Senior UI/UX Designer at Anoma (Heliax)

Headquarters: Berlin, Germany

Senior UI/UX Designer

The primary project of Heliax is the Anoma protocol. Anoma is a sovereign, proof-of-stake blockchain protocol that enables private, asset-agnostic cash and private bartering amongst any number of parties. In addition to Anoma, Heliax works on open-source projects which are part of the Anoma ecosystem, including cryptographic libraries such as the MASP and tools for high assurance validity predicates and arbitrary zero-knowledge circuits (Juvix).

Heliax is a remote-first team, currently composed of cross-disciplinary members located around the world. All of our work is open-source. Our work culture is characterized by open-allocation, where team members have a high degree of freedom and autonomy in choosing when to work, what to work on, and whom to work with.
