Technical Product Lead

Full-time • Singapore or remote

What we do

Alkimiya is a blockspace markets protocol that facilitates the creation, trading, and settlement of blockspace resources via a peer-to-peer system of smart contracts.
Public blockchains have finite capacity for blockspace resources, and therefore all on-chain actions compete for inclusions and orderings with transaction fees. The supply of blockspace is inelastic, and the demand is driven by exogenous factors.
As activities grow, the volatility of resource pricing hinders the growth of organizations that frequently settle on-chain.
Alkimiya protocol makes accurate price discovery on blockspace resources possible for everyone — ensuring sustainable growth for the industry as a whole.

About the team

Alkimiya is the category creator and leader of blockspace markets. Our data-focused team is at the forefront of blockspace research, driving thought and conversation around blockspace resources and pricing.
By joining Alkimiya, you are uniquely positioned to work with the brightest minds making blockspace markets possible — with the potential to indelibly change on-chain transactions and interactions for the entire industry.
We are a lean and well-capitalized team of 10, working hybrid with flexible hours all over the world. The team meets frequently in-person during offsites, where we focus on building connections with teammates and having fun. So far, we’ve had offsites in Barcelona, London, Denver, San Francisco, and Tahoe. Our current hiring locus is our in-person office in Singapore.

The role

We are looking for a technical product lead who can turn our world-changing research behind blockspace markets into elegant, intuitive products for our users (who generally use Alkimiya to hedge blockchain transaction fees).
As much of this involves new primitives, we are excited to work with someone with the imagination and the fortitude to chart new ground in terms of product ideas and execution. Given the nature of the concepts (and some math) involved, the ideal team member is someone with a solid technical background — so that we can seamlessly translate between constructs and technical architecture.
As our first product-focused hire, you will be leading and creating many of our product processes as we scale. We hope to lean on your past experience in product management, while giving you the space to grow and lead the product function within our team.
At Alkimiya, we value team members who are owners, demonstrating rigor and detail orientation, and who care passionately about where the crypto market is going at a macro level. As our goal is for Alkimiya to be the dominant blockspace resource hedging protocol — for all possible blockspace resources — we want to work only with those who truly feel the same deep calling for decentralizing and making cryptoeconomic systems more transparent.

Responsibilities:

Translate groundbreaking research into product constructs
Understand blockchain and blockspace markets, and user requirements, in depth
Define and analyze metrics to guide product development

Build and run our product development engine

Requirements:

3+ years of experience with consumer-focused products, shipping them at scale
Deep analytical, prioritization, and problem-solving skills; using data to drive product decisions, and intuition to push ideas through
Standard PM traits apply: empathy, communication, collaboration, in order to drive product decisions across the organization
Track record or strong demonstrated interest in crypto/blockchain
Experience with running remote teams (being in Singapore is preferred, but we are open to talent everywhere)
An entrepreneurial mindset with the ability to succeed in a fast-paced environment

Prior experience building in crypto/DeFi
Prior experience building options / derivatives product
Technical degree in Computer Science or related field
