  • Deliver in grey spaces and bring leadership to teams working together.
  • Want to direct your work around a mission we all believe will usher a new wave of inclusion and innovation for the web.

  • Enjoy leveraging your technical influence to build motivated, positive, feedback-focused teams.
  • Have led public development open source efforts, or are committed to learning how to be amazing at it.
  • Appreciate the subject matter expertise of your colleagues and view them as a resource for your own development.
  • Care about testing and have earned your opinions about when to use unit, integration, and system tests.
  • Are excited to advance Self-Sovereign Identity.
  • Are equally excited to work on Decentralized Web Nodes and helping creators deliver decentralized applications.
  • And are further excited to build out tbDEX and Web5 as the foundational projects to exchange value and enable decentralized application programming over the internet.
