Software Engineer

Mesh is building a multi-sided, end-to-end, cross-asset DeFi platform designed to fundamentally disrupt the way global Financial and Capital Markets operate and are accessed.

Mesh is unique in the market today as it delivers an optimised ecosystem to all market participants: from traditional market insiders like Investment Banks and Institutional Investors, to the more informal OTC market, which has historically been excluded from direct access to the primary sources of capital.

Mesh compresses, streamlines and optimises the services currently provided by a number of traditional market gatekeepers. To date, innovation in this sector has occurred within compartmentalised market verticals such as individual Banks, exchange software providers, CSDs and other industry silos. 

So, if disruption wakes you up, and being part of a movement gets you going, Mesh might just be the home for you.

We believe that learning never stops, that curiosity fuels creativity and that markets are formed on trust. Because we know that what we’ve set out to achieve will not come easy, but it will be worth it.
