Job Description

About Clearmatics

Clearmatics is a B2B fintech startup building P2P protocols and tools for automating the finance industry. Specifically, we design protocols and build platforms for decentralised Financial Market Infrastructure (dFMI).

Founded in 2015, we are a London-based blockchain R&D company, whose mission is to build peer-to-peer infrastructures that solve issues and inefficiencies inherent to today's client-server architectures. We call our technology approach 'decentralized automation', which combines cryptography,
consensus protocols and economic mechanism design. We have good ties to the Open Source / Ethereum community, we work closely with the Ethereum Foundation, and the company is an Ethereum Enterprise Alliance Member.
