Decentralized Future Metalink's future looks like a decentralized utopia where our community of avid NFT and crypto traders are actively shaping the future of Metalink's ecosystem from reputation protocol algorithms to the NFT swap mechanics. - The Tech Our tech stack will be as future-proof as possible without sacrificing security, scalability, and usability.

Metalink is a small team of crypto enthusiasts from all walks of life. It's what makes crypto, crypto. You can be anyone you want. Welcome to the Metaverse.

  • --'- anything worth doing is going to be hard
    • --- if you're going to do something, do it well
      • --'- find big problems that are worth solving
        • --'- find the brightest and most innovative solutions
          • ---- deliver, deliver, deliver
            • --- make mistakes; it's the best way to learn
              • ---- provide positive and negative feedback This set of guiding principles helps us stay tightly aligned and loosely coupled. All that means is that when we're not together, we can take comfort knowing that we're all tracking by the North Star, so we'll all end up in the same place. ------ Logistics Metalink is headquartered in sunny Los Angeles, California. We say that without actually having an office because we'll eventually have one, and it'll be in LA. Our team currently operates remotely via Slack, Clubhouse (Shortcut), Airtable, Figma, and Zoom. We're a seed-stage startup who understand that runway and burn matter, but we know that people matter more. At Metalink you'll get a salary, equity / tokens, health insurance, and unlimited vacation. - Who are you? You enjoy ideating, designing, building, and delivering. Uncertainty doesn't scare you. If it did, you would be scared the entire time you were at Metalink. Pivoting and pivoting based on learnings derived from data is the name of the game. You understand that wearing multiple hats may be required at a startup this early. You know the power of fast iteration, and fully embrace the test & learn methodology. You're an independent thinker, but also collaborative and always willing to lend a hand. You desire autonomy, yet understand the importance of communication and collaboration. You are not married to any technology or solution and believe in the right tool for the job. You not only believe in being data-driven, but you live it. This means you understand that you can't improve what you don't measure. - What's my job?
