Senior Research Engineer

Fetch.AI is a world-changing project, a “decentralised digital world” where autonomous software agents act on the behalf of their owners, or themselves, to get useful economic work done.

We are a dynamic, fast-growing international team of experts and forward-thinking technology enthusiasts working on the convergence of blockchain, AI and multi-agent systems. We are building technology for both today and tomorrow - a collective super-intelligence on top of decentralized economic internet built with a highly scalable next-generation distributed ledger technology. Combined with machine learning, this delivers the predictions and infrastructure to power the future economy.

Do you like challenges and want to work on cutting edge state-of-the-art technology that will define how we will interact? Come and join us.

Job description

This position is focused on the development of the infrastructure required to create autonomous agents and multi-agent systems that operate on top of decentralised distributed ledger technology.

You will join us as an independent developer, with programming and software engineering expertise, and will be required to collaborate with people from various different backgrounds (e.g. economy, multi-agent systems, cryptography, etc).

There will be opportunities to develop your ideas, contribute to patents and publications, attend relevant conferences, and play a significant role in the progression of Fetch.

  • Agent architectures; Multi-Agent programming, tools, languages, and frameworks
  • Ontologies, ontological reasoning, semantic web technologies
  • Agent simulation technologies
  • Game theory, game theoretical analysis, mechanism design
  • Computational models of economic / social interactions (e.g. negotiation, auction, voting, social choice/welfare)
  • Computational models of trust, deception, collusion, and reputation management
  • Automated reasoning, formal languages, rule-based and logic-based systems
  • Agent communication languages, communication protocol


  • Design, develop and evaluate algorithms, processes and systems, based on existing proposals or from scratch, using various different paradigms as required (e.g. object-oriented, statistical, logic-based, etc).
  • Contribute to the development of APIs, SDKs, libraries for Multi-Agent Systems.
  • Collaborate and communicate effectively with people from various different backgrounds (e.g. machine learning, economy, logic, security, etc) who may not necessarily share the same expertise as you.
  • Report and present findings and developments, including status and results, clearly and efficiently, verbally and more importantly in writing.
  • Have a critical and open mind, make suggestions and engage in team collaborations.
