R3 is an enterprise blockchain software firm working with a broad ecosystem of more than 300 participants across multiple industries from both the private & public sectors to develop on Corda, its open-source blockchain platform, & Corda Enterprise, a commercial version of Corda for enterprise usage.
As a Solutions Engineer, you will offer deep technical knowledge to help our clients & partners create new designs & solutions using the latest capabilities of Corda. This includes assisting them with the design, development, deployment, & 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 & build the team's tool-kit of reusable architectural patterns, software, & 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 & skill backgrounds, but this very much a hands-on design & development role, & 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 & partners. You will gather detailed requirements, help design & implement solutions, & present the results to all relevant stakeholders. You'll also be responsible for providing timely, & actionable, information to the R3 Product Management team to help them assess, & prioritise, future Corda platform features & 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 & partners.
Solutions Engineer is an individual contributor role, but the team is growing rapidly & there will be opportunities to lead development activities within the team, & to mentor new members.
