Blockchain Engineer - Remote
At Request, our mission is to interconnect isolated financial systems to create more efficient and inclusive economies. We are accomplishing this by building a completely decentralized and open network for transaction requests.
WE BUILD THE FUTURE OF INVOICING AND BUSINESS
Our core technology is an open-source protocol. It allows records of transactions to be easily stored and accessed. This shared network gives financial systems a shared language to communicate.
On top of this, we are building Request Invoicing, the biggest crypto-friendly invoicing application. Request users benefit from our unique payment detection solution: the reconciliation of invoices payments is 100% automated. CFOs, accountants, and auditors have the clearest financial view they could imagine.
Our upcoming priorities may include:
