Blockchain technology will usher in a new era of decentralized internet, supporting innovation in and disruption of all major global industries and charitable causes.
Before blockchain can fully achieve its potential, it needs mass adoption. Niche programming languages, lack of technological education and uninviting user interfaces have so far kept it away from many of those with the potential to use it.
Our core values of blockchain accessibility, education and user-centricity guide not only our technology, but also our marketing and community channels. With the founding of Lisk Academy, we aim to educate and inspire as many as possible about their ability to realise their disrupting blockchain vision.
Sounds amazing? We think so too! Therefore we are looking for a researcher with expertise in algorithms, cryptography and blockchain technology, who can help the Lisk project achieve a cryptographically secure and scalable protocol. We are a small but rapidly growing team with extraordinary ambitions. Therefore, we are searching for excellent candidates who can help us reach Lisk’s ambitious objectives.
