We are currently in stealth mode and thoughtfully building out our team. We have a compelling strategic vision, a strong cohesive core team, solid financial backing and the experience and operational chops to successfully execute on plan.
We are seeking high-quality candidates in select roles to round out the team. The primary attributes we are looking for in a candidate include: highly driven and motivated, strong work ethic, self-starter, master in his/her field of expertise, a no nonsense approach with open transparent communication and importantly, easy to get along with. If this sounds like you, we would genuinely love to hear from you.
Role Description: Fractional CTO
The core of the Risk Protocol, consisting of a highly sophisticated risk engine, is largely in place. The next phase involves the buildout of the tech interface, based on a very clear vision of the primary building blocks of the platform. Some of those building blocks include compliance tools (AML, KYC etc.), funding gateways, custody, tokenization, a marketplace etc.
We intend on adopting a “buy and build” modular approach to development, which means that we will not recreate the wheel where it is not necessary. Where robust off-the-shelf market solutions that meet our technical requirements exist already, we shall buy/adopt them. Other areas that require a more customized solution shall be internally developed.
This role will be charged with overseeing and initiating the tech buildout in close partnership with the CEO.
Main responsibilities will include:
Creating the overall tech vision and architecting the tech stack
Screening and selecting key tech team members
Screening and selecting vendors
Selecting technologies (protocols/token standards…)
Developing technology roadmap and timeline
Implementing rigorous development processes
Your success will be measured by your ability to build the infrastructure and team leadership to a point where your role is in effect made redundant.
This is a remote role.
Substantial prior CTO experience
Demonstrated experience leading teams and successfully completing complex builds
The ideal candidate will be a crypto native with deep understanding of the crypto ecosystem
Experience with developing smart contracts and token issuance/redemption
Good knowledge of trading systems and exchange infrastructure (tradfi or crypto)
