The Role:

Web3 Researcher Reap is looking to add a Web3 Researcher into the Crypto team — someone capable of helping Reap identify, evaluate, and contribute to the opportunities within the crypto economy in the years to come. This person’s average day would be split between externally-facing responsibilities like representing Reap within the crypto community and internally-facing ones like advising internal teams on complex, high-leverage technical decisions. Ultimately, we’re trying to find a futurist: someone who can look at the ongoing explosion of innovation that’s currently taking place within crypto, and help Reap navigate and succeed in this ever changing space!


• Research blockchain protocols and understand blockchain projects to tease out market insights for our products and Reap stakeholders

• Working closely with internal teams on questions around crypto-economic models, smart contract security, and other questions that come up around protocols and software

• Advising our internal teams on technical and product matters, either directly or as a liaison to experts within your network

• Serving as the public face of Reap in highly technical environments (e.g. developer conferences), and bringing back notes and strategic recommendations to the Reap team

• Engaging with the crypto community on social media in a productive, positive way that furthers our reputation as technical leaders in the space

• Serving as an educational resource for all internal teams.



• A minimum of 3 years experience within the Crypto or Web3 space

• Foundational knowledge of math and/or computer science, such that you can influence world-class engineering teams as a peer

• Extensive knowledge of ongoing crypto projects, and a deep network of high-value relationships within the community

• Philosophical interest in the capacity of crypto to improve the world



• Exceptional team player

• Extreme open-mindedness

• Clear and concise communication, in both 1:1 and public settings

• Affable style for community engagement

• Empathy toward the concerns of others, both within and outside Reap

• Adaptability in rapidly changing circumstances
