Established in 2017 under the brand name OmiseGO, the rebranded OMG Network is a subsidiary of Genesis Block Ventures. Our mission is to enable open financial services that are fast, affordable, and secure.

We are building a scalable network on the blockchain to enable affordable and real-time exchange of digital assets. We work with developers around the world to democratize access to digital financial services. Join us!

Why we need you

We are looking for experienced engineers who can apply reliability engineering principles to run our production services. We're scaling Ethereum to build financial services with our implementation of plasma. Our Infrastructure team works closely with the development teams to ensure we deliver secure and reliable services for our users.

  • Build, deploy, and maintain the blockchain services that form Plasma
  • Use cloud services to build environments used for code deployments
  • Monitor and optimise our applications to improve the reliability of our services and systems
  • Engage in and improve the entire lifecycle of services – from design through deployment and operations
  • Support services before they go live through activities such as system design consulting, developing software platforms and frameworks, capacity planning and launch reviews
