Join Our Team as a Crypto Research Analyst

  • Web 3 as the logical evolution of open source software, enabling everything that should be open source software to become open source software (via protocols orchestrated with a token)
  • DeFi as technology acquiring a native finance layer, and in turn, finance acquiring a native technology layer. We are less excited about chasing the latest yield farming or arbitrage opportunity — and will be more focused on novel financial products, networks and broader access to the promise and opportunities of crypto
  • New economic and cultural life forms changing old markets and creating new ones — e.g. DAOs and NFTs vs legal entities, institutions and contracts
  • Key support and scaling infrastructure relevant to the growth and success of the entire space including applications that help reduce barriers to entry and tooling for engineers
  • Being at the forefront of what is happening in crypto — be it doing research on L2 scaling solutions, the potential evolution of MEV, the future of PoW vs PoS L1s, novel governance mechanisms, protocol upgrade proposals, etc — you are an avid student of these (and more topics) and intellectual curiosity is one of your key trademarks
  • Working with our founders and networks / protocols on crypto economics, governance design, network allocations, etc
  • Whereas this is not an investment role, you should be able to translate your research in to insights and consumable knowledge for the broader investment team and our portfolio companies / networks
  • Publishing key research
  • A strong understanding of key technological, economic and governance aspects of crypto — in great detail down to protocol design and beyond
  • Self-(fire)starter — be able to run on your own, prioritize without much guidance
  • The ability to clearly articulate thoughts and opinions about markets, companies and networks / protocols, both in written and spoken form
  • Strong interpersonal skills — happy to work extensively within the team and with entrepreneurs
  • Native (or close to) English language skills both written and oral
  • The willingness to roll up your sleeves
  • Your CV
  • If applicable, a collection of links that best characterize your online presence
