The Institutionalization of Crypto ft. Sam Bankman-Fried & Dave Olsen
Jump Capital is growing our crypto investing team! We are currently looking for a Crypto Researcher to join our talented and quickly expanding group.
Jump Capital has been a leading investor in crypto/blockchain projects for 8+ years. We’ve invested in a portfolio of 25+ projects & companies that include 7 unicorns, 2 new public companies, and BitGo, the industry’s first billion-dollar acquisition. We are a founding member of the DeFi Alliance, a leading decentralized finance accelerator and network of blockchain investors, founders, traders, and users.
Our sister company Jump Trading is one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency traders and an active contributor to blockchain protocols. It acts as an invaluable partner to our portfolio companies to provide product feedback from professional users and liquidity to their projects.
About the role:
Jump Capital is looking for a passionate crypto/blockchain expert to join the team as a Crypto Researcher.
This individual will use their solid understanding of blockchain technology and the broader crypto ecosystem to help our team identify, evaluate, and invest in novel technologies across cryptocurrencies, blockchain, DeFi, and web3.
Ideal applicants would be just as comfortable reading a technical white paper as they would talking with other members of the crypto community on Twitter, Discord, or at a cocktail party. They should have direct experience experimenting on DeFi projects, and understand the complex nuances around topics like DEX liquidity, yield farming, and composability across various ecosystems.
