Job description
What is Herdius?

Herdius is a homomorphic distributed private key generation (DKG) protocol that interconnects blockchains, exchanges and ecosystems. We generate private keys for blockchains and then interconnect them on the key level which in turn eliminates the need for communication channels that you would otherwise have in side chains.

Our first product targets trading by interconnecting decentralized and centralized exchanges and doing cross-exchange settlement, fast arbitrage and cross-currency trading. All this makes for a crypto hedge fund that pays interest on all cryptocurrencies that are unfortunately somewhat unusable and just laying around on wallets.

Job Description

We are looking for awesome backend engineers to join our team at Herdius. Location can be remote but we would prefer for you to join our teams sitting in Berlin, New York, San Francisco. We do not look at this as a job but rather a collective of amazing engineers and people working together to create amazing cutting edge tech for the masses.
