We champion the builders of tomorrow by providing the infrastructure, tools, services, programs and support for creation on one of the world’s fastest, most sustainable and consistently reliable public blockchain – XRP Ledger. By supporting an open community of developers, they can advance the solutions and innovation needed to allow businesses, consumers, institutions and governments to fuel the engine of a new digital economy.

  • Empowering a community that’s democratizing the digital economy 
  • The expertise of a technology company that is known for vision and pragmatism 
  • Blockchain infrastructure that is supported by RippleX and owned by everyone

We are looking for someone to lead the Platform Engineering team, supporting software and infrastructure across RippleX,  including infrastructure we run as members of the XRPL community.  We have a big vision and the ambition to match.  You also see the huge potential of this technology and have the entrepreneurial spirit and technical excellence to realize the vision we have.
