Software Engineering Lead
At Redbelly, we aspire for a world where everyone, everywhere has equal access to the economic infrastructure they need to improve their lives and are hard at work building our revolutionary open finance platform built on distributed ledger technology to deliver on that vision. Our purpose is to make financial relationships fair, efficient and useful for everyone. We aim to make distributed ledger technology consumable to users and businesses in meaningful ways that improve the way they transact.
At the heart of the Redbelly platform lies our novel Democratic Byzantine Fault Tolerant (DBFT) consensus algorithm developed under the leadership of our CTO, Associate Professor Dr Vincent Gramoli in collaboration with The University of Sydney and CSIRO’s Data61.
While we are immensely proud of our achievements to date which, among others, include an unprecedented consensus performance of 100,000 TPS with 100 nodes tolerating up to 33 byzantine nodes, a deterministic consensus translating to quasi finality and a highly secure blockchain that does not fork, our gaze remains firmly on the future and on the numerous leading edge technological challenges we will have to overcome in order to realise our ambition.
To make this possible, we see ourselves first and foremost as a product company where passionate product, engineering and delivery people work and ideate collaboratively as part of autonomous product teams to unleash the full potential of our technology to solve real-world problems for real businesses through captivating user experiences.
