# Content Addressed Computing

In the Compute-Over-Data track at IPFS Camp 2022 (opens new window), several projects and IPFS contributors highlighted how the landscape of computing is evolving (opens new window), and how they believe computing can become refocused and more powerful by embracing content addressing and a “merkle-native” way of doing things.

Content-addressing and the use of merkle data structures– identifying data by a cryptographic hash – is already a well-known revolution of how data structures can be designed for decentralization, bringing benefits like verifiability, naturally coordination-free data deduplication, and more. Learn more in this recap (opens new window) of the Compute-Over-Data track from IPFS Camp.

JS IPFS and libp2p Systems Engineer (opens new window): (opens new window) Protocol Labs is hiring a JS IPFS and libp2p Systems Engineer. Systems Engineering lies at the core of many projects at Protocol Labs, next to Research and Distributed Systems. JavaScript Systems Engineering sits on the front line of pushing the DWeb forward by building the implementation that will enable JS environments like browsers, Node, Deno, Electron, etc. to be fully capable nodes on the IPFS network.This requires rigorous engineering from protocol design through all the phases of implementation. Protocol Labs strikes a balance between pragmatism, deeply informed protocol design, and strict application of strong engineering principles. All of this happens in an environment defined by curiosity, passion, and a love for open source. Protocol Labs, Remote.

Project Manager: (opens new window) The Graph ecosystem continues to grow, and they're looking for a Project Manager to support activities including, but not limited to, governance and internal processes and operations. The Graph is the indexing and query layer of web3. The Graph Network’s self service experience for developers launched in July 2021. Developers build and publish open APIs, called subgraphs, that applications can query using GraphQL. The Graph supports indexing data from multiple different networks including Ethereum, NEAR, Arbitrium, Optimism, Polygon, Avalanche, Celo, Fantom, Moonbeam, IPFS, and PoA with more networks coming soon. To date, tens-of-thousands of subgraphs have been deployed on the hosted service, and now subgraphs can be deployed directly on the network. Over 28,000 developers have built subgraphs for applications such as Uniswap, Synthetix, KnownOrigin, Art Blocks, Balancer, Livepeer, DAOstack, Audius, Decentraland, and many others.
