What is Herdius?
Herdius is a homomorphic distributed private key generation (DKG) protocol that interconnects blockchains, exchanges and ecosystems. We generate private keys for blockchains and then interconnect them on the key level which in turn eliminates the need for communication channels that you would otherwise have in side chains.
Our first product targets trading by interconnecting decentralized and centralized exchanges and doing cross-exchange settlement, fast arbitrage and cross-currency trading. All this makes for a crypto hedge fund that pays interest on all cryptocurrencies that are unfortunately somewhat unusable and just laying around on wallets.
We are looking for awesome backend engineers to join our team at Herdius. Location can be remote but we would prefer for you to join our teams sitting in Berlin, New York, San Francisco. We do not look at this as a job but rather a collective of amazing engineers and people working together to create amazing cutting edge tech for the masses. As a company we prioritize value generation first for everyone involved. Working at Herdius means you get to choose your own projects that you want to work on and contribute or bring in new ideas that you think will be great.

Your education or experience at the end of the day does not matter to us. It all comes down to us being convinced by your skills and drive. We mainly look for people who are passionate about projects they work on and have the drive to see a project through. Our code is mostly done in Golang with some Solidity for connectivity with Ethereum.
