Novel Labs is hiring a

The Opportunity

Novel Labs is a web3 production studio developing NFTs, storytelling, gaming, community and real-world value.

Stories shape our world…

From Dreamtime to Disney, storytelling has the power to influence our collective understanding and perception of the world.

It has the power to entertain, educate, and change lives.

At Novel, we believe storytelling can create worlds for our imaginations to explore. Blockchain technology allows us to make those worlds a little more real, shareable, and a lot more valuable.

As a web3 production studio, we harness NFTs and decentralised storytelling to expand and enrich the Yuga Labs universe. As characters, clothing, brands, animated series, games, and much, much more.

We equip collectors with the means to create with their IP.

Novel Labs are a band of storytellers, technologists, artists, decentralists, digital sculptors, and the curiously minded. We all share a professional fascination with exploring and pushing the frontiers of art and storytelling in web3 and we welcome those that share our passion.

What you’ll learn: You’ll be on the bleeding edge of Web3!

  • A once in a generation chance to explore a new business model on the path to decentralisation - what more exciting time to engage in a nascent industry. Value creation is a big driver here, and the opportunity to own part of what you build.
  • Who you will work with: Our amazing team of Web3 fanatics and some of the most exciting partners in this space!
  • You’ll be at the forefront of defining the industry alongside some of the most prominent leading minds and figures in web3.
  • With that, we’re a creative lighthouse. You’ll be working with the world’s S-tier talent in gaming brands, animation studios, and major fashion brands

How we work: Intentionally Remote-first; Open and aspiring to be ‘silo-free’; Flexible and asynchronous.

    • With new ways of building business, comes new ways of working: (Office hours Mon-Fri 9-5 are a hang-over from the industrial revolution and ‘Owner vs Worker’ mentality. This is the true digital revolution!) We are a truly decentralised and distributed team, and the way we choose to operate embraces that so that we are asynchronous, inclusive, flexible and outcome-focussed.
    • You have autonomy in what you do and the ability to make a real impact. We believe in the ethos of ‘hire smarter than you’ and letting those people loose to do what they do best

How we behave: We are a people-first team with a real focus on supporting one another - we were made in the storm!

    • Our operating values centre around being quality-driven, level-headed in a fast-paced environment and behaving compliantly.
    • The sum of our parts is greater than that of the whole and it is ESSENTIAL that we have each others’ backs and pull together as a team.
    • We want to be on the right side of history (it can be a bit ‘Wild Westy’ out there!) We’re investing in our future as ‘good actors in this space’ and are layering in CSR (corporate social responsibility) as part of our infrastructure. We see compliance as a competitive advantage.

How we look after you: Burn-out in this industry is rife and we don’t want to be a contributing factor. Health is wealth!

    • People aren’t happy or effective when they are tired, stressed and over-worked. We encourage you to take at least 1 week off in each quarter plus public holidays and take time to spend doing things that are important to you with the people who matter.
    • (We’d prefer not to count up ‘holiday days taken’ as we’re really focussed on the work being done rather than when you do it!)
    • Weekly 1:1 check-ins from line managers and colleagues, and continuous wrap-around support.
    • Incentivised and rewarded for impact and contribution;
    • You can choose to be paid in fiat (local currency) or Crypto (USDC, USDT or Eth)

How we socialise:

    • International team off-sites, travel, local meet-ups.If you’re part of Novel, you’ve community everywhere.
    • We are a decentralised community that hosts events around the world weekly.
      • A bank vault in New York
      • An incredible 6 star luxury Finca in Ibiza
      • A yacht in Miami
      • A speakeasy in London
      • A forest retreat in Frankfurt
      • You’ll have access to exclusive blockchain events around the world.
    • The friendliest community to hang out in when you’ve finished being a keyboard warrior for the day
