DevOps Engineer

This is a full-time position for a Belgrade-based candidate.

About Evernym

Evernym is building the next generation of digital interactions between individuals, organizations, and things using cutting edge blockchain technology. We knew for this technology to be truly trusted, no one could own it–it must be decentralized–so we created and released Sovrin, the first open-source blockchain dedicated to self-sovereign identity, which now has its own thriving open-source community around it. Evernym works with leading companies, institutions, governments and NGOs to create and deploy new private-by-design solutions which give individuals true control and ownership of their personal data.

We are a global (London, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Belgrade) startup helmed by a team with a track record of execution. We are addressing the crisis of trust which pervades the modern digital world, and we are looking for talented, adventurous, entrepreneurial folks to join us.
