  • Build an innovative blockchain as the foundation for an entire ecosystem of consumer applications, starting with games, collectibles, and the apps that interact with them
  • Defy accepted wisdom on the scalability of blockchain platforms
  • Design, develop, and deploy new systems that enhance throughput, latency, availability, and security
  • Apply cutting-edge research and new developments to daily work
  • Ensure that our work is ethical and values-driven to create a positive impact on the world

Does this describe you?

  • Experience with technical leadership of engineering teams including mentorship and coaching
  • Experience in blockchain and/or decentralized architectures, consensus and/or cryptographic systems
  • Demonstrated technical design capabilities, architecting complex technical features despite ever-evolving product requirements
  • Focused on delivering impact and results to the makers and consumers who will benefit from this new ecosystem
