About the job

Do you feel passionate about making the web a better place? Do you thrive in an interesting environment with new problems to solve every day? Do you want to be part of a young and growing startup with a strong vision?
Then join Unlock Inc as its very first Developer Evangelist!
Unlock is a flexible web3 protocol that allows you to put a “lock” on certain features on your site. It’s powered by NFTs that verify memberships. A single NFT can be used to allow access to multiple areas and groups, regardless of whether they are on the web or in the physical world. This means that Unlock can be used to group together formerly distributed fanbases or accept and verify tickets to events and venues.
Unlock Inc. is the company behind the Unlock Protocol. We are building a protocol for memberships to change our content, communities; applications are monetized.
We've built a core protocol on Ethereum, used by companies like forbes.com or creators like Camilla Russo and conferences like EthCC. To make things easier for non-crypto users, we added credit card support and a dashboard that makes it easy to implement locks, membership details, and payment options.
Unlock is governed by its token holders through our governance token called UDT. Our vision is for a long-term and sustainable protocol supported and developed by its users.
This is an opportunity to work at the forefront of technological development and shape the future of the web for the better.
We are a small team with recent funding, and we're looking for the best, friendliest and excited candidates, wherever they are in the world. We're looking forward to working with you!
