At cLabs, the team working on the open source platform Celo, our mission is to build a financial system that creates the conditions for prosperity for all.

Celo aims to remove the barriers for large-scale adoption of cryptocurrencies as means-of-payment. Using a novel address-based encryption algorithm, the Celo protocol makes sending money as easy as sending a text. Additionally, Celo uses stable-value tokens pegged to fiat currencies, like the US Dollar, to minimize volatility. Celo is an open protocol enabling many to participate in the system, even with a budget Android smartphone. The first application launched on the Celo platform, Valora, is a social payments and money transfer app, aimed at developing markets.

cLabs is seeking a Developer Relations Engineer to join our Developer Relations team. As a Developer Relations Engineer partner you will be key to building excitement and interest in the Celo Developer Platform through producing interesting and relevant projects and programs that guide developers of varying experience levels and backgrounds to the Celo Ecosystem.
