We are looking for a DeFi analyst to support the growth of Notional’s ecosystem by identifying protocol integration opportunities and deriving business insights from the analysis of on-chain activity. You will be responsible for analyzing DeFi protocols, determining how these protocols should integrate with Notional, and providing recommendations for where Notional should allocate its resources based on your research and analysis.

  • Collaborate with the team on product strategy, future development objectives, and onboarding new collateral types.

What You Will Bring

  • Intellectual curiosity and a passion to contribute to the construction of a new financial system.
  • Strong technical skills. The ability to read code is required, the ability to write code is a plus.
  • A strong work ethic and the ability to operate independently.
