Job Description

A bit about us:Unique blockchain assets (“NFTs”) have grown in popularity rapidly over the past few months. These unique assets allow people to own anything from in-game items to digital art to music and financial instruments. However, they are highly illiquid: transactions take minutes or hours to confirm, and Ethereum can process fewer than 5 NFTs per second for the whole world combined.

To solve this problem for ourselves and for others, we have built Immutable X, a next-generation protocol for trading blockchain assets with instant trade confirmation, massive scalability, and no gas fees without compromising user custody. The goal of Immutable X is to help businesses scale their creation and trading of these unique assets (“NFTs”).

We are searching for a Head of Blockchain to ensure we remain at the forefront of the NFT ecosystem. You will report directly to the CTO, and be responsible for helping to shape our product and engineering roadmap for everything blockchain-related, across our games and our platform.

  • Create tools to help yourself and others build better blockchain products
  • Validate blockchain-related technical decisions
  • Conduct internal training and education on blockchain practices and processes
  • Ensure Immutable remains at the cutting edge of blockchain & NFT technology

  • A deep understanding of the crypto ecosystem and twitter sphere
