  • You will craft experimentation frameworks tailored for Sui’s technical design.
  • You will work closely with the core engineering team to assess the performance of Sui’s tokenomics design and recommend upgrades.
  • You will work closely with the product team to deliver actionable insights for all verticals including digital identity, digital commerce, gaming, and asset ownership.

  • Strongly independent, ability to execute an end-to-end project with little to no oversight, including ideation, design, implementation, and interpretation.
  • A generalist who feels comfortable both identifying and constructing a simple dashboard with highly targeted metrics and creating a sophisticated data model that teases out complex relationships from a sea of noise.

Nice to Haves:
  • Familiarity with distributed systems including blockchain architecture and composable smart contracts.
  • Experience, either as a user or professionally, of on-chain finance products such as DeFi protocols.
