Job Title: Head of Engineering

Company Overview:

We believe:
  1. Most financial rails will run on blockchains.
  2. Most assets will live on blockchains.
  3. Users will not care about the underlying tech.

These beliefs drive their product vision.

We build a one-click checkout and account kit that enables dApps to offer a web2 experience.

Partners want to work with our company because our checkout reduces friction, and increases volume on their projects. Nearly all of these partners also use our account kit, where many of the onboarded funds are held.

By combining a sophisticated checkout protocol with an expressive account kit, our company can offer usability, security, and cost guarantees that its competitors cannot.

Our long term vision is to create a world where anyone can interact on-chain without ever realizing it’s crypto.

We have two key results towards this vision:
  1. Build the most efficient one-click checkout for crypto (a VERY hard problem to solve)
  2. Create the largest banking layer in the world (by leveraging our frictionless checkout)

If you are excited by radically ambitious projects, this could be a good place for you.

Company Achievements
  • ● Recruited all-star team of engineers
  • ● Signed some of the largest projects in DeFi
  • ● Successful early rollout with Degen – a prominent project in crypto
  • ● Raised $10m
  • Position Overview:
  • We are starting to experience tremendous growth and are looking for a leader to take our team from 1-10. You will lead our engineering team in its entirety, scaling it from 3 people to >20.
  • You should have a strong pattern recognition for world class software and engineering leadership.
  • You have the ability to recruit world class engineering talent.
  • You should have had a senior role designing financial rails that processed (at least) >$100m annually.
  • You should be hyper organized and structured.
  • Proficient in Javascript, Typescript, React, Node.js, Vue.js

Finally, our business will be very challenging technically to build. Our checkout protocol is an ultra difficult convex optimization problem and our account infrastructure is a first of its kind on-chain RBAC system. Our team members work long hours in person at our NYC HQ. Please doo not apply unless you want a real challenge.
