The Solid project

项目介绍

Job description

More than a decade of Big Data thinking has shown that there are no technological limits to how much data we can store in one place. Simultaneously, it has uncovered all the economical, societal, and ethical limitations inherent to such unprecedented centralization of data. The Solid project (https://solidproject.org/) tackles these issues by giving people back control over their own data, thereby re-enabling data-driven innovation.

Are you passionate about the Web and interested in working on decentralized knowledge graph technologies? Join our team to work on the next phase of the Web! Under the supervision of prof. Ruben Verborgh, expert in Solid and decentralized data, you can contribute to the Solid ecosystem by tackling some of the most pressing challenges, such as interoperability, scalability, and developer experience.

We especially encourage applications by candidates from diverse groups; all are welcome in our team.
