Engineering Manager, Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol
Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) provides a universal, open standard for developers to build secure services and applications that can send messages, transfer tokens, and initiate actions across multiple blockchains. Our mission is to become the standard protocol for cross-chain transfer of data and token value with best-in-class security, reliability, and developer experience. CCIP extends the Chainlink mission of connectivity by connecting hundreds of blockchains together.
At Chainlink Labs, we’re committed to the key operating principles of ownership, focus, and open dialogue. We practice complete ownership, where everyone goes the extra mile to own outcomes into success. We understand that unflinching focus is a superpower and is how we channel our activity into technological achievements for the benefit of our entire ecosystem. We embrace open dialogue and critical feedback to arrive at an accurate and truthful picture of reality that promotes both personal and organizational growth.
