Pretoria is a genesis mainnet validator on the Celo network and is currently expanding into other blockchain protocols – including in the growing DeFi and open finance ecosystem.

What we are looking for:

We are looking for an exceptional Chief Technology Officer (CTO) who is passionate about building businesses and teams to lead and own the end-to-end success of this disruptive Blockchain startup.

About the role:

Design, engineer, and monitor blockchain protocols running on cloud architecture at the core of Pretoria’s validating services. Validating on the Celo protocol since genesis, Pretoria is expanding our suite of nodes and requires an engineer with a working knowledge of blockchain protocols and ability to quickly evaluate and deploy new protocol stacks.

This is a full stack role with a focus on cloud engineering and monitoring rather than direct application programming. You are expected to leverage the current technical implementations and propose purposeful development and refactoring in secure blockchain environments with funds at stake.

Pretoria additionally hosts web assets that provide popular tooling and visualizations for our blockchain protocols. These assets need to be refactored for performance, cost, and genericized for new networks as our stable of protocols increases.
