Is your dream to work with the currency of the future and do you want to have an influence on the financial system?
MakerDAO is a Start-up company, that continuously work towards developing the stable cryptocurrency: Dai. The company has several revolutionary and exciting projects in the making, with the common goal of making finance more transparent and efficient in a more ethical and moral manner. Today there are already several cryptocurrencies on the market, but it is challenging to employ them in relations to financial systems, for example like electronic payments, because cryptocurrencies often lack stability.

Because of this expansion they are searching for a passionate and talented QA Lead.

MakerDAO is a start-up company that supports the cryptocurrency Dai, which has been under development since 2015. Dai has a stable value (also known as a Stablecoin) of 1 US Dollar per Dai, and this cryptocurrency has proved, that it can stay relatively close to the Dollar despite of large fluctuations in the general cryptocurrency market. This is due to the constant process of securing Dai through other assets (it operates like the gold standard for regular currencies), and that a different currency; MKR responsibly operates and secures the system behind Dai. It is the investors of MKR that assure that the system always is sufficiently capitalized.
MakerDAO has offices worldwide and are now looking towards the possibility of establishing a main office in Denmark for a fund in charge of all activities in MakerDao. The company currently has approximately 50 employees, and that number is expected to grow substantially over the next couple of years.
