About the Job
As a research analyst, you’ll be working alongside our team to produce industry-leading research. Our work is read by top investors, entrepreneurs, traders, and companies in the crypto industry. You’ll be responsible for staying up to date on the bleeding edge of crypto and analyzing data for weekly research pieces. You’ll have the freedom to follow your curiosity, whether that’s Bitcoin, DeFi, Web3, Oracles, NFTs, crypto-gaming, governance, financial valuations, or whatever else sparks your search for understanding.
Additionally, we’ll encourage you to participate in discussions on Twitter, represent Messari as a crypto expert at events,, and be a valuable member of the greater crypto community.
Lastly, there will be less frequent tasks such as updating and onboarding new projects to the Messari Registry, moderating any future Messari virtual events, or other one-off tasks demanding a team player. Our team is like a family, except in this family we all love crypto, really it’s the best type of family.
We are currently a remote company and are open to any remote candidates. Our team is from around the world and we plan to meet up in person as often as possible but have the process in place for productive remote work.
You’ll fit in well if you share the following qualities:
- Accountability and Autonomy: Messari believes in radical ownership, which means we own our shit. We’re a team of doers that values shipping. If you think a process can be improved or that we should be doing something that we’re not, then we encourage you to take initiative. We also have fun while executing regardless of if it’s bull and bear market.
- Curiosity: To succeed in this role you need to be relentlessly curious – you’re the type of person who explores cutting edge tech and probably already partaking in DeFi activities like liquidity mining, Uniswap pools, or god help you, Yams. If you’re not enthralled in DeFi, then you’re deep into DAOs, Web3, NFTs, or another facet of crypto. We’re all borderline obsessed with crypto, to the point where our research team will hop on a call and four hours later we’re still talking about crypto. That should excite you.
- Collaboration: Our team works together to build the best product suite in crypto. We are a small group of collaborative individuals that put Messari’s mission above personal achievement. We challenge each other and provide feedback on a daily basis and will expect you to do the same. We also tweet out some pretty solid memes.
- Nice to haves: If you’re financially savvy – excel and financial modeling aren’t strangers – that’s a plus. Or if technical in some other capacity – writing SQL queries, can work with APIs to get interesting data, etc – that’s also a plus.
Messari is committed to maintaining a workplace where diversity of identity, culture, and life experience is the norm and respected consistently.
