Striga is building compliant crypto and banking infrastructure for European businesses. This covers the scope of safely custodying crypto assets on behalf of users, enabling trading by sourcing liquidity and connection to banks for issuing IBANs (European checking accounts) and Visa Cards that can spend against a users' balance held on Striga's ledger. The company has slowly grown over the last 5 years, tackling one of the biggest challenges in today's crypto industry - Regulation.
Striga is the very first company to win a regulatory license after a year long debacle with the Estonian regulator and is HQ'd in Estonia (Present a nice opportunity to eventually move to Estonia as well!).
A business like this was practically impossible to build without complying with the law and this presents a unique host of engineering challenges in translating legal text into functional code.
Develop, upgrade and maintain Striga's core banking and ledgering infrastructure - This includes connections to Visa, Banks, Crypto Custodians, Exchanges and challenging day to day logic puzzles in maintaining funding flows within the designated walled garden per user.

Experience working with Digital Ocean, AWS, GCP or similar.
Experience with Docker, containerizing and CI/CD workflows, would be a great bonus

Entrepreneurship or startup experience.
Adept at writing technical documentation.
Experience working with crypto-currencies and/or other legacy financial systems.
