Who we are

<aside> 📌 Skip is building sovereign MEV products for sovereign blockchains (focus on the Cosmos ecosystem and Rollups) to advance the security and financial sustainability of crypto markets.

We’re dedicated to building tools and infrastructure to create healthy and expressive blockspace markets


We’re a Series A company based in NYC, and we’re looking to finish building out our core team.

We focus on hiring the core team and senior talent to work together in person in NYC to build a collaborative and supportive culture. But we’re still open to hiring best-in-class remote talent anywhere within 6 hours of the NYC timezone.

Core team member responsibilities

  1. Work to solve hard technical problems at the cutting edge of blockchain research alongside the founders
  2. Be empowered to make bold technical and strategic decisions
  3. Play a critical role in determining the people we hire, our culture, our engineering practices, and the products we ship.

How we work

  1. We value ambition, work ethic, and m (slope) over prestige, accomplishments, and y-intercept
  2. We value thoughtful and contentious dialogue over siloed and unilateral decision-making
  3. We value acknowledging uncertainty/weakness and seeking support over unabated confidence and solo performances
  4. We’re obsessive about documenting everything, learning, and shipping as fast as possible
