Mission & Key Concepts

Dapper Labs, the company behind CryptoKitties, NBA Top Shot, NFL All Day, UFC Strike and the Flow blockchain, uses blockchain technology to bring NFTs and new forms of digital engagement to fans around the world, paving the way to a more open and inclusive digital world starting with games and entertainment.

The serious business of fun and games on the blockchain

No jargon or nonsense. Just good fun.

Dapper Labs uses the power of play to deliver blockchain-based experiences and digital collectibles that are made for you and ready for the real world.

Blockchain is for you.

Blockchain is the biggest thing to happen to the internet since the iPhone. It will reshape how we use and interact with digital worlds.

But for this technology to realize its real-world potential, it needs to, y’know, be used. By people. Real people, in the real world—not just industry insiders and early adopters.

Current Challenges

  • For all the Dapper Labs' brands, build and manage a thoughtful product roadmap that aligns stakeholder expectations, and clearly define areas of focus
  • Evolve and engage communities, collectors and brand fans
  • Make Flow blockchain as secure, quick and reliable as it's possible, make the nodes run 100% smooth

Dapper Labs is accelerating the move to Web3 by building new apps and platforms that enable great user experiences while being accessible to hundreds of millions of fans of organizations like the NBA and NFL, for example. We’re ready to empower even more to bring mainstream-ready user experiences and scale to web3 applications.

culture

At Dapper Labs, our people are our greatest strength. We’re proud to have a diverse team of creators and founders who flourish in an environment of personal autonomy, where professional growth is encouraged. We value our culture and diversity above all else, regardless of where you came from, what you studied, or who you used to work for. Titles and years of experience don't matter to us – impact, authenticity, and values alignment do. We're a remote-first organization, with most of the team working in Pacific Time.

  • Zen Workspace

While we are a remote-first organization, our HQ office is dog-friendly, welcoming of children, and crafted for comfort – our workspace is constantly improving to help our team members reach the most creative and productive version of themselves. We love hosting team trips here!

  • Staying Together

As a remote-first organization with team members in different locations, time zones and schedules, it can be hard to have those daily interactions you may have once had in an office. We offer our teams a quarterly social budget to ensure they are taking the time to get to know each-other and have fun. On top of this, we push to get teams together in-person on a regular basis throughout the year! We know how important that face time can be.
