Company Reviews

Gem is an engineering-driven company, founded by an engineer CEO, and the Engineering team is easily the largest group in the company. We are building enterprise-scale distributed and decentralized systems with both battle-tested and cutting-edge technologies; we work heavily with databases, P2P protocols, containerization, network security, cryptography, and smart contracts. Thanks to a high bar for candidates and a culture of fervent information-sharing, our team has an incredible breadth of knowledge and I have learned more during my time at Gem than anywhere else in my career.
