About Tierion

Tierion’s mission is to replace trust with proof. We see a future where the blockchain is the trust anchor for the world’s data. We started by creating Chainpoint, an open protocol for anchoring data to the Bitcoin blockchain. Next, we launched the Chainpoint Network; a global proof engine that can verify the integrity and timestamp of any data, file, or business process. Today we’re focused on advancing Chainpoint and building Proof.

Job Description

As a Senior DevOps Engineer, you’ll help architect and manage the infrastructure behind Chainpoint and Proof. You’ll be part of an experienced team that cares deeply about building great software, and is excited about working at the forefront of the blockchain industry. We don’t consider DevOps a backend function at Tierion. It’s vital part of delivering a positive experience to developers and end users.
