We’re making the world of digital assets accessible and secure for everyone.
Join the mission.

Founded in 2014, Ledger is the global platform for digital assets and Web3. Over 20% of the world’s crypto assets are secured through our Ledger Nanos. Headquartered in Paris and Vierzon, with offices in the UK, US, Switzerland and Singapore, Ledger has a team of more than 700 professionals developing a variety of products and services to enable individuals and companies to securely buy, store, swap, grow and manage crypto assets – including the Ledger hardware wallets line with more than 5 millions units already sold in 180 countries.

At Ledger, we embody the values that make us unique: Pragmatism, Audacity, Commitment, Trust and Transparency. Have a look at our Origins video here.

NFTs are a complete revolution: for the first time in the history of the World Wide Web can we now protect and monetize ideas, issue certificates of ownership and store them in decentralised and open chains. It’s an absolute game changer, but it’s still a nascent space where a lot still needs to be built.

At Ledger, we are building the world’s most secure NFT online shop and we need you to lead this. Reporting directly to the VP Engineering Consumer, you will be responsible for
building, developing and maintaining our NFT platform, [Ledger] Market
.

We require someone who is no stranger to rapidly scaling up teams, a “been there done that” kind of person, who has proven experience in Web3, managing international Tech’ teams and has a passion for success.
Ledger will give you the opportunity to work with cutting edge technologies and be at the forefront of the Web3 and NFT revolutions.
