Celestia is the first modular blockchain network. By decoupling consensus from execution, Celestia enables anyone to easily deploy their own blockchain, without the overhead of bootstrapping a new consensus network. Blockchains on Celestia are free from constraints, making them scalable, sovereign, and secure.

About the Team

Celestia Labs is remote first and highly distributed, with English as our primary language for communication. We are looking for self-starters excited about working in a fast-paced startup environment. We do not require employees to live in specific time zones, but much of the team lives and works in the European and US time zones. As such, employees are expected to be available as needed for scheduled team and company events. Generally, these are scheduled between 12 pm and 5 pm UTC.
