Now Hiring for Shell Protocol

A list of open positions and needed skills on the Shell team

A long voyage needs a full complement. Now and in the months ahead, the Shell Protocol team is filling its ranks as the Ocean beckons. A balanced team requires a diverse set of backgrounds and disciplines, and we are seeking everyone from core developers to writers and graphic designers. Across all these roles, the key unifier is curiosity, creativity and a consistent work ethic.

If that sounds like you, you will find yourself among like minds, and perhaps at the start of an incredible adventure. All jobs are remote, although working visits to the Shell Protocol house in Honolulu are encouraged. These positions can be full-time, part-time, or contract depending on your needs and availability.

Don’t see the right position? Don’t let that stop you. We are always open to hear from motivated individuals, especially with unique skills and ideas or a passion for DeFi.
