Job Description


IO Global, creator of the Cardano blockchain platform, is searching for a Service Reliability Engineer to join our Service Reliability team.

This role is part of the Devnets team. At IO Global we do things that have never been done before in ways that have never been done before. We are looking for the very best people to join us, work with us and help us to change the world. If you are a problem-solver who is self-driven with a black belt in getting stuff done, we want to talk to you!

Our blockchain engineers, app developers, theorists and community managers are working together in a start-up-like environment to add collaboration tools to human processes and create a friendly and engaging experience.
