Keybase makes public key cryptography available to everyone – experienced programmers and regular people alike – in a simple, effortless way. We aim to be the all-in-one, encrypted platform for chat, file sharing, and Git. We are Slack, Dropbox and GitHub in a single service, but encrypted while they are not.
Our primary goal is to make cryptographically secure communication, cryptocurrency, and identity management into a user-friendly experience.
We are working with a modern stack, utilizing React, React Native and Electron for our frontend and Go for our backend. All of our code is open source and well documented for anyone to take apart.
Keybase began as a project by Chris Coyne and Max Krohn, who previously founded and sold SparkNotes and OkCupid. To a user, the products that Chris and Max build are playful and fun, but underneath they are girded with innovative, elegant architecture.
Given Keybase’s lean operation, we have a long runway to innovate and grow. This opportunity is on-site in NYC, Seattle, SF, or Chicago — for the right candidate, remote is a possibility!
We're seeking an engineer to work cross-platform with us, but with a focus on Windows-specific concerns. You'll work directly with our founders & other amazing programmers and designers, many of whom have long tenures with Keybase.
While much of what we write is cross-platform, clearly there are UI, installer, packaging, updating, and system-interface concerns that need specific Windows love. In this role, you'll be an integral part of our front-end team, and have full dominion over the Windows edition of Keybase. We are building installers for Windows 7, 8 and 10.
