Job Description

About Puzzle:

Puzzle is a team of UX, product, cryptography, and distributed systems experts who came from industries like big tech, cleantech, gaming, art/event tech, & gov tech. In Puzzle's collective experience building services in those industries like food delivery, we shared a feeling that we were effectively making the world a worse place. The services were valuable, but the business model continued the trend of “Own Nothing, Be Happy” -- one of our generation's biggest puzzles.

Inspired in the wake of ConstitutionDAO and what's possible with onchain orgs, we believe that there is a more dynamic collective capitalism that's possible with more onchain users, onchain orgs, network businesses, and widespread privacy technology.

We're focused at the intersection of privacy technology, onchain users and onchain orgs by building a suite of products on top of blockchains such as wallets, multisigs, DeFi, SDKs, and hidden information games. Puzzle is a leader in zk & privacy consumer products being the first ever grantees for consumer applications from Aleo, Aztec, Espresso and more. Puzzle has raised $4M from Bain Capital Crypto and from 6MV --- one of the top VC's in the ZK space and one of the top VC's in the web3 consumer products space respectively.

About the Role:

As the Developer Relations Lead, your role will be two-fold: a full-stack coder and a supportive educator. As the lead for developer relations, you will be the first point of contact for anyone using the Puzzle Wallet & Puzzle SDK to develop zkGames or applications who needs support. You will need to understand the intricate world of ZK/blockchains and how the Puzzle multiparty privacy stack abstracts and assists in building. You will need to build full-stack zkGames and applications with Puzzle Wallet & Puzzle SDK to improve on our stack and effectively disseminate this knowledge in tutorials/documentation. This is an incredible opportunity to lead an initiative where you get to work at the intersection of exciting deep technical work and direct impact work helping people grow their businesses and personal skills.

Requirements:

  • Share in the internet values: A belief in open & free information/markets, a belief in meritocracy and opportunity for all, and a belief in the existence of a plurality of systems or beliefs concurrently coexisting.
  • Share our company values of Good, Safe, Real, Wild:
    • 💖 Good: be user centric and empathetic -- not just in it for the $$ -- care about building something that impacts people positively -- care about inventing and optimizing your product like a craftsman

    • 🌟 Real: No BS, no tricks, no schemes -- honesty and transparency is the only policy
    • 🧩 Wild: Risk-taking, exploratory, iconoclastic, innovative, builder

  • 🏎️ Speed: Action produces information. Fast can learn from experience while slow can only theorize. Those who ship quickly can improve quickly. As a lead, you will be responsible for owning the Puzzle SDK & multiparty privacy tutorials and developer docs -- acting on these principles accordingly. 

  • Ownership & Collaboration: In this role, you get the vision and then get to create the strategy, iterate and take ownership of building out our tutorials and products with speed. You must also be a team player who enjoys working across different teams and user journeys as is the nature of this product.
