Protocol Product Lead

Blockchain Headhunter is the pioneering recruitment & executive search agency in crypto, web3 and blockchain with 270+ placements for 75 clients since 2017.

The Client

The company is developing a protocol - fully collateralized, cryptocurrency-backed decentralized stable token for the ecosystem. The protocol will grow to encompass a variety of minting mechanisms controlled with granular minting limits that creates a dynamic stable token model which has never existed before.

The Role

The protocol seeks to recruit a Protocol Product Lead who will provide technical and strategic oversight to external organizations and contributors. The Protocol Lead is more than a product manager, and will be a visible leader in the development and innovation efforts of the Protocol. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience in taking new technology products to market, have a technical bent, and personal or professional experience in the decentralized finance space.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Develop and lead the product strategy and roadmap for one of the most successful decentralized finance products in the Cosmos ecosystem
  • Serve as primary operational contact for the protocol
  • Develop and prioritize product features, enhancements, and integrations that align with the project’s mission and goals.
  • Create and lead product development process, including user research, product design, testing, and launch.
  • Use data and analytics to inform product decisions and measure product performance, and adjust strategies as needed
  • Develop and maintain relationships with key stakeholders, including community members, vendors, and strategic partners.
  • Coordinate the development of protocol level documents and plans
  • Collaborate with external development teams to ensure that product development is aligned with technical feasibility, scalability, and security requirements.
  • Work with marketing and community teams to develop and execute go-to-market strategies and communication plans for new product releases and features.
  • Stay up-to-date with industry trends, competitors, and user feedback to ensure the project remains competitive and innovative.
  • Act as an evangelist for the project, presenting at conferences and events to promote the project and engage with the community.


  • 5+ years of experience in product management, engineering team management, or related roles.
  • Strong understanding of cryptocurrency and decentralized technology, including experience working with stablecoins. If you’ve never used a self-hosted wallet and connected to a defi protocol, this role probably isn’t for you
  • Experience working in decentralized and open-source environments.
  • Strong leadership and collaboration skills, with the ability to lead cross-functional teams and work closely with community stakeholders.
  • Strong communication and presentation skills, with the ability to effectively communicate complex concepts to technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Self-starter and entrepreneurial mindset
  • High risk tolerance
  • Awareness of the crypto regulatory environment
  • Strong social media presence is a plus
  • Comfortable with GitHub, CI usage, agile task management, and command line tools
  • Familiarity with the Cosmos ecosystem is a plus
