It’s Time to Own Our Future

Role overview

We are looking for a talented and motivated Developer Relations Engineer to join Mina Foundation, the non-profit steward of Mina Protocol, the world’s lightest blockchain. We are building the first cryptocurrency protocol with a succinct blockchain, enabling greater access and ease of adoption than other protocols. This is a chance to join a small, collaborative team and have a ton of independence while working on fascinating cross-disciplinary problems in computing.

We’re working on technologies with the potential to reimagine social structures, and ramifications that could match the influence of the internet’s development. We believe it’s important to incorporate diverse perspectives from conception through realization.

The Role

Mina enables a new class of applications where users can securely and frictionlessly interact with the network while developers can add functionality to their applications in a few lines of client-side code. We’re looking for someone who wants to work hand-in-hand with a vibrant technical community, including developers, to create a new generation of cryptocurrency-enabled applications.

This is a chance to join a small, collaborative team and have a ton of independence while working on fascinating problems that span software engineering, systems design, cryptography, and computing. We also offer competitive compensation both in salary and equity as well as top-of-the-market benefits.

The role includes:

  • Being a point of contact for technical collaboration and guidance for partners and others in the developer ecosystem, including working closely with ecosystem partners to scope new projects, document requirements and collaborate on feature improvements
  • Collecting feedback to understand the needs and wants of the developer community; relaying that feedback to Product,Engineering and Marketing teams to help create features, products and positioning that engage, excite and empower the developer community to build on Mina.
  • Partnering with Marketing to participate in, build and maintain the Mina developer community and ecosystem by producing content, participating in events, panels, conferences, AMAs or other opportunities to reach an audience of developers.
  • Supporting the grant program by aiding in the evaluation of technical project grants, developing working processes and evaluating deliverables such as codebase from program participants
  • Helping ideate, build and grow categories of applications and platforms on top of the Mina blockchain by collaborating with the entire Mina community and other blockchain developers
  • Creating content that will help support and engage the developer community

The ideal candidate:

  • Is an excellent writer and empathetic communicator
  • Has experience working in a developer relations or external facing engineering capacity at a blockchain or cryptocurrency project, preferably one with a live mainnet
  • Has a network of developers building or interested in applications on top of public blockchains
  • Has experience with computer science, software engineering, or cryptocurrency applications
  • Has experience giving demos, speaking or presenting at conferences or meet-ups
  • Has experience working directly with users or potential users to collect feedback through various methods
  • Has some experience technical writing

However, there are no hard requirements; we’re more interested in learning about your individual background.

We're on a mission. To create a vibrant decentralized network and open programmable currency—so we can all participate, build, exchange and thrive. It’s Time to Own Our Future Living in today’s world requires giving up a lot of control. Every day, we give up control of intimate data to large tech companies to use online services. We give up control of our finances to banks and unaccountable credit bureaus. We give up control of our elections to voting system companies who run opaque and unauditable elections. Even when we try to escape this power imbalance and participate in blockchains, most of us give up control and trust to third parties to verify transactions. Why? Because running a full node requires expensive hardware, unsustainable amounts of electricity and tons of time to sync increasingly heavier and heavier chains. But it doesn’t have to be this way. That’s why we created Mina. In June of 2017, O(1) Labs kicked off an ambitious new open source project to design a layer one protocol that could deliver on the original promise of blockchain—true decentralization, scale and security. Rather than apply brute computing force, Mina offers an elegant solution using advanced cryptography and recursive zk-SNARKs. Over the past three years, our team together with our incredible community have launched and learned through several testnet phases. And now, at long last, we are proud to introduce Mina to the wider world. Here, developers can build powerful applications like Snapps3 (SNARK-powered apps) to offer financial services without compromising data privacy and programmable money that anyone can access trustlessly from their phones. And that’s just the beginning. While there will still be challenges to come, the world’s lightest, most accessible blockchain is ready to be powered by a whole new generation of participants. Here’s to a more efficient, elegant and fair future – for all of us. The Mina Foundation stewards the Mina Protocol – the world’s lightest blockchain, powered by participants. Our team is based in San Francisco, and we are funded by top investors (including Coinbase Ventures, Polychain, Metastable and Three Arrows). The Mina Foundation is overseen by a stellar team of directors who are industry-leading experts
