You will join our small, fiery team on our mission to create open access to building wealth.

We're looking for someone with a thirst for knowledge and interested in working with the most exciting financial innovation ever created: bitcoin.

Bitcoin is important because it enables wealth to be stored with an individual without need for a third party. Its fundamental use-case as a store of value with a predictable monetary policy is having profound implications on freeing individuals into financial sovereignty.
