What We Value

  • Strong engineering background, preferred in fields such as Computer Science, Mathematics, Software Engineering, Physics.
  • Familiarity with blockchain technology, storage systems, cloud infrastructure, cryptography libraries, and other technical tools.
  • Ability to work effectively in teams of technical and non-technical individuals.
  • Skill and comfort working in a rapidly changing environment with dynamic objectives and iteration with users.
  • Emotional intelligence and the consideration of your teammates.
  • The Ability to work across teams to engage project partners, deeply understand problems, and use teamwork to drive successful revenue generating outcomes.
