  • You have gained insights into how high performing engineering teams work and have picked up solid engineering practices, skills, and approaches to problem-solving that prepare you for your career in technology.
  • Contributed to our groundbreaking technologies and made contributions that ultimately become a part of our products.

  • Currently pursuing a degree in Computer Science, Information Systems, Cybersecurity, Mathematics or related technical field.
  • The tech startup landscape interests you as a career path and you enjoy fast-paced environments working on difficult problems.
  • You're graduating between December 2022 and June 2023. 
  • You are able to work 10-20 hours per week.
  • Passion for cryptocurrency and/or blockchain technology helps, but isn't required!
