Go Developer @ Ockam (A blockchain based IoT platform) - San Francisco

Ockam is creating a blockchain for connected devices to improve security and trust in device data.

Developers struggle to build reliable IoT systems. There are 10 billion IoT devices, and billions more come online every year. A fragmented ecosystem and limited tools make it hard deploy and secure device networks at scale. Ockam is a toolchain for developers that makes device identity, trust and interoperability as simple as it should be. Just as app developers leverage the ease of Heroku to deploy to the cloud, Twilio for communications, and Stripe for payments, they will build with Ockam to deploy reliable connected devices.
