About Digital Asset

Digital Asset helps companies of all sizes and across industries get distributed applications to market faster, and stay there longer. At the core of our service offering is Daml (daml.com), the open source and platform-independent smart contract framework that enables developers to write an application once and deploy it anywhere. Today, we work with some of the largest companies in the world to harness the transformative power of smart contracts - a component of the distributed ledger technology (DLT) stack - and change the way applications are developed, deployed and used to solve real-world business challenges.

Digital Asset is a global company with offices in New York, London, Budapest, Zurich, Hong Kong, and Sydney.

As we grow our team, we will maintain the dynamic, collaborative and pragmatic way of working that has grounded our efforts from the beginning.  If you seek to develop solutions others have yet to contemplate, this opportunity may be right for you!


The Application Runtime team builds rich APIs that allow our customers to interact with the Daml Ledger (a JSON API, bindings for Java and Web developers). We also develop tooling for cross-cutting concerns such as observability and authorization. Finally, we are looking to improve and expand our offering for deploying and monitoring Daml deployments in cloud-native environments.
