Tldr:

New protocol, nearing launch, straddling the worlds of web3 (Ethereum, then beyond) and digital payments. This role demands deep knowledge and enthusiasm about both. You’ll work closely with product, marketing, and company leadership to recruit and support key partners, inform strategy and accelerate our roadmap. You’ll need to be relentlessly creative and optimistic — hustling the $#!% out of any potential opportunity to build Eco’s influence and maximize serendipity around the project.

Read on if these things excite you.

About Eco:

Eco Inc. exists to maximize money’s value — to reclaim value lost to the current financial system and make sure crypto and web3 actually bring us money without borders. We expect better from our money, and we want you to as well. That’s what drives us every day.

We’re focused on contributing to the new Eco protocol 👀 and building Bend. The Eco protocol is designed to accelerate how money moves across web3. It aggregates liquidity across valuable payment routes and enables intuitive end-user experiences with features like cross-wallet and cross-chain balance aggregation, sub-second transaction routing, and smart settlement according to user preferences. Bend is the product we build to demonstrate what the protocol makes possible — to show that we can build a seamless payment experience that anyone can use, with web3 today.

With both the Eco Protocol and Bend, we continue to push the boundary of what crypto enables and just how powerful the user experience can be. We’re a team of 20 hell-bent on doing our very best work (individually and together), solving hard problems, staying optimistic, and believing money should be better.

If these things excite you, now would be the time to join. Eco is coming.
