You will join our small, fiery team on our mission to create open access to building wealth.

We're looking for someone with a thirst for knowledge and interested in working with the most exciting financial innovation ever created: bitcoin.

Bitcoin is important because it enables wealth to be stored with an individual without need for a third party. Its fundamental use-case as a store of value with a predictable monetary policy is having profound implications on freeing individuals into financial sovereignty.

Security Engineer

Welcome to the crypto world where money is data and therefore data breaches could kill a startup. Have a look at the blockchain graveyard: https://magoo.github.io/Blockchain-Graveyard/.

The tl;dr of your role is having Shakepay never show up there.

You can come at this role from different angles: a software developer with application security experience, or an infrastructure engineer with infrastructure security experience. Eitherway, you will be carrying the security torch at Shakepay.
