten the idea-validation cycle by creating proof-of-concepts
