Full Time
We are an early-stage blockchain startup preparing for our ICO. We are developing the first volatility-free smart contract platform and Decentralised Autonomous Charitable Organisation (DACO) - a decentralised body responsible for the governance of the blockchain and with a charity function. We are a team of two, an undergraduate and PhD candidate both from UCL. We are finalising our techinical design and my partner is preparing to write a research paper in regards to the project. As he will be paralleling his academics and will be taking the role of CRO, we are in need of a CTO.

We identified volatility as the core problem of cryptocurrencies today. With high volatility, there is an inherent capital loss risk in every transaction and smart contract and, which in turn hinders mainstream adoption. Thus, existing smart contract platform such as Ethereum, EOS and NEM incur inherent capital loss risk in usage and deter real demand. We address the volatility problem while leaving token valuation by market forces, through a unique design of our own. Simultaneously, DACO as a charity will create an unprecedented amount of positive externality which correlates to adoption rate.

We are looking for a highly motivated and skilled individual for the CTO position. The position requires background from blockchain, DLT, privacy enhacing techonologies, distributed systems, and information security.

Qualifications and Skills
Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or relevant fields
Strong fundamentals in theory and practice
Some experience as a CTO or similar leadership role
Strong leadership and project development skills
Outstanding communication skills (written and verbal)
Experience or familiarity with the cryptocurrency industry (must be investing in cryptocurrencies)
Background from blockchain, DLT, privacy enhacing techonologies, distributed systems, and information security

Responsibilities
Oversee all technical operation
In charge of successful development of the Velocium Blockchain
Build and manage development team
Continuously discover and implement new technologies that yield competitive advantage
Update and improve the technical details in the whitepaper and other materials

There will be a token allocation instead of equity like all other team members because we will eventually turn into a non-profit (DACO). Token allocation will be between 2~3% of initial lauch supply.
