  • Experience with various talent acquisition tools, applicant tracking systems, and data-driven recruitment metrics (WorkDay experience a plus)

While a strong understanding of web3, blockchain, and cryptocurrency space isn’t required, a passion for innovation and a genuine interest in learning about the space is.
