RippleX is a division at Ripple focused on accelerating adoption of the digital asset XRP and the XRP Ledger in blockchain projects across industries and technologies. RippleX aims to build a robust ecosystem of third-party developers, projects and companies that build, grow and monetize their applications on XRP, Interledger Protocol and other blockchain technologies.
RippleX has built technologies like ILP, that enables sending money in any currency and any amount to be as easy, fast and inexpensive as sending information across the internet; PayString, which enables interoperability between payment networks; and toolkits and API’s in several Languages that enable developers to build on top of the XRP ecosystem.
We believe that interoperability is critical to achieving the Internet of Value and envision a widely available network allowing anyone to pay or get paid in the currency of their choice, nearly instantaneously and at minimal cost. We are looking for engineers who share in that vision. It’s a big vision and we have a lot of work to get there but we are committed to building out the team to achieve this.
