Cryptography Engineers

Cambridge, GB


Standard Stuff

Fetch is a world changing project, a “decentralised digital world” where autonomous software agents act on the behalf of their owners, or their own interests to perform useful economic work. Fetch to us, and our thousands of community members is one of the most exciting projects of the moment and future.

We have a working prototype in which active agents solve complex distributed problems scaling in difficulty with speed. A scaling ledger poised to be working at 1,000,000 transactions a second. World leading machine learning researchers are creating true intelligence in our distributed ledger.

We’re looking for exceptional people of all disciplines and skill levels to help bring Fetch to life.
