As one of our very first fully technical hires, it goes without saying how important your role in all of that will be.

As such, we are very happy to compensate everyone with significant equity stakes, as we believe they will substantially grow in value. * Our budget for this role is $100,000 - $150,000 annual compensation + a meaningful equity stake. *We do not partner with recruiters and agencies for any of our roles.*
