Olive is hiring!

Olive is a fork of Chia Network, with 1.4% of Chia prefarm. Olive is in the talks with multinational startups NGOS in mental health on incorporating Olive into their payments and daily operationsWe believe that anyone should be able to farm and that cryptocurrency should be easier to use and more secure than cash. That means we need people who want to create internet class user experience on the most secure blockchain and smart transaction platform created so far.

Many on the Olive team are located in the SF Bay Area but remote is fine as we have people all over the world - Keybase, GitHub, and Zoom are how we work. Geographic restrictions, if any, will be noted in a job specification.
