About IOV Labs
IOV Labs is on a mission to provide the next generation of fintech innovators with the decentralized tools and technology to build a new global economy.

IOV Labs develops, promotes, and supports the RSK Blockchain, a Bitcoin merge-mined smart contract platform - the most secure smart contract platform in the world. IOV Labs also develops the RSK Infrastructure Framework (RIF) to provide our partners with everything they need to build decentralized apps and new Open Finance services on the RSK Blockchain.

Every day our teams come to work to build a more decentralized world, for a freer and fairer future.

About the Role
We are looking for a Technical Team Leader to lead a team of high qualification and technical excellence for one of the most challenging projects in the Bitcoin and FinTech industry worldwide.

RSK (Rootstock) is an open-source, decentralized, and peer-to-peer network that brings smart contracts to the Bitcoin ecosystem. It is the first one to provide the possibility of running Ethereum smart contracts in Bitcoin, using bitcoin as its native cryptocurrency, and leveraging Bitcoin's hashing power.
RSK is one of the most exciting projects in the crypto and blockchain space!
The RSK Interoperability team is responsible for building services and protocols that will integrate RSK with other crypto economies, such as Ethereum or Binance Chain. It maintains and evolves bridges that let users transfer assets (ERC-20 tokens, NFTs, etc) back and forth between RSK and other blockchains, giving Dapp developers the ability to bring their token-based services to the RSK ecosystem.

    • Help with design and code reviews. Ensure good engineering practices are being applied.
    • Learn about blockchain, crypto, Ethereum and Bitcoin, working on one of the most exciting  open-source projects in the blockchain industry.
    • Collaborate with people all over the world.
