Engineering
Full-time
Celo is an open platform that makes financial tools accessible to anyone with a mobile phone. Our mission at C Labs is to help build a monetary system that creates the conditions for prosperity for all.

Celo aims to remove the barriers for large-scale adoption of cryptocurrencies as means-of-payment. Using a novel address-based encryption algorithm, Celo makes sending money as easy as sending a text. Additionally, Celo uses stable-value tokens pegged to fiat currencies, like the US Dollar, to minimize volatility. Anyone can participate in the network and earn Celo currency, even with a budget Android smartphone. The first application launching on our platform is a social payments and money transfer app, aimed at developing markets.

In this role you will have the opportunity to shape and implement the experience for developers contributing across the Celo stack and foster a thriving open source community. Since developers are a key stakeholder, this role is an opportunity to substantially contribute to the success of the Celo open source platform.

Location is negotiable. You'll be associated with and spend time regularly in one of Celo's offices (San Francisco, Berlin, Buenos Aires), but also travel regularly to organize and attend developer and community events, including internationally.
