About Swarm

Swarm is a system of peer-to-peer networked nodes that create a decentralised storage and communication service. The system is economically self-sustaining due to a built-in incentive system enforced through smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain.

Swarm aspires to shape the future towards a self-sovereign global society and permissionless open markets. On Swarm, applications can run autonomously yet securely in a planetary-scale deployment and execution environment.

Bee is a Swarm client implemented in Go. It’s the basic building block for Swarm Network. Bee provides low level constructs for file storage, feeds, key-value stores and untraceable communication.

The Swarm Bee team strives to keep things clear and simple, making reasoning and discussions efficient. In a broader sense, this applies to everything we do.

Solid, well-tested code is delivered in an agile manner.

Besides various innovative components, key technologies are libp2p, protobuf, leveldb, go-ethereum as well as various cryptographic libraries. We work with various development tools and practices to facilitate the agile development of well-tested code and timely delivery of our software.

Swarm Association is committed to creating an inclusive environment for everyone. As such, we strongly encourage women and other under-represented groups to apply for this position.
