Job Description:

About AcalaAcala's mission is to build and nurture the autonomous financial infrastructure of the decentralized web. Delivering on this mission will bring more financial accessibility, opportunity, and prosperity to everyone on the planet through a new, open financial system.Our core project is the Acala Network itself, which we expect to become the de facto DeFi parachain and stablecoin of the Polkadot ecosystem. Polkadot provides the underlying trust primitives to our parachain, upon which we've built our suite of financial primitives including; Multi-collateralized Stablecoin; Trustless Staking Derivatives, and Unified Decentralized Exchange. These primitives will be used by us and other teams to power open DeFi innovations, and burn away all need for the parasitic intermediaries that inhabit almost every conventional trust-based financial system.We have secured our support from eminent backers like Polychain, Coinbase Venture, Pantera and many more. We're still preparing Acala's parachain launch, so there's no better time to join our mission and be a part of the future that we're building.

Our platform consists of; Rust-based blockchain modules; an EVM of Solidity-based smart contracts; and a variety of other Fullstack elements built with Typescript / React / Node.js.
