Who we are:

We're an ambitious team of researchers, builders, and entrepreneurs with many years of experience in the crypto space and are passionate about digital assets. With a new product roadmap, we are adding several new products to our portfolio, beyond on-chain data - we are becoming a more comprehensive go-to crypto platform for various needs.

Glassnode is a leading market intelligence platform for on-chain and derivatives data. We offer the most comprehensive library of advanced on-chain metrics and insights for Bitcoin, Ethereum and hundreds of other digital assets, bringing data intelligence to the blockchain and cryptocurrency space.

With an emphasis on user-centric interfaces, we aim to deliver intelligible, actionable, and unique insights from blockchain data and beyond, helping investors make educated decisions in an overly emotional and irrational market, and equipping blockchain teams with valuable insights on their projects and tokens.

    • You have very good English communication skills
    • Bonus: You have experience with Kubernetes, Helm, and cloud providers (preferably Google Compute Engine)
    • Bonus: You have experience building distributed systems and data pipelines

What we offer:

    • Flexibility to organise your work and hours the way you like, our remote-first setup enables this for everyone
    • Join a young, self-funded and already profitable company in a future-proof market

    • Be one of the main contributors to building a company with its unique culture in the cutting-edge tech space
    • No approval loops or unnecessary processes, quick decision-making and full ownership of your function
    • We are working on a kick-ass, meaningful benefits package, something truly useful and empowering -  you will help us figure out what we'd need to stand out as the workplace of the future, we are open to any ideas
