Apply for this job

At R3 you would be at the cutting edge of decentralized Digital Ledger Technology (DLT) technology. Corda is a distributed DLT platform designed for running complex workflows between businesses, with or without any centralized points of control. You will work on a digital ledger platform trusted by banks, insurance companies, stock exchanges, payment companies, and other highly demanding industries, while dealing with the interesting technical challenges that come with them.

You will join the R3 Digital Currencies team to build the next generation digital currency systems that integrate directly to the blockchain. This is an exciting time in the digital currency space. As part of the Digital Currencies engineering team you can expect to work on truly unique Central Bank Digital Currencies (CDBC) as Central Banks the world over are preparing for this transformation. Our Digital Currencies work also encompasses cutting edge products such as tokenised cash and other types of digital assets (e.g. digital bonds/derivatives) etc. No team is an island - you will work with many others across the company, to help ensure we build the best possible products across the digital currencies, tokenised cash and digital asset DeFi ecosystem.
