Blockchain Engineer

San Francisco, CA

High Fidelity is hiring an engineer with experience in C++ to architect deployment of a blockchain-based solution for tracking digital items and transactions across the company's decentralized virtual reality platform.

High Fidelity has built an open-source VR server that supports users connecting together and interacting socially. The platform allows users to import, manipulate, and share digital assets.

The company plans to use a public ledger and digital certifications to support the management and tracking of items users register with the company. This blockchain-based system will enable a marketplace for the sale of digital assets with certs showing their provenance and ownership.

Additionally, we are looking for a candidate excited to build their expertise in a specific area of our code and thrive as a key contributor to a large, ambitious open-source development project.

We encourage our engineers to contribute actively to the design of the systems they work on to help build the best product possible. Our product management process is focused on prioritizing projects designed and scoped by the engineering teams that will implement those projects. We are an engineering-driven company with ambitions to build a world-altering application.
