Monad Labs is the team building Monad, the performant and parallel EVM Layer-1 blockchain. We are a team of systems engineers and community builders who are on a mission to help crypto eat the world. After recently raising $225M in series A funding, we are growing our team.

The Role

We are hiring a first Ventures-focused hire to join the ecosystem team at Monad. You will support early-stage builders and act as a conduit to venture capital and ecosystem resources. You will identify ambitious builders, evaluate product pitches, and coach teams toward success. You will also build relationships with investors, accelerators, and other stakeholders. You’ll have a huge impact on the success of many early-stage entrepreneurs and on the early Monad ecosystem.

Who you are

  • You are an experienced venture investor in the crypto industry with at least 3 years of experience
  • You are an analytical, first-principles thinker who can reason about problems and opportunities across verticals
  • You have strong product intuition
  • You have strong intuition for GTM strategy / user acquisition in the crypto space
  • You are no-ego, adaptable, entrepreneurial, and detail-oriented
  • You are an excellent verbal and written communicator
  • You are someone who enjoys building relationships and can manage expectations across many stakeholders and competing priorities
  • You are someone who likes helping people

What you’ll be doing

  • Initiate initiatives that educate and advance early-stage builders
  • Coach early-stage teams on product development and presentation
  • Manage relationships with investors and identify win-win investment opportunities
  • Contribute to broader ecosystem development strategy

Why work with us

  • Huge opportunity. EVM is ubiquitous but existing EVM-compatible chains are very slow. Monad’s core innovations offer devs the best of both worlds (portability and performance) and are a game-changer for mass user adoption in crypto.
  • The right team. Pushing the limits of decentralized computation requires unique low-latency engineering talent. Our team has nearly ten years of experience staying at the top of brutally efficient TradFi markets by building ultra-low-latency distributed systems for high-frequency trading. We’re assembling a similarly world-class team in BD, Growth, DevRel, and Marketing. Check out our team here.
  • Culture. We’re a lean team working closely together to achieve very ambitious goals. We are united in our belief that we will completely change the future of decentralized computation, and we take pride in our culture of collaboration and low ego. As an early member of our team, you’ll help continue to shape our culture.
  • Impactful work. Your work will be deeply impactful, making decentralized computation orders of magnitude cheaper and more plentiful, ultimately paving the way for new dapps that improve many people’s lives.
  • Compensation. You’ll receive a competitive salary and equity package.
  • Resources and growth. We’re well-capitalized, with backing from leading venture funds like Paradigm, Electric Capital, Dragonfly, Greenoaks, and from leaders in the space like Cobie and Hasu. We keep a lean team, and this is a rare opportunity to join. You’ll learn a lot and grow as our company scales.

Salary and benefits

Minimum full-time salary of $175,000. (**This is not a guarantee of compensation or salary; a final offer amount may vary based on factors including but not limited to experience and geographic location.)

Monad Labs’ benefits include unlimited and encouraged paid time off; insurance coverage; in-office equipment stipend; monthly wellness/fitness stipend; and 10 company-observed holidays.

The majority of our team is based in NYC. This role heavily prefers NYC-based candidates.
