We are looking for a colleague who is passionate about humanities, cares for the people living in this city, and is interested in using technology and data to drive social change.


Job Description

You will be involved in the Research and Development activities of decentralized fintech for philanthropy, social impact investment and other types of sustainable finance. The technology platform is initially funded by a Cyberport Entrepreneurship Grant and recently adopted by the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Fund. The technology protocols supporting the platform rely on crypto-economic mechanisms that help financial transactions to be consistently based on social and environmental outcomes. We describe this adaptive impact financing mechanism as an alpha-bond.

We are seeking research talents with combined scientific and engineering backgrounds as domain experts who will be designing social and environmental data models to be implemented in the alpha bonds, and consistently communicate with systems engineers for
technology deployment. We believe that this entire R&D process will face significant scientific uncertainty, and will make considerable contributions to the future of crypto-economics and sustainable finance.
