VP of Engineering
Menlo Park, CA

The company's product is in the realms of blockchain, cryptography, fintech, and open source. It is not a cryptocurrency company.

The leadership team includes a mix of world class experts in the fields of finance, investment, cryptography and blockchain. For example, one of their cofounders has served on the Investment Advisory Board of Google, and one of their cofounders is an industry recognized pioneer in blockchain and cryptography technology.

The company has 5 engineers now and would like to hire 20-30 more in the next 12 months.

In this position, you would spend about:
- 30% of your time on architecture and research, incorporating the latest breakthroughs in academic research into products. You don't have to be an architect that defines the architecture but have to understand it and collaborate with others who are working on it.
- 50% of your time on people management including recruiting and leading the engineering team as well as prioritizing and delegating tasks based on input from your colleagues in product and business and research.
- 20% on code reviews. You may not need to code at all, although it's preferable that you can do so if needed.

The company will pay a salary of around $200k plus equity which could be highly lucrative. The vast majority of the financial upside would hopefully be from the equity. Candidates who fit this job/company will likely be able to get much more than $200k per year in cash from large companies, but value the potential reward of equity much more than the guaranteed cash they'd be giving up to join a startup such as this.
