Principal Engineer at Immutable

Immutable X, Full-time, Sydney, Australia sydney engineering full-time
Posted a month ago

We are on a mission to disrupt the gaming industry and to build the future of play-and-earn. Every year players are spending billions of dollars on digital items that they don’t actually own. We see this as a massive opportunity for disruption by introducing NFT games which are play-and-earn, where someone can play a game for fun while also earning digital assets.

The journey still needs some work. Currently, transactions take minutes or hours to confirm, and Ethereum can process fewer than 5 NFTs per second for the whole world combined.
To solve this problem, we have created a first-of-its-kind exchange, Immutable X. This is the first layer-2 scaling solution for NFTs on Ethereum, with instant trade confirmation, massive scalability, and zero gas fees, without compromising user custody.
