Backed by leading financial institutions, infrastructure providers and financial software providers, the company is delivering enterprise-grade solutions for post-trade services.

Digital Asset applies a rigorous customer-driven approach to deliver on our vision for a better global financial system, enabled by distributed ledger technology.

  • Our culture is "all-in" and rewards collaboration, integrity and excellence.
  • We value each other, what we do for our clients and how we do it.
  • Our mission is delivering breakthrough distributed ledger solutions.

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 are yet to contemplate and are driven by the opportunity to have impact, the following opportunity may be right for you.


The Solutions Engineering discipline seeks engineers to build real-world applications on top of our platform to help us solve our customers’ domain-specific problems. You will collaborate with Product Architects, other engineers, internal and external stakeholders to design and develop these systems. You can expect to work with traditional tooling as well as proprietary internal technology, including a new programming language. You will enable integration with new and existing customer systems. Your experience and feedback on real projects will influence the future design of the underlying platform.

Key Responsibilities

  • Describe our technology in detail to technical stakeholders and lead technical builds of potential new engagements.
