Kraken Digital Asset Exchange – Why Work For Us?

We value humility over hubris. All Krakenites are created equal and we treat each individual with respect, no matter the title.

Autonomy gives us the freedom to explore all of our potential. We don’t box ourselves in physically or mentally.

Above all, we are kind. From executive leadership onwards, we are committed to making Kraken a welcoming and respectful community.

Security for our employees and clients is paramount. Krakenites feel passionately about protecting our clients and each other so while you’re researching Kraken, you might find we keep a low profile.

Like our namesake, the mighty and elusive kraken of legend, we too shroud ourselves in the deep to keep our assets secure.

About Security at Kraken

Kraken is decentralized and international, just like the cryptocurrency that powers us. We are looking for the best talent, wherever that person might be. While we all don’t physically work in the same office everyday, we are united through our passion for crypto and changing the world. We have a vibrant online community where we work, play, and travel together. Whether you’re coming from a big office or continuing a remote career, you’ll always feel connected to over 500 Krakenites throughout the world.

Digital Nomads

We encourage Krakenites to make the most of a remote lifestyle. Work and travel with like-minded nomads to gain a better perspective on the world, fueling your creativity and productivity as you grow with us.

Flexibility and Autonomy

Remote life gives you autonomy and freedom, taking out the stresses of a daily commute or the rigid structure of some office environments. We’re results-based, not time-based. We want you to work when and how you need to keep you at your most productive.

“We believe that diverse teams are the strongest teams because they arrive at the most creative solutions.” Jesse Powell, our CEO and Cofounder.
