Mirror is a smart contracts platform. We are leveraging blockchain technology to provide hedging and risk management tools that are more accessible, affordable, and globally available than their contemporary counterparts, and with minimized counterparty and clearing risk. Our vision is to realize the promise of the Bitcoin blockchain as a global, decentralized, cryptographically-assured fiduciary system. Headquartered in San Francisco, we are making peer-to-peer contracts, available to everyone everywhere.
We are looking for expert Qt interface engineers to help us develop high-quality cross-platform native apps that dynamically educate, instruct, and please users as they explore and interact with them.
