About us:

All in Bits (AiB) aims to create a more transparent and accountable world through open-source software that enables permissionless innovation and borderless transactions. Our technology empowers builders to launch sovereign blockchains and decentralized applications (dApps) that are secure, scalable, and interoperable.
As a core contributor to the thriving Cosmos ecosystem, AiB engineers pioneered the first-ever Proof-of-Stake network and built the core infrastructure that powers Cosmos today, including Tendermint Core, Cosmos SDK, and Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC). From creating and funding to engineering and marketing, we prioritize simplicity and minimal production to build technological solutions that endure. 

AiB is committed to upholding core Cosmos values of transparency, accountability, and decentralization. That’s why we support the creation of the Decentralists DAO for the Cosmos Hub to move all operations on-chain, starting with engineering. By establishing the Decentralists Engineering Team (DET), we aim to advance core components of the Cosmos tech stack and encourage open dialogue, decision-making, and innovation. 

How we work:

We focus on talent rather than the location to hire the very best person for every role. Open communication is vital, and we use the best tools to collaborate efficiently. Everyone has the autonomy to create their best work, which we reward with unlimited growth potential. AiB is remote-first, and to support your working life, we offer carefully considered benefits and hold regular team and company-wide meetings to encourage collaboration and interaction between teams. 

You have the flexibility to work the hours best suited to your lifestyle; as long as you deliver consistent quality work, the sky's the limit! You will be required to be available from 8 am - 10 am PST some days when we bring our people together to contribute to our Townhall sessions.
