  • JD from an accredited U.S. Law School; licensed in good standing with state bar 
  • 5+ years of experience in intellectual property rights 
  • 2+ years in a fast-paced technology company 
  • Creative thinker who is comfortable with change, ambiguity and pace, and is able to bring a first principles approach to building scalable processes
  • A love of sports, collectibles, and/or popular culture 

What we offer: 

Our team-based culture provides the foundation for people to do their best work and constantly learn and grow. We offer a full slate of benefits, including competitive salaries, stock options, health coverage, and unlimited vacation.  Given that we’re an early stage startup our benefits package continues to evolve as we do. 

To build the creative, innovative community we aspire to be, we know we need different perspectives and lived experiences.  We value diversity and difference and believe that creating a place in which everyone can be their authentic self is the key to our success. Join us to find out what it means to be part of a new blockchain-enabled marketplace for the next generation of fans and collectors.

What projects are you most excited about?

The two projects I am working on, and feel super excited about, are the Collectible Gallery and the Candy Marketplace. We are not just creating another NFT marketplace, but we are creating a brand new, user-centered, immersive collecting experience that the community and our users want to have and feel excited about as well.
