More: The Internet Computer is the fastest and only infinitely scalable general-purpose blockchain — incubated and launched by the DFINITY Foundation in May 2021. A team of over 200 world-rened cryptographers, distributed systems engineers, and programming language experts have taken on the massive technological challenge of building, maintaining, and continuously improving a ‘world computer’ powerful enough to host Web3 dapps, DeFi, games, NFTs, social media, and metaverse projects.
DFINITY was founded in 2016 by entrepreneur and crypto theoretician, Dominic Williams, and attracted interest and financial contributions from early members of the Ethereum community. Later, top-tier institutions such as Andreessen Horowitz, Polychain Capital, and SV Angel backed the Internet Computer in a collective effort to help build out Web3.
But if developers aren’t writing apps for it, what’s the point!? That’s where you come in. We’re looking for Software Engineers to improve and create best-in-class tools and examples for our developer community, so that building Dapps can be a breeze.
New to decentralized? Don’t k blockchain or cryptography? That’s okay! We have some of the world’s foremost experts and they’re excited to share their kledge. You bring your awesome skills and help us create something amazing.
While much of our hiring has been around our research centers in San Francisco, Palo Alto, and Zurich, we’re remote-friendly in supported locations.
