“It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up! Magazine Salt-n-Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine…”
Is blockchain real or just a figment of people’s imagination? Come help us discover the next great technology revolution…
At Figment, our mission is to create an Internet that is truly decentralized where users can freely interact, share, collaborate, and exchange goods and services in a trustless environment. We offer staking, middleware, and application layer solutions for token holders and developers investing in and building on Web 3 technologies. Together, we can build a better Internet.
About the Role
We are seeking a Blockchain Research Analyst to help support and grow our staking business division. Candidates should have a deep curiosity about the potential of blockchain and want to "go deep" on a small number of protocols to become Figment's resident expert on how they work, what is going on with their development communities, and what potential opportunities exist that may help us expand our relationships with customers. This is a cross-functional role which includes research, analysis, content creation, and ecosystem/governance participation.
This is a full-time remote first position. Figment has over 60 employees, speaking 7 native languages, and are located across North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia. Preference for location is Western Hemisphere due to the client-facing nature of role (between PST and EST time zones).
The protocol expertise you will develop supports our internal teams, including dev-ops, sales, and marketing. Your participation in the ecosystems and governance proposals of assigned protocols will help build Figment's credibility. As a fast-growing startup company, it's critical that you are comfortable working in an unstructured environment, dealing with uncertainty, minimal direction, and working across a range of projects and functional areas
Benefits & Impact
About Figment Networks
Figment Networks, a VC funded technology startup, is your key to Web 3: stake tokens, build applications, and participate in blockchain governance.
The founding team has over two+ decades started, built, and scaled four internet infrastructure related businesses. This deep experience in IP networking, data centers, cloud security, and databases combined with our passion for decentralization lead us to starting Figment Networks.
We want to build an organization that on the one hand provides needed infrastructure & software to blockchain networks/communities, and on the other hand serves the needs of institutional and large token holders. To do this we are focusing on operational best practices (including security), software tools, research, and legal/regulatory compliance.
Our data center and technical operations are based in Toronto, Canada and we are building a decentralized organization with team across North America, Western Europe, and Southeast Asia.
