GreenTech Blockchain Engineer
Location: Remote, UK based
Salary: Up to $150K
Blockchain isn't something traditionally associated with climate impact and making a positive difference. More than a few would argue if anything blockchain or crypto linked could deliver such impact.
But there's an important argument to be made '' in a world riddled with greenwashing '' for the transparency that blockchain can bring to projects and businesses.
It's an undeniably exciting and interesting field of work with immense potential.
Here we have a company making it easier for socially and environmentally driven individuals to find work in their desired field. To find jobs, projects and companies delivering the impact they seek.
Their platform enables people to search projects and job roles, whether permanent, freelance or volunteering and apply. The blockchain element enables them and the business or group to show what is achieved, a completed body of work or outcome, demonstrating their credentials and action, to protect them against heckles of greenwashing.
In many scenarios individuals will be paid as normal, but there's also opportunities to earn certain crypto tokens, verified as being mined with renewable energy.
The company are globally dispersed with their base in Japan, but people spread around the world from India to the US, UAE and several in between.
The teams are driven by their passion for social and environmental action, and have decades of experience helping refugees, working on renewables projects, tackling injustice and walking a path towards a healthier planet and society.
In terms of skills they're looking for, experience with smart contracts is a key priority.
Following that, they use Solidity and Haskell and are hoping to find someone with DevOps and automation experience to help establish infrastructure that's scalable on an international level, as they want their platform to benefit companies, NGOs and motivated people around the world, creating communities that can amplify their impacts.
In terms of Infrastructure, they're using AWS, with some GraphQL and are hoping to integrate algorithms and data structures to make it easier for folks to find work that matches their skills and experience.
They're tackling problems that so far, have only had local or regional solutions with limited reach. If you're keen to solve problems that have scaled and growing benefits for our one and only planet and it's most prolific species, please hit apply
