Your main responsibilities will be:

  1. Technical Build: 

    • Contribute to the development and deployment of various blockchain related prototypes (note that our team is platform agnostic, and therefore prototypes may be built on various platforms)

    • Contribute to prototypes developed in conjunction with partners (within the UN and externally)

    • Manage the technical environments of such prototypes

  2. Technical Advisory:

    • Act as an advisor to the blockchain startups that UNICEF Ventures invest in, assist the teams in working through challenges, refer to them to additional resources, or act as a connector to mentors

    • Participate in ideation and design of blockchain prototypes. This may include, requirements gathering, architectural design, and technology roadmap
