Interchain is a young, ambitious, and values-led team working on the core blockchain technology of the Cosmos ecosystem and the Cosmos Hub. We’re headquartered in Berlin, Germany, but our team stretches from the west coast of the US to eastern Europe. We keep in touch through Github, Slack, Discord, and Zoom, and meet in person periodically (when COVID permits). All in all, the software we develop secures billions of dollars in value across many different systems, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We strive to build world-class software while having plenty of laughs along the way.
One of our company’s responsibilities is improving developer relations within the Cosmos Network and the wider IBC connected Internet of Blockchains. We are pretty flexible with the definition of “developer relations” and generally think of it as anything that improves a new developer’s understanding of the admittedly complicated world of blockchains.
Generally this takes the form of tutorials, blog posts, workshops, presentations, documentation and supporting users in our community channels. We’re looking for someone who can get creative with ways to reach our audience of builders and who can take initiative on more adventurous ideas, whether they be proof-of-concept applications or anything that sparks interest and curiosity in our products. The Cosmos ecosystem also includes a number of ambitious teams who push our software to its limits. As part of this role, you’ll be working with some of the best projects in the industry, understanding their needs and supporting them through public chat channels, calls, code reviews, pointing them to existing resources, or writing how-to posts—anything that makes synthesizing the broad scope of Cosmos related technologies more readily available.
Because we are a small company, our employees sometimes wear more than one hat. The Developer Relations department currently consists of two people who double as the Grants and Funding department. They help evaluate funding proposals for the Interchain Foundation, a Swiss non-profit dedicated to supporting the research and creation of secure decentralized technology and the networks that deploy it like Cosmos. You may be asked from time to time to evaluate a specific project or technology, or be the first to try out the results from cutting edge teams shaping the future of our industry.
While the Cosmos ecosystem touches on many projects and technologies that enrich the vision of an Internet of Blockchains, there are some core products that we are especially dedicated to supporting. The three main ones are:
We don’t have any specific criteria regarding previous experience, but we're looking for candidates who ideally have:
Your position will put you in contact with a large list of topics. We hope this is especially exciting for you and anticipate the opportunity to be engaged with many of the following areas:
Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with most of these topics: These are just some examples of the technologies you might come across, and although previous exposure is helpful, we’re looking for people who are passionate and curious above all else.
Not sure if you're a fit? Please feel free to apply anyways, and we'll take it from there.
