The Interledger Protocol (ILP) provides the foundation for the Internet of Value. ILP is an open protocol that enables sending money in any currency and any amount to be as easy, fast, and inexpensive as sending information across the internet today. Like routers on the Internet, Interledger connectors route packets of money across independent payment networks. The open architecture and minimal protocol enable interoperability for any value transfer system. Interledger is not tied to any one company, blockchain, or currency.
We believe that interoperability is critical to achieving the Internet of Value and envision a widely available Interledger network allowing anyone to pay or get paid in the currency of their choice, nearly instantaneously and at minimal cost. We are looking for engineers who share in that vision. It's a big vision and we have a lot of work to get there but we are committed to building out the team to achieve this.
This role is located in our San Francisco office.
