Job description

Your opportunity

Always Venturing.
Through the access, speed and ingenuity of technology, the ways we can achieve innovation are expanding every day. At Deloitte Ventures, we believe there are many possible futures for our business and our clients, and we’re here to explore them all. No more risk of inaction, no more missed opportunities, no more lost futures. Together with all of Deloitte, we create connections across the breadth of our people, organisation, and ecosystems to make an impact that matters to our clients and to society.

Want to help us shape the future? As part of our Blockchain Studio, your career with Deloitte Ventures can take multiple paths. Including: delivery of client solutions, ongoing R&D and studio operations, ecosystem and venture design, and creating new service capabilities and related technology.

We embrace the strengths of diverse talent within our team. You may have a brilliant mind, be a confident communicator or a nerd for all things blockchain, or you may have an impeccable business instinct, a collaborative outlook and a flair for big ideas

We encourage consideration of flexible ways of working, both formal and informal arrangements that allow for the best outcomes for our people and our clients. If this opportunity is of interest to you with some flexibility, please do discuss with us.

Your role

We’re expanding fast, so we’re looking for people who are natural initiative-takers who bring out the best in others, are brilliant listeners and can grow our business without compromising standards, integrity or culture.

  • You will work with outstanding digital talent across disciplines to innovate and create great solutions for iconic brands.
  • Continually look to explore distributed ledgers and design patterns that help us deliver solutions that excite our client’s customers
  • Collaboratively working as part of a multi-disciplined blockchain team to design and implement software solutions to client challenges
  • Developing clean, well tested code through to production
  • Work with business analysts and designers to translate client requirements into working software
  • Work effectively in diverse teams within an inclusive team culture where people are recognised for their contribution

Use the latest technologies and methodologies to deliver a broad range of high quality decentralised apps for this decade and the next. Some of the areas we are looking at currently are:

  • Blockchain/DLT platforms (e.g., Ethereum, Hyperledger Fabric/Indy, Corda, Sovrin, Hedera)
  • Digital assets, Decentralised Finance (DeFi), smart contract audits
  • Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI)
  • Web3 App Development
  • Mobile Crypto and Identity Wallets
  • Micro-services and cloud native design
  • Container based architecture

Your work, your choice
At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk. We carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. Please speak to your recruiter about the working pattern that works best for you.

Location: Through our studios spread across the globe, we help our clients imagine, deliver and run the future, through from customer research right through to implementation. And we love doing it. This role will be located in our 1 New Street Square office in London, and probably home-based for the foreseeable future.

Work pattern: This is a permanent opportunity, to be worked on a full time basis. However, our team members work a variety of agile working patterns. Tell us what arrangement works for you and we’ll try to accommodate.

Your professional experience
Overall, you’re an ideas person and problem solver as well as a hands-on doer – that’s important. You know it takes a mix of people to do amazing work, so you love collaborating with and learning from people with different skills, backgrounds and perspectives. If you have an interesting or unusual mix of skills yourself, even better.


  • Demonstrable ability to implement production-grade solutions across both Frontend (Web or Mobile) & Backend (APIs, Microservice) technologies & frameworks
  • A clear understanding of and ability to explain advanced concepts of blockchains and distributed ledgers (e.g. Ethereum, Hyperledger Fabric/Indy, Corda, Sovrin), along with good overall engineering patterns and practices
  • Professional experience of using at least one major frontend framework (e.g. React, AngularJS, etc) and one major distributed ledger framework (e.g. Ethereum, Hyperledger Fabric/Indy, Corda, Sovrin, Hedera) to develop decentralised applications.
  • Experience of build and test automation preferably including continuous delivery and a DevOps approach to build, test automation, and continuous deployment
  • Working knowledge of software landscape, architectures, trends, and emerging technologies and tools such as Behaviour Driven Development, Elastic Cloud Based Environments, and Rapid Prototyping Tools
  • Understanding of common Cloud Native technologies & architectures and demonstrable knowledge of working with them on at least one major Cloud provider (e.g. Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure)
  • Experience of working within an agile development environment and working knowledge of agile software development methodologies and frameworks such as Scrum & Kanban
  • Experience of designing, developing, creating decentralised application in an enterprise context.
  • Track record of leading development teams.

With our combined specialist skills and business partnering expertise, we provide all the essential strategy, support and advice our client-facing colleagues need, right across the firm. This enables them to focus all of their efforts on delivering the best service possible to their clients.

Your team: Deloitte Ventures

Deloitte Ventures are a collective of designers, developers, data scientists and storytellers for change that enable the firm to solve complex problems by investing in new business models and experimenting with disruptive innovations and ventures. Within Deloitte Ventures are innovation studios, incubators, scaling and accelerator teams offering three main value propositions

  • Streamlining: doing existing things differently by integrating disruptive technology into existing processes and offerings
  • Enhancing: doing new things by co-creating the next wave of services for our people and clients
  • Disrupting: creating new venture relationships, business models and capabilities to change the nature of our relationships with clients and other businesses

Personal independence

Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints. This can mean that you and your “Immediate Family Members” are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm. The recruitment team will provide further detail as you progress through the recruitment process.
