The internet today is broken. Billions of people don’t have digital property ownership rights over their data, or the economic rewards associated with the value they create online. This is not what early internet pioneers thought they were building. Unstoppable Domains is on a mission to fix this by providing secure, user owned & controlled identity to every Internet user in the form of NFTs for authentication, payments, and secure data sharing.
In this role, you will lead a team of full-stack engineers building and improving the tools that enable other developers & companies to build on top of our domains platform. This includes our open source libraries, containerized services, APIs, and (to some degree) the developer-focused landing pages and documentation platforms.
