The team is currently delivering its product to the Georgian and Ethiopian governments. In this context, you will join a fast-paced environment where challenges lie in handling growing product and commercial requests.

We are redefining and standardizing the concept of digital identity, leveraging the capabilities of Cardano and many other technologies. To further our goals and address the business demand for Prism, we need to expand and structure our technical team.

In Atala we own the solution end-to-end, designing and implementing protocols, services, and applications, as well as infrastructure and deployment plans. The core team is seven engineers. You will contribute to the design, development and standardization of a strong, robust and scalable architecture for the Atala backend.

For this purpose, we need an experienced remote engineer who can lead, design and coordinate our standardization strategy with the Decentralized Identity Foundation and the World Wide Web Consortium to position IO Global and Atala as leaders in digital identity and help benefit millions of people.
