About Rho: 

Rho Labs built Rho Protocol, an on-chain, non-custodial interest rate futures and swaps market and launched in November 2023.  The venue, custom-built for rates derivatives, seeks to combine transparency and efficiency of zero-counterparty risk on-chain trading, where collateral and risk are managed entirely on the blockchain, with the familiar experience and accessibility of centralised exchanges.

  4. Cross-Functional Collaboration: Facilitate communication and alignment between different teams to ensure cohesive execution of company objectives and initiatives.
  5. Performance Monitoring: Establish and monitor KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) to measure the success and impact of various projects and initiatives, providing regular updates to the executive team.
  6. Executive Support: Provide direct support to the CEO, including managing schedules, preparing materials for meetings, conducting research, and handling other strategic tasks as needed.
  7. External Relations: Represent the company in external meetings, conferences, and events, building and nurturing relationships with key stakeholders, partners, and industry leaders.
  8. Risk Management: Identify potential risks and challenges facing the organization and develop strategies to mitigate them effectively.
