Swell is a leading name in restaking. With more than $1B in TVL across our liquid staking token, liquid restaking token, and upcoming L2, Swell is speedrunning the construction of a new restaking ecosystem in which distributed applications are now free to bootstrap growth and security off the back of Ethereum itself.

As we celebrate the first anniversary of our mainnet launch, we're looking to scale the team with like-minded individuals that share our vision and appetite to innovate within the Ethereum ecosystem.

What We Are Looking For
We’re a lean and agile team relentlessly driven by startup values to positively shape the future of Ethereum. We work from first principles, learn quickly, iterate fast, and test continuously. It is this ethos that has helped us get to where we are today.

You should take pleasure in solving hard problems and working with a team you’re proud of. This is a full-time role with strong autonomy and independence, with the ability to carve and shape the protocol with your contributions. We value a thoughtful and collaborative software development process, coupled with a pragmatic approach to problem solving and delivering quality code. If that sounds like you then we look forward to hearing from you!
