WHAT IS TRUSTORY? Trustory is a social network to validate claims that people make online.

THE PROBLEM The internet is open and permissionless. That means (in theory) anyone can say anything they want and it can be accessed by the rest of the world. This was fantastic when only a handful of media outlets could control what information reached the world. But we’ve already begun to see the costs of sacrificing trust for openness — Rampant amounts of misinformation being spread on the internet to the point of not being able to trust anything.

OUR SOLUTION We’re solving this through a social network where experts debate the authenticity of claims people make.

OUR TEAM We’ve worked at Andreesen Horowitz, Coinbase, Facebook, Goldman Sachs, Groupon, TED, Atlassian, Bear Stearns. We have funding from True Ventures, Homebrew, Coinbase, Pantera Capital, Fred Ehrsam, Scott Belsky, and others.

Engineering at trustory.io
Engineering team and processes

Lean team — only 2 full-time engineers. Lots of autonomy over your work, if you can get stuff done. Very little process, we meet once a week, then self-organize and ship code.

Technical Challenges

We are building an app on decentralized infrastructure — so it's bleeding edge technology. It's like building a Rails app when Ruby on Rails first launched. Or building an iOS app when the iPhone first launched.

To be a good fit, you have to be willing to work in this environment where the technology is nascent and you'll be expected to learn fast.

Projects you might work on
  • Build out GraphQL endpoints that connect the Cosmos blockchain node to the React Native / React Web app.

  • Lead the development of the web app (React + GraphQL) from scratch.

  • Build out a redis backend for storing various objects off-chain.
