Job Description

About this role

We are looking for a hands on, motivated and experienced Lead Blockchain Developer to lead and grow our development team, nurturing a centre of excellence for blockchain technology in our home city of Bristol, UK.

You will be a pivotal part of a dedicated product team providing direction and guidance to a multidisciplinary team tasked with working to develop our core product but also to lead on our pilot programmes working alongside global vehicle manufacturers, transport providers and technology partners.

About you

You’ll be a confident self starter and comfortable with a lot of autonomy. You’ll be a pragmatist and know when to follow perceived wisdom or when to tear up the rule book. You’ll have significant experience shipping commercial or corporate software at scale, lived to tell the tale and learned from the experience. You’ll be excited by technology and how it impacts people’s lives. You’ll care deeply about the user. You’ll be comfortable in a rapidly evolving, agile (in all senses of the word) environment with strong opinions loosely held. By which we mean your experience is incredibly valuable but you’re a good listener and able to communicate your ideas cogently, whilst being respectful and open to others input. You have experience leading a team, providing direction, support, guidance and mentorship. You’ll have a good body of work to talk through, and preferably demonstrate. You have hands on experience working on blockchain projects and a deep understanding of blockchain, cryptocurrency and related technologies. You’ll love travel and transportation and are genuinely excited about transforming the mobility industry.
