Site Reliability Engineer / Production Gatekeeper

Bring cheaper and more reliable mobile Internet to everyone

Why the world needs our mobile connectivity exchange

Mobile connectivity is a scarce resource for most people. While it takes the average American about 30 minutes of work to afford 500 MB of mobile connectivity, it takes 40 hours for a Mexican citizen to afford the same thing. Mexico is representative of the rest of the world. Even outside of emerging countries, when people travel, they either have to pay roaming fees or face the friction of dealing with local carriers.

Something has to change in the telecom space, and our proposition is a unified exchange on which actors such as carriers, Mobile Virtual Network Operators, IoT providers, phone makers and many more can trade connectivity to drive prices down and enable new experiences for users and businesses. Our platform uses the Stellar blockchain to prove that every transaction made on our exchange is authentic.
