A bit about us:

What started as a few users, has turned into a global community that has collectively traded more than $3 billion of notional volume across 45,000+ trades and we're just getting started. This startup is pioneering DeFi-native derivatives and options infrastructure. They are building a capital-efficient DeFi options trading protocol that allows users to buy, sell, and create options on ERC20s. DeFi users and products rely on their smart contracts and interface to hedge themselves against DeFi risks or take speculative positions on different cryptocurrencies or tokens.

They believe that building an inclusive, fair, and open financial system is a problem that will be solved with a deep understanding of crypto, finance, security-focused engineering, and genuine empathy for users. Senior software engineers focusing on frontend contribute to our mission by owning the workflows and UX powered by their DeFi primitives. They are deeply curious about the reasons why users use their products and obsess over showing their value to the users through easy-to-understand UX. They are polyglot engineers who know how to use the best tools to deliver reliable, bug-free software with the most effective visualizations that enable their users to participate in a fair and open financial system. As early members, they will have a large stake in shaping the protocol and helping direct strategy and product execution.

  • Be responsible for the creation of financial products using their protocol.
  • Work closely with the engineering and research teams to synthesize and communicate market needs to inform product strategy.
