Valora Inc’s mission is to democratize access to wealth for people all around the world. We believe every person should have access to the information, education, and tools needed to build wealth. When everyone has the potential to prosper, our world will be a more supportive and interconnected place.
The engineering team at Valora Inc is focused on making blockchain and cryptocurrency systems accessible to anyone with a mobile device. Our flagship product, named Valora, is a mobile financial application built on top of the Celo blockchain network. Achieving our goal requires implementing solutions across the blockchain technical stack. We’re looking to hire a principal engineer that will help shepherd the development of our infrastructure, backend systems, and smart contract-based applications.
We work across mobile, cloud, and blockchain platforms. Valora is written using React Native and we code heavily in TypeScript. We implement smart contracts supporting Valora in Solidity and leverage cloud providers (e.g., Google Cloud) to deploy and host backend API implementations. Much of our work is open source, including Valora (https://github.com/valora-inc/wallet). Although we are invested in specific technologies, we care more about a growth mindset and excitement around learning than experience with specific tools.
