What we are looking for

Crypto Lending is an innovative product that allows exchanges, asset managers, fintech apps, etc. to borrow capital against their crypto holdings. Crypto holders are currently underserved as very few regulated entities accept crypto assets as collateral. We think it’s our mission to bridge this gap and we want to do so by building back and front end products for our borrowers.

We are currently looking for an Engineering Manager to lead various initiatives and scale this team. You will be at the forefront of field development in delivering our crypto products, working closely with our capital markets team on business-driven development.

You will join an exciting, newly formed, crypto team that deeply cares about growing with people who question assumptions, have strong judgement, execute fast, take ownership, act responsibly, help the team advance and improve its standards.

  • Build both back-end and front-end stack from the ground up: you will build the underlying mechanism that regulates the loan LTV and manages funds
  • Build APIs that expose these logics
  • Build front-end tools on top of our APIs that our clients will use to request a new loan, open a new wallet, transfer funds, etc.
