Development Updates, Job Opening for Golang and UI/UX

technical

7th October 2019

Introduction

We are now into the final quarter of 2019. Recently, quantum computing has been back in the news in a bigger way, with reports of increased levels of private investment in space, as well as continued attention being paid by governments. We are also continuing to post job openings (more on this below), as we look to strategically grow the team ahead of our next development objectives. Finally, we will have the September Community Nomination recipient sometime later this week or next week.

Development

  • qrl-wallet: UX tweaks to wallet opening
  • theqrl.org: Remove unnecessary clutter from splash
  • block-explorer: Wallet address changed

Call for Golang Developer, UI/UX Designer

As we have mentioned elsewhere, QRL is hiring three individuals for two specific positions (we are also separately searching for cryptographers interested in threshold lattice cryptography, for a grant we are developing) — UX/UI Designer, and Golang Developer(x2). You can see these job postings on angel.co. We have received some interesting applications already, but want to cast as wide a net as possible to maximize the likelihood of finding the ideal candidate.

  • Occasionally interact with the community in a polite and conductive manner.

What we wish you to be:

  • You have a graduate degree or higher in computer science or affiliated field.
  • You have written high-performance and concurrent applications.
  • You are part of the QRL Community.

Compensation

  • Competitive based on capability and experience

UI/UX Designer

We are looking for someone to:

  • Build a consistent brand identity and pleasurable user experience

Your qualifications:

  • BSc. degree in design/fine arts, related fields or experience in the area

  • Ideally experience in mobile hybrid frameworks such as Ionic, Framework7, etc.
  • Previous experience with Android/iOS development.
  • Some experience in software development is a plus.
  • Critical thinking and able to work independently
  • We appreciate if you can provide a portfolio of previous work.
  • Language: English is critical

We offer:

  • You will be a freelance contributor working remotely

  • Open source development, most of your work will be publicly recognized.
  • We expect massive growth in the short/medium term.
