Islands is a technology company that builds economic infrastructure for the community economy. Communities of all sizes can use our software to manage digital assets and pay people and projects globally. Our vision is to create a new community platform that is open and accessible.

We are funded by major VC funds and individuals such as founders and executives from Reddit, Solana, Polygon, Coinbase, Twitch, Shopify, Notion and more.


We're looking for a seasoned engineering leader to help us build the best web3 platform and a highly effective technical team. This is a leadership position that works closely with the founders and manages the technical aspects of the crypto product engineering team to bring our vision to reality.
 
The ideal candidate for this role has a deep personal interest and professional experience leading crypto/web3 teams and enjoys building out social infrastructure on top of decentralized protocols.
 
Here’s what your day to day looks like:
  • Manage process, people, and technology
  • ↳ Process: What occurs when?
  • ↳ People: Who's involved and how are they motivated?
  • ↳ Technology: What will we use to get there?
  • Work with founders on company strategy to balance product priorities with business objectives
  • Increase product velocity while maintaining a high bar for quality
  • Recruit and retain a next-level team of technical web3 engineers
  • Help build a culture that balances innovation, diversity, and execution
  • Build relationships internally and externally including but not limited to users, customers, partners, and developers

We’re looking for someone who:

  • 5+ years of experience as an individual contributor building full-stack web and mobile software products that are robust and scalable
  • 5+ years of experience as a people manager
  • Experience recruiting, mentoring and retaining high-performing engineering teams along with leading technical architecture and sprint planning
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills to collaborate with both technical and non-technical stakeholders

Bonus if you have this:

  • Contribute and maintain open-source projects
  • Experience as a head of engineering or engineering leader at an early stage startup (managing over 25+ people)
  • Experience building and scaling a full-stack product team
  • Experience building and scaling products at scale

While a degree in CS is nice, you don't need one – or any other kind of degree – to work here. Some of the best people come from non-traditional backgrounds and disciplines, and we’re dedicated to supporting our employees’ education and growth.
 
Islands is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our business better. If you think you're a good match for our vision and values, we'd love to hear from you!
 
We're honored you're considering joining us.
