At Electric Coin Company (ECC), we’re on a mission to empower everyone with economic freedom and opportunity. We invented and support Zcash (ZEC), a privacy-preserving digital currency built on strong science. In support of our mission, ECC is focused on building a world class user experience for ZEC.
As our first Defi Alchemist, you will be responsible for ensuring that ZEC (and/or synthetics) is widely supported and available for use in decentralized finance and Web3. This may include identifying and supporting the development of synthetics, support across various Defi ecosystems including DEXs, lending / borrowing options, collateralization, sourcing liquidity, etc.
You will have a vision for ZEC in Defi and Web3, a strategic perspective of what needs to be done, the ability to build and deliver a clear plan of action, and then the will to make it happen.
You are both a leader and doer and are able to drive outcomes through persuasion and influence. You will report into the Growth Team.
- Identify opportunities for cross-chain ZEC adoption within Defi and across the emerging Web3 ecosystem.
- Work with ECC product marketing to research and position ZEC to have the greatest positive impact for Web3 natives and ZEC holders.
- Work with ECC growth marketing to elevate ZEC awareness with those interested in Defi in order to deliver continual excitement about ZEC, privacy, and its uses.
- Develop relationships with key influencers, practitioners and market makers to bring ZEC to life across Defi.
- Develop proposals and engage with target communities to build support.
- Track the business-logic trade-offs, risks and developments in existing and emerging cross chain bridges and interoperability technologies.
- Serve as ECC’s eyes and ears across Defi and Web3.
