Job Description

Chorus One is the largest cryptocurrency validation company in Europe, and runs validators on cutting edge Proof of Stake networks such as Cosmos, Solana, Celo, Polkadot and Oasis. We also research, design and build interoperability solutions to enable a richer inter-blockchain ecosystem.

  • Prior blockchain experience is an added plus.
  • Prior experience with Solidity is an added plus.
