Remote Senior Ruby on Rails Developer

June 7, 2024

Job Description

We launched Sedition with the goal of building a platform for digital art collecting. Since 2011, over a thousand artists, including Tracey Emin, Bill Viola, Mat Collishaw, Yoko Ono, and Universal Everything, have showcased their work on Sedition. More than 100,000 art enthusiasts have joined to enjoy their favorite artists’ creations.

While we’ve made a strong start, this is just the beginning. The emergence of NFTs in 2014 offered a real solution for digital ownership, allowing collectors to own digital assets without a third party. This technology is crucial for our vision, and we are excited to implement it for our community. The opportunities are immense, but so is the work ahead. We need your help.
