  • Experience with multiple tools for running pipelines and ML orchestration - able to form judgements and recommend the right tool for each job
  • Understand the concepts behind good ML experimentation and measurement
  • Experience with graph databases and graph learning is preferable but not necessary.

Why Work with Us

Opportunity

We are a tight-nit team of blockchain industry veterans solving one of the largest problems facing the mass adoption of crypto: transaction security. Despite being less than a year old, we have already integrated into Phantom, the leading wallet on Solana with millions of users. We are scanning millions of transactions each week for malware and scams and are helping keep their users safe. Transaction security is a high leverage way to make a difference in the world — protecting users funds and enabling them to give informed consent when entering digital agreements involving their finances and other ownership rights. We support EVM and Solana blockchains and will be adding more chains soon.

Benefits

  • 👍 Significantly above market rate equity compensation package — giving you meaningful ownership is important to us
  • 🧘‍♀️ Comprehensive health insurance
