Description

We’re looking for a technical product manager to drive the Skip API from early signs of product market fit into a market leadership.
The ideal candidate for this role would probably be bored by most jobs with “product manager” in the title. They’re animated to do whatever it takes to drive their product and company to success — whether that’s sales, dev rel, technical architecting, roadmapping, writing docs, or project management. They don’t consider any task below them or any activity out-of-their wheelhouse. They have multiple skill spikes that rarely coexist: deep technical intuition, excellent organizational skills and follow-through, and the ability to communicate effectively in writing & verbally in almost any situation. Their peers probably consider them to be “good at everything”. They would make an excellent founder and might have founded other companies in the past.

Role

Work closely with the leadership team and other product leaders at the company to develop and execute the product roadmap for the Skip API and integrate it into our other products
Stay in constant contact with the Skip API’s customers, get to know them & their businesses, and drive the roadmap around their needs above all else
Contribute to the go-to-market and sales strategy & execution for the Skip API, including expanding to enterprises, emergent rollup ecosystems, and other established L1 ecosystems (Ethereum, Solana, etc…)
Collaborate with engineers and team leads to maintain (and accelerate) our best-in-class shipping velocity
Do whatever it takes to build a market-leading product and cultivate legitimate developer love

Qualifications

Required
Experience successfully building new things from scratch for long periods of time and through hardship
Ability to synthesize many disparate pieces of information and viewpoints from different sources into high-confidence decisions very quickly — even in highly uncertain circumstances
Excellent written and verbal communication skills
Background in computer science and software engineering
Bonus
Full-time experience working as a software engineer
Understanding of MEV or experience implementing MEV strategies or deploying related infrastructure

Who we are

Skip builds great products that help developers deliver best-in-class blockchain applications to their users more easily. We’re dedicated to making all blockchains more accessible and more powerful, so everyone can participate in the trustless web without limits. We work with the best teams building blockchains in crypto: dYdX, Celestia, Osmosis, Neutron/LIDO, and many more. Our products help developers secure, swap, and transfer millions of dollars of tokens every day.
We’re a fast-growing seed-series A startup based in NYC looking to build out our core team.
We’d like junior talent to work together in person in NYC to build a collaborative and supportive culture. But we’re open to hiring best-in-class remote talent anywhere in the world.

Core team member responsibilities

Work to solve hard technical problems at the cutting edge of blockchain research alongside the founders
Be empowered to make bold technical and strategic decisions
Play a critical role in determining the people we hire, our culture, our engineering practices, and the products we ship.

How we work

We value ambition, work ethic, and slope over prestige, accomplishments, and y-intercept
We value thoughtful and contentious dialogue over siloed and unilateral decision-making
We value acknowledging uncertainty/weakness and seeking support over unabated confidence and solo performances
We’re obsessive about documenting everything, learning, and shipping as fast as possible

Benefits

Gym membership
18 days of paid leave
Premium health insurance
Competitive regional compensation and above-market equity ownership
Accommodations for remote work
We’re open to arranging paid work trials with potential hires because we think interviews give a very limited view of candidates and the company.
