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 working together toward actualizing that mission. In doing so, we're excited and proud to be pushing the envelope across the DeFi and Ethereum stacks.

In joining us, you'll take 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 forefront of internet and economic advancement.

Founded in 2017, 0x Labs created and now partakes in the development of 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.

Alongside the core protocol, 0x Labs also builds and maintains a suite of network incentives, business resources, developer/trader tools (e.g., 0x API), and end-user products (e.g., Matcha).

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.


YOUR ROLE AS THE ENGINEERING MANAGER FOR MATCHA.XYZ AT 0X


As an Engineering Manager at 0x, you’ll report to our Co-CEO and lead a team of 5-10 of the industry’s most talented engineers and partner with product managers, designers, and marketers to build and scale our flagship, consumer-facing retail application, Matcha.xyz.

Matcha is 0x Labs’ first consumer-facing product. Built on top of 0x API, Matcha is a meticulously designed decentralized exchange that makes it safe and easy for anyone in the world to access crypto assets on the Ethereum blockchain as well as others. We provide users with the best prices by aggregating liquidity from all the major decentralized exchanges and splitting/routing orders intelligently.

By focusing on user experience and education, Matcha will onboard the next wave of users into the DeFi ecosystem across multiple chains. As the Engineering Manager on the team, you’ll take a large and early part in building out this flagship product.

From a product perspective, we celebrate IC-driven ownership, and we select leadership for their ability to collaborate on and align company, team, and personal milestones; establish guardrails; empower autonomy; remove blockers; and oversee iteration.
