Senior UI/UX Designer ===================== **Overview** The primary project of Heliax is the [Anoma](https://anoma.network/) protocol.

In addition to Anoma, Heliax works on open-source projects which are part of the Anoma ecosystem, including cryptographic libraries such as the [MASP](https://github.com/anomanetwork/masp) and tools for high assurance validity predicates and arbitrary zero-knowledge circuits ([Juvix](https://github.com/heliaxdev/juvix)). Heliax is a remote-first team, currently composed of cross-disciplinary members located around the world. All of our work is open-source.
