Head of Product, Flow Protocol/Principal Product Manager
Flow is the blockchain for builders. Created by Dapper Labs, the team behind CryptoKitties, Flow blockchain is designed for a new generation of consumer apps, games, and the digital assets that power them. Flow helps developers build the kinds of applications people want to use, with a focus on consumer-friendly onboarding and the ability to handle mainstream scale.
We are looking for a Principal Product Manager to be the Head of Product for Flow Protocol, the core engine of the network, reporting to Dieter Shirley, inventor of Flow and CTO of Dapper Labs. You'll have a voice as a core member of the leadership team and a direct line to Roham, Dapper Labs' CEO as well.
As the ideal candidate, you are deeply technical and have a deep understanding of distributed systems. You're either a blockchain expert already or can quickly get an appreciation for the realities a product network like Flow faces in a decentralized environment with byzantine actors after some Googling. You have a proven track record in delivering well architected technical products which operate reliably and with high performance at scale. You are a passionate advocate and proponent of open source software and empowered teams and are ready to be an active evangelist and pioneer in open architectures and decentralized systems.
You don't need to be a crypto expert but be ready to become one. Here is some reading to get you excited from one of our investors, A16Z:
