PolySign has luminaries in both the cryptocurrency and financial services spaces working to solve the biggest problem in crypto today: custody. The tech team includes Arthur Britto (founder of Ripple) and David Schwartz (Ripple’s chief cryptographer), who architected and conceptualized the initial version of the Ripple network and the XRP cryptocurrency. From the traditional financial services side are our CEO Jack McDonald (formerly CEO of Conifer Financial Services), and Tim Keaney, former vice chairman of the largest traditional custodian in the world, BNY Mellon. We are looking for other talented individuals who want to get in on the ground floor of something exciting!

Engineering team and processes

We are looking for founding engineers to join our 10-person engineering team. The team operates in a high-trust, high-responsibility environment,. We also operate on the marathon not a sprint mentality and try to adhere to 40 hour work weeks (though when we have to get something done, we also put int the hours). We use two-week sprints and have daily stand-ups to track issues in Github. In the current global situation we work remotely but highly leverage video conferencing and chat to stay closely connected including social activities via conferencing. We measure delivery not hours.
