Design Director

Santiment - Remote

2 months ago

Would you like to be a remote full-timer who gets regular payments in $USD for work in the blockchain finance industry? Then great, we want to talk to you.

We’re a 100% distributed team working together from around the world, and are looking for top talent to help us change the future of trading crypto-markets. Reliability is a must; We need you to say what you mean and mean what you say… that means you’ll take the initiative and own the task from start to finish. In exchange, we’ll introduce you to a whole new set of finance, blockchain, marketing, community management and related skills. And/or, want to learn something else? We’ll help you achieve your full potential and learn that too.

You’ll be joining an international team, so written and spoken English is a necessity. Periodic team travels are part of the deal (last time we went to Berlin, and before that to Munich and Hamburg).

We’re constantly focused on keeping our work in a collaborative, creative and open environment. If these are your values too, come join us!
