Front-End Engineer

As Frontend Engineer, you will be responsible for the successful development and go-live of Veriscope web-applications. Key success metrics include unit test coverage, time to rollout updates, time for a VASP to sign-up and register, conversion rate and retention over time.

Job Description

Shyft Network is a decentralized open-source protocol designed to empower applications with trusted data, including identity. Shyft Network enables the enforcement of institutional and regulatory requirements within decentralized permissionless systems.
Shyft believes that automated compliance is a critical component to mass user and institutional adoption of decentralized finance (DeFi) and other permissionless systems. Shyft also recognizes that as we embrace compliance, we need to be cautious not to sacrifice efficiency and frictionless onboarding.

Veriscope is a compliance framework built atop the Shyft Network which enables Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs) to comply with the FATF Travel Rule and global regulatory requirements. Designed in collaboration with leading exchanges globally, Veriscope was implemented as a decentralized system to make sure users would retain control over their data, and the industry would not give control of such critical information to a small subset of market participants.
