Mission: We are building an open, accessible and fair financial future, one piece of software at a time.
If you missed the news last week, we have partnered with GV and Lakestar and have secured the highest Series B since Brexit!
Haha for a Friday: "The admittedly unimaginatively named Blockchain is arguably Britain's shining star in the space." Regardless thanks BI for the shoutout to our buzziest CEO Peter Smith.
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.
We are on a mission to build a more open, accessible, and fair financial future, one piece of software at a time. Our technology is 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 are using new technology to build a radically better financial system. 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 (More than a year)
The coworkers are the biggest draw at Blockchain. You're surrounded by smart and thoughtful people who are eager to help and share their knowledge. Every day you can learn something new. The products and space are exciting as well, and it's enjoyable to get to work on something that's cutting edge. The company also provides excellent benefits and the work/life balance is quite good.
Management at the company is young. They've made great strides recently to hire more experienced people into these roles, but the inexperience of some will no doubt rear it's ugly head now and then.
Advice to Management
Allow yourselves and others to delegate; don't try and always be involved in the minutiae. Be more proactive about your employees growth internally.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Blockchain (New York, NY) in December 2017.
HR phone screen, conversation with the hiring manager aka person who I would report to, mini project that i had 72 hours to complete, 1 day on-site and one round call with CEO.
