Job Description

Validity Labs is a leading provider of blockchain-based decentralized applications and based in Switzerland. Our journey started in 2015 with the Ethereum genesis block and we have since grown to a dedicated team of 18. Validity Labs is the technical partner for a range of blockchain startups, offering support and know-how in the areas of initial coin offerings (ICOs), tokenization and decentralized marketplaces. We develop customised smart contracts, build web interfaces and maintain a back-end management toolchain. We also work with large corporations such as insurance companies and fund managers on their first blockchain products.

Validity Labs can offer you a great team with extensive knowledge and expertise. In addition, you have the possibility to work on diverse, multidisciplinary blockchain projects in close cooperation with the client company.

Moreover, you can choose to either work in our new office in Zug, Switzerland, or work from home. Besides, we offer our employees several perks and benefits, which you will not find in most companies.

We are committed to building a decentralized and inclusive new world economy and thereby contributing to the next industrial revolution. If you are into bold visions, working in uncharted waters and providing reliable high-quality projects, then this position is for you. You do not have to be a blockchain-professional just yet (we offer our trainee program for that), but an eagerness to acquire the necessary skills is required.
