Technical Lead / Lead Developer – Blockchain Technology

City, London

£85,000 + bonus + benefits

Blockchain technology has given the World a technical breakthrough that allows us to know that ‘what I see, is what you see’. What it doesn’t offer is the guarantee that ‘who I see, is who you really are’, because blockchains for the most part operate in trust-less decentralised environments.

With many firms operating in an environment where trust is key rather than anonymity, the anonymity of blockchain-based systems is causing problems for large-scale commercial adoption in financial services.

We’ve been given a mandate by a firm who are solving this problem by working with the biggest names in cryptocurrencies, blockchain, biometrics and banking and finance.  

They are looking for a Lead Software Engineer with proven experience of taking a concept and building it. You will be joining a small, very well backed firm based in the City of London and taking their prototype models and making them a reality.

Ideally, you have worked in a large product-based firm with strong engineering process and practices. You will understand that the failures you’ve experienced are as valuable as the successes you’ve had.


  • Deep and broad understanding of computer science and engineering principles
  • Java technical leadership experience (Node.js and Javascript would be a bonus)
  • General knowledge of blockchain concepts and systems
  • Demonstrable experience of greenfield development

This firm are offering an opportunity to not only build a commercially viable product from the ground up, but also to build the team around you. Opportunities like this with the commercial timing and backing this firm are offering a very few and far between.
