We are looking for a Senior Backend Developer for a rapidly scaling US-based startup that works on building a new social network focused on NFT and crypto art. Their goal is to onboard billions of people into NFTs. They believe creators should make a living online, and anyone participating in social networks deserves to share the value created.
About the Company
The company is building a new social network focused on making NFTs appealing to the end user. Long term, they want to be creator-owned, decentralized social media protocol. Their current product lets users discover and show off their digital art. A long-term vision is to build the social media protocol of the internet, letting any developer build on top of an open social graph.
About the Project
Each piece of content is a NFT. It allows for new ways to monetize content, from NFT sales, royalties, creator tokens and DeFi. The key innovation brought by NFTs is that creators own their content, and thus can sell them to fans, collectors or advertisers. This is the one of the first crypto primitives the company wants to introduce to a mainstream audience. This industry is early, and they think they can build the missing piece on top of the NFT standard that will reach mainstream audiences.
