About Evernym

Got blockchain?

Evernym is building the next generation of identity infrastructure for the world, enabling trusted peer interactions between individuals, organizations, and things. Having created and released Sovrin, the first open-source distributed ledger network dedicated to ‘independent’ identity, Evernym works with leading companies, institutions, and NGOs to create and deploy new, private-by-design solutions which give the individual true control and ownership of their personal data.

We are a growing, global (London, Salt Lake City, Seattle, Belgrade) company helmed by a team with a track record of execution. We are redressing the fundamental imbalance between security, privacy, and utility which pervades the modern world, and we are looking for talented, adventurous, entrepreneurial folks to join us.

As you might imagine, we need some serious software development mojo to pull this off. We are expanding our team and we are very specifically looking for the right developer who wants to be part of our startup and growth.

About the Role

We are looking for someone with serious networking, low-level, and backend, server-side development skills to work on our blockchain technology. 

On this team, you will primarily be engaged in the Sovrin and Hyperledger communities. Projects you could be involved in include Hyperledger Indy, Ursa, and Aries.

Dive into advanced distributed ledger work to make sure independent identities are properly handled and secured. Help us design and implement highly performant and scalable applications that will be used by millions.
