Gauntlet’s mission is to help make blockchain protocols and smart contracts safer and more trustworthy for users. Building decentralized systems creates new challenges for protocol developers, smart contract developers, and asset holders that are not seen in traditional development and investing. Gauntlet is building a blockchain simulation and testing platform that leverages battle-tested techniques from other industries to emulate interactions in crypto networks. Simulation provides transparency and greatly reduces the cost of experimentation so that teams can rapidly design, launch, and scale new decentralized systems.

Our goal is to make building an agent-based simulation for blockchains and smart contracts as streamlined as possible. At the core of our infrastructure stack is a blazing fast C++ engine that allows us to simulate protocols, contracts, and network interactions millions of times faster than they run in reality.

We’re looking for someone to own all things finance for our business. You’ll work cross functionally with Sales, Operations, and Engineering to ensure that we efficiently deploy our financial resources to drive product growth. We’re the first B2DAO company - we work almost exclusively with DAO customers and this makes finance and operations a challenge. We’re looking for someone who can not just help us operate efficiently, but define the standard for a new type of business model that hasn’t been seen before.
