Yuga Labs is a web3 company exploring big ideas in identity, ownership, utility, and interoperability to push the crypto and NFT space forward. As The Defiant recently said, "The story of Yuga Labs is one where the improbable has become reality in the blink of an eye." Since debuting with our flagship collection Bored Ape Yacht Club in April 2021, we’ve created new IP for the ape ecosystem (Mutant Ape Yacht Club, Bored Ape Kennel Club), acquired other top collections (CryptoPunks and Meebits), and pulled off successful events (ApeFest) and partnerships (Rolling Stone). And we made both web3 and gaming history — the biggest NFT mint ever followed by a game demo with record-breaking synchronized player participation — for our newest initiative, Otherside.
See you on the other side
Our team's goal is to set a new standard for how we build, deploy, and maintain software. We work hand in hand with the development, IT, and security teams to make building world class software easier and more enjoyable.
We create an environment where best practices and boilerplate come for free. Security, safety, and privacy are principles we believe in and they should be in every piece of software that we produce by default. It should be easy for our teams to build, test, and get/provide feedback at any point in the development lifecycle. Monitoring, logging, and instrumentation should be simple for our team to implement and consume.
In short, we let our developers, designers, product managers, and artists focus on the creative and inventive parts of building by providing robust and invisible infrastructure that makes great software the default outcome.
We have tons to do, building the future of web3, and we need help maturing our tech stack, work flows, security practices, and operations to meet our rapid growth.
Our team is made up of hackers, detectives, tinkerers, and builders that are laying the foundation that will sit beneath every piece of software we create; we’d love to have you join us!

We believe true innovation in web3 requires diversity in perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds. But historically marginalized groups are underrepresented in the space, not just as participants but as leaders and creators. Luckily, we — and every web3 company — have the opportunity to bake necessary process and mindset shifts into our company DNA from the early days.
To help build a web3 that’s diverse and inclusive, we strive to build Yuga’s workplace to be diverse and inclusive. Not just how we do things day to day, but who does them and who decides what needs to be done.
