\nAs stewards of the Polkadot and Substrate ecosystem, Parity is laying the foundation for a better web which respects the freedom and data of individuals and empowers developers to create better services through decentralised technology. The internet is too important to billions of people for it to be at the mercy of a few powerful companies. \n\nLike Polkadot, Parity was built on a foundation of being decentralised and open, which trickles down to how we work. We’re a distributed organisation and have been from the beginning. Being distributed isn’t just a way of doing business—it’s a mentality that is at the core of our culture. We have a flat structure that pushes power to the edges and empowers our people to take ownership of their role, authority coupled with responsibilities.\n\n \nAbout the team:\n\nAs a Validator Research Analyst (VRA) and apprentice to our Master of Validators, you will help Parity’s collaborators in the Web 3 ecosystem build the future of Polkadot by supporting infrastructure partners, application builders, chain builders, and end users.\n\n \n\nA VRA will contribute value to the ecosystem by helping decentralize the network further with various infrastructure, governance, and community initiatives. Some days this means reviewing treasury proposals or designing new feature sets of existing external products, other days this means contributing code to core microservices.

However we are looking for at least some of the following;\n\n\nDeep knowledge of how Polkadot works at a protocol level, including consensus, storage, and various key system pallets\n\nExceptional knowledge of Linux, including security aspects, networking and virtualization (3 years min)\n\nExperience with containerization including Docker and Kubernetes\n\nInfrastructure as code mindset: Experience with configuration management (e.g. Ansible) and cloud orchestration (e.g. Terraform)\n\nValues monitoring and observability, with metrics being a guiding factor towards implemenations and operations\n\nHas worked in Cloud Native (GCP, AWS, Azure, etc) environments before.\n\nKnowledge of and interest in decentralized technologies.\n\nExperience in Typescript (Rust is also a nice plus)\n\nAbility to communicate complex technical information in a clear, precise, and concise manner to a wide range of key stakeholders\n\nAbility to communicate and function in a distributed team.\n\n\n\n\n \nAbout working for us:\nFor everyone who joins us:\n\n\nCompetitive remuneration packages, including tokens (where legally possible), based on iterative market research\n\nRemote-first, global working environment with flexible hours\n\nCollaborative, fast-paced, and self-initiating culture, designed to mimic an open source workflow\n\nEnergising and collaborative team and company retreats all over the world\n\nOpportunity to learn more about Web3 while on the job, with access to some of the brightest minds in this space; we have plenty of educational initiatives such as internal sessions, all-hands, AMAs, hackathons, etc.\n\nTeammates who are genuinely excited about their job, impact, and Parity’s mission\n\nOpportunity to relocate to Germany or Portugal\n\n\n\nFor those joining us as employees in Germany, Portugal, or the U.K.:\n\n\n28 paid vacation days per year\n\nWork laptop (macOS or Linux-based) and equipment to enable you to work successfully\n\n\n\n\n\n£2,500 yearly learning and development budget for conferences or courses of your choice\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nNot a perfect match to our requirements?
