    Build the Protocol for Decentralized Derivatives

    Role overview

    The rise of blockchains has enabled anyone to own and transfer assets across an open network without needing to trust any external parties. Unlike existing financial architecture, blockchains are freely and equally available worldwide. This has led to a large and rapidly increasing number of digital assets existing on the blockchain. Many centralized and decentralized platforms designed to facilitate the efficient exchange of these assets already exist, and more are in development. Such platforms allow investors to take long positions in various assets. However, it is currently very difficult or impossible to take more complex financial positions.

    We allow the creation of entirely new asset classes which derive their value from underlying blockchain-based assets. Derivatives allow investors to achieve superior risk management with their portfolios, and open up new avenues for speculation. Derivatives also increase market efficiency for the underlying asset by aiding in price discovery and allowing individuals to express more complex opinions on price and volatility. We also provide advantages over traditional derivatives by eliminating the need for a regulated central clearing house, providing global and equal access, and allowing users full control of their funds at all times.

    RESPONSIBILITIES:

    • Work across the entire stack to build, test and ship new user facing products on top of our protocol
    • Create user experiences that are simple, performant and reliable
    • Work together with multi-functional teams to develop the best overall product

    REQUIREMENTS:

    • You have a depth of technical experience and have demonstrated excellence through previous work
    • You write secure, efficient, high quality code
    • You are a fast learner who can quickly master new technologies

    NICE TO HAVES:

    • You've worked on high quality products in the finance or security space
    • You have experience with Node, React, Redux, and/or Postgres
    • You have an understanding of blockchain technology
