About Our Client

You are passionate about Blockchain-security, and you want to advance your career even further? You believe that the security of protocols and smart contracts is the number 1 priority?

As a globally leading recruitment agency we are in touch with several industry-leading players as well as emerging start ups requesting technical Blockchain experts and leaders (m/f/d). Although we have not started officially hiring for these projects yet, we would like to encourage you to apply before we publish specific Blockchain job opportunities in the upcoming months. This will help us assess your interest and suitability for these roles and provide you with an early-bird advantage in the hiring process.
