The main goal of it is to bring together the community of people who are digging into Blockchain on college campuses, whether it’s about teaching Blockchain classes, adding co-curricular activities, or supporting students starting Blockchain companies. This next generation at school now will be the one to really grab hold of the new opportunities presented with Blockchain and we want to bring this ecosystem together. While there is a list of speakers, ideally this event will be more of an open forum showcasing people from all campuses around Boston talking about the state of Blockchain education and interest at their college for others to learn from or join together to collaborate.

Graduate Data Scientist/Engineer
Looking for graduates with the flexibility to take on a diverse set of roles within the company, as required by the business. Some of the principle tasks include:
-Develop the core software applications that underpin our solutions:
-Work as part of our team of expert software developers and data scientists;
-Use emerging and open source technologies such as SPARK, Hadoop, and Lucene;
-Collaborate on scalability issues involving access to massive amounts of data and information.
-Work onsite with clients to solve business problems in the area of fraud, compliance and financial crime:
-Understand patterns of criminal behavior and determine how to best implement a system to detect them;
-Conduct in‐depth data analysis, using market‐leading technologies and coding languages, to look for inappropriate and criminal behavior;
-Automate analysis to proactively alert on high risk activity on an on‐going basis;
-Communicate your results back to the client in a clear and concise style.
-Take on ad‐hoc tasks as required for the running of a small, yet rapidly expanding business.
We are looking for individuals who are keen to grow into the role. As a small company we can take a much more personal approach than many graduate pipelines, while still providing structured development and regular feedback. The role has the opportunity for staff to focus on the areas where they are strongest and have most interest, and has potential for rapid, merit based, advancement. We strongly believe that hands on experience is the most effective way of becoming expert in technologies and we provide comprehensive mentoring to enable and accelerate this process. Equally, we are committed to developing well rounded staff and provide access to any formal training required.
Our Tech Hub is located in South Boston, but some work might occur on our clients’ sites in other states.

A fully immersive, full-time educational program. A three-week sprint with one overarching goal … helping MIT students understand and achieve functioning at “entrepreneurial speed.”
Comprised of MIT founders and teams with new ideas and an itch to dive in fully on their startup ideas – many for the very first time – fuse students receive sophisticated and individualized mentorship from the Trust Center entrepreneurs-in-residence while also relying on the support of their fellow cohort members.
MIT fuse is all about workshops not lectures, and hard work not homework. It provides students with the chance to see if they like and thrive in the lifestyle of a startup, learning valuable skills including team dynamics, customer acquisition strategies, how to work fast and effectively, and how to pitch your company or idea.
During fuse, teams create preliminary products and services, talk to customers, and even take part in mock board meetings as a way of teaching them the need to be accountable in achieving their stated goals. All of this results in high-value learning opportunities that help guide the students on the path toward building a company.
FYI – 8 of the 27 teams in last year’s delta v cohort took part in MIT fuse
