Who we are
Unique blockchain assets (“NFTs”) are experiencing a massive surge in popularity. These unique assets allow people to own anything from in-game items, to digital art, to music, and financial instruments.
However, they are highly illiquid: 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 for ourselves and for others, we have built Immutable X, a next-generation protocol for trading blockchain assets with instant trade confirmation, massive scalability, and no gas fees without compromising user custody. The goal of Immutable X is to help businesses scale their creation and trading of these unique assets (“NFTs”).
We are searching for a Lead Security Engineer who will help us secure trading and exchange technology and protect user assets. You will be responsible for developing and maintaining world-class security infrastructure in an exciting new domain filled with new challenges and opportunities for innovation.
You will have enormous autonomy to sculpt our security practices and processes, and to create a truly customer-driven culture of security from the ground up. This is an opportunity to not just build a more secure product for Immutable, but build a more secure future for digital asset ownership for the world.
Here's how you'll contribute
