Take on Big Tech.

Join the Movement.

What we’re building

DFINITY is building The Internet Computer — a new technology stack that reinvents the internet as a computer that hosts secure software and open internet services. Developers will use the Internet Computer, powered by a network of independent data centers, to create websites, enterprise IT systems, and open versions of today's most popular internet services. Most importantly, the Internet Computer provides a means to reverse Big Tech's increasing monopolization of internet services, user relationships and data, and restore the Internet to its permissionless, innovative and creative roots.

Our Team

You will work alongside a world-class technical & research team who value out-of-the-box thinking and embrace a highly collaborative environment. We’re supportive of our engineers and researchers being active and speaking in their technical communities globally.

Our core R&D and Operations teams are growing fast. DFINITY has attracted some of the industry’s foremost minds to work on entirely new concepts in public blockchain. Led by Chief Scientist Dominic Williams, designer of Threshold Relay and PSC chains, the team also includes Timo Hanke, the creator of AsicBoost, Ben Lynn, the “L” in BLS Cryptography, and Andreas Rossberg, co-creator of WebAssembly.

Our Values

  • Be bold and relentless
  • Demand excellence
  • Be authentic
  • Act as one team
  • Value our people
We are bold and unrelenting in our mission to conjure the Internet Computer, which will transform how we build IT systems, including websites, enterprise systems, mass market internet services, financial systems, governance and legal systems, and more. We innovate and push the boundaries of cryptography, distributed computing, virtual machine technology, protocol design, languages, and other computer science. We continually improve our engineering and processes. Our aim is to transform the future and create a better world and we don't deviate from our mission.


The DFINITY Foundation oversees research centers in Palo Alto, San Francisco, and Zurich. In addition, we have select team members working in remote locations across North America, Europe and Asia.

Open Positions
Security Alert: Recently, we've seen a marked increase in phishing scams on third-party job boards — where an individual impersonating a DFINITY team member persuades job-seekers to send confidential information and/or payment. As good practice, please continue to be vigilant regarding fraudulent messages or fake accounts impersonating DFINITY employees. If you need to confirm the legitimacy of a position, please reach out to [email protected].
