About Rook Labs

At Rook Labs, we believe the value in a transaction belongs to those who generate it.

We're creating a world where users and protocols own the surplus value their orders create and where financial services are powered entirely by it, rather than fees. A decentralized public good, governed by a DAO, that returns nearly all the profit back to its users.

Rook Labs is led by co-founder & CTO Joey Zacherl -- founder of the first market making bot on Ethereum, Volleyfire -- and comprised of top minds from DeFi, technology, research, and finance with backgrounds from Google, NASA, UBS, Citadel, Gemini, Apple, Shopify, Oxford, Harvard, Princeton, and Imperial College London.

We have deep experience in blockchain automation, MEV, and financial systems, and want to join with others like us, or teach the best candidates about this exciting area of modern finance.

What you’ll do

  • Assume responsibility for the product life cycle at all levels, from establishing large-scale roadmap priorities to the actual execution of each step along the way
  • Synthesize your knowledge of accounting with user interviews and market research to identify customer needs
  • Brainstorm solutions and quickly iterate new approaches following testing
  • Collaborate with engineering, UI/UX, marketing, operations, and sales teams to help design and deliver functionality to users

Desired skills

  • 3-5 years as a product manager, ideally in a fast-paced start-up environment
  • Track record of successfully managing and launching complex products
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment, effectively working across departments and managing multiple projects at once
  • Ability to communicate with diverse groups, from customers to company executives
  • Strong analytical skills, easily breaking complex problems down into smaller, workable parts
  • Determination and dedication to work autonomously in a startup venture.

Compensation & Benefits

  • Competitive compensation: We will offer you highly competitive compensation, beating the largest technology companies and financial institutions on the planet.
  • Unlimited upside: You will receive a grant of ROOK based on today’s price, good for the next 3 years. This gives you unlimited upside while your work benefits Rook Labs.
  • No complicated vesting: ****The grant vests linearly and has only a 3-month “ramp up” period. The period may be waived for highly-qualified candidates.
  • Financial security: Because of our healthy, liquid treasury we won’t run out of money to pay you for the duration of your 3-year grant.
  • Equal pay for equal work: We don’t adapt compensation according to where you live. All incentives are set to reference amounts for the San Francisco Bay area, which are typically the highest in the world.
  • Work smarter, not harder: We let you work flexible hours - so you can design your ideal workday schedule - and take the time you need when you feel you need to take a break.
  • Compensate for lack of benefits: Rook Labs will account for the cost of missing benefits such as health insurance, 401(k) matching, vacation time, and the need to cover work-related expenses.
  • Work remotely: Live and work wherever you like.
  • Make a dent: We’re reimagining finance, and your work can make a meaningful impact in helping us shape a better, more open, inclusive and fairer financial system.
