About Us: 

ZKValidator is a mission driven company aiming to champion privacy in the blockchain space, whether that be through research and technology such as zero-knowledge proofs, governance participation, or events and education. 

We currently operate validator nodes across eight Proof-of-Stake chains each of which you will be exploring in this role as well as additional blockchain networks. Our team consists of members with extensive and varied experience in the blockchain space.

The Role:

What you’ll be doing:

  • Setup effective tracking tools for existing networks and familiarise yourself with the tools we use to gauge Node success.

  • Prepare and own new blockchain launches on the technical and operational sides from start to finish

  • Work closely with marketing and business development efforts, ensuring successful coordination of the different units in the organization.

  • Ensure devops, strategy, marketing, events and delegator acquisition are aligned with overall company priorities and timelines.

  • Independent and self-directed: you are able to take decisions and manage large scale change independently.

  • Analytical mindset: you have the ability to do deep analysis of issues, processes, and people, identifying the root causes rather than accepting what you are told at face value.

  • Ability to prioritize: you can look at the company strategically and evaluate how projects fit into the overall goals without needing heavy guidance.

  • KPI oriented and able to get hands on with data, whether in an Excel spreadsheet or using more specialised tools.

  • Good communication skills: you have the ability to highlight opportunities, wins as well as mistakes with teammates in an effective way. 

  • Ability to select the best processes and tools for the job and implement them.

  • Strong collaborative attitude and experience on a small team: you have an appreciation for different personalities and skill sets. 

Nice to have:

  • Experience with software development and high degree of familiarity with common tools such as GitHub.

  • In-depth understanding of cloud infrastructure and devops processes.

  • Enthusiasm for the cryptocurrency ecosystem, cryptography, Proof-of-Stake, governance, and/or decentralized communities. 

  • Experience with change management and the introduction of new working practices in a rapidly changing organization.
