Senior Manager - Business Development
1 month ago
A bit about us:
Unique blockchain assets (“NFTs”) have grown in popularity rapidly over the past few months. These unique assets allow people to own anything from in-game items, to digital art, to music, and financial instruments.
However, they are highly illiquid: transactions take minutes or hours to confirm, and Ethereum can process fewer than 5 NFT per second for the whole world combined. To solve this problem for ourselves and for others, we have built Immutable X, a next-generation protocol for trading blockchain assets with instant trade confirmation, massive scalability, and no gas fees without compromising user custody.
The goal of Immutable X is to help developers and businesses scale their asset-creation by using our protocol for creating and trading these unique assets (“NFTs”).
We are searching for a Senior Business Development Manager to lead engagement with our key partners and create high-value mutually beneficial partnerships. You will play a pivotal role in ensuring the future of digital asset trading is on public, decentralised infrastructure.
