Verisart applies blockchain tech to the world and having launched in 2015, is recognized as both a pioneer and leader in the space. We're on a mission to set new standards for digital certification of objects and to help artists thrive. Come help us build an evidence-based method of certifying authenticity. While understanding the mathematical fundamentals of cryptography is great, it’s not essential if you understand how cryptographic techniques like hashing and message signing work together to solve real problems. If you can’t appreciate the vastness and subtlety of this challenge, you need not apply.

We're heavily involved in the art world, supported by top artists and galleries, so if you like art that's great but not essential. It's more important you want to work in a growing startup and share a desire to build an industry transformative business.

We're looking for Senior Engineer/Lead Developer who is keen to join a startup that is experiencing its first wave of growth in a fast changing environment. You will be interested in smart contracts, sovereign identity and verifiable claims and want to an industry defining platform.
