Braintrust ( is a user-controlled talent network, where you keep 100% of what you earn and actually get to own the platform. We've been onboarding some big clients and specifically need a Blockchain/Rust Developer for our client.  



Our Client empowers artists, cultural icons, content creators, influencers, celebrities and brands to access untapped creative and economic potential of NFTs by harnessing latent value in already-created properties and by designing new digital assets and virtual experiences.

  • 2+ years of experience as backend/blockchain developer or similar role
  • Very good knowledge of blockchain technology
  • In-depth knowledge in building and deploying complex on- and off-chain programs

  • Experienced in at least one of the following: Rust, Solidity, C++ (Rust is an advantage)
  • Good understanding of full stack development (React, Node, containerization/ serverless)

  • Critical thinking, problem solving and good time-management skills

Qualified candidates will be invited to do a screening interview with the Braintrust staff. We will answer your questions about the project, and our platform.  If we determine it is the right fit for both parties, we'll invite you to join the platform and create a profile to apply directly for this project.  

C2C Candidates: This role is not available to C2C candidates working with an agency. If you are a professional contractor who has created an LLC/corp around their consulting practice, this is well aligned with Braintrust and we’d welcome your application.
