Technical Program Manager

New York City / San Francisco / Remote /
Operations /
Full Time
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 build financial models of crypto products. Simulation provides transparency and greatly reduces the cost of experimentation so that teams can rapidly design, launch, and scale new decentralized systems. 

We’re looking for a Technical Program Manager to oversee our client projects. This is a unique role, unlike an account manager or customer success role-- you will be responsible for managing technical deliverables and driving improvement over time.  When we onboard a new client on our platform, we assist the client with integrating their protocol. This is an essential part of how we support new customers, build statistically sound models, and most importantly continue to grow our business. Like at any quickly growing start-up, we’re looking for someone who can grow into a leadership role quickly, but is not afraid to get their hands dirty early on.  

What You'll Be Doing:

    • Lead Gauntlet’s integrations and client relationships
    • Work with clients and development teams to manage deliverables, scope and timelines
    • Improve and streamline Gauntlet’s model development process
    • Identify issues and work with product, design, and engineering to drive improvements to our product 
    • Drive the use of reusable components across our projects to improve our development speed over time. We’re a start-up - if you want to own some of these product initiatives, we’ll make it happen
    • Write content, both for clients and their users, that explains the work we have done
    • Work with company leadership to identify and close new partners and customers for Gauntlet
    • Drive other internal initiatives at the company as we scale

What We Look For:

    • Excellent project management skills
    • Good with numbers - should be comfortable with data and data visualization
    • Strong interest and familiarity with Crypto protocols and DeFi products
    • Experience managing software complex software development projects including building machine learning systems or other statistical models 
    • Excellent technical writing ability and communication skills
    • Deep analytic, prioritization and problem solving skills
