IO Global (IOG) is searching for a Head to lead all technical aspects of the Cardano project.
IO Global (IOG) is searching for a Head of Software Engineering to lead all technical aspects of the Cardano project. Cardano is an advanced proof-of-stake blockchain built on strong research principles to produce a high-quality, high-assurance distributed system. It takes advantage of advanced lightweight formal methods to deliver a decentralized blockchain that has real-time, high-reliability characteristics. The product has been delivered in a series of stages (hard forks) that fulfill specific high-level requirements for a 3rd generation blockchain. The challenge is to complete the core set of requirements so that the project can be transitioned to an open source development model as part of an open governance process.
The team comprises a number of highly motivated, highly skilled designers, software developers, test engineers, and others, organized into specialist groups that focus on specific aspects of the system design. This role involves managing those teams to successfully deliver ongoing and future user requirements while ensuring a successful transition to the new open source processes and mechanisms. It also involves interacting with other teams within IOG, including those developing the new governance mechanisms, blockchain wallets, sidechains, smart contracts, DApps, sharding, and other core technologies, while ensuring that core user and stakeholder requirements are met.
IOG is a fully distributed organization and therefore this is a remote position. Due to team distribution we are ideally searching for someone in an European timezone.
