What is our culture?

Euler Labs is partway through building a deeply talented team of professionals who believe in DeFi’s promise and egalitarian ethos. Our team is professional, but not rigid or hierarchical.

Although we do not target ‘pedigree’ as a prerequisite and are open to all potential contributors, many of our staff are quite accomplished, with ‘proof of work' at Oxford, MIT, Berkeley, Harvard, the Federal Reserve, Morgan Stanley, Citadel, Twitter, Google, etc. Perhaps most importantly, we seek cultural fit: the team is serious about our work, but fun, good-natured, collegial, and kind-hearted.

Our team is fully remote, with approximately 25 people across at least 12 countries, and we work as smoothly as any office. We believe in collaboration, transparency and accountability. We are results-driven, with a focus on quality outcomes, not time spent working.

We believe in responsible development and that "moving thoughtfully and building things" beats "moving fast and breaking things".

We are committed to building a diverse, inclusive company and wholeheartedly believe in recruiting and operating on the principles of performance, fairness, kindness, and integrity.

If this sounds like you, we encourage you to apply!

Euler is an equal opportunity employer.
