Benefits
Above all else, you’ll get the chance to lead product development alongside our tight-knit founding team, with experience selling two AI patents to Microsoft, winning a gold medal at the International Olympiad in Informatics, and scaling/exiting a development agency with 15+ employees while at Harvard. We also all work together in-person in our downtown SF office, located just blocks from Union Square. Industry-standard salaried compensation plus equity.

The Application Process
Please send the following info to Careers@GameFi.com:

  • Examples of mobile apps, games, or other interesting projects you’ve worked on
  • In lieu of a cover letter, please include a 2-4 sentence answer to the following: what’s the best “hack” you’ve come up with? It does not need to be technical.

From there, we’ll loop back around with the next steps (an interview and take-home implementation task).
