Medici Ventures, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Overstock.com, oversees a growing portfolio of groundbreaking technical companies within the blockchain space including tZERO. While blockchain technology may sound foreign to you, you’ve probably heard of its first killer app: Bitcoin. Ravencoin (RVN), our new and improved version of Bitcoin, prevents dominance by mega mining pools and provides a free, open-source platform for everyday folk.
tZERO, a majority owned portfolio company of Medici Ventures, democratizes, expands, and strengthens capital markets using blockchain technologies. tZERO’s blockchain technologies aim to revolutionize the market and fix the inherent inefficiencies of Wall Street so that financial processes are less beholden to traditional, institutional market structures. By integrating blockchain technologies with existing market processes, tZERO’s platform reduces settlement time and costs, and increases efficiency, transparency, and auditability
We were the first major retailer to accept Bitcoin as payment — all the way back in 2014! Since then, Overstock and Medici Ventures have worked hard to push the development and innovation of blockchain technology. Blockchain is the future of technology, and we are leading the way!

I have been working at Overstock.com full-time (More than 10 years)
Very flexible in the department I work in, the activities the company puts on are fun and engaging, lots of things to do around the company campus. Fairly central location, and the CEO is one of the coolest people to talk to. He's led the most incredible life, and he's one of the smartest most intelligent people I've ever met. Not often you have a CEO who engages with employees like he does.
Some of the management like my own senior management I've met a couple of times. My direct manager that I report to is all I probably need to talk to. Some re-organization changes recently made kind of made it unclear as to what department my team belongs to. So, there was that confusion, and for the most part my team is ignored by the department.
Advice to Management
More interaction, and involvement with individual teams I think would be helpful. Communication is getting better, but there are still some areas to be ironed out.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Overstock.com (Salt Lake City, UT) in May 2017.
It was very professional but casual. I was in a large conference room and met with 3-4 different people during the process. I then met with the VP of people care and was able to ask him the direction of the company and how I could help fulfill that vision.
