Wally is a wallet infrastructure company that is helping to onboard the next billion users onto crypto products. We are working on a unique approach to signing people up for crypto apps to ensure that people don’t have to store private keys, and they can log into crypto products in a familiar way, such as with a username and password, or methods like Sign in with Google and Sign in with Apple. We believe that the next wave of successful crypto apps will need to appeal to users who aren't familiar with tools like Metamask and aren't comfortable with private key custody. We have the first production version of the product deployed and have onboarded our initial set of pilot customers.
We are looking for a founding engineer to take over the API and infra, continue to build out new features, recruit and lead new team members, and contribute in countless other ways to help build the business.
Wally makes it easy to integrate wallets into an application without needing blockchain and security expertise. We make it simple for companies to provide the ease-of-use that users are accustomed to from top consumer crypto apps like Dapper, Sorare, and Coinbase without the onerous technical and regulatory efforts that those companies had to go through.
Wally has raised funding from a series of top-notch early stage funds and angel investors, led by Afore.vc, Engineering Capital (Ashmeet Sidana), and top angels including Justin Kan, Matt Knox (Reddit), Sriram Krishnan, Garrett Lord (Handshake), Hareesh Nagaraj (Audius), Shiva Rajaraman (Head of Product, OpenSea), Lydia Hylton (Bain Capital Crypto), Dan Porter (Overtime), and Meera Clark (Redpoint Ventures).
We’re based in NYC and looking to hire in person. We believe that in-person collaboration is strategically important for a company at our stage — both for velocity and company culture. I'm willing to relocate to SF for the right candidate as well and found the company there.

Mayank Jain is a former engineer and product manager at Reddit where he worked on the Growth team and impacted nearly every facet of the business, including user growth, subreddit growth, revenue, and safety.
