Blockstack a decentralized computing network and app ecosystem that puts users in control of their data and identity. Apps built on Blockstack make data breaches and trust violations an antiquated notion. It’s the easiest way to build decentralized apps that can scale. More info here.

Blockstack is a rapidly growing open source community with over 12k community members globally with 270+ apps built on the platform. It was co-founded by Ryan Shea and Muneeb Ali in 2013 at Princeton. We’re headquartered in New York City, with a globally distributed team that includes computer scientists from Princeton, Stanford, MIT and other top universities.

Blockstack PBC, a public benefit corporation at the heart of the Blockstack ecosystem, has raised $75M+ in capital to develop the core protocols and developer tools for the platform.

After four years of research and development, we’ve deployed the initial version of our full-stack computing platform that can scale blockchain-based apps to millions of users today.

We are grateful to have the confidence of investors including Union Square Ventures, Lux Capital, Shana Fisher, Naval Ravikant, Winklevoss Capital, Digital Currency Group, Foundation Capital, Kevin Rose, Michael Arrington, and Qasar Younis (former COO of Y Combinator).

Working at Blockstack:

  • Collaborate with the brightest minds: Blockstack was started at Princeton by a small team of computer scientists. First principles thinking and critical inquiry are in our team DNA. Brainstorming, debate, and collaboration are encouraged at all roles and job levels.
  • Remote first: Our team is mostly remote, and our daily rituals and meetings are planned to be remote friendly. We offer flexible work hours and try to keep Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays meeting free.
  • Community and ecosystem: The Blockstack team is small, but our open-source community is massive. We share our Slack with over 7,000 blockchain engineers, decentralized app developers, and crypto investors. We also hold over 100 global events, meetups, hackathons, and developer summits each year. Our community is a great resource for learning and growth beyond our core team.
  • Growth potential: The Blockstack ecosystem is still in its early days and we are rapidly growing. By joining now, you’ll work on the leading edge of blockchain technology, policy, and innovation. We offer an environment that encourages you to work on side projects, spearhead that new campaign, take responsibility of cutting-edge tech roll-out, and in some cases, join new teams.
  • Running a marathon, not a sprint: The world is not going to move away from centralized services to more secure, decentralized alternatives within a few years. Given the scale of long-term work we’re taking on, it’s extremely important to us that team members don’t burn themselves out or miss out on life. We don’t just pay lip service to work/life balance, it’s a core strategy for success.
