We are looking for an Android engineer to join our growing engineering team, to rapidly create, iterate and launch high-quality software that empowers users all over the world.

Our development team is tackling some of the most interesting problems in the crypto space while rapidly and securely scaling a distributed platform that touches millions of people a day. We want you to join us!

WHAT YOU WILL DO:
  • Be part of a team that is building industry-leading bitcoin wallets for users around the globe: View on Google Play
