Come change the world (for real).
We believe that user-ownership is going to play a big part in the future of internet commerce. It's a future where suppliers, creators, workers, & freelancers own more of the upside of the value they create & pay less to intermediaries.
The problem? Today, anyone building real-world applications with web3 tech faces unworkable blockchains with high transaction fees, arcane architectural decisions, lots of jargon, compliance headaches, and limited access to high cost developers — that's all before needing a PHD in tokenomics to make it work.
Say 👋 to Village. We’re building some of the world's most sophisticated and user-friendly L1 blockchain infra & protocols to enable founders & existing businesses to easily unlock the power of web3 technologies and use them in the real world. Making this powerful tech accessible to anyone is going to shape how people buy and sell goods and services on the internet for years to come.
Our founding team has built SaaS, crypto, eCommerce and marketplace companies, and is backed by some of the world’s top crypto & venture investors.
Come join us — we need the best builders in the world to come show us what's possible.
About the Role
