Reputation is a Mycelium project. Reputation is a blockchain data analysis platform. Our platform collects, decodes and visualizes vital finance data from several blockchain networks so users of decentralized finance platforms (Defi) will know who to trust in an otherwise anonymous world. We offer all of our data as a public good from our API and aim to become an open standard that is trusted, impartial and decentralized for Defi.

We are creating this internship for 3 reasons:

We need to hire intelligent engineers. We do not require blockchain experience and knowledge, that's something we are offering you. Blockchain experience is rare and we hold the view that is more crucial to bring people on who are great problem solvers not subject matter experts.

We want to grow the De-Fi ecosystem in Australia. We believe De-Fi is an extremely valuable and important rapidly expanding industry and we want Australia to be at the forefront.

We like taking bets on people. We want to invest in people and offer them the opportunity to exponentially accelerate their careers. We will enable you to access financial, professional and personal opportunities that are unimaginable in any other company. We believe in a flat information hierarchy.

We do not care:

What year of study you are in. We will take 1st years, we will take people who have never attended uni, we will take experienced professionals. If you are intelligent and driven we will take a bet on you.

If you have De-Fi experience. This is a bonus although we expect that you have some interest in what we do. We will assume you have no knowledge. We will run an intensive introductory course to blockchain and De-Fi in the first week of the program.

If you are planning to continue studying. If you are a student and cannot work full-time that is fine. We want to create long-term relationships. We do want to fill full-time positions though so be warned that we will make you an offer you cannot refuse (in a good way!) if you need to decide between continuing your studies or building the future with us.

    • Looking for talented programmers to join us in expanding our stack and extending out the current functionality of our API, data-streaming service and front-end:
    • We don't expect you to have any knowledge of blockchain, we will train you
    • A a solid understanding of web development/data-streaming (any one or multiple of these) (React, Node)
    • Experience with Apache Kafka/Pub-Sub/RabbitMQ/Message Brokers is a big plus! (but not at all necessary)
    • SQL (Relational databases in general) knowledge is highly preferred
    • Cloud Hosting Platforms (GCP/AWS) is a nice to have!
    • Familiarity with standard development workflow (git, CI/CD)
Please refer to our Careers page for a comprehensive overview of the program and what we are looking for.

Our Values

Our mission is to 'Reimagine Trust'. In order to reimagine trust, one must begin by reimagining transparency. We believe that the future of corporate practice is for entities to become radically transparent.

We are innovation maximalists looking to build on the cutting edge of technology with global solutions. Everything about Mycelium - from its products and services to its management of people and workflows - has innovation sewn into it.

Freedom is the value which secures the meaningful expression of all others. To operate freely in the world and not jerk to the strings of another is axiomatic. There is no life without freedom, at least not one worth living.

Freedom is the right to walk in any direction; independence is choosing the right direction. To blaze a trail with an independence of thought and purpose is something that few have the courage to do. To walk independently is the greatest of privileges.

Strong individuals can be great, but strong communities can be greater still. Choosing the right community will determine how fully you abide by these values. Never underestimate the power of a community who shares the same North Star.
