COMPANY


At 0x Labs, our mission is to create a tokenized world where all value can flow freely. We're a highly technical, globally distributed group of teams working together toward actualizing that mission. In doing so, we're excited and proud to be pushing the envelope across the DeFi and Ethereum stacks.

In joining us, you'll take part in transforming the way that value is exchanged on a global scale. We're passionate about open-source software and decentralized technology's potential to act as an equalizing force in the world, and our technology is deployed by a wide array of projects at the forefront of internet and economic advancement.

Founded in 2017, 0x Labs created and now partakes in the development of 0x protocol: a network comprised of open-source infrastructure, tooling, and cryptocurrency-based incentives that allow for the decentralized exchange of any blockchain-based digital asset. 0x is a secure, publicly owned and governed, and upgradable standard that’s abstracted away from application-layer developers and enables interoperability between blockchain-based applications.

Alongside the core protocol, 0x Labs also builds and maintains a suite of network incentives, business resources, developer/trader tools (e.g., 0x API), and end-user products (e.g., Matcha).

We’re a remote-first company with core contributors in nearly ten countries and over twice as many cities. Our headquarters is in San Francisco, with an office available for anyone on the team to use at any time. We’ll consider your application regardless of where you call home.


MATCHA

Matcha is 0x Labs’ first consumer-facing product. Built on top of 0x API, Matcha is a meticulously designed decentralized exchange that makes it safe and easy for anyone in the world to access crypto assets on the Ethereum blockchain as well as others. We provide users with the best prices by aggregating liquidity from all the major decentralized exchanges and splitting/routing orders intelligently.

By focusing on user experience and education, Matcha will onboard the next wave of users into the DeFi ecosystem across multiple chains. As the first Product Manager on the team, you’ll take large and early part in building out this flagship product.

You'll work closely alongside a growing world-class team of front-end engineers and designers as well as other teams and stakeholders across 0x Labs.

YOUR ROLE AS A PRODUCT MANAGER FOR MATCHA

One of 0x Labs long term bets is growing the DeFi market. This means onboarding the next million of DeFi users onto decentralized exchange. In this role, you will be responsible for driving Matcha’s product roadmap — ideating and developing new features for new and existing DeFi users. You will do that by partnering with engineers and designers to turn ideas into reality.

WHO YOU ARE

First and foremost, you are passionate about solving difficult problems and creating delightful products that users want. You are a creative and logical human that is able to decompose ambiguous problems into digestible pieces, prioritize solving them and delegate tasks appropriately. You're adept at analyzing tradeoffs between different solutions and ideas, you aim to make the most of the resources at your disposal, and you're scrappy enough to pull together more resources when necessary. You're capable of and enjoy inspiring and mobilizing the teams you work with towards ambitious goals.

You have shipped products you are proud of, unlocking value for users. You have a natural inclination to identify solutions to real problems, formulate plans on how to bring them to life and become obsessed about figuring out whether your hunch was right. You are agile when digesting learnings, and comfortable with ambiguity.

Matcha is a DeFi native product and we operate in a nascent, rapidly evolving industry. You know this because you are a DeFi power user.
