  • promote and support dApp authors and 3rd party wallets in integrating Waku.
We are looking for software engineers that are passionate about Ethereum, decentralization and developer experience. and who would relish the opportunity to create a first class decentralised M2M messaging interface and toolkit and bring these new capabilities to DApp developers!
