Developer Relations Lead
Engineering / Product /
Founded by two ex-Coinbase employees and backed by top investors including Andreesen Horowitz, Coinbase, IDEO, and Kindred Ventures, Goldfinch is a decentralized credit platform that is using crypto to empower financial inclusion around the world.
Our vision is to build a global, decentralized network that allows anyone to be a lender, not just banks. Since announcing the protocol in January 2021, the loan book has doubled every 2 months. We now serve thousands of end-borrowers across three continents and over 10 different countries. And we're just getting started.
As Goldfinch’s Developer Relations Lead you will be responsible for growing the community of developers building on and around the Goldfinch ecosystem. As the founding developer relations hire, you will build systems and policies from zero to one.
You’ll write tooling and docs so that it’s easy for others to integrate. You could be writing a governance proposal on Maker one day, assessing community grants the next, or writing re-usable libraries and blog posts the next. The ideal candidate will be technical enough to read protocol docs, plugged-in enough to know about new opportunities as they come in, and savvy enough to separate meaningful from merely interesting collaborations.
You'll play a key role in driving the next phase of growth and expansion of the Goldfinch protocol and will work closely with the Engineering team and broader Community to further decentralize the technical development of Goldfinch.
This role is full time, preferably located in the Bay Area. Open to remote for the right candidate.
