About Berachain:

Berachain is a high-performance, EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) compatible, Layer 1 blockchain built on the Cosmos SDK. We're a young, world-class team of experts in computer science, type theory, economic game theory, risk management and enterprise development. Our team combines traditional experience in building and scaling teams at technology companies like Apple, Coinbase, IBM and Y-Combinator with crypto native experience from some of DeFi 2.0’s most impactful protocols. We're all highly passionate about Web3, Toybox and building infrastructure to bring decentralized finance to the masses. Our core engineering team is based in Toronto. Here at Berachain, you’ll be joining a world-class team of experienced founders, engineers and researchers passionate about designing sustainable economic and blockchain systems. We’re well funded by a group of leading digital asset investors, hedge funds, centralized exchange venture arms and strategic angels. 

We are looking for self-starters and mission driven individuals to join us as we build the future of decentralized finance. The ideal candidate for this role takes initiative and ownership over their work, thrives in a fast-paced and highly collaborative in-person environment, and is capable of rapidly adapting to evolving needs as required.

The eco lead would work closely with Smokey to bring experienced teams and novel primitives to the Berachain ecosystem, engaging with groups at the earliest stages in their development and identifying opportunities to play a key role in the Berachain ecosystem. The ideal candidate works closely with existing teams in the eco to identify opportunities for collaboration, while bringing strong builders from other chains to the Bera ecosystem and driving TVL and user growth within Berachain as a whole.

We have a STRONG preference for in-person role at our offices in Toronto, with exceptions made in extreme cases. The ideal candidate will demonstrate their ability to generate opportunities for the Berachain ecosystem prior to joining the team. An ideal candidate has likely led business development and partnership initiatives at a major L1 or leading DeFi protocol in the past.

  • Serve as the first point of contact / onboarding for teams exploring the Berachain ecosystem
  • Identifying synergies between the chain’s natural infrastructure (proof of liquidity, DeFi infra, EVM on Cosmos etc) and potential DApps uniquely utilizing Berachain in a manner which couldn’t be achieved in other chains
  • Aid in the curation and acceleration of “super DApps” that could become defining applications within the Berachain ecosystem (think GMX on Arbitrum, DeFi Kingdoms on Harmony once upon a time etc)
  • Work closely with native DApps and builders to develop partnerships and composable feature sets allowing for better collaboration within the ecosystem
  • Leverage existing networks and the Berachain brand to attract the best and brightest builders to the chain, while spearheading Berachain deployments for existing blue-chip DApps on other chains.
  • Collaborate with engineering teams to define and prioritize product features and requirements in accordance to DApp needs, ensuring they align with the overall product vision and strategy.
  • Develop and maintain a deep understanding of the blockchain market and competition, and use this knowledge to inform product decisions.
  • Work cross-functionally with design, engineering, marketing, and other teams to ensure successful product launches and ongoing product improvement.
