COMPANY

At 0x Labs, our mission is to create a tokenized world where all value can flow freely. We're a highly technical, globally distributed group of teams taking part in transforming the way that value is exchanged on a global scale. We're passionate about open-source software and decentralized technology's potential to act as an equalizing force in the world, and our technology is deployed by a wide array of projects at the cutting edge of internet and economic advancement.

0x Labs created and now contributes to 0x protocol: a network comprised of open-source infrastructure, tooling, and cryptocurrency-based incentives that allow for the decentralized exchange of any blockchain-based digital asset. 0x is a secure, publicly owned and governed, and upgradable standard that’s abstracted away from application-layer developers and enables interoperability between blockchain-based applications.

Our flagship product is Matcha, a decentralized exchange that makes it safe and easy for anyone in the world to access crypto assets on Ethereum.

Lastly, 0x Labs encompasses Periscope Trading, a specialized liquidity desk focused on creating frontier decentralized markets and assets, as well as seeking alpha with proprietary strategies.

We’re a remote-first company with core contributors in nearly ten countries and over twice as many cities. Our headquarters is in San Francisco, with an office available for anyone on the team to use at any time.

We’ll consider your application regardless of where you call home.
