Eclipse - Head of Strategy

Total compensation: Highly competitive

What is Eclipse?

Eclipse is building the fastest Ethereum Layer 2, powered by the Solana VM. Our backers include Polychain, Tribe Capital, and the Solana Foundation. The Eclipse team comprises former Citadel, Airbnb, dYdX, and Uniswap veterans. Eclipse is backed by top investors including Polychain, Tribe Capital, and Accel.
At a high level, many Layer 1 blockchains are monolithic: these blockchains do several things at once, including executing programs, publishing transactions, and establishing the final block ordering. We break up these functions to create high-throughput modular rollups, through which users can deploy their own individual apps. With our infrastructure, any application can spin out as its own SVM blockchain (rollup) without increasing its security risk.

Our full-time Head of Strategy will be responsible for shaping and executing our strategic direction to drive growth, brand recognition, and market penetration in the crypto ecosystem. You will work closely with the CEO to identify market opportunities and build / engage our developer and user communities.
