Welcome to the Kraken Engineering Blog

Welcome to the new Kraken Engineering Blog. Engineering and technology is the life blood of our firm and our mission. Since its inception Kraken has been committed to building a crypto platform with the highest standards for security, performance and reliability.  

Over the years our people and systems have had to evolve under the enormous pressures of adoption and growth. In this blog we would like to share with you some insights into the technical challenges, solutions and strategies we are using to meet these challenges.

This blog will be written by and for engineers. We will strive to be as transparent as possible.  Feel free to let us know if there are topics you would like to discuss or questions you might have regarding our technology stack.

Kraken is committed to supporting blockchain engineers. In 2020, Kraken donated over $500,000 to top projects like BTCPay, Brink and Gitcoin. We also helped several blockchain developers find full-time employment. If you or someone you know is seeking to take their career to the next level, we encourage you to check out our grants page and careers page.
