At R3, you would be at the cutting edge of decentralized Digital Ledger Technology (DLT) technology.
Corda is a distributed DLT platform designed for running complex workflows between businesses, with or without any centralized points of control. You will work on a digital ledger platform trusted by banks, insurance companies, stock exchanges, payment companies, and other highly demanding industries while dealing with the interesting technical challenges that come with them.
We are looking for a highly technical developer evangelist to join our team of passionate, dedicated professionals. As a developer evangelist at R3, you will play a crucial role in fostering relationships with the developer community, creating exceptional technical content, and promoting the adoption of our developer-oriented solutions.
We are seeking a highly motivated software engineer with a proven track record and a minimum of 3 years of career experience in software development. As an experienced professional, you have a strong grasp of Computer Science fundamentals and have gained valuable knowledge and expertise in software development / design / architecture practices through both academic studies and work experience. You possess a deep curiosity to learn about new technologies and have a specific interest in the realm of DLT. You are curious to know what it takes to build a secure, high-quality, business-critical system that supports extremely high volume transactions.
Our software development is based on JVM languages, more specifically Java and Kotlin, but while advantageous, expertise in these languages is not an essential requirement. What matters most is that you have a solid foundation in software development using a modern high-level language and a willingness to learn the necessary skills for the role. We believe that customer experience, quality, security, developer experience, and operational experience are everyone’s responsibility, so you’ll be driven by a passion for ensuring excellence in all of these.
