About the Company
COMPANY Qadre Limited is a fast-scaling blockchain company, using in-house technology to enable trust online. The technology was developed from scratch to avoid the architectural mistakes of cryptocurrency and allow for the engineering of new products for the public and private sectors. The team has worked on some of the earliest and most innovative blockchain projects to date, and is using this expertise to build enterprise-grade solutions that establish identity, security, and autonomy online. The technical work at Qadre is highly innovative and therefore we look for candidates with not just the greatest technical talent, but also a passion for solving problems and addressing the endemic inefficiencies, opaqueness, and the absence of trust that exist on a global scale.
