We believe Ethereum has the potential to solve some of humanity’s most crucial coordination issues. Since our initial inception as a research group, we have sought to scale both its technology and values.

At present, the most pressing bottleneck to the growth of Ethereum is its performance and scalability. We are building the most elegant solution to this problem. We do this in the open (under an MIT open source license) because we believe in open source innovation and its ability to accelerate growth.

OP Labs is building Optimism mainnet, and by extension, the infrastructure that powers all OP-Stack chains. We are improving Ethereum’s performance by orders of magnitude and donating the profits from doing so to funding Ethereum public goods. By operating as a Public Benefit Corporation, OP Labs can align its incentives with the public good and take positive-sum steps toward a sustainable future for the internet.

We’re looking for an ambitious and growth-oriented Product Manager to drive the end-to-end Optimism developer product experience. This person will focus on the developer focused product, the Dapp Developer Console. There is great opportunity to be a leader and influence the direction of high-visibility and high-impact initiatives.

What are the role responsibilities?

  • Own the user experience for the Dapp Developer Console — a guided user interface for application development and deployment.

  • Deep focus on data to draw insights and identify gaps in user-experience to drive end-user engagement

  • Develop deep understanding of rapidly evolving competitive landscape to position Optimism for success
  • Drive long-term growth of Optimism through a combination of data analysis, product ideation, and experimentation to optimize product experiences
  • Use data to understand trends in user behavior and product usage to influence strategy
  • Identify opportunities to drive growth and prioritize them to maximize long term growth
  • Communicate results and influence key decision makers, including product, and business leaders

  • A passion for working on a community based product and finding simplicity in solutions
  • A data-driven approach, understanding of MVP and good judgment on when to ship
  • Experience participating in the DeFi space as a user —ability to articulate the difference between Zero knowledge rollups and optimistic rollups and articulate the tradeoffs between different Layer 1 blockchains.
  • Experience building SaaS products where developers are the primary users
