Golang / Go Job: Senior Backend Developer | Golang for Blockchain/FinTech in Part-time or Full-time

Herdius

Senior Backend Developer | Golang for Blockchain/FinTech in Part-time or Full-time at Herdius

Berlin, Germany 🇩🇪   (Posted Jun 11 2019)

About the company
About Herdius
--------------------------------------
Herdius is a Berlin based Blockchain Company. We are working on building homomorphic distributed private key generation which then is turned into value bearing products in different sectors. Currently we are very close to open beta-testing for the Herdius-Crypto-Wallet.

What we focus on on the blockchain field specifically is interoperability and trading. When connecting different chains on the key level, users can eliminate communication channels, bridges and complex systems. In other words, users can do cross-exchange and chain token swaps very conveniently and profitably for the user due to the cross-exchange arbitrage opportunities. The broader vision is one day to replace API auth keys with public-private key cryptography in order to provide layered access to user data.

All this makes for a crypto eco system and hedge fund that pays interest on all cryptocurrencies (that right now are unfortunately somewhat unusable and just laying around on wallets).

Do they allow remote work?
Remote work is possible, see the description below for more information.
