Our vision is to bring more innovation, efficiency, and equality of opportunity to the world by building an open financial system. Our first step on that journey is making digital currency accessible and approachable for everyone. Two principles guide our efforts. First, be the most trusted company in our domain. Second, create user-focused products that are easier and more delightful to use.

Wallet is a mobile wallet and a gateway to the decentralized web. We want Wallet to be the way people interface with the open financial system, on a daily basis. We see a world where Wallet users can earn income and send it to anyone, anywhere, at a low fee, and have access to financial services, no matter where they are or what their economic background is. Most importantly, we're creating a platform on top of which the next generation of entrepreneurs will build tomorrow's technology businesses.

You'll work closely with our product and design teams to identify what our customers need, and work cross functionally with other engineering and non-engineering teams to ship new features to the Wallet app. If you're passionate about cryptocurrency, the decentralized web, hard engineering problems, and building great user experiences, we should talk.

A little about our team: We take continuous learning to heart - every day in our world brings new ideas and opportunities. We take personal ownership of our mission and truly believe we will deliver on it. We also value positive energy, and clear communication and are committed to building an inclusive environment for people from every background.

  • Add positive energy in every meeting, and make your coworkers feel included in every interaction.
