DevOps at OpenLaw



Posted 92 days ago

OpenLaw is a ConsenSys spoke that is building next-generation smart legal agreements. We’re using blockchain technology to reimagine the future of commerce and the $160 billion transactional legal market.

About Us

At its core, OpenLaw is a multi-module blockchain-based protocol and markup language to prepare, manage, and execute smart legal agreements. Using the OpenLaw protocol, you can seamlessly execute a range of commercial transactions by generating binding natural-language agreements, storing the signed contracts on a blockchain, and having those agreements interact with smart contracts written in code.

We use Scala as our main programming language with JavaScript / React for our frontend. Our backend uses LevelDB, and Ethereum to store, search, and verify data. We are product-driven and committed to open source. That means our end goal is to the deliver the best and fastest product possible for our users and to do so in a community-driven manner.
