Chainlink provides reliable tamper-proof inputs and outputs for complex smart contracts on any blockchain. The company is fully remote, with no offices or HQs and was founded in 2014.
Their goal is to make the next generation of smart contracts come to life, by allowing smart contracts on any blockchain to securely access any critical off-chain resource.
Smart contracts are on track to revolutionize how all agreements work, through an entirely new system of technologically enforced contract guarantees. Chainlink enables next-generation smart contracts that can be written about any/all events in the real world. Chainlink is well recognized for providing highly secure and reliable blockchain connectivity to the world's largest enterprises, such as Google, Oracle, SWIFT, and many more.
This is a unique opportunity to join one of the top companies developing cutting-edge blockchain technology while working closely together with a team of experienced senior developers so make sure to check out their open roles!
What makes ChainLink a great place to work?
The company created a unique solution to the smart contract connectivity problem in the form of ChainLink, a secure oracle network. What differentiates ChainLink from other oracle solutions is its ability to operate as a fully decentralized network. This decentralized approach limits the trust in any single party, enabling the tamperproof quality valued in smart contracts to be extended to the end-to-end operation between smart contracts and the APIs they rely on. Making smart contracts externally aware, meaning capable of interacting with off-chain resources, is necessary if they are going to replace the digital agreements in use today. More details of their approach can be found in Chainlink's whitepaper.
