At 0x Labs, our mission is to create a tokenized world where all value can flow freely. We’re a mission-driven and diverse team composed of world class talent from Coinbase, Google, Meta, Bitso, Citi, Spotify and other top companies. We are a remote-first and fully distributed company, with team members located across all of the continents besides Antarctica. As early pioneers in the space, we’ve made significant technical contributions to various Ethereum standards over the years; fun fact - our team helped establish the NFT token standard (ERC721).In joining us, you'll take part in transforming the way that value is exchanged on a global scale. We're passionate about open-source software and decentralized technology's potential to act as an equalizing force in the world, and our technology is deployed by a wide array of projects at the forefront of internet and economic advancement.Founded in 2017, 0x Labs created and now partakes in the development of 0x protocol: the open-source, global backbone for decentralized exchange. Alongside the core protocol, we also build and maintain products and service offerings include Matcha, the search engine for tokens and 0x API, the endpoint for multi-chain aggregated liquidity . All of these offerings allow 0x Labs to continue marching towards our vision of building a tokenized world where all value can flow freely at the best prices and with the lowest transaction costs.Our headquarters is in San Francisco, with an office available for anyone on the team to use at any time but we are a remote-first company and will consider your application wherever you call home.THE ROLE0x is fast becoming the trusted standard for all decentralized exchange. Since its inception, 0x was conceived as a public good governed by individuals, companies, and other entities with a shared interest in setting the rules of how tokenized value is exchanged on Web3. With broader awareness of the importance of open governance, and more best practices available, we want to take the next steps in our decentralized governance roadmap.We are looking for a smart contract engineer with a knack for open governance systems running on blockchain rails. We plan to completely refresh 0x’s governance architecture, assets, and processes. These changes need to take into account multiple factors: upgradability of 0x smart contracts, security shutdowns design and processes, community treasury(ies), and last but not least the multi-chain nature of the 0x network. We are looking for someone who can help us define and build the path forward in this cutting-edge field.
