Front-end Developer

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 a front-end developer!
Unlock is a flexible web3 protocol that allows you to put a “lock” on certain features on your site. It’s powered by NFTs (Non fungible tokens) 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've built a core protocol on Ethereum and deployed other EVM networks. It is now 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.
We are a small team with recent funding (Techcrunch article), 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!
