Job Description

Description

IOG, creator of the Cardano blockchain platform, is searching for a senior JavaScript full-stack developer to join the Daedalus team as a Software Engineer.

Daedalus is a reference wallet for Cardano. It is a full node desktop application wallet, which means that unlike light wallets, such as Yoroi and Adalite, Daedalus downloads a full copy of the Cardano blockchain and independently validates every transaction in its history. That way you get maximum security and completely trustless operation, without centrally hosted third party servers.
