We are one of the smallest and most impactful teams in crypto. Normally, we are based out of Brooklyn in New York City but the pandemic forced us to go remote for the last year. We hope to come back to a physical office as soon as it's safe.
Our engineering team consists of developers with skills across the stack, from Smart Contracts to Frontend. The team grew substantially (to 6 full-timers and 2 interns) in the last few months and now needs a dedicated leader to exclusively focus on its well-being. You will oversee all engineering activities - including hiring, staffing and working closely with the rest of the company to deliver high quality products.
