Engineering Leadership - Paradigm Portfolio



Posted on Tuesday, December 6, 2022

At Paradigm, we believe that crypto will redefine money, finance, and the internet itself, and this technological revolution will have a fundamental and long-lasting impact on the global economy. The companies in our portfolio are attacking an extraordinarily diverse set of problems, but they virtually all have one thing in common: they're looking to add world-class engineers.

If you’re a technical leader who’s interested in opportunities in crypto, but you don’t know where to start, we’d love to help identify roles within the portfolio that might be of interest to you.

Please note: this posting is to learn more about opportunities across Paradigm’s portfolio, and is NOT for an internal position at Paradigm.

When speaking with Paradigm’s talent team, we’ll seek to match your background, skill set, and professional interests with companies and opportunities available within our portfolio. While our portfolio companies are at different stages of development, the types of products or services they’re building can broken roughly into four categories, with some overlap:

1) Decentralized finance

2) Blockchain infrastructure

3) Arts and entertainment

4) Ecosystem development

Leadership opportunities span across principal engineering or architecture roles, small-team managers, directors, and CTOs. Many opportunities have a focus on people leadership, so even if you don’t have crypto-native engineering experience, we’re still interested in speaking with you.
