Blockchain – Why Work For Us?


 

Our Guiding Principles

Challenge convention. We challenge the status quo and transcend the boundaries of today to create an open financial future that supports the broadest global community possible. We’ve been told that getting to where we are today would be impossible so we decided we were just getting started.

Empower the end-user. Our customers should own their financial future so we empower them to “Be Your Own Bank”. Our users come first.

Sanctify security. Our users’ security and privacy are critical to our success and we will not forsake them in service of our ambition.

Be humble. Be honest. Be human. We build connections with each other and our users by communicating frequently, authentically and openly and we build trust by doing what we say we’ll do. We’re big on accountability and high standards, but not on unnecessary rules.

Delight in the details. We believe we cannot get the big things right if we don’t get the little things right first. Sometimes that makes things harder. Luckily, we’re ok with hard.

Our Mission

We are on a mission to build a more open, accessible, and fair financial future, one piece of software at a time. Blockchain’s engineering team is building technologies that are revolutionizing the financial services industry by empowering millions across the globe to authenticate and transact immediately and without costly intermediaries.

Blockchain is the world's leading software platform for digital assets. Offering the largest production blockchain platform in the world, we share the passion to code, create, and ultimately build an open, accessible and fair financial future, one piece of software at a time. Our software has powered over 100M transactions and empowered users in 140 countries across the globe to transact. We also offer tools for developers and real-time transaction data for users to analyze the burgeoning digital economy.

    I have been working at Blockchain full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Teammates, across departments, who truly believe in the company's mission.

    Fast-paced, exciting work.

    Managers who care about employees' happiness and success.

    Excellent culture.

    Despite the abundance of knowledge, skill, and talent found throughout Blockchain, you'd have a tough time finding a more down to earth group of people.

    Great perks and quality benefits.

    Cons

    The industry is fast paced and ever evolving. So is work at Blockchain. Personally, I find this to be exciting, but it's surely not for everybody. If you just want to punch in at 9, go through the motions, punch out at 5, and collect a paycheck, this job is not for you.

    If you want to collaborate with wildly talented people to change the world, even if it means sometimes working late or lending a hand to another team, I can't imagine a better place to work than Blockchain.

    The interview process can be fairly lengthy. However, after seeing the caliber and character of their hires, it's clear that the process works.
