About Interlay

Interlay envisions a future where blockchains can seamlessly connect and interact, regardless of their design and purpose. Anyone should use any digital currency on any blockchain platform without restrictions.

We are building a decentralized cross-chain settlement layer, “a network to connect them all”. We work with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Polkadot and others, shipping the infrastructure for cross-chain applications, including PolkaBTC, the official trustless Bitcoin-Polkadot bridge, in collaboration with Parity Technologies, funded by the Web3 Foundation.

Our products are designed to be inherently decentralized and the majority of our code is open source. We follow a research-driven approach, back up our work by top-tier scientific papers, and collaborate with leading research labs around the world.

Role and Responsibilities

We are hiring a Business Development and Communication manager to assist us with various aspects of integration, sales, and outreach efforts on the PolkaBTC project.

You will be joining an ambitious team with multi-year expertise in blockchain protocols, security and cryptography. There will be a steep learning curve, we will expect you to stay up to date with technological developments, and you will be encouraged to apply your ideas.
