4 Hiring: Senior API developer at verisart

verisart.com posted by gopher 13 days ago  

We’re looking for a Senior Golang and RESTful API developer to support our in-house development team and who could start immediately. Knowledge of micro services also helpful.  The main issue we’re facing is that we’re currently upgrading our technical stack and moving from a tightly coupled backend and front end to using react/redux and we have brought on a new front end dev but need someone with strong web app and restful API experience. 

The role would involve setting up the API framework as well as any authentication (OAuth2.0) and validation middleware. Routes would then need to be implemented and integrated. Role would also involve supporting any extra code requirements of the development team inside the scope of the API project. The work would be done as part of a small team, based in London (Mayfair). Competitive rates offered, as well as flexible working hours although the position is full time and on site and the candidate must be available at least 4 days per week at our office in London.

Background

Verisart is looking for engineers interested in applying cryptography at real world problems. Our problem lies within the art market as we address the problem of proving provenance for artworks and building evidence based certificates of authenticity. We recognize that cryptography is not a magic bullet. We want to use it intelligently to provide evidence where possible for people to interpret, like the web of trust.

What we look for?
We’re looking for people who understand how to apply cryptography to problems. While understanding the mathematical backgrounds to cryptography is great, it’s not essential if you understand how the cryptographic primitives like hashing and message signing work together to solve real problems.

We look for passion above all else although an interest in arts and collectibles is helpful. We are a small team based in London although the company began in California.

Requirements
Computer science degree or similar (preferred but not necessary). Git. High level experience such as C++, Golang, Rust, Java, Python. Bitcoin experience is an asset.

Our stack
Golang, Postgres, Javascript, Heroku, Python,

Who we are
Verisart is building the most trusted way to certify and verify artworks and collectibles using distributed ledger technology. We are a rapidly growing team of applied cryptographers, software engineers and designers with offices in Los Angeles and London. Robert Norton, former CEO of Sedition Art and Saatchi Art, leads the company. Peter Todd, core developer for the Bitcoin blockchain protocol and Dr. Ahmed Elgammal, Professor in Computer Science at The Art & AI Lab at Rutgers University are Board Advisors.
