Why join Savvy?
Here are some of the benefits of being a member of the Savvy team
Work at the cutting edge of a technological revolution. At Savvy we wholeheartedly believe that the next generation of blockchain technologies present an opportunity to create a fairer and more equitable world. Blockchain gives us the opportunity to finally remove all the costs and control associated with the middle man and even central banks. This will not only drastically reduce fees for retailers and customers but speed up transaction times from days to a matter of minutes.
A fully remote and distributed start-up environment. Savvy is building a world-class engineering team. Our headcount has grown by 360% over the last 6 months. We are only able to achieve this by tapping into a global pool of blockchain professionals. This growth is both exciting and challenging, and as we learn to scale we will, of course, stay true to the values of decentralisation.
Deep technical challenges. The entire blockchain society is still in its infancy. Deploying the best people enables us to leverage the best technology. The Savvy tech stack is unique and a forerunner in the space. However, there is still plenty to be done before Savvy can scale to the order of millions or billions of users.
Continuous learning and personal development. Working with a global team on multiple projects youll be constantly exposed to new concepts, technologies and frameworks. We will be challenging you to stay at the top of your game.

We believe we have a unique set of core components that will enable us to be a leading brand in this expanding economy. To do this we need to be the fastest and the most agile. We work with velocity and rigour.

If that means cancelling your plans for a Friday night, then so be it.

We are building solutions to problems that most of society dont know even exist. To do this we need people who continue to strive to acquire a unique perspective and level of subject matter expertise.
