A little about us:

Flow is the blockchain for builders and creators. 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.

The Flow Ecosystem team is an entrepreneurial collective of ecosystem and business architects, builders and developers who share a passion for blockchain technology and the new kinds of experiences it enables. Our people are our greatest strength, our community is our greatest asset. Our diverse team flourishes in a symbiotic environment where personal relationships and professional networks intersect and collaborate for a greater cause. We value our culture and community above all else; regardless of where you came from or what you studied, your role here will necessitate both a high level of creativity, systems thinking, and collaborative problem-solving.

This role is for you if:

  • You are highly analytical -- able to structure and dive deeply into strategic and operational problem spaces. You are able to distill and anchor on first principles.
  • You are a strong communicator -- skilled at relaying complex topics across a variety of audiences (executive and peer-level, technical and non-technical). We are remote-first, so will place a premium on strong written communication skills.
  • You are a natural collaborator -- able to build strong relationships, and skilled bringing teams together to drive impact
  • You have a passion for solving tough problems and a desire to do whatever it takes to get things done -- strong ability to work effectively in a highly-dynamic environment is a huge plus.

A little about you:

  • 3-7 years of research and analytics work in research or investment management or a high-growth environment and dynamic industry - professional services experience preferred.
  • Strong analytical skills with practical experience of turning data and analytics into actionable insights, using SQL, Tableau and at least one programming language (e.g. R, Python, Java, Ruby, Scala/Spark, or Perl).
  • Professional experience working closely alongside engineering and business teams in blockchain and other Web3 technologies.
  • Deep fascination with Web3 and want to help build the future of the internet.
