Who we are

We set out to design a modern organization from the start—one that’s global, remote, and asynchronous-by-default.

Our team has decades of experience in building companies, but we’re looking for more diverse experiences to add to the founding team. Joining XMTP Labs today represents not just an opportunity to play a key role in building an essential part of the next web, but also in establishing the core DNA of the company.
