As the Strategic Partnerships Lead for c=, you will develop and manage the TBD Lightning team's ecosystem of strategic and commercial partners. This role is critical to lay the foundation for the go-to-market and monetization strategies for the c= business.
We are an early stage team with a big vision. We believe in the potential of the lightning network to democratize payments for the world and enable individuals to own their financial destiny.

This market-shaping role will unlock commercial and technical success by establishing ecosystem partnerships, partner-enablement programs, and foremost trusted relationships with early adopters of Lightning technologies.
A big part of TBD’s Lightning strategy is to provide platform solutions, such as APIs and simple integrations for wallets, businesses, and lightning nodes to catalyze liquidity and reliable payments on the Lightning network.
The c= Strategic Partnerships Lead will play a pivotal role in uncovering the strategic, commercial, and technical needs of potential partners – and working with a cross-functional team to drive relationships from discovery through adoption and implementation.

  • Demonstrate curiosity in uncovering and establishing new ecosystem opportunities and excellent communication skills to establish strategies in collaborating with engineering and product leadership teams.
  • Negotiate strategic partnerships and commercial legal agreements with partners.
  • Partner internally with business, product, engineering, and other key stakeholders across c= and TBD to advance roadmaps and strategic deliverables and enable partner-led go-to-market motions.
  • Surface technical and strategic requirements to business and engineering leadership.
  • Understand the balance to strike between incorporating partner feedback and protecting c=’s scope.
  • Collaborate with TBD’s Business and Legal leads in furtherance of partnerships to establish industry standards around decentralized payments and liquidity offerings.

  • Sound strategic business judgment and professional experience in the areas of partnerships, business development or product management in relevant industries (e.g. Bitcoin startups, decentralized platform providers, Layer 2 networks, decentralized finance, wallets, exchanges, fintech or payments).

  • An open mind and curiosity to educate yourself about new technologies and how they map to business growth
  • Experience in driving commercial initiatives across Developer Tools, Integrations, and Web APIs.
