Job Description

We're recruiting Software Engineers to join our client's Innovation Group. There are opportunities in the Blockchain Team, as well as other teams in this group. You'll be an early team member, reporting to a seasoned engineering leader with global experience in leading, large scale and startup tech companies. Your role will be to design and build new systems to transform how the organization and an industry leverages blockchain. These are real, production blockchain applications - not science projects.


The Innovation Group is a relatively new group in our client's organization. Their mission is to drive and support the organization's transformation into a technology company internally through innovation and the creation of Centres of Excellence (e.g., Site Reliability Engineering, Blockchain, etc.).

The group is run in a similar fashion to an incubator. They partner with the lines of business (LOBs) to understand how the group can support them in building new capabilities, products and systems. They work with the LOB > understand problems > create problem statement > build it > operationalize it and put it into production. Extremely lean, agile shop, no bureaucracy. 

As a member of the team, you’ll wear multiple hats and engage on a range of projects/products. It’s innovation focussed and similar to a startup environment, but with real customers, financial backing, and a huge market for your products.
