    Verisart is hiring Applied Cryptographers & Software Engineers for its new London office

    The problem we’re addressing
    Verisart is looking for engineers interested in applying cryptography at real world problems. Our problem lies within the art market as we address the problem of proving provenance for artworks and building evidence based certificates of authenticity. We recognize that cryptography is not a magic bullet. We want to use it intelligently to provide evidence where possible for people to interpret, like the web of trust.

    What we look for?
    We’re looking for people who understand how to apply cryptography to problems. While understanding the mathematical backgrounds to cryptography is great, it’s not essential if you understand how the cryptographic primitives like hashing and message signing work together to solve real problems.

    We look for passion above all else although an interest in arts and collectibles is helpful. We are a small team based in London with additional locations in New York and Los Angeles.

    Computer science degree or similar (preferred but not necessary). Git. High level experience such as C++, Golang, Rust, Java, Python. Bitcoin experience is an asset.

    Our stack
    Golang, Postgres, Javascript, Heroku, Python,

    Who we are
