Berachain is a high-performance, EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) compatible, Layer 1 blockchain built on the Cosmos SDK. We use a variant of delegated Proof of Stake called Proof of Liquidity consensus to rehypothecate liquidity as security at the protocol level, aligning incentives between liquidity and security across the ecosystem.
We're a young, world-class team of builders, engineers and executives with extensive experience across Web2 and crypto environments. We’ve raised and deployed $Bs as fund managers, won the knife fight in the orderbooks on Wall Street and contributed to category-defining DApps and protocols. Now we’re building Berachain.
Our team combines traditional experience in building and scaling teams at technology companies like Apple, Coinbase, Microsoft and Y-Combinator with crypto native experience from some of DeFi’s most impactful protocols. We're all highly passionate about building useful infrastructure to bring decentralized finance to the masses. Our core engineering and founding team is based in Toronto. We’re well funded by a group of leading digital asset investors, hedge funds, centralized exchange venture arms and strategic angels.
We are looking for self-starters and mission driven individuals to join us as we build the future of decentralized finance. The ideal candidate for this role takes initiative and ownership over their work, thrives in a fast-paced and highly collaborative in-person environment, and is capable of rapidly adapting to evolving needs as required.
The liquidity lead’s role is quite self explanatory. Your role is to drive liquidity and TVL to Berachain, deploying across core chain DeFi primitives (dex/perps/stablecoin lend) and DApps built on Bera. The ideal candidate likely has a deep network across venture capital funds, liquid funds, prop shops, family offices, hedge funds, pension funds, conglomerates, corporate strategics and HNWIs interested in exploring asymmetric opportunities within a new on-chain ecosystem.
A second order responsibility is driving DApps with the potential to generate large amounts of TVL, DAOs and DAO treasuries into the Berachain ecosystem, with the purpose of increasing functional TVL and depth of liquidity on chain to feed into Proof of Liquidity.
The ideal candidate is a strong salesperson and has demonstrated a track record of overcoming the “activation energy” required to bootstrap liquidity to the tune of at least 8-9 figures for a new application, protocol, fund, or ecosystem. Given current capital flows, they are likely situated or close to capital networks in HK, Singapore, Korea, and Dubai/Abu Dhabi.
