Software Development Engineer in Test

Fluence is a decentralized serverless platform & computing marketplace powered by blockchain economics. Fluence is a global, permissionless, scalable, and secure alternative to centralized cloud computing platforms.

Using Fluence, developers can build and deploy natively decentralized applications to a network of compute providers where providers range from professional data centers to home computers. Providers compete on price and performance and constantly prove that they serve applications to earn rewards.

Fluence is powered by a cryptographic token which serves as both collateral for provider participation and as a monetary incentive. Providers earn both the Fluence token and payment origin (usually stablecoin) for serving applications.
