R3 is an enterprise blockchain software firm working with a broad ecosystem of more than 300 participants across multiple industries from both the private and public sectors to develop on Corda, its open-
source blockchain platform, and Corda Enterprise, a commercial version of Corda for enterprise usage.
As a Solutions Engineer, you will offer deep technical knowledge to help our clients and partners create new designs and solutions using the latest capabilities of Corda.
This includes assisting them with the design, development, deployment, and integration, of Corda applications, all with the perspective of getting sustainable solutions into production in the shortest possible time.
To support these goals, you’ll also be helping define and build the team’s tool-kit of reusable architectural patterns, software, and support guides.
The enterprise blockchain space is rapidly developing, opening numerous opportunities to define solutions for problems that no one has solved yet.
We don’t expect that you’re already a Corda expert, but you should have a relevant background in software development, architecture, or deployment.
The role can span a variety of levels of experience and skill backgrounds, but this very much a hands-on design and development role, and you should expect to be continuously learning as Corda evolves.
Most of our Solutions Engineering activities are externally-facing, so you’ll need to work with clients and partners. You will gather detailed requirements, help design and implement solutions, and present the results to all relevant stakeholders.
You’ll also be responsible for providing timely, and actionable, information to the R3 Product Management team to help them assess, and prioritise, future Corda platform features and capabilities.
While the role is nominally based in one of small number of strategic locations, you will need to be able to travel in order to work with clients and partners.
Solutions Engineer is an individual contributor role, but the team is growing rapidly and there will be opportunities to lead development activities within the team and to mentor new members.
based applications. This includes software, tools, documentation, and training.
You must demonstrate high levels of proficiency in software development tasks, ideally in Kotlin, Java, or other JVM-based languages, as Kotlin and Java development skills are preferred for the role.
