We are looking for a world-class network engineer wanting to join an extraordinary innovator in the blockchain space. The role offers the opportunity to make a pioneering contribution in an industry-leading, high-growth Fintech business, developing one of the leading distributed ledger technology platforms, Corda (https://corda.net). Distributed Ledger technology brings brand new challenges to the role of the network engineer, with networking and cloud service integration coming to the forefront of business and technical strategy.
 
Our company, R3 (https://r3.com), was started 3 years ago when we persuaded the world’s largest banks to come on a journey to explore how blockchain could solve problems in Finance. The company has a stellar track record, a collaborative and friendly culture, 48 global banks as investors, and a very smart team in the disciplines of distributed engineering, cryptography, law, finance and project management. We’re based in London, New York, and Singapore.
 
We’re making Corda more valuable by building  Corda Network, an internet of Corda nodes which will allow any organisation to trade with any other, using a range of ‘distributed applications’ being built by our 200+ partner network (https://marketplace.r3.com) on both internet and dedicated connectivity. The Corda Network integrates in-house, cloud-based and on-premise customer facilities.
 
You will play the lead role in designing the network architecture for Corda Network. You will have deep enterprise infrastructure knowledge and network integration skills together with strong communication and the ability to convince others of your ideas. You will be able to collaborate effectively with development, operations and production support teams. You will have excellent analytical and problem-solving skills and will enjoy working in an atmosphere of high enthusiasm, passion and independent thinking.
 
You will take a hands-on role in network build-out, working with a mix of internal and external engineering and operations teams, including our cloud infrastructure partners and some of the most progressive implementation teams, and you will be expected to ensure they are all working to a common network architecture and design.
