We are partnering with a leading blockchain organisation called NEM Group.

As a Rust Software Engineer, you will work with a multidisciplinary team to translate business requirements and functional specifications into the underlying technology that powers cutting-edge blockchain technology.

We are a multicultural startup of dreamers, designers and developers that create disruptive technologies that enables our customers to accelerate their digital transformation.
